Sophie and Tim Kurylowicz moved into a blue house in North Wagga Wagga earlier this year.
The pair had always wanted to move to the country and had spent the last year planning their relocation from Sydney.
Five weeks after they moved in March 2012, their house was inundated with water after Wagga Wagga experienced major flooding.
The couple are currently waiting for work to begin on their home and have concentrated their energy into developing their garden while they're unable to return home.
They're looking forward to returning home and building their lives in North Wagga Wagga.
