Let's talk reticulation:

Now that I'm putting up some more pics I may as well put up my very basic back yard drawings that I've come up with. The total area of our…

As easy as other glass only that it needs power to it. It's about about $1000 m2 installed. Yes. Ouch.
I haven't seen your place for a long while. Going to…

Hey there mrsjm. Yes it's switchglass. The window was a bit of a design flaw on my part as it didn't give us much privacy from the neighbours but solved…

Original internal doors were in crappy condition and all had warped so they were replaced with solid timber doors. Shame to paint them really. The Art Deco door hardware is…

Painting of the original rooms halfway complete. I'm really happy the colour we chose for the walls (dulux white exchange half)
