Mostly we didn't need to upgrade much. Tiles is probably the area that it is easy to spend more, however you do get a better range than alpha and…

Very happy so far, obviously too early to comment on reliability but they work very well, best appliances I've had. Previously the best I have used were Miele and…

Replacing cabinet doors with handle less

Given that you lose space inside handle less drawers, I thinking it makes sense that the inside must be different? Not sure about cupboard doors though.

Why frames overhang on slab?

The frame needs to be built to the size on the plans or everything will be out from there on. Why adjust everything when it's the slab that is…

What is this?

They are smartpans, they give them a bit of wriggle room with the positioning of the toilets etc. It's normal for them to be at slab level once poured.

Our First Home - Ballarat - Handover Friday

We were told we could bury our one of those if we wanted. I'd just lower it enough to mulch over it in a garden bed.

Metricon Winchester 28- Waiting for keys....

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…

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…

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…
