Last weekend I took a trip out to an open home I saw in our local paper. In 1993 after we arrived in Katikati we began the process of building a home on our kiwifruit orchard. In January 1994 we moved in. It was a basic three bedroom home but I still remember the joy putting it together gave me.
Planting the gardens
It was amazing to see that almost twenty years later the linoleum I chose is still in good condition and remember the times I watched out this window as the kiddywinkles played outside while I prepared another meal.
Not bad for a newbie tiler I think
The owners were lovely and happy to get a history on the building of the house. They were gracious enough to let me wander through both the house and time as I journeyed through my past. When it sells I hope the new owners know that it was built with love.
