So... 6 months! That went quick! Not much new around here, we're still agonising over back yard design, hopefully we'll get started on that soon. Porter Davis…

I never thought of Officeworks! I'll check them out.

Yes starfire glass. We didn't have a choice of whites.

I have white glass, it does look a bit blue/green, just depends if you can live with that. I'm pretty sensitive about colour and it was something I worried about…

Boundary fences - cost per metre?

$50 does sound cheap. All our quotes for only 1800mm high were around $60/m. I'd be asking if they have seen this persons work, and getting another quote…

Space Estimates

It can be done, we have butlers/kitchen/dining/family in a line with an internal space of 11.8x5.4m. I feel our width is plenty wide enough (no laundry and only a…

You don't think your bunnies will chew the trunk of the fruit trees? I think ours might, they love stripping the bark off fruit tree branches.
