Internal floorplan re-jig - after your feedback!

Yeah, hallways are pretty much 1100 wide. The pantry and fridge cavity are also same depth - they are in a section that was originally hallway. There's also a structural…

True. And the rear of the house has elevated views and is North(ish) facing. The issue is that that rear section is a skillion roof add on, so wouldn't be…

Awesome. Thanks for going to that effort. I get what you mean about the bathroom being a squeeze - one of the factors in the back of my mind was…

Hi all,
After considering a full blown extension that we eventually deemed not viable, now considering some more minor internal reconfiguration, and after thoughts, views and opinions!
The two main things I'd…

Give me some facade ideas to improve street appeal!

Hi all,
We have an older (60's) home that we've largely updated internally over the years, but it remains a real plain Jane in terms of street appeal.
The front door is…

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…

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).
