2016, like all years before it, has flown by in the blink of an eye. Where does the time go? By some illusion, the year has gone by faster than any ever has before. We saw 365 days full of scandals and milestones, of politics and pop culture. We said goodbye to icons who have changed Australia and the world a better place, and we said hello to a new generation of cute little babies who will surely blaze new and exciting trails in years to come.
December is always an interesting time for the Australian Heritage Homes team. We have a lot of reflection to do on the year that’s passed, and we have a lot of planning to do, for the year ahead. There are so many lessons learned. With each and every property, our team members learn something new. Whether it has to do with the terrain of the property, the style of the architecture or the inclusions that we’re hunting down, we always emerge from a project stronger and more knowledgeable for the next project planned.
We are so fortunate for the past year. We are blessed to work with the valued community of customers that we do. You are so inspirational to us, partnering with our teammates on bringing your creative visons to life. There’s never been a boring day, when working on the Australian Heritage Homes team. We are fortunate that we’ve been able to push ourselves personally and professionally. We’re fortunate that our business has continued to grow, and looks like it’s not stopping any time soon. We’re fortunate that our customers have provided open, and positive feedback, consistently. We depend on feedback- both positive and negative. When feedback is positive, you share your experiences with your friends and family. When feedback is negative, or rather- constructive, we learn from it and become even better builders. Bottom line, thank you, thank you, thank you!
While we’ll be sad to see 2016 go, we’re so incredibly excited for what the next year has to offer us. We’re going to learn even more- through multiple mediums, be it events, print, and leaders in the industry. We’re going to explore innovations in architecture and interior design, and we promise that we’ll share them all, right here on the Australian Heritage Homes blog. We’re going to practice new techniques, improve processes and explore new materials. We’re going to keep sustainability in mind, doing the right thing for our customers, as well as for planet earth. We’re going to keep listening, creating that permanent feedback loop with our customers, so that you’re happy and we’re happy.
We hope that the next couple of weeks allow you rest and relaxation with those closest to you. Whether you’re home on the couch, or exploring the world around you, we hope that your year was one for the books. Pour a glass of the holiday punch, enjoy the sun, we look forward to seeing you in 2017.
Thank you, from the Australian Heritage Homes team.
