Concrete Apron Around House - How Much?

Yes. I need 48m2. How much per metre square?
And I believe it should be part of the building standards, on soil such as mine, as well.

We built last year and have been living in our new home for about 10 months. Due to poor soil grade, it was suggested to us that we should…

Nevermind impish - nothing you can do for a little while, so sit back and try to enjoy the holidays.
Update from me: we took the dogs for a long walk…

Fantastic news! :)
Yes, they will all hear from me. Hope they have a good rest over the holidays. They'll need it.

I wondered the same trambay. And I choose to believe that's the case, until January 5th.

Yes Pearz - they're the company that did the original pour, almost exactly 6 months ago.

Well I have some news... You might remember that I had water pooling towards the house, on the alfresco, instead of drainking away from the house. Anyway, someone from…

Impish! You poor thing! 90% has gotta hurt, paying rent at the same time. I'd be contacting David Principessa if I were you! 9674 4580
How did this happen?

January 13th is a good luck day! Enjoy it!
And yes - it's what we want. I notice when I go into Bunnings for things, I tend to make long-term (read:…

WOOHOO!!! I knew you'd be in by Xmas! Bless your cotton socks, you're about to go broke! LOL

Contact your council and let them know that you need your neighbours' names to be able to send them fencing quotes, so it's organised stat! They will give you…

I know I keep telling you this, but you are so bloody close. I seem to remember 3 days? You'll be in by Xmas.

We got a landscaping package (for about $3000) - which covered the front landscaping, grass, plants, mulch / pebbles, watering timer system, mailbox. We didn't get a clothes line,…

Back when we did it, we were one of the last to pick your own colours instead of having a scheme. Our roof is charcoal, we upgraded our bricks…

We're thrilled with the house! Little things happen, but in the grand scheme of things, nothing is worse than renting - it's demoralising and makes you feel worthless.
Our house…

Welcome Mrs Silver Beetle - Good luck with it all and enjoy the process. It really goes so fast that sometimes you get ahead of yourself, sweating the small…

Good morning everyone,
Well - the engineer has been out today. He's looked at the levels and agrees that it's not tipping towards the drain. He'll be contacting the…

You're very close, Box27! It's hard to tell how close you are, because I think mine went in a different order - must be because each foreman does it differently.…

It's all good. I have more space than I anticipated in most rooms. The garage fills up quickly though! But I suppose everyone's does. The only…

Good for you Box 27! You are extremely close now. And yes, that Coles Voucher will come in handy. You're about to enter the Money Pit Zone!…

Hi everyone, Sorry for being MIA for so long...
My fence is fixed, but I'm not happy with the quality of the workmanship. Considering how long it took to…

Pooks and Ruby - I think you may have used the same fencer. Have you had any troubles? Not happy Jan.
First off, he just did a questionable job…

Congrats Solly! Hope everything goes smoothly for you.

Agreed 100% Box. I think they specialise in FINANCING first home buyers. It was all a bit blasé for us too.

Two questions:
1) Has anybody who's in had electrical problems? When we did our New Home Inspection, a few globes were burnt out. We figured it's because they use cheap ones.…

We'll get there but I'll be honest - it's been very very difficult. I just got phone / internet last night. Foxtel on Friday. That's nearly 3 weeks without anything,…

Hi Drekko - They don't "only deal" with first home buyers, but because of their connection with Resolve, sometimes the financing is more forgiving. I chose them because I…

That's good news Impish. Takes kahunas!
Apparition - Maybe it will look a bit better when it dries? Don't despair - the PowerPoint can be moved. It just gets overwhelming…
