Camelia Suppliers

Your welcome. I think our hedge looks fantastic especially at this time of year when it's full of beautiful red flowers against glossy dark green leaves. We choose a deep…

Camelia Suppliers

We planted a hedge of red camellias in Sydney over 15 years ago and wanted to match the type of flower when we rebuilt. There were 2 nurseries that were…

Plantation shutters

I've had a few quotes for plantation shutters from blind companies in Sydney but they all seem to be made in China from basswood. Does anyone know of custom shutter…

Pet door options

We had the same dilemma. Our window manufacturer installed the doggy door into the aluminium frame of our laundry door. So we have a toughened glass laundry door (also BAL40…

Storage Furniture for Entrance/Hallway

Well I'm just a bit disappointed after waiting and waiting... Checked out the entryway furniture at the Aust PB site. What was described in the US site as a 'leather…

Storage Furniture for Entrance/Hallway

Yes, I'm having exactly the same problem. I'm looking for a bench with shoe storage, something like http://www.potterybarn.com/products/cad ... ge-benches.
Landed cost would be ridiculous though.…

Paint not available locally, anyone know how to match it?

The problem is what you see on a screen is in RGB whereas paint is made up of CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black). Worldwide ink manufacturers also have their own…

Does anyone else have the same problem as me accessing the soft furnishings category? I don't have permission?

Solar hot water - Help me choose?

Thanks for all the replies. Ended up going for the Apricus with 44 tubes and a 400L tank. Hopefully we won't need the electric booster very often.

Afraid no natural gas otherwise we would have gone for an instantaneous gas heater.

I've spent the afternoon researching the internet about solar hot water systems and haven't come to any conclusions. Totally confused. ::wornout:: Aquamax, Rinnai, Rheem,…

Gas burning log fires

Does anyone have any other suggestions for a modern gas log fireplace for an open plan area? I'm off to look at jetmaster (do I really have to spend 8k?)

No electricians out there to answer my power point question?

Bidets revisited

The last time this topic was mentioned was in 2008 so I'm wondering if there are some new opinions out there. We want a toilet and bidet suite in our…

Solar outdoor shower

Ebay have them + various sites. I just googled images - solar outdoor showers.

Alternatively does anyone have any experience with traditional outdoor showers? I'm finding it hard to justify a stainless steel post with some taps…

Has anyone heard anything about solar outdoor showers? I was googling outdoor showers for a pool area and came across a few different versions. They sound like a great idea…

Hi Kerrin
You do have a beautiful house. I think you've specified just about everything so sorry about another question - what tiles (especially waterline) and finish did you use on…

Demolition, salvaging home

BAL40/Flamezone windows - Trend or Bradnams?

Stegbar also do BAL40 rated windows. We found a significant difference between quotes - we have a large amount of glass and are rated BAL40 on 2 sides of the…

Hi Ausdesign - do you have any recommendations for Sydney manufacturers? I've sent off numerous plans to various places with very little response. We have a significant amount of glass…

Hi LJ - sounds concerning. I'm finding these BAL regulations a minefield and we're just in the quoting stage. Judging by the quotes we're receiving back from manufacturers there seems…

Great - thanks for the info - I have some choice now.

Oops - made a big blue but in a good way. We're not -40BAL, it should have been -29BAL (level 3). Do I now have any alternatives for glass manufacturers?https://forum.homeone.com.au/posting.php?mode=reply&f=23&t=37606#

Thanks for the reply. Trend didn't need a window schedule to quote so that saves some $$$.
It's pretty disturbing though that there isn't any competition in this market. So…

We are unlucky enough to be building in an extreme bushfire rating area (-40 BAL) in the middle of Sydney. But that's another story.
I have a couple of questions if…

What colour is this?

Mmm good question - where did I get the picture from? I've looked at too many kitchens on the internet.
Thanks for all the suggestions - I assumed it was caeserstone.

Can anyone identify what colour ceaserstone and the colour of the cupboards is in this kitchen? http://yfrog.com/fvkitchendesignj
Thanks in advance.
