My Favourite Space-with Adam Cox from Fernbrooke Homes

I thought it about time, I brought you a favourite space from our own family. I am proud to introduce my wonderful husband, Adam. Adam has been a builder for 21 years, and is the sole reason I ever contemplated the construction industry as a possible career choice. He is passionate about helping people build their dreams. Together we have had our building company, Fernbrooke Homes for over 4 years. When not building and being a Father to our 5 kids, Adam is rugby league coach, vice president and referees co-ordinator at our local football club.

It was an interesting exercise to ask Adam about his favourite space, it is very different to where I thought he would choose. It is amazing what we think we know about they way our loved ones think. I hope you enjoy this little snippet into our lives.


Tell us a little about yourself?

I’m a father of 5.  Registered Builder of 21 years experience, husband of my amazing wife Nicole and Rugby League coach to children.


Tell us about your favourite space?

I always grew up in an area of country and on acreage so I’ve always had a connection with nature and bush.  My favourite space is around a fire gazing into the embers contemplating the simplicity of life.  We have a fire pit type area at the rear of our property in the middle of Ipswich where I have built seating for all to sit around and enjoy. 


What is it about this space that makes it your favourite space?

It takes the stress out of the everyday (when I have time to use it of course) and is a great area and moment to share some good conversation with family and friends.


What are your favourite items in this space?

The fire and the company along with the simplicity.



How does this space make you feel?

Connected with nature.  My wife feels connected with the beach and says we all need to connect with nature.  I think she is right, because this space makes me feel connected and grounded.



I hope you enjoyed this look into our lives from a different angle, and a sneak peak into the garden.  I so totally thought Adam would choose the lounge room or the front deck.

What is your favourite space? Would you like to share?

  1. I was sure Adam would choose a space inside your beautiful home, so this outside space was a wonderful surprise. You’re so right, we do need to connect with nature, and what better place to do it, than in your own back yard (literally!)

    1. We are really lucky Sammie, this house has everything the two of us need to feel peace in our lives. #blessed xx

  2. Adam I love this space and I like how you think! I was just thinking how much my girls would love to sit around that fire pit and roast marshmallows. Yum! Nicole your house is just lovely on the outside as it is in ( from what I’ve seen on the blog). What a great space to entertain family and friends! When are you inviting us over? X

    1. He he, we must do that soon, the girls would love the fire pit, and my kids would total love your girls xxx

  3. […] This home improvement Thursday, I thought I would share our vegetable garden and how we are using it to improve our home. When we first moved into our home, the back yard was a real mess. Slowly we are transforming it back to what it should have been. During this process we built several no dig vegetable gardens, a firepit and some seating, so that we are able to enjoy all the best parts of the acreage we used to have. You can read a little more about that here and here. […]
