Carpet VS Timber floorboards in bedrooms

No carpets - especially in the bedroom. Too much degassing of chemicals going on with wall-to-wall carpeting and most other carpets, unless they have no underlay and are pure wool.…

Will be over before Christmas, though, which will be nice.

I'm sharing my time between Oz and Europe at the moment. Right now, I'm in Germany.

LOL, yeah, I deleted it myself (after reporting it). I especially liked how we had so much in common after reading my profile, where I have absolutely nothing stated.

Just a thought, and I apologise that I have not been able to draw something (I don't have an app of any sort) have you considered having a single "gothic"…

Ensuite design question

A couple of things springs to mind. I personally don't like bathtubs, if space is not plentyful, so I'd personally get rid of it entirely, or at least combine them.…

Pros & Cons of Bathroom Basins

I think you should do whatever takes your fancy. I am myself partial to "exmar" or concrete for wash basins.
As for space, I think that a table top basin…

No problem, and yes, you're right. But the second one is the one used in "his eyes glazed over", or as putting glazing on a cake. The first one…

"clear" glazing is just that: It is clear. The "glazing" is what you call glass in a window/door.

Whats your Biggest hate in New building plans

Well, he did say he wanted a house to fit a triangular piece of land and wanted it to not waste any real estate.

On second read, he actually stated out-right…

Do you seriously want to live in a triangular house?

FC sheet infills above windows and sliding doors

I'm reminded of grey council buildings from the late 70s and early '80s, but that's probably a bit unfair.

With tiles, there's not as much heat to shed at night, because it doesn't radiate as much heat inwards to begin with. a good solution is insulation and plenty of…

As the other poster, colourbond reminds me of sheds and watertanks. But now and again, something with colourbond turns out great:

I don't think you should spend 5k upgrading a measly 100-110mm. You're over 2500mm which would be worth the upgrade (i.e. from 2400-2500mm) but I doubt you will feel much…

Plumbing behind fridge - affect the depth?

I don't get why anyone would be hard-plumbing anything these days, and why anyone would use copper pipes and not pex, for that matter.

Advice on these led lights please?

Yes, it depends on how well-defined the beam is. Some lights are very floody (i.e. not accurate), and others aren't. You can't say it's "50% of the light", as that…

Flames going out on Gas Log heater

Never thought there could be a thermostat there (I'm used to wood fireplaces, not gas), with that in mind, I think you're correct that it's merely that triggering.
