Close window with 3D wall

Fair enough. See what the council says.

I understand about having big floor to ceiling windows, but I think it adds to modern living. However, not everyone has the same taste as me.

While I think you will have no problem with that change, it is best to make telephone contact with the development department in your local council to get the best…

SINK & COOKTOP ON SAME BENCH

We have an induction cooktop. Previously always had gas. Wouldn’t go back if you paid me (well, except for the gas wok hob we continue with).

I'm guessing the edge 300mm from the cooktop with the wall unit will have a vertical wall, in which case, because it is so close, can you extend the splash…

Have you mapped it out on a piece of paper to get an idea of what it would look like?

They probably won’t be able to take advantage if it is a project build, just with options.

The first questions is: what outcome are you trying to achieve by spending more money on some or all of your glazing?

Smart Light Switch - Recommendation?

The neutral wire requirement is something you would need to discuss with your electrician. I believe that is not required in the initial fit out of dumb switches, and unless…

Table Lamp Size

Actually, you know I am warming to the larger cream base lamp, and it look less overwhelming in those more recent pictures.

Out of those, I still like the cream one best, but the blue is a better size. Pity that size wasn’t available in cream.

Personally, I think the base is too big for the table and takes up too much space; but the shade is certainly in proportion and a smaller one would look…

It's a bit big, but looks OK to me.

70s Home Reno - first time renovators, can we do it?

Read carefully and plan thoroughly before starting, and make sure your relationship is on a strong footing. Start here:

Best resource available, and your taxes paid for it.

Having gone that route, I can recommend it...provided support is available for the things you want to control. Blinds are very light on in Australia, but lights, locks, plugs, music…

Not sure why that would be the case. Wouldn’t the roof area be similar to the ground area below it that was there before the house was built. Moreover, I…

Crumbling brick wall

I don’t have a product to recommend, but you could search the Internet for "professional grade masonry sealer" or speak to a local masonry specialist.

I think by moving the source of water you've done what you need to stop the crumbling of the bricks (once the moisture level drops), but if you want to…

Now that I've seen them, I would double my recommendation. We recently stitched in some replacement boards in a Canberra home, because parts had been poorly patched. Now that they…

Repairing wall & ceiling join.

Many things can be "sufficient", but if it was me I would want to fix it properly and permanently. I would get a plasterer in.

I agree, it’s probably a metal angle.
We have tiles that go to the ceiling too, but no hint that’s what our builder used at the join. You could get a…
