Why do I need a website?

Over the last few weeks I have been helping some friends/clients get their websites up and running. They've been relatively easy jobs with basic content. This good. Why? Because I think every business needs a website no matter how small you might be. Here are the reasons why... You're never closed. Even when you're not at work your website is! It's a no brainer. You can showcase yourself. Put your best foot forward. Showcase your items, services and previous jobs. People have the ability to find you from any mobile ... read more

Floor Plan Friday: 2 storey home with a view

Hello! Today I am sharing a 2 storey plan with you for those how might have a view and need the kitchen/living on the top floor. Maybe you've got a beach view, or river view or live in the bush. Here's a good spacious floor plan for you... click on the picture to view larger.   There are 2 sets of stairs on this one - external and internal and there's also an added alfresco on the bottom floor.

Around here lately

Howdy! How have you all been? I haven't had a chance to hang out here much this past week, I've been a busy little chicken designing websites and stuff. It's good to be busy though! My big kid Cruise turned 13 on the weekend. So I am officially a mother of a teenager. What? How did that happen? Time has gone too quick. He's changed since this high school thing. My husband and I were talking about it last night. He's growing up and every week I can see he's becoming more and more of his own person. This is not a bad thing, but I am aching ... read more

Floor Plan Friday: Designer & spacious family home

 Howdy! It's Floor Plan Friday today and I have this designer and spacious home to share with you. It's got a very different layout on the front and I really like how to home is built in sections. On the left there is the lounge/master and the right has the other bedrooms. It's separated through the middle with the family/kitchen. The rumpus room is very narrow, so that would be a bit tricky on the styling. Again the laundry is in the perfect spot for me! What do you think about this one? Here is where I found the original plan. Pop here to ... read more
