They’re On Again! Pie in the Sky! Part 2

正规体育买球平台推荐

The official Pie in the Sky, 新2皇冠入口官方app下载 All Stars video coverage from 2011. Here’s what they had to say! It’s become an annual pilgrimage from the city to the sticks. A treasure trove of Rugby League talent winging their way to the remote western Riverina town. Gotta hope that the Hay side don’t take it too serious. The likes of Meninga, Bradley Clarke, Matt Geyer and Simon Woolford. They’ve played on the biggest stages and they’ve given back to the game at the grassroots. A club that was struggling a decade ago is now thriving with a full complement of boys’ and girls’ junior teams and for the first time a top division senior team. it’s like getting the Australian test team to play a one dayer game of cricket! It’s a combination the five years hard work and I’m expecting big crowds. The unsung heroes are many of the Magpies. The all-stars warmed up if you can call it that. Their first and last pre-match training session. Bit worried about my team. Preparation hasn’t been great. Meet Rugby League immortal, Arty Beatson, official coach and motivator. Joking aside the great man was shocked at the fitness of some of his charges. I reckon it’s indecent with these blokes are so fit. Whatever happened to where you let yourself go like Mark Tookey? And it was Mark Tookey and Meninga who led out the galaxy of former stars But despite the big names the locals were off to a flyer, targeting an obvious weakness on Daley’s wing. That sparked a group of blokes not used to losing. Meninga was in the thick of it. Not bad for 50 odd. Kenny Nagas wound the clock back and Nagas continued to cement his Man of the Match honours. The Hay Magpies motto is, “Let’s dream big” and that dream is now a reality with 1500 fans coming from near and far to rub shoulders with some of Rugby League’s best ever. It’s good the city coming out to the bush, I’d say. We don’t get to see famous people like this very often. It’s like a field of dreams out there with all the legends. It’s great. It’s like Rugby games of old. It’s really really good It was a buzz for the All Stars; a lifetime high for the likes of Mitch Rosser who played with them. The greats showed glimpses but the match wasn’t without incident. Shane Millard suffered a dislocated elbow. Woolford went for it charging 80 metres, defying the defence and gravity. Raiders coach David Furner enjoyed the hit out; his first game in six years. He was one of the first to answer the SOS from a club in strife. In the end the visitors won 50 to 8 but the score didn’t matter. Great for everybody here and you know, happy to get a bit of money in the bush. Hay keeps on prospering from it and you know, good luck for them next year in the comp. The boys were feeling it at one stage. Nah, it’s good stuff. Great to see that the concept which started as a bit of a pie in the sky, you know, come to fruition and it’s a true story. That’s my last ever game of Rugby League. That’s it. I’m officially retired. I’m gone.

DAVID REID HOMES ALL STARS – A true great – Laurie Daley –  By Peter (Parra) Montgomery

david reid homes all stars Laurie Daley “When one of the All time greats of Rugby League puts his hands up to come out and promote the game of Rugby League, you know you have a very special occasion on your hands. Laurie Daley took about five minutes to agree to play in the David Reid All Stars game – and that was five minutes to check his diary to see if the date fitted into his busy schedule. AND what a busy schedule Lozza has on his plate. He is coach of the Indigenous team to take on the NRL Allstars team, coach of the Country Origin team, he is commentator with NRL on Fox, as well as being involved in the print media, penning columns for the Rugby League “Big League” Program….” So….

A Luxury Home – Can you Afford NOT to Build One? | 新2皇冠入口官方app下载

Why Build A Luxury Home?

新2皇冠入口官方app下载 Luxury Home There are lots of reasons that people want to build a luxury home. Some would say that it goes without even considering that everyone wants to live in a luxury home. So why don’t people do it more often? Often when people are building their first homes, they are on a fairly tight budget. This doesn’t mean that they can’t have luxury homes. The interesting thing about building a first home is that many people assume that they will have to build a project or ‘cookie-cutter’ home from one of the mass-producing builders. We’re not going to name them here but you know the ones! They are easily identified because they will give you a list of plans and layouts which look great in the booklet, but you’re quite limited to what they have and they’ll have a price against each one which may look very attractive.

All is often not what it seems…

So you go and tour their display home. You walk through and compare it with the images in the booklet and it looks far better it person! It has high ceilings, a more luxurious bathroom with superior fittings, the kitchen has a chef’s oven, granite benchtop, top-of-the-line taps and plumbing, dishwasher, fashionable exhaust fan over the stove, ducted to the outside, extra windows, beautiful tiles, carpets, air conditioning, landscaping, fencing, and luxurious light fittings. The whole nine yards. luxury home needed for sloping block Then you sit down with the salesperson and say, “I want to build this house on my block of land.” You show them the map and photographs of the block that you are so proud of and the salesperson says, “Yes of course we can build on that.” They don’t tell you that because your building site is fifty metres from the boundary or because you have a sloping block your building costs will be much higher. They don’t tell you that the fittings and accessories in the display home are top of the line… That they will cost you thousands of  dollars extra and way above the prices that are shown in the catalogue. They don’t tell you that it may be difficult to get subcontractors into your area, or that it will cost more to get them there because your block may be further out than where they normally build. That is of course unless you ask about all of these things. Many people who aren’t experienced in buying or building homes don’t know the correct questions to ask to get the full picture. You may be left with a false impression that you are going to get what appears to be a luxury home for a bargain price; that is until you are further down the track.

An expensive home is not a luxury home An expensive home is not a luxury home

Suddenly, you’re faced with a much more expensive home than you first expected and when it comes down to it you’re still getting that ‘cookie-cutter’ home that looks like thousands of others. Remember the song, “Little Boxes”? Assuming that you do get this house built, you will regularly be having people come to visit who say, “Our house is just like this! Is this the “XYZ” design from ABC builders?” And guess what? It certainly is! These same people can probably give you a list of half a dozen other people they know who have exactly the same house. So, here you are with one of the many “Little Boxes”. Just like in the song. And you know what? If you had come to 新2皇冠入口官方app下载 with the same total budget that this ‘cookie-cutter’ home cost you, you could have had a luxury home, unique to your family’s needs. Built for maximum use of the natural aspect and environment for economical and environmentally friendly passive climate control. Your 新2皇冠入口官方app下载 custom home builder would have considered the best design aspects to suit your particular needs and block and how your house will fit. Visitors will come to your 新2皇冠入口官方app下载 luxury home and say, “Wow! Your home is completely different. You’ve got fantastic views, passive solar and cross ventilation, and everything just looks and feels right. The lighting and fittings are really great quality. This home has your character written all over it! I wish I’d had 新2皇冠入口官方app下载 build my home.” So by all means, look at other builders. Check out exactly what you get for your money. And then when you’re sure what your house is really going to cost, call your local 新2皇冠入口官方app下载 luxury home builder . It may be the best building decision that you ever made.

A Prime Prestige Home on Myler’s Sloping Block | 新2皇冠入口官方app下载 New England

Building on a Sloping Block Works!

We come home and are just happy to sit down here and chill for an hour

sloping block myler family Teena was a bit reluctant at first when the real estate agent showed the Mylers a steeply sloping block in the bush just outside Inverell. But with encouragement from her husband Ron and the enthusiasm of their chosen builder 新2皇冠入口官方app下载, she has not regretted building their dream home with the wonderful views over the distant ranges. Ten minutes from town they are now living in a stylish retreat they love returning to after a busy day’s work. “We come home and are just happy to sit down here and chill for an hour. It’s a 10-minute drive so there’s time to let go of the day’s stress. Once you get here you’re right,” says Ron. Teena and Ron are well known Inverell locals. Ron previously worked as an electrician for 15 years at Wilks Electrical and Teena worked in the State Bank and then the New England Credit Union for 10 or so years. They now run the popular MacIntyre Hot Bread Shop, having bought the business in 1999 from Ron’s father who established the shop 30 years ago. The couple have built up a thriving bakery business and Teena runs the ‘smoko van’ servicing the industrial area five days a week and local sporting and other events on the weekends.   “We started in the bakery with three cooks and two staff, we now have six cooks and 15 staff altogether… so it’s growing,” says Ron. Teena’s other interest is scrapbooking. She became a consultant six years ago and sells scrapbooking products as well. “I have the space here to hold classes and workshops so all the ladies come out and use my tools.” The couple are both very busy. This is the third house they have built and the Mylers knew what they wanted, a bush block larger than two acres that you have to mow every weekend. “Eight acres is just big enough to only have a house block to look after and leave the rest scrub. In 2010 there were no houses out here and only a dirt track.” They enlisted the assistance of friends Kylie and Dan Wilks from 新2皇冠入口官方app下载, with extensive experience building on a sloping block.  

The sloping block was not a problem for 新2皇冠入口官方app下载

sloping block david reid homes “We couldn’t see how anything could be done as it was quite a steep sloping block. We did three cuts and filled where the shed is, and down here,” says Ron. “Dan was really hands on. He helped us pick the best aspect. He brought out Blakey, his architect, and we all put our heads together.” What an achievement! Walking through the front door into the open plan living area is ‘wow’. High ceilings and large sliding doors overlooking the 12-metre pool and distant ranges enhance the sense of space. The skylight above the stairwell leading to a large downstairs rumpus room and Teena’s office and scrapbooking workroom adds even more light. The house is functional and practical and very down to earth. Teena wanted the interior to be fairly simple. White walls work well with the rock feature pillars at the entrance. She chose the green-tiled splashback in the kitchen and a big slab of Caesarstone for the bench tops. The open plan interior with large 10-metre wide sliding glass doors opening onto the balcony feels like living outdoors. sloping block david reid homes “The floor to ceiling doors are open nine months of the year,” says Ron. “We have lots of barbeques with friends and family and really enjoy sharing the relaxing views.” The earthiness of the interior is enhanced by the polished concrete floors on both levels. Teena loves how versatile and easily cleaned they are. “It’s different, it has quite an industrial feel to it. We wanted the really shiny gloss. We wanted the wow factor,” says Teena. “There’s enough space for our boys to just move the table to play handball or cricket inside.” The concrete flooring means the house is surprisingly warm during winter. “It could be five degrees outside in the middle of winter but if the sun’s shining we don’t need the gas heater till the sun goes down. If it’s overcast we turn the heater on,” comments Ron. “In summer the house is cooled by ceiling to floor louvres everywhere to enhance air flow.” Outside the rock pillars supporting the two-storey structure are an arresting feature. Teena stumbled across the ‘rocks’ on a Melbourne website. They are hand-made out of concrete about two inches thick and put together like a jigsaw puzzle, glued on to the brick wall behind them. “The rocks are called ‘Mt Hotham’. We had no idea why till we were skiing at Mount Hotham and that’s what the rocks look like there!” laughs Teena. “We deliberately put the garage on the first floor level and there’s no steps at the front door, so everything is accessible. As we get older it makes sense,” says Ron. This is using the sloping block to its best advantage. The Myler’s home was completed in 2010 and the garden is an ongoing process. They mulched and planted out the bank in front of the pool. “We just wanted something that was green and easy care.

It’s a whole new world up here, like floating. It’s a beautiful spot.”

Every morning we wake up and there’ll be kangaroos here. The dogs don’t worry about them now. We’ve kept the bush aspect,” says Teena. “Because the house is so high you are a part of the view, a part of the landscape. It’s a whole new world up here, like floating. It’s a beautiful spot.” The sloping block was not a problem after all.   Attribution: Reprinted from New England Home & Lifestyle magazine and attributes the writer Jen McMahon and photographer Mel Arnott.
