We are going to start building as soon as we settle on our land in March. Very exciting.
Little ted, before ds was born I went through it all, made it all up into complete sets, broke them down into labeled clip lock bags. I still have all the instructions. A lot of it is 90's vintage, dh's is 80's but he didn't look after his as much as me, ie bite marks! He has one and a half boxes. There is a bit of new stuff, Vikings and aqua raiders. Nerd I know!
I would sell it but I really want the kids to enjoy it too. But definantly no biting!
I'd love a 4 bed house but really ours will do. We are lucky though and live in the sticks so prices weren't so bad.
Becca I hope you find a new place!
Mrs tugs that is so exciting! Have you picked plans yet? I have a house plan in my head I would love to build on a bush block on day.
Yeah we have our plans ready, just waiting for pre-approval from bank (should be a week away) and then they can start to be officially drawn up.
We are moving out to a semi-rural area. Not quite "sticks" but def not urban. We are in an estate though, so we have 2 neighbours right next to us.
Land sizes in WA are miniscule, so we had to move forever away just to be able to afford a backyard 😒
Miss v, that's the best thing about building your first home - by the time you're ready to upgrade, you know the things you would change next time! :-)
We made sure to have a walk in pantry. That was a non negotiable requirement for us lol.
We would be happy with a 3 bedroom still if the bedrooms were big enough, but just need the extra space one way or another. It does mean at the moment we don't hoard anything because if something comes into the house, then something has to leave the house.
Trio - Definitely don't sell the Lego - it costs waaay too much to replace and the retro stuff is much better than what they have in the shops now. A lot of it is very dark and not-so-child-friendly. We can't buy what DS wants for his birthday now, but could have 20 years ago! When I say dark - I'm referring to the LOTR and pirates of the carribean.
