I agree with Benjo - do your research before starting. This thread is a good example - things to look out for in North Kellyville: Rain gardens, water tank size,…

Indeed, I am familiar with velocity, but you are in a pure NBNco area, so you should fall under the vanilla wholesale->retail structure. Only other option is to find an…

I would imagine you need an antenna for FTA TV. The rebroadcast tech for developers is probably not worth it in that scale at all.

The concreter was all over it. And it was the cheapest option! moving it was going to be thousands.

My in-laws just got a driveable lid put on the pit. Seems to work out ok. They even got it in the same colour as the rest of the driveway.…

Whats the problem with a light coloured roof - eg surfmist?

Ahh that's a shame Nina. Our house is high on our block so you can't really see the roof except from a distance. I agree that would make a difference.

Just to bump this thread... Out surfmist roof works great.. I have just moved in and today was 29 degrees in Sydney and inside our house was a nice 19c…

Barry road will get NBN soon enough.
EDIT: Barry Rd is covered by Telstra's tophat FTTN programme, which means they get cabinet and can get faster sync speeds than us.…

getting a backhaul from the exchange on barry road to our little area off hezlett seems more likely than getting KVST upgraded. Where exactly are you building again onggie?

heaps of info here:
