KDR - Rawson Chifley 42 mark ii in Newcastle.

I think they're used to mark out the build area, like how far back they'll scrape/cut/fill.
Exciting times ahead!

Retaining wall (or not)?

Here's a few photos of monument frames from inside. I've read that black frames are less obvious because they fade into the view better? Who knows if it's true!

Using finance for DIY items

We got a personal loan for retaining walls. They didn't even want to see a quote. That was CommBank.
