Hey Kangasaris,
Our slab is about 780mm from the ground, and the reason we're on a slab rather than stumps is purely cost. We were looking at around $90k for…

We had Colorbond fences at our last house, and never again. They are a massive cobweb magnet - we had redbacks in ours, after 7 years, the panels were…

Did I send you the trades we've found really responsive on those?

We've got quite a few medium sized defects that need fixing - I'm meeting with our…
