In November of last year Terry and Jutta Flynn sadly lost their home to the Carrai East Bushfire when the intense blaze bore down on the village of Willawarrin.
Terry and Jutta were lucky to escape the blaze with their lives, having only a few minutes to pack some belongings and leave their property.
"We grabbed what we could, Jutta was in her car and she had important papers and I grabbed the dog, we sadly lost one of our dogs that ran back into the house. It was all so fast, the fire was just suddenly here," Terry told the Argus at the time.
Six months on from the devastating bushfire that destroyed over 50 homes, Terry and Jutta remain positive and said they are slowly putting the pieces back together.
"We're tracking well and are staying positive, we're just trying to get on with life," Jutta said.
Terry and Jutta rented a house in Willawarrin following the loss of their home on Kyuna Track before making the decision to buy a home in Greenhill.
"We have kept the land out at Willawarrin and have put a caravan out there so that we will be able to stay there on weekends," Jutta told the Argus.
The clean-up and removal of debris on their property was completed only a few weeks ago.
"The process is a long one and it would have been a long time to be staying in a caravan surrounded by debris, that's why we made the decision to relocate to town.
"It was a hard decision because we liked living out there, but we would have had to consider moving to town within the next 10 years anyway and this just seemed like the right time to do it," Jutta said.
As well as the clean-up work on their property at Willawarrin, Terry and Jutta have also been renovating their new home in town.
"We've kept ourselves very busy, it has been good to have a project which has helped us with the mental health aspect.
"As well as renovating our new home, we are looking at putting toilet amenities out on our property so we can stay there on weekends.
"There's constant work to be done out there, we'll just keep working through it," Jutta said.
Having recently visited their property, Jutta said the trees and rolling landscape are still recovering.
"There's still a lot of damage out there, but the trees are starting to come back. It's going to take time."
For now, Terry and Jutta are continuing to work on their property and new home and said they have been supporting each other through the past six months.
"It's surreal that it's been six months since the bushfire. We have moved on now and will continue working on our two properties," Jutta said.
"We talk things through together and support each other. It's a slow process to rebuild and recover from what happened, but the community will get there."
