Hello world!

Welcome to 17 Coronation. We’re going to track the buildling of our new home in Binningup, Western Australia – a town 150km south of Perth. We will be living 300m from the shores of the Indian Ocean!

History

In mid 1961, Alek’s parents bought the block for 100 Pounds. They immediately had a small house built and by Christmas of that year we had our first holiday there. There were just 16 other houses in the township. The roads were gravel and there was no electricity.

The house had sevaral facelifts, inside and out over the next 53 years.

The original house - Dec 1961
