Our first milestone - buying the house

Well, it’s official, Callum and I are the proud owners of our first home together! This morning we both shakely handed over a cheque for a large sum of money to secure the purchase, no backing out now! 

I thought I would take a moment to lay out my hopes and dreams for #notamodelhome. As my friends and family know, I am not really one to share my deepest thoughts and feelings, being a bit shy, I often reserve my opinions for those who know me best.

#notamodelhome will be my first bold step to share my renovating journey with readers from Australia and maybe even across the globe! Although it will be a little orientated around the wonderful city of Canberra, I hope that everyone could read the blog posts and get something useful out of it that may help them with their own renovating experience. 

I want this blog to be an honest experience of the emotional journey of renovating (with your partner) a house to make it your home.  

I truly hope that you can find something positive and useful on here and together we can build a beautifully renovated Canberra/Australia/World! 

Yours in paint, screws and tiles, 

Caitlin (and Callum)
