The old house

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Structure

This is what remains of the first house I built on my property. It was built as a temporary structure until I was able to build a proper house.
The structure is poles (from trees cut down on the property) in the ground with fence palings as the outside walls and a corrugated iron roof.

The only part left standing is theΒ laundry and bathroom. This is the only part of the old house that has a concrete floor and is now home to Old Smoky, the farm ute.

The windows were second hand as was the roof

I dismantled most of the structure to use in the new house. Some bits had to stay as they held up the roof

It was raining when I decided to take the photos. Maybe one day I might do another post about the old house.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing Brian. Do hope you do another post on it one day as would love to know how old it is, how long you lived here for and where would you during the time when you dismantled it to build your new home!

    1. It was easier to build that way as the timber was easy to get and also a lot cheaper than a caravan. The first “building” we stayed in was a small aluminum garden shed while building the next one.
