Rangehood ducts and vents

What you should have is something like this:

The rangehood ducting should be attached.
You should also have those for the bathroom exhaust fans.

The OP's original plans are quite a bit smaller in size at 213 & 216m²
There may be a reason they are opting for a smaller footprint but you can…

The aspire kitchen and in fact the whole living area will be sooo dark.
Which way is north?

The aspire has all those bedrooms opening onto public zones. Bed 4 is in a shocker and bed 2 you still walk through the entry and passage to access the…

Yep that's a "stink pipe" or sewerage vent pipe.
The rangehood vent will be a large 100mm roof cowl.
The problem is more likely to be the actual rangehood.
Unfortunately to get adequate…

Help! Split system letting in bushfire smoke

Hi Ren
You will find that RC air cons are closed systems ie that don't take air from outside just recirculate the air inside the house while passing it through an…

Help, can I get rid of this ?

I'd say it's a plumbing IO. It's capped so it's not a relief gully and they are typically next to the house anyway.
You shouldn't really cover these over. They are…

Full declaration before I post. I do work for this concreter. I do all his formwork for his decorative concrete (steps, pool edges, walls etc)

Hi Lucy
Are you after exposed aggregate?

Hi sunny
It's good that you've had some movement on your issue.
Can I ask who it was that ended up getting the insurers in?
Was it the architect or builder?
Are they going…

Hi Sunny
The only thing I don't understand about that is that the carpenters that framed up the house would have used the floor plan for all dimensions. I'm assuming that…

Absolutely. It will have to have some decent support built through it. I'd be opting for a steel ladder frame then box it out with a whatever you want.

Noosa is one of my favourite places. Might take you up some day.😀
Good luck with it all.

It all comes back to the walls of the butler's pantry.
They are built in the wrong place and it's all flowed from there.
I'm a carpenter who also has a cabinet…

My next question is, who built the wall that the cabinetry sits against? I…

Sunny. Do you have an answer to my question.

You are correct. It's just the fins on the sliding door that get trimmed.
Ultimately you should not be able to see the edges of the tile. For the OP the…
