Jacinta and Michael, successful business owners in Melbourne, had long dreamt of building their own Maharishi Vastu home.
They found a spacious double block just across the street from the beach, with a nature reserve behind, in a secluded street outside Cairns.
The generous block and tropical climate allowed them to design a spacious and airy two storey home.
It became a wonderful project for the whole family, with Jacinta's nephew Matt Orr of Design Orr Build being the builder.
Here are some photos of the building process, starting with the foundation stone laying ceremony.
