SINK & COOKTOP ON SAME BENCH

Arcadelt is right.
Induction is quick, clean, controllable and leaves a nice flat surface when not in use
We've had them in our last 2 houses. Would never choose gas.…

SINK & COOKTOP ON SAME BENCH

Here it is. Our kitchen is L shaped at the end and returns with an appliance cupboard, pantry and fridge space, where it sounds like yours is a straight line.

SINK & COOKTOP ON SAME BENCH

That's exactly the layout we have in our kitchen.
We've just moved in a month ago and it's working perfectly. We have the DW between the cooktop and sink.

The neater option is the top example. You flush in the Rondo control joint and then fill with polyurethane.
They've opted for the bottom example. They could have used a…

There are 2 options. The builder has chosen the simpler method.
The screen shot below is from Gyprock's installation details.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET A ROOF INSTALLED IN THE WINTER?

It very much depends what type of roof cover you currently have and what you want to go to as well as the construction type of your house.

Laminex AbsoluteMatte

On another note.
2 pac is pretty durable. It's basically as hard as automotive paint, so fairly hard to damage. Obviously the substrate is softer so if given a hard hit…

The quality will be good. It's pressed on in exactly the same way laminates are pressed on to benchtops.
Once it's stuck it's not coming off.
It will be either a single…

You can get the absolute matte laminate pressed onto board, infact it may even be available direct from Laminex. They definitely have the matching ABS edging so it can be…

Painting two pack?

Hi Loreen. How is the kitchen going? Are you still having an issue with chipping?
Where did you get your kitchen? Is it a local supplier or an imported item?

Is my potential double garage build too small?

I reckon the garage door is already close to 5.0m wide.
I'd also put a door out the back of the garage. It makes it easier to get gardening equipment and…

Installation of undermount kitchen sink

That's fair enough.
If they were supplying the sink then they would cover the lot.
They are charging you to basically upgrade the installation to undermount so will cover any issues…

Installation of undermount kitchen sink

Correct. When a sink is top mounted all the weight is carried on the lip around the outside and silicon is used just to keep it in place.
Once it's undermounted…

Technically you could but your going to struggle to remove the sink (it's epoxied in place) and it may be damaged trying to get it out to top mount it.

The cut out is the same size (roughly) for undermount or drop in.
Personally I think undermount looks good with just bowls and no drainer, it looks clean and minimal

No. The cut out for drop in is bigger than undermount and is typically a much rougher cut as you never see the edges.
You'll need to make the decision…

If you undermount a sink the stone mason does it as it's epoxied in place.
An undermount sink installation costs more than a drop in because the cut out has to…

In WA the document you are after is called the addenda.
The plans show all the sizes and details and the addenda outlines all the specifications.
