Welcome to the website of our hand made home. We’ve created this site to chronicle the journey of owner-building a home in Beechworth, Victoria, Australia. You can also connect with us on Facebook.

A big part of our desire for this project is to welcome the involvement of many others. There will always be lots to do on site, and we expect to have something happening most weekends. Sign up as a volunteer and we’ll keep you in the loop. 

Internal ceiling lining progress

Intello internal membrane disappearing behind the internal Baltic pine lining boards. The red cap is covering the MVHR system outlet. And the tangle of wires and LVL at the ridge is a mounting plate for the ceiling fan. Onwards!

Hole for fireplace flue

A pleasingly neat ellipse/circular hole in the ceiling for the fireplace flue. Creating it upside down at height on an angle certainly required focus! Not to mention getting the location correct.
