That wouldn't really help, because the point is to try and get some natural light into the living areas. Your kitchen bench will get sunlight, but that won't reach your…

Our kitchen benchtops were delayed due to issues the manufacturers were having cutting porcelain. They agreed to rectify the join in the kitchen pantry though, which is…

Yes we have 2 bathrooms on the second floor, so that's probably the reason. Our ground floor bathroom only had waterproofing around the shower area.

We didn't specifically ask for waterproofing on the whole of the bathroom floor. I wonder if they did it because of the hobless showers? We also have freestanding baths…

It's too tight for a 720 door. I've had the exact same scenario in a rental before, it's difficult to get the door shut while standing inside. I recommend making…

I love your project! It looks homely and warm, and the details you've added have so much character!

Footprints in Driveway

I think the grind back and stencil sounds like a fair option. It won't decrease the structural integrity of the concrete, and it's a better option than them offering to…

Evaporative Cooling / Gas heating vs Refrigerated cooling

I'm under the impression that the cost of heating by gas is quite high. I would recommend reverse cycle ducted air conditioning.

Sounds as though you need a custom plan drawn up.

Make sure you check the depth of the fridge as well. A lot of newer fridges are very deep so they protrude in front of your kitchen cupboards. Fisher and…

Contemplating rendering

I would suggest painting all the windows and roof trims monument. The brick suits the colour in your case, so I don't think you need render.
