Here is a sneaky peak of our new project.
It’s a cute and cosy little 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in one of the new Canberra suburbs of Bonner. We have already started building and provided it all goes to plan, it should be at lock-up stage in a couple of weeks.
Here are some more pictures.
What a perfect long weekend. Four days of working outside in the fresh air and beautiful Autumn sunshine getting much needed vitamin D. We finally got to do some of the little annoying left over bits and pieces outside.
What did we achieve you ask?
Did you know Forde is considered the most advantaged suburb in Canberra?
The Australian Bureau of Statistics uses a tool called SEIFA (Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas) to determine and rank socio-economic conditions of areas around Australia, and in the ACT, Forde was ranked the most advantaged ahead of all other suburbs. Yes ahead of Forrest, Red Hill, Yarralumla and O’Mally!
First the ABS comes up with index score for each area. The index score is a data driven summary of social and economic indicator of advantaged and disadvantaged. They use the following indicators to allocate an index score:
- Level of education
- Occupation (employed as a professional)
- Level of income
- Size of house (house holds with spare bedrooms)
This score summarizes the socio-economic conditions of a geographical area. The index score is then used to rank and compare areas.
