One Year On

One Year On

It's funny how during a holiday you begin to think a little clearer. Around this time last year we were amidst a really relaxing and thought provoking holiday in Bali, Indonesia. You know, the type of holiday where you sense a subtle change within yourself and you know that you will never quite be the same again. As the holiday drew nearer to its end, we dreaded the idea of returning to our normal routine lives. It was at that time that we considered what a change of pace might look like for us, and just what it would take to facilitate. We excitedly came up with a plan and have been sticking to it pretty well these last twelve months.

Installation of Air Conditioner Inverter

Installation of Air Conditioner Inverter

One of the upsides to having very sound proof, and thermally efficient double glazed windows (thanks again Mick at Hop To It Glazing) is that 128 Murray retains heat very well. This is great for Winter and makes efficient use of energy. Unfortunately we have had a few abnormally warm days this Summer and this has lead to some of our guest having to open the windows to allow the afternoon breeze in. Unfortunately for us the warmer weather has also brought out, how shall we say it, a more festive spirit in some, and on a few occassions Murray Street has actually sounded like the bustling street that it is. Normally this isn't a problem, but with the windows opened to allow the breeze in, unfortunately the sounds has travelled in also.
