Metricon Winchester 28- Home Straight

Over 3000 photos and I found 1 that shows it, and not very close. It definitely can be done and up above your head there really shouldn't be any concern…

I don't have access to it any more, it was on the boundary, but I'll look through my construction photos and see what I can find. It is was…

Great job on the paving edge! It's incredibly satisfying getting bits done yourself! We live at bunnings now :lol:.

We had a special condition elsewhere in the contract that then excluded things like basins from the fixing stage. Could this be the case with yours?

Checked out the Bannockburn skillion yesterday, its one of the alpha facades with nothing penetrating the skillion, so unfortunately no help. I'm not even sure what I'll do with the…

Just curious how they are handling the flashing around the pier. The display was just typical flashing like you would expect and like the lysaght flashing guide shows for a…

It's just mind boggling how they can make so many mistakes. So often people say a good supervisor makes all the difference but that doesn't help incorrect purchase orders and…

Thanks, I'll go for a drive this weekend! Hey, not important but were the Heywood master plans fixed when you first saw them? We always wondered if we…

Tarnish on metal balusters on deck

Is there timber above it? Looks a bit like the tannin bleed marks on the metal frame of our new timber gate.

Yes and no. I love contrast, our house is full of it! We borrowed many of the colours from the display, but definitely spent the most time at our colours…

Consider insulating all your internal walls. I'm not a fan of how sound transfers through the steel frame. We did some between living and bedrooms or toilets but should have…
