Christmas 2019

Mark Bryson - Friday, December 20, 2019

Christmas is a time of year for reflection for the ones that didn’t make it and for the ones that did.

We lost our father this year and this will be our first Christmas without him. I remember dad once said death it’s so permanent and how right he was, make sure you tell your family and friends what you think of them often because once they pass you can say no more.

On a happier note the whole team here at Berstan Homes would like to take this opportunity to wish all our clients, trade partners, contractors and their families a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous safe New Year.

Home security

Mark Bryson - Monday, April 30, 2018

Yes another home invasion spree in Melbourne, so what can you legally do about it?  The best deterrent against these cowardly thugs is a dog and I don’t have a Chihuahua in mind, a medium size dog with a good bark is the perfect ticket. These pathetic pieces of filth only pick on the easy targets so if you make it potentially dangerous for them they will leave you alone.

How to save money on a new home build

Mark Bryson - Tuesday, July 11, 2017

House prices in Melbourne seem to be heading only one way – and that’s up. The average median house price in the city has hit $800,000 and still rising. Rather than buy an existing house, many prospective homeowners are considering building a new home in an outer suburb or buying a rundown house, knocking it down and building new on the land.

Mark Bryson - Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Owner builder gone so wrong!
Berstan Homes are currently in the middle of a knock down rebuild in Pascoe Vale and the build is at lock up stage. Next door to the Berstan home is a neighbour who is doing an owner builder project that involves the construction of a basement on the boundary of our construction. From the pictures you can see what has gone so wrong and as time marches on will get progressively worse and is extremely dangerous.

Steamfest in Scoresby for new home builders

Mark Bryson - Wednesday, March 08, 2017

Those who are fascinated by the age of steam can indulge this weekend at Steamfest in Scoresby. There are displays of industrial steam and diesel engines, blacksmithing, hay baling, earth moving machinery, model displays, vintage radio, fire engines, vintage vehicles and a tank. There is even a walking dragline that doesn’t use wheels, but “walks” on two giant feet.

There is a miniature railway or a tractor to see around the displays, at the National Steam Centre in Ferntree Gully Road. Thomas and his friends will be on the model railway to delight the kids. Refreshments are available.

Sunday soul at the Carlton Baths

Mark Bryson - Friday, March 03, 2017

Do some lazy laps at Carlton Baths this Sunday to the sound of laid-back soul and blues music.

The Teskey Brothers are a group formed on the banks of the Yarra River, in the small town of Warrandyte. The band consists of brothers Sam and Josh Taskey and also features Brendon Love on bass and Liam Gough on drums.

Their music is relaxed, fun and nostalgic and is the perfect backdrop for your Sunday afternoon swim or gym work-out at the historic baths in Rathdowne St, Carlton.

There is no cover charge, the music is included in the standard pool entry.

The Tesky Brothers are playing between 1pm-3pm this Sunday, March 5.
