The Tasmanian family that made international headlines when they sheltered from a devastating bushfire under a jetty is planning to rebuild.
Both the Holmes' house and their daughter's family home on a property near Dunalley were destroyed.
The two families are now living in the accommodation known as "Potters Croft", which was the only structure left standing out of five on the property.
"We'll take the opportunity to do things a little differently but nevertheless we're excited about the possibility of what we can achieve now," he said.
"It's a clean slate almost.
"We've got one building left out of five so good opportunity to reconsider, redesign and rebuild."
Hundreds of power poles were destroyed in the fierce fires.
Power has now been restored to all homes in Tasmania's south-east, two weeks after the devastating bushfires.
The last home to be reconnected was a building on the Holmes's property.
Today there were showers as power company Aurora Energy finished reconnecting homes, two weeks ahead of schedule.
Fires throughout the state have now burnt through 130,000 hectares and destroyed more than 170 properties.
