These tiger grass are nearly fence height, planted as about 8 inch tall tube stock 9 months ago. If you are looking at landscaping going tubestock is a great way of saving some bucks! 🌱 . #tigergrass #thysanolaenamaxima #tubestock #savemoney #growth #landscapedesign #landscaping #gardening #plants #privacy #privacyplanting #fenceline #liriope #path #tiles #outdoortiles #granitetile #pebbles #utilityarea #diy #ownerbuilder #builtbyus

Spent a lovely morning out here talking to my chickens and vegetables. This round we have sweet peas, lettuce, capsicum, sorrel, broccolini, strawberries and some alyssum for the bees. Starting to get the first lot of fruit on our passion fruit vine too. Such beautiful weather! ☀️ . #vegetablegarden #vegetables #veges #garden #raisedgardenbeds #fresh #homegrown #sweetpea #lettuce #capsicum #sorrel #broccolini #strawberries #alyssum #passionfruit #yum #chickens #learning #growing #homegrown #backyard #morningwellspent #longweekend #bluesky #sunshine #diy #ownerbuilder #builtbyus

Rainy school holidays means staying in pj’s indefinitely instead of rushing out the door. The.

Stripping decks 😕 . Beautiful fresh blackbutt 🤤 If only we could keep it looking this fresh forever! We weren’t happy with the colour of the original tint so we’re in the process of stripping decks. Concealed fastenings aren’t really cutting it either so hubs has been replacing them with screws. Thinking we’ll just put a clear on it and let it weather naturally. 🤷🏻‍♀️ . #deck #decking #timber #blackbutt #stripped #bare #sanding #screws #natural #fresh #outdoors #outdoorliving #alfresco #granite #tiles #diningroom #landscape #garden #landscapedesign #home #design #modern #diy #weekend #ownerbuilder #builtbyus

This weekends project ✔️ completed! This little trellis project has by far taken the longest out of everything we’ve done. The design phase seemed eternal. I don’t know how many ideas I tried to flog to #handyhusband only to have them shot down (can’t source material, too expensive, not physically possible 🤷🏻‍♀️). Finally settled on this design about 2 weeks ago and here she is. Soon to be covered in jasmine and smelling devine. Also knocked another one up outside the kids tv room but haven’t planted it up yet. 💚💪 . #garden #gardendesign #landscape #landscapedesign #trellis #wire #steelframe #jasmine #climber #courtyard #alfresco #outdoors #deck #granite #tile #outdoortiles #design #planning #possibilities #hardwork #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #diy #ownerbuilder #builtbyus

Lock and load for the first full week of school! Kitchen bench currently looks the complete opposite of this ☝️Lunches are semi made and the pile of stuff for me to do in my lunch break is growing. Hope everyone has had a nice little recharge this weekend. ☀️🌦🏊🏻‍♀️ . #kitchen #kitchendesign #kitchenbench #islandbench #benchspace #caesarstone #black #white #monochrome #blackkitchen #blacksink #blacktap #blackcabinetry #islandbench #butlerspantry #pendantlight #polishedconcrete #interior #homeinterior #homeinspo #queenslandhomes #minimal #modern #design #clean #ownerbuilder #builtbyus

Our bees have settled in and are busy keeping the world turning. We have put the hive outside the kids tv room so we can watch them coming and going. Once they have built the hive up a bit we’ll add the flowhive on top. . #bee #bees #busybees #beekeeping #backyard #backyardbeekeeping #backyardbees #pollinators #garden #beneficial #honey #liquidgold #flowhive #sustainable #sustainableliving #kidstvroom #playroom #glass #windows #louvres #entertainment #watchingbees #ownerbuilder #builtbyus

After a few months of very low output we finally pulled our finger out and finished off the side of the house today. There was some grouting to finish off and rocks to top up. Then found a home for some ladders, the pool scoop and a few other random things and the picture I had in my head is nearly reality! 💚 . #outdoor #landscape #landscapedesign #design #path #sidepath #granite #tiles #granitetiles #outdoortiles #rocks #pebbles #plants #tigergrass #liriope #rhapis #linkedge #planning #progress #hardwork #lotsofhardwork #bluesky #sunshine #housedesign #home #ownerbuilder #builtbyus

Second day back at work after a month off. Enough said. 😩 Here’s some early morning sunshine throwing cool shadows on the firepit seat. . #morning #sunshine #shadow #light #lines #earlymorning #besttimeoftheday #firepit #benchseat #garden #landscape #outdoors #fence #black #white #green #westringiafruticosa #scaevolaaemula #backtowork #sad #needtoretire #ownerbuilder #builtbyus

School holidays - the kids are averaging about 3 outfit changes a day and that’s with them wearing only undies for 80% of the time 😕 Luckily I 🖤 my laundry. . #schoolholidays #kids #mumlife #laundry #laundryroom #itneverends #fashionparade #white #black #monochrome #tiles #tiledesign #pennyrounds #backsplash #mosaic #metallic #caesarstone #planning #design #home #interior #ownerbuilder #builtbyus

We just keep making more work for ourselves! 😆 #handyhusband grew up with his Dad keeping bees. We plan on getting one of his boxes and whacking one of these babies on top for some sweet liquid gold and environmental goodness. But first we need to prep everything. Can’t wait to get it cranking! 🐝 🍯 . #bee #bees #beekeeping #backyard #backyardbeekeeping #backyardbees #pollinators #garden #beneficial #honey #liquidgold #flowhive #sustainable #sustainableliving #preparation #pppppp #morethingstodo #ownerbuilder #builtbyus

On this day 2 years ago we moved into the house. Crazy! Time flies when you’re having fun (and have 427 things on your to-do list)! We are on the home stretch of getting things done, still tinkering here and there but I’m SO glad we have all that hard work behind us! #house #design #housedesign #modern #glass #windows #louvre #deck #pool #grass #gardendesign #backyard #garden #landscape #view #bushland #naturallight #grasstree #bluechalksticks #sunshine #bluesky #progress #hardwork #birthday #anniversary #ownerbuilder #builtbyus
