Ty and Anne purchased the block of land The Shak currently sits on in 2011, as they loved Kalbarri and knew they wanted to spend a lot of time here. Between 2012-2017, they worked on building the residence as owner builders and the majority of the work was undertaken by Ty.
He would often travel from Perth after work on a Friday to work on the house over the weekend, and then return to Perth to work during the week. It certainly was a labor of love.
The couple has six children and spend several months of the year in Kalbarri since, it is such a fantastic environment for their children. The house has everything a family or several families need for the perfect getaway.
