Metricon Winchester 28- Landscaping

Looks fantastic! We used Sir Walter and it's taken off really well, most areas it's already hard to see joins. Have fun keeping it wet the first couple…

I was scrolling through my photos today and couldn't believe just a few weeks ago all we had out the back was clay, concrete and a few pots! Grass…

The spreading, leveling and rolling is the tough bit! We moved almost 6 meters in a couple of hours with 3 wheel barrows on the go, but probably spent…

Building Delta(Bliss/ Facade) JG King Shepparton north (Gram

This is good! I think you get more attention when they have multiple builds to visit in a location. We were on our own for all of our…

Landscaping update...
We've been slogging along doing everything, excluding concreting, (we did the drainage, excavation and crushed rock base) ourselves. It's bloody hard work, especially removing a huge amount of…

Wow! You think you've seen it all on Homeone...
Good luck with your maintenance inspection. We're still waiting on a few things from ours about 5 months ago

Height of kitchen/ splashback/ wall cabinets

I'm 156cm tall, our overheads and integrated rangehood are at 158cm (would have been 160 before flooring), gap between bench and overheads is 69cm and I don't find this an…

Assuming you mean the hinges are on the vanity side, I would change the door so it is hung from the other side. A bit more work but I…

Completely agree with this. We have under bench in new house, and previously came from a rental with it at about head height (I'm short so shoulders for most…

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.

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?
