What colour is this?

Laundry sliding door or not?

That door is west facing but the room delves get enough light. The door is double glazed with an internal venetian blind which is great for killing the western sun…

We have a deep khaki green splashback, Dulux Army Issue. I love it, one of my favourite things in the house.

Help identify this plant

It looks like a grass tree, xanthorrhoea. I am a complete novice though, so I may well be way off the mark.

Quick growing temporary screen

fascia colour help

The lining under the eaves? I think it's called soffit or something? My technical term for it is " the stuff under the eaves"! :lol:
