Hi readers,

Hard to believe that we’re nearly halfway through the year, and thus far what a year its been! With restrictions slowly lifting in states throughout Australia, it’s been a welcome change to the isolated lifestyle we have all been living for the last few months. It’s been wonderful to be able to open our doors and welcome family and friends to share a meal, laughter, and reconnect.

Keeping in the theme of coming together, one of our regular contributor Houselab has commenced a wonderful initiative Concept Spaces which looks at connectedness and ingenious design to inspire loving the space you live in.

We also welcome a new contributor, Nic, our friendly carpenter from May Building Solutions, who shares his tips and hints on the Australian icon of any home, the Outdoor Decking. Gathering with friends and family outside at the BBQ is an Aussie way of life that we are all looking forward to enjoying again.

We take a look at our newest product, a Digital Project Brief. We’ve been working on this over the past few months and truly believe it will be so beneficial to your next building project. We also have the final, Part III of the Contract Series from our legal contributor Andrew Throssell from Hotchkin Hanly Lawyers that provides us with an understating of contracts and obligations.

Hoping you are all enjoying reconnecting with loved ones again and finding moments to share a smile.
