Help! Carport position for best street appeal?

Yeah, good call. That's a thought I'd had and would go with in an ideal scenario. Timber frame, double width, tied into the house etc.
Unfortunately the budget is essentially zero,…

Hi all,
After your opinions.
I am renovating a humble weatherboard house that, unfortunately, has limited options for car accommodation - no rear yard access to allow garage etc. The house…

Advice/feedback/ideas sought on floor plan layout tweaks!

The original plans didn't extend to show what's beyond the main house roof line, but there is actually a large, elevated deck (approx. 4.9m x 4.9m) at the rear (northern)…

Moving the kitchen is definitely a thought. Just not sure if it would end up feeling a bit small and isolated. It would need to be opened up a lot…

Hi,
I'm in that common scenario of owning a nice house in a location we like, but being an older home that's had some additions over time, it has some little…

Attach timber frame between concrete stumps - best method?

Having now removed most of the existing timber/cladding that was attached, I've found that most stumps (those that I've checked closely enough) actually have one or two holes pre-drilled through…

Fixing an impractical extension???

No way you can sketch and add a simple "mud map"?
Otherwise, have you asked the opinion of your real estate agent? I'm sure they'd be in the best position…

Hi all,
Our house is on a moderately sloping block, falling away from front to back. The house is set off the ground on concrete stumps, with clearance of around…

Thanks CEK. I'll follow up on this avenue... I assume, considering this is simply a pitfall of the product (i.e. no warranty of any sort to apply here), that…

I see your point guys, and maybe it's still a bit too raw for me to forming making rational views on the product, but the laminate tops this stone replaced…

Here's something I wish someone had told me before forking out for Essa Stone bench tops. They are relatively fragile, and seem quite succeptible to chips. In fact,…

Help! Laminate benchtops, square edge vs squareform vs penci

Right, so looking at supplier B who has quoted on squareform/tightform (3mm radius). Cheaper than the initial quote, which I'm still not 100% sure, but I think was quoting…

When you say ABS edging, you're referring to this being used on ALL edges, aren't you (option 3, per Chippy's original reply).
I've asked for confirmation of what I'm being quoted…

I might have to press the supplier for some more clarification, but I was thinking that even the longer edges won't come edged, but perhaps I've misunderstood him.
