Day tripping- Marysville (Shire of Murrindindi)

U-shaped entryway

Love that girder!!

Taken from the hotel driveway, looking at the front and entrance to house. (The house is U-shaped)

Backyard patio.

I'm in love with this gem! I had to be very discreet taking these photos as the house is in the Main st of Marysville. Luckily, there is a hotel next door (although unlucky for the occupant) so I walked down the hotel driveway to get a shot of the entrance and a sneaky shot of the backyard through the gate. I noticed an elderly lady enjoying the sun through the windows, so I didn't want to intrude any further. I would love to have seen the interior!!

Finally, something to look at!

The girls and I went for a walk today and I remembered to take my camera. It was a bit overcast and I was a bit timid, so the pics aren't the best. But you get the idea.

This is a gorgeous house on a huge block. It's called "Copperfields" I fell in love with this house the first time I walked past it. This area (behind where I live ) was established in the late 60's. The blocks are huge and the gardens (and sometimes the views) are breathtaking.

Another house in the high, heavily treed part of Ringwood East. This is on an unsealed road. I would assume that this was built in the 70's, but I could be wrong. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Quite a few block are being bought for the land, despite the house only being 30/40 years old. This house is quite well placed on the block. And I love the pink door!

A couple of 60's weatherboards on the high side of the road. I really like this style of house, particularly when it overlooks the ocean!

Photos to come......soon.

So I was all fired up when I started this blog. Only problem is, every time I have a spare moment to go out and photograph some houses, the clouds roll in and the rain falls. So as a tempter, here's some of my collection of vintage yard furniture.

I know I know!
As if I don't have enough things on my plate already. What would possess me to start another blog?

I have walked/rode/driven past so many interesting houses in my area and felt the urge to document them somehow. I've seen lots of Flickr sites with modern homes from all over the world, but few from Australia.
I hope to carry my camera with me at all times and take some photos of houses that I find inspiring, interesting and sometimes unusual. They will range from the 1950's through to the present day. There will be a fair bit of guess work involved in regards to the exact build date unless the current owners know and are willing to tell me a little bit of history on the house.

Stay tuned and we'll see how this blog unfolds.

I would love contributions from others in the area. Email me at stuffability(at)gmail(dot)com.
