Huh? I've seen many a house garage built to the boundary. It is less than 3.6m heigh. I'd have thought that is within rescode, so no reasons to object.
Have you…

We walled it in and made it our cinema room, as the 'normal' cinema room was converted to a guest suite.

Hi a bit of an update from us, as it's been quite a while!
After moving in on Cup Day, fighting with Telstra to get a phone line put in, the…

Sorry for the late reply.
They have worked a treat. Yes, we've gone with rugs in the necessary places.
One of the scariest things, is to actually see how much dust etc…

They are all the same colours as used in the Waldorf 48 at Berwick Waters.
The WoS will have the build details, but if they can not find them for you,…

:) I was wondering when someone (other than me!) would post something!
We just had our 90 day inspection. A few things have been broken since day…

Personally, I would love to do some statistical analysis on builds times, especially comparing Brick and Hebel build times.
Our was Hebel.

And to top it off, the oven now does not work. Time for another call to PD's Home Care services...

It's the 900 free standing cooker.
I don't have a rangehood yet (tomorrow! ??) so I can not even tell you how the gas top works.
One thing I will say, compared…

Really unhappy with the Blanco 900mm wide oven.
My fault, I made a wrong assumption.
The oven space, though the width of a 900 is NOT the depth that I'd have expected…

It's a wood door right?
Given the changes in humidity over the last few days, I would not be surprised if doors bowed a bit; they did in my 10 YO…

It's a BIG assumption that they are second hand, did anyone consider a large bulk purchase that is still being run down?

Had the garage door issue resolved today. The wrong springs were installed; they needed a different set for their 5.7m wide door; not the usual stuff.

Had some dramas with the crossover. One of the tradies called it quits mid way through the pour. The man down in terms of man power when you're fighting concrete…

As it goes down, about 10-30cm from the bottom it thinks it's hit something and fully opens.
I attempted to reprogram the travel limits, but it really does not want to…

Garage door issues. And new home care is 9-5 mon-fri, and nothing ever goes wrong on the weekend does it?

We spent our first night in the new house last night.
A very busy day. Two drips with a 10ton truck, and one very full garage!
Exciting times indeed!

There is a link to the manufacturer on one of my recent pages.

Nor will they fit good you supply either.
It's one of the things you have to live with if you choose a volume builder.

The World of Style will have the design book that details everything about the build. That is how we got the colours of the Hamptons Waldorf at Berwick Waters.

So PD are using Plum Heating and Cooling now? Gawd I wish we could have used them...
