media gallery / 2001 / house construction
this is the finished product, but here's how we got there....
412 roosevelt court
ventura, CA 93003
we werent looking for a NEW house when our crazy realtor (maggie bird) showed us the presidential estates development just before christmas 2000.
sascha came back to sign the contract in january 2001.
peta & sascha flew out for 5 days in february to pick out fixtures and fittings and find a doctor for all the pregnancy check ups that were to come (aly had her first vacation away from mommy and daddy at grammy & grandads house)
we all moved to a rented apartment in peninsula road (channel islands) (making a short trip to tokyo on the way).
house is due to be finished but rain delayed things.
we finally move in on 4th july (not easy since all the roads around our old apartment were blocked off for the huge harbour firework display!
stages of development:
the great room - for a great room we sure managed to fill it with toys pretty quickly. the inflatable train in the shot was a gift from great nanny for alys 1st birthday.
