We bought a run-down, but sound, Queenslander and spent a couple of years renovating it.
To keep the pot boiling we also bought two small business’s, a school bus run for me and a shop with the plant required to manufacture “Rubber Stamps” for Julie.

As well as the renovations we also planted a “native garden” which I’m pleased to report has come on a treat in the years since planting.
When we sold this house we actually traded a cheaper house, but as we never lived in it I haven’t included it.

Suffice to say, we went, we saw, we enjoyed to the full and were ready for the next step down “our road.”
