My plan... would you change anything?

What colour would you make these stripes?

Both lots of timbers are painted grey. I just think that they clash terribly with the timber look of the garage door.

Typical clueless guy - kitchen makeover

The kitchen itself doesn't look too bad. I think changing the floor tiles and covering up the brick wall would make a huge difference.

Thanks for your response, Traveln.
We discovered most of the problem is the part of the duct at the top of the return air 'cupboard'. There's a truss crossing the…

Quick poll: Height of cold water tap for fridge... OK GO!

We've got the power point and water point behind the overhead cupboard. Allows you to push the fridge in further.

House is looking great.
I don't think it's a good idea using your vacuum on unsealed concrete. It could suck up the dust and blow the motor.

Help - Ideas around Laundry and Theatre room

Why don't you wall off the rumpus room instead & have that as the theatre & open up the rest of the room?

How to fix this? Somebody please help/share thoughts

Can the same effect be achieved by pouring the coloured water in from the top of the downpipe ie through the gutter and down the downpipe?
