The three changes we made to our home that helped us save thousands
It was in 2017, and not long after we had our second baby, that I started to think about moving house – even though we all loved our three-bedroom house in New Lambton, NSW, as it had plenty of heritage features and was in an elevated position close to the local school, shops and cafes.
We purchased it in 2014 and had completed a big renovation a year later that included the addition of a large backyard deck to maximise the great view, and a new kitchen and family bathroom. Even after completing all this work, however, there were still a few layout issues I hadn’t noticed until baby Leo came along.
I came to the conclusion that we had outgrown our home and these were the three main things I wanted from a new house.
