  1. Hi

    Just saw your blog. We built a Lindrum in Sandhurst with Metricon. We've been in 3 months or so but still heaps to do. Will be looking forward to following your build. Hope you have the same supervisor as us - he was terrific. I'll have to stalk your house now - I think I can work out where it is!!

  2. Hi Sarah,

    We have recently moved from the Sandhurst Club to sunny Brisbane (not that it has been sunny the last week). We are also building with Metricon over here. We loved living at Sandhurst and lived there for 6 years. I am sure you will also loving there, especially if you have children. The walking paths are great, especially during daylight savings. I do miss it alot. I look forward to following your build. I have also started a blog if you want to drop past.
    Good Luck - Kylie
