This house is located just north of the Victorian border about 30 minutes west of Albury in rural New South Wales. In the tiny town of Splitters Creek House, the site is approximately 3.6 hectares of grassed and woodland. On a very steep block the house is nestled into the hillside, in the location of the clients’ favourite picnic spot. Save this picture!© Nic GranleeseThe clients wanted a family home with overlapping spaces, where multiple activities could occur simultaneously but in connection with each other. This strategy assisted with the response to the sloping site, and generated a floor plan of four interlocking split-levels. The house responds directly to the views around the site with large expansive views from the meals and living areas and more private intimate views from the bedrooms. Save this picture!© Nic GranleeseThe lower level features a main bedroom with ensuite and a guest room with a tiny bathroom behind the timber bedhead. The layout of which is somewhat similar to a hotel room. The ensuite similar to a hotel suite. Save this picture!© Nic GranleeseThe next level up is home to the main living area. A large open plan room which comprises a kitchen, a dining space with a built in banquette seat. To the side of the banquette is a smallish area for the TV which itself opens out onto a north east facing deck and the pool beyond. A large timber platform brings these spaces together and gives the 4 children a place to play. Save this picture!© Nic GranleeseThe entry level is lined to the living and kitchen space via a timber stair with a copper balustrade. The change of level between these spaces (approx. 1.2m) is mediated by a timber and white acrylic storage compartments that are fixed to tall timber posts. This level is connected to a large internal courtyard from the kids play room. The courtyard provides a shelters outdoor dining and play area from the harsh summer sun or freezing winter winds.

Fresh apricots are available now, and as they need a warm climate to thrive, most of the apricots on sale in Britain during the summer come from European countries revelling in hot climates. They are cultivated in many areas worldwide from Asia to Australia, North Africa to the USA. Many of these are sold dried.Apricots are related to peaches, nectarines, plums and cherries and can be substituted for them in many recipes. Their colour ranges from a pale yellow to a deep orange and, when they are ripe, the kernel falls out easily when the fruit is cut in half. The flesh is fragrant and the skin is velvety soft.Dried apricots are used widely in baking, but fresh apricots lend themselves to baking as well. To check if they are ripe, feel the flesh, which should be moderately firm and free of blemishes or wrinkles.Use them in crumbles and tarts; they are very good as a substitute to pears in a Bordaloue tart or used instead of apples in a tarte Normande. Both of these traditonal dishes can be served with vanilla ice cream to bring out the taste of the fruit.Apricots will also work well in pastries and, mixed with cream, as a filling in choux buns. They don’t give off a lot of juice when they are cooked, so small amounts can be added to muffin mixtures, cakes and tray bakes.In Season: June-SeptemberBy Fiona Burrell, co-author of Leith’s Baking Bible, from the world-famous Leiths School of Food and Wine
NewsHub 11 May 2018OPINION: Psychologists here say we’re in the middle of a porn crisis.Just last year an Australian study found 100 percent of boys surveyed were exposed to porn, and 85 percent said they viewed it daily or weekly.In the US, six states are declaring pornography a public health crisis. Even The New York Times is calling on officials to ban it.But while it’s easy to tell the government they should be doing something, this is one of those issues where actually, it’s what you do that counts.I want to talk about pornography.Here’s what clinical psychologist Dr Mark Thorpe, who deals with this stuff all the time, said.“We are in the middle of a crisis. There is an extreme amount of sexual problems with young men under 25 – and that manifests as erectile dysfunction; delayed ejaculation; diminished libido with real life partners, not screen; and an avoidance of genuine relationships.”READ MORE: http://www.newshub.co.nz/home/health/2018/04/opinion-we-need-to-take-ownership-of-what-porn-s-doing-to-nz-kids.htmlKeep up with family issues in NZ.
