Now that it is completed, some more shots of the new house

We have been in the house for about 3 months now and the rest of the street is finished off too.

The fence on the right of our house runs exactly north-south (the first photo is looking northish… Click on them to get bigger images)

Looking right up the fence line (cat prision on the left):

This is the patio area. It is 10AM on a late summer morning, so it looks like we should always have a nice shady patio (important in Australia!)

Looking E from the NW corner of the lot (which is pie shaped) Shed and the 5000L rain water tank. We have rock/pebbles back here.

Looking west from the NE corner of the lot. This will be mainly lawn, with garden around the fence line.

Looking S from the NE corner

And some other street angles.
