We are headed over to New Zealand for a few weeks so I will be absent for a bit.
We are headed over to celebrate my Mums 60th and to check out the land we have purchased. While we are away we have house sitters coming to look after the animals.
We will be making some plans about building a house and setting up the property. It will be another year or so before we move but we are starting to plan for the move.
At this stage we are looking at building a straw bale home and I have been working on some plans. Hubby's dad is a retired architect and he and my mother in law are coming over as well. They will spend a few days with us then heading off to do some sightseeing on their own. Hubby's dad will help us design a house so the stage we are at now is working out exactly what we want.
I would be interested in hearing about your experience if you have built a house before. Any tips for us in this early planning stage?
