Living a ?dream

MICHAEL Conaghan is living the great Australian dream ? he's bought his own home.

The youth counsellor, 30, has been the proud owner of a twobedroom Wandal Heights home for the past two months.

Michael said while it feels great to own his home, it was also daunting to think about how much work he had ahead.

"At first glance you think the house has so much potential. "Then you realise so much needs to be done,'' he said.

Mr Conaghan plans to spend about three years doing up the home, including replacing the roof, restumping, upgrading the fence, adding a barbecue area and maybe a pool.
