About me


Hi, I’m Nicole and this is my blog where I muse about the renovation of our beautiful old Queenslander ‘PEN Y LLECHWEDD’


that I share with my gorgeous husband and my very own ‘Bob the Builder’, Adam………..



Together we bumble our way through our journey with our blended family of 5 children, ranging in age from nearly 18 to 10.


When we are not parenting our children, or renovating our beauty, we are builders who are working to help others realise their own home dreams. This blog is about our experiences renovating, and building dream homes, from a builders perspective, with a little bit of our crazy family life thrown in for good measure. Enjoy! xx
