Welcome to my journey - I am building a house in a new estate called Mernda Villages, North of Melbourne. I am building the Porter Davis Regent 21 house. I am a first home owner so everything is new, exciting, confusing and stressful all at once

I am starting down the garden path to trying to live a simple life. I think I've been heading that way for a while but I am now focussing more energy into. A simple life doesn't mean an easy life though. I already have a vegie garden out the back which I am expanding into the front yard, I have egg laying chickens, a few meat chickens and a few quails for both eggs and meat. I live in the northern suburbs of Melbourne and my block is 448sqm which also has a 3 bedroom house on it.
