The Duckpond – a reader’s home

Posted on Fri, 11 Jan 2008 by midcenturyjo

“I’ve just discovered your blog (and spent far too much time enjoying the
images). We’ve just about finished building our mudbrick home in the Yarra Valley, Victoria, and there are a few bits and pieces that may interest you….” Cecilia.

The Duckpond is Jon & Cecilia Sharpley’s photo journal that follows the progress of the building of their special home. It’s an inspiring visit for anyone with an interest in energy efficient, alternative, or sustainable building. These are just a few photos of their hand forged balustrades, fallen gum branch bed and stick handles. Thanks Cecilia. You have a wonderful and environmentally sensitive home!

I love the railing. Oh the dragonflies and bullrushes. I’ve dreamed of a mudbrick home but I live in the middle of a city. Nice dream though.
