My house, is a very, very fine house

I have just about finished demolishing our little house to make room for the new one and as the protective walls came down I couldn't help but think of what they had seen. The very private moments of joy and despair, the family holidays by the sea with wet togs and sand on the carpet, the dinner parties roast lamb and pavlova, lamingtons and black tea cos the milk has gone off, fish scales on the bench but she forgave you when she tasted the fish, the steady stream of ants down the wall and up the table leg and the mozzies at nightfall to remind you it ain't never perfect!

Getting a new home then? Well, I'm good with my little place and I'm keeping it. It's free and clear and cheap to live here.

It's usually a mate that wants a bigger and nicer home, and break me getting it but I stopped trying to make them happy years ago.

Now I just want a bigger shop to work on my projects in.

Wish I cold have been there to help; I love taking things apart, pulling nails, making new timber out of old, changing what was into what will be......

Billy....It was in the contract when we bought the land that the house had to go. The new house will only be 170sqm and hopefully built with natural ingredients and self sufficient in energy and waste so I hope I'm not ruining the planet doing it.
Jerry....here in spirit is enough. There is some beautiful timber, wonderful colour and grain. it's too good to build with, I think I'll just make sculptures.
