There's a little island near Brisbane called Karragarra, on which sits a little house we like to call 'Karra'd Away'. It's available for holiday rentals, in case you're interested. We've recently decided to start fixing the house up a little, to make it a more contemporary beach house and more attractive to holiday renters. I plan to chart the process on this blog, from slowly developing the gardens (and it will be slowly - I'm a terrible gardener), to painting and re-flooring and building new internal walls. I'll also be posting photos of inspirational beach houses and ideas. But first, a few photos of the house to begin with. This is the house from the driveway, although I'm ashamed to say that I took this picture a year or so ago and the garden has definitely gotten worse since this was taken. A lot worse. Amazon worse. But all that will be fixed soon.
There's no shortage of ideas for fixing up this place, but there is a shortage of free time and money. We want to have it fixed up by the end of the year. We want to do it ourselves. We only have the weekends. We'll see how we go.
