Compressive Strength required by AS/NZS 4456

Sadly while they ‘support’ permeable pavers for the environmental credentials, they have not yet found any that meet the compressive strength required by the standard.
So, in theory, 55 MPa…

I am looking to build a driveway out of grass pavers.

Entry door without the electronic lock look.

Also have you looked at the august home lock - nothing on the front of the door and discreet lock on back of door. The other option is Level Bolt.

No, we're in Perth.

Mine did!
I'm building with Residential Attitudes and they have built me a lift well. I intend to use Resilift (not the best looking lift but it will do...).

I saw this colour brick recently, matched with jarrah and it looked lovely. So perhaps jarrah garage door and jarrah door? I’d probably match the render to the…

On second read, another alternative is that you are providing the item but you expect the builder to install it for no additional cost? If so, then in my…

Interesting. So if I can just clarify, you will provide the item and basically pay whatever the builder tells you it will cost to install and the builder is…

Precisely. I suspect your neighbour was trying to be civil by asking you to chop down the tree, but when you refused (from his point of view) got frustrated and…

A zero lot boundary wall owner is responsible for maintaining their wall. Your post indicates that the tree is growing on his/her wall (you said 'against').
