We had been looking for a site to call home for well over 12 months and had a few possibles, but were thwarted each time.

Recently Coates Hire sold us a relocatable site shed as reported in 'The Advertiser' of Monday 7th October 2013. I was on holiday at the time but I believe the sum of $0.01 was invoiced to us.
