Seeking a country life, Alicia and Ian found the perfect slice of farmland outside of Melbourne to owner-build their home.
About me Hi, I’m Alicia, and I’m a project manager for a building company. I live north of Melbourne, Vic, with my husband, Ian, our daughter Bonnie, 2, and our Labrador Ralphie. I documented our rural build on Instagram: @bonniesfarmhouse. Top tip Don’t let a price tag define your style – shop around! Look beyond a brand name to see potential in pre-loved items that may just need a little imagination and TLC.
