Creating A Fun, Safe Garden For Your Children

As the mum of five young children, I know how important it is to have access to a safe outdoor space for your children to play. Being cooped up in the house all day isn't good for the kids or the parents, but you also can't let young kids play in a space that's hazardous. When we bought our new family home, there was a lot of work to do in the garden to make it childproof, and we also wanted to make it a fun place for the kids to play. We erected a new fence, fitted a combination lock on the garden gate, had poisonous plants removed, cordoned off the pool and created a play area complete with swings, a slide and outdoor games. I started this blog to share my DIY gardening tips, and I hope you find it interesting and useful.

How to Choose the Right Relocatable Home

by Darlene Jenkins

Do you require an extra living area that has all the amenities and privacy for a friend or loved one? Perhaps you are looking to add another rental property on your plot of land. If this is the case there are some affordable avenues to go down. Everywhere you turn people are coming up with fresh ideas to create and produce both eco-friendly and relocatable homes. If you are looking for one such home there are many companies that provide affordable options for you to choose from.

When looking for such accommodations it is important first to check with your council to receive permission and any regulations that need to be adhered to. Choosing not to do so can be a costly mistake. When the appropriate permission has been granted, it is time to start looking.

As with any other undertaking, it is important to gather as much information as you can. Get a number of quotes from around your region for new homes while considering interstate possibilities. Do your homework on any builders or companies that you choose to run with and make sure they are correctly licensed. Another area to keep an eye on is house listings or community notice boards. It may be possible to find a second-hand relocatable home that is cost effective and in your area. 

If your relocatable home is going to be a rental property, you will need to furnish the kitchen and possibly the bathroom. Look online and at community listings to find second-hand or affordable items such as ovens and dishwashers. It does not have to cost a fortune to fit out your new home.

There are many companies within Australia that provide steel-frame relocatable homes, granny flats or even beach houses. These houses can come with multiple bedrooms and provide ample living space for you and your family. Many companies provide a myriad of homes to choose from, ranging from single storey to multiple storey homes.

Another option is to find yourself a DIY kit home. If you enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that you put your hard work and persistence into a project, this may be the option for you. Kit homes can be designed by you or picked from existing options, delivered to your block and all the information given for you to build it yourself.

The technology used to design and create these beautiful homes has given people the option of assisting on their own build and providing their family with a home they will cherish forever. With many styles, colours and sizes you are sure to find just what you are looking for. For more information, talk to local companies such as Overland Transportable Homes.
