After relocating from Canada to the scenic coastal town of Inverloch with his wife & family, Wade Bashaw has transitioned from skiing in Canada to Stand Up Paddle Boarding with the exact same smile of pure enjoyment and is constantly inspired by the local environment and relaxed lifestyle. He started North South Homes with his wife (super talented local photography Sue Carmody) in 2015 after noticing the need for builders to get on board building environmentally sustainable homes. They have since developed a strong philosophy around building homes that support current & future goals of reducing global energy usage.
We’re human. We all like to think we spend less time aimlessly scrolling through our phones than we actually do. So, ask yourself: What do you do on your way to work? Or on your lunch break? What do you do during the tv ads? Chances are you scroll your Facebook and Instagram feeds. And when you want to know if those ominous clouds pose a threat to your daily commute, or if your child’s sniffle is worth a trip to the doctor? You search Google. When you put it that way, it’s easy to see how we spend so much time on the internet. In fact, the average Aussie spends a staggering 6.8 hours a day on the web… and only 8 of those minutes is spent on realestate.com.au.
We had a great afternoon earlier this week, talking all things finance with local mortgage guru Lynda Sainsbury from LS Finance Broking based in Wonthaggi. If you currently have a mortgage, are thinking of getting a mortgage or refinancing, don't do anything without speaking to Lynda and her team first. She has a wealth of knowledge and is a breath of fresh air in an otherwise stuffy industry.
If you haven't discovered it yet, The Burra Brewing Co. is a microbrewery located in the beautiful rolling hills of Korumburra, the gateway to South Gippsland.

We escaped the heat this afternoon and called into Inverloch's latest pop up store Fig & Willow and caught up with the delightful owner April Morris, a lifelong Inverloch local who has been running her business online successfully for the last year and has just opened her first pop up store right next door to Gusto, possibly the best Gelato shop this side of Melbourne.
Earlier this week Inverloch 3996 caught up with Troy & Kelly Harris, the dynamic duo behind some of the most stylish additions to the new build scene in Inverloch and beyond to find out what makes them tick, and to discuss some of the coastal construction trends that are emerging for 2019 and beyond.
Mimpi.Co is one of those eclectic stores you stumble upon by accident, leave with lots of things you never knew you needed or wanted, but somehow know will make your life better. We think it's because of the love and attention that has gone into the selection of every single item on display. Stylish, beautiful, fresh and whimsical are words we would use to describe Mimpi.Co. They could also be used to describe owner Monique Sproson, whom we had the pleasure of spending a morning with earlier this week, discussing all things Mimpi & Inverloch.
