Found this little beauty in the middle of a woodland area today. She's tiny at just a smidge under four metres tall and about three metres wide! No other stone remnants immediately nearby, but there are the remains of a two storey building about fifty metres away. I'd say this is dating back to the 1880's or 1890's.

Bungalows are great - ours stops my wife falling down the last few stairs as she used to do, wearing silly slippers ;)

And before you say it, we moved in 9 years ago before I got old :D

Cheers :)

Actually the main reason was to get away from the nasty neighbours trying to pick fights with us.
A nice bungalow with a (distant) view of a river was just a bonus.

Cheers :)

Well the nasty neighbours that moved in and the memories we’d sooner forget were also considerations. Now we live in the countryside instead of suburbia.

After my husband died I remained in our townhouse for several years but eventually started thinking about other options. For me, the choice was a condominium apartment unit on the entry level of the building so from the adjacent parking lot I have only a couple of steps to go up before being on my landing and at my door..... Previously I was in a townhouse with two levels and even though at that time I was still only in my forties I was looking and thinking ahead to the day when I’d be older and really appreciate living all on one level, with easy access to my home. The primary drawing-card, though, to me with regard to this community was the fact that it is on a small “lake” (actually a storm-retention pond), so it is quite scenic and we have beautiful views every season of the year and waterfowl to watch and occasionally photograph......

Had to give 'that talk' to the Boof about the portal in the cupboard on Sunday...

Actually, this was just me playing with a little portable LED panel [Falconeyes F7 150x80mm/6x3"] whilst out on an urban exploration of an old 1880's two story beauty in the hills that has been untouched for about twelve years or so; there's a tragic tale behind it ending up this way that's a wee bit too long to share here.
