Opinion poll : Residential Heating and Cooling Options

OK then. You might want to consider unifying the poll based on either the energy source or delivery system. You might also get better results if you had seperate heating…

That is a very limited range of options you have in your poll.

Window and door height

The different heights in the elevations do look a bit odd.

Paint help please!!!

It looks darker in lower light. Essentially, white is a reflective colour, so reflects the light around it, unlike light absorbing colours that might do the opposite. That said, it’s…

Sorry, forgot about this. I've taken some pictures showing walls, trims and ceiling (which is ceiling/vivid white), but as predicted, you won’t readily see the contrast in pictures that is…

Urgently need a plumber

Search the yellow pages, looking in the classifieds of local papers and do an Internet search using the keywords "plumber" + your suburb or region.

We do, but I'm not sure a photo will show you anything, as whites are very dependent on the light. Anyway, we have full strength AWUSA and our trims and…

ANY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FRONT LOADER WASHER/DRYER PLEASE?

Having owned many of them, I'm a big fan of Bosch appliances. So, WVG28420AU or WVH28490AU, the latter of which is a bit more expensive but was recommended by Choice…

French door fridge recommendations?

We have a F&P, but only with ice and no water dispenser. Have been happy with it over the first 18 months of ownership.

Double glazing worth the $$ in Perth?

Seems like a bit of a circular problem. Double-glazing would be cheaper if it was ubiquitous, but because it is perceived as too expensive, people aren’t willing to install it,…

I get that, but I'm explaining why. If you work out why the pantry is 300mm shorter, then you can figure out who is responsible.

28 d28 darcadeltarcadelt posted:

640mm must apply to the oven tower then, and the cupboard down the hallway just conform because of the wall behind them. In any case, the cause of the problem…

28 d28 darcadeltarcadelt posted:

Unfortunately, that desire is not reflected in either of the drawings. The architect drawings show them as 640mm deep. Is that what they ended up being?

28 d28 darcadeltarcadelt posted:

From those drawings it looks like the wall at the end of your pantry is 300mm out, and that would account for the difference. Architect has specified equal distances between…

Only if you also engaged the architect as the project manager, as well as the designer of your home. Did you engage the architect as the project manager?

Funny, I've always been of a mind that no one looks after your interests better than...you.

I wonder if part of the cause might not be evident there in your statement?

It may the case with a project build, but it is not always the case with a custom build, especially depending on the client's relationship with the build and the…
