After searching for the perfect block of land to build our new home, for what seemed like years, we finally found this gorgeous block by the beach in Secret Harbour, a suburb of Perth.
So here it is, our soon to be, new home location, 748sqm of gorgeous dirt 😂
A little about us……………..
I’m Em, a thirty something year old Product / Interior stylist, I do tend to lie about my age, so much so that I have literally confused myself with my actual ‘real’ number, so thirty something it is! I live in Perth Western Australia with my Hubby, Adam, our gorgeous 10-year-old daughter Ava & our 2 cats, Wong & Walter.
Adam is a Business Improvement Manager in the Oil & Gas industry & works mainly in the City. Ava is in Primary School & I work as a stylist. I receive regular DM’s on my Instagram page @stilettos_and_bricks asking the meaning behind my business name, Stilettos & Bricks. I am a lover of high heels shoes, in fact I only own shoes with heels, even my trainers have a wedge heel 🙈 You can imagine how utterly ridiculous I look walking around a building site, surrounded by tools, bricks & portable potties, sinking deep into the dirt in my inappropriate, high shoes! Hence, Stilettos & Bricks was born………. Stilettos & Porta Loo doesn’t have the same ring to it.
Ad’s & I have been married for 11 years & this is our first build together, we have only ever brought established homes before. So fingers crossed this build has a happy ending & isn’t a remake of the War of Roses!
I will be documenting our entire building journey right here, the good, the bad & the ugly. So buckle your seat belts folks & get ready to travel the Building Journey with us, Stilettos & Bricks Style.
Until next time, 💖 Em xxx
