Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get married 

Well maybe not married. At least in not this deconsecrated and now renovated little brick chapel in West Hobart, Tasmania. Yes I'm stalking Tasmania! The history! The cutest buildings.

Heavenly B & B

Long time readers will know that Kim and I LOVE church conversions. LOVE. I think I've found the perfect spot for a weekend getaway ... if you live in Belgium (or if you are passing through).

The Shed

A teeny tiny almost derelict shed. Some imagination and foresight. Lots of talent. One amazing small space home and an award winning Australian renovation. The Shed by Richard Peters Associates via the Houses Awards. Good things do come in small packages.
