Ducted air conditioning duct. Is it easy to replace?

Replacing porch support beams

It’s not impossible. If you wanted to use the existing stirrups, you would have to prop up the beams, and even push them up sufficiently to raise the poles over…

Sorry, but that photo shows me nothing as it is too dark. You cannot replace just the bottom of the post (well, you could, but it’s not advisable and the…

I'd suggest that if it was common practice to reduce from 200mm to 100mm at all there would be a reducer ready available.
Anyway, what roof vents are you talking about?…

Changing old house eaves/gutters to parapet wall

Unless the roof is flat, you'd have to change the entire truss structure above the eaves.

What do the other end of the posts look like - how are they attached to the beams that are holding the roof up?

I can say categorically that is not my experience. When I tell Alexa or Siri to turn on or off or dim my Hue lights, they do in a matter…

I used hue in a new build - and yes it is expensive, but it works flawlessly, including with all three major voice assistants.

Just install Philips Hue and you will be set, inside and outside.

You could get a building inspector out to have a look, the same as you do when you buy a new home. They should be able to tell if any…

Decking framing - Timber or Steel

Pros: strength, stability, longevity and robustness.
Cons: cost (maybe).

Most lighting stores are online. Just search the Internet.

Any lighting store will sell light strips.

Island Bench - single sided waterfall?

I always thought a waterfall was the whole end. Are you deleting the wine rack too, or are you just doing a return end where the overhang will be?

what height windows and doors for a 3 meter ceiling?

Everyone always posts the floor plan. Do you have elevation schematics that will give us a better idea of what the designer is proposing?

Honeycomb Blinds for Trapezoidal Windows in Australia

Before I spend a fortune buying custom made blinds from overseas, does anyone know of any company anywhere in Australia that can make motorised honeycomb/cellular blinds ?

New plumbing into existing block walls

There certainly is using BBCode, which is similar to HTML. To quote, put [quote="username"] at the beginning of the text and "[/quote]" at the end.
You could also omit the ="username"…

There are many new and good secondhand ovens that can be obtained cheaply. I very much doubt you could fix it for less, and then you'd have to ask: "which…

Good find, and makes this a great thread for future reference. Well done. You can see why I called it a "C-tool"
