I’m Bek – a mum to two little girls, wife to a fantastic husband, marketing manager at a global consulting and technology firm, and owner of a house that desperately needs a complete overhaul.
With no renovating experience but a bucket load of ideas, hopes and dreams, we’re embarking on an ambitious project to bring a new lease of life to our 1920s Queenslander in Brisbane’s inner north.
Once a humble worker’s cottage, the house has been subjected to numerous updates of questionable taste over the past century. Its odd layout, various claddings and differing floor heights will be stripped back – and the house extended and beautified, fit for a family in the 21st century. No longer will she languish with her rotting floors and rusted roof…she’ll be reimagined and restored – and in her newly rebuilt form will be a home to our family for this generation.
Join me on our renovation journey…and let’s hope it’s a smooth ride!
