You know you live in the west when your visitors shoes get stolen from outside your house.

Extension Cost Per Square Metre - are builders serious!

The higher cost of renovations actually has to do with risk. The builder does not know what they are working with, and so has to add a risk premium…

They are also turfing that 'cricket' enclosure. Looks like a tennis court now? Or indoor-outdoor soccer area?

Then is that why we should be sharing houses, even after we grow up? I know there are certainly adults that should learn how to share. The push to…

Hahah... I had never even considered thinking about the statement that way. I'm so used to doing things in 100,000s of tonnes that anything less is considered a 'baby'.…

Metals and Mining here. I'm trying to make all that copper for that data centre.

At least we know where the Data Centre will be now.

Based on current electricity prices or after the carbon tax has been in a few years?

Looks like they have amended their design. It was initially going to be 4 stories and 23 dwellings.

I find it ironic that for a suburb that is littered with open air parks and now sporting facilities the density of gyms is quite high.
I'd rather have a pool…

Looking at the monstrosity it is now I think it is a basketball court. The outward jutting pylons are intimidating in jet black though. I'm worried it will…

Cricket nets would be great too - so long as it doesn't turn into a place for the local druggies to hang out off their face or something.

I thought it was the replacement child's play park to replace the one that was lost due to the pavilion.
The reserve will probably be there long after we are gone.

Which big parkland? The grass reserve near Coles?

Thanks for that - I did wonder why they haven't taken advantage of the water (like Manor Lakes) but as you say, it is only a retarding basin. With…

The only thing that would suit that site (back to back with freeway/prison) is more industrial wharehosing/transport. Whether we are saturated already with it in the area (Mt. Derrimut…

I would hate for them to spend $$$ on making it look better only to rip up again when they actually build the other side.
