Unless it's in the glass like ours is.

Starting our KDR journey Metricon Glendale 50

We had things seen to before our 90 days was up. Aircon (twice), power points, front door lock and our hot water service.
We've also got some rubber stuff on our…

Usually if your neighbour has a building permit (rather than occupancy) then you'd require obscured windows. Depends on the council though.

Don't be worried; Its a matter of taking the face plate off, unscrewing the old fitting, screwing in the new one and clipping the new face plate on. Given the…

What was the reason for changing your locks?

G.J Gardner build - Week 20 - Fitoff

We managed to bust our garage door a mere 3 weeks after we moved in, so I feel your pain.

It was pretty quick. They don't replace the exhausts as they're different shapes. Only one power point resulted in some paint being removed, just added it to the defect list.

We only did the bedroom and lounge so we were ok to spend a bit more.

Yes, through Into Blinds. I was going to diy but those windows are huge.

Oh I mean there's no permit for next door yet. Still a vacant block, so we could have had that window changed.

Our council says you only have to obscure if the building permit for the adjacent block is already approved. None for our neighbour as yet but I couldn't be bothered…

Weird though that the data point in the lounge is the standard/included one, and we added the study one as an extra. It works fine the way it is, but…

Husband did a rough layout of pavers last night. They need to be levelled and aligned, then we will fill around them with river stones.

They seem to default to the strictest option.
Our supervisor said we should have asked for film rather than obscured glass so we could remove it later :lol:

M had all our upstairs windows as obscured (except the front); I pulled up the legislation and got the ones overlooking our own backyard removed. The two side ones are…

My husband worked his butt off today. My assistance has been rather minimal due to circumstances. He's done a great job.

Side path filled and levelled. Front dressed with soil, tree framed up and turf laid.
