Man hole

Hi stewie,
I understand that the plasterboard in rested on the architrave.
However, what can you put to keep it down so it does not go up/down with wind/air/airconditioning movement?
Is there some…

moudzj,
I'm a girl. :)
Question: How do you keep down the 'door' cover on the man hole?
What is an elegant way of holding it down, so…

Man hole

I have no experience in making man holes.
I am just trying some common sense approach, to help future tradesmen to check under the roof etc.
I believe that by putting…

This may be an insensitive question, but I am looking at the optimal size of a man hole, regarding access to the roof:

Height of rangehood

What is the recommended height of the overheads?
Also, is it necessary to cut the tile (800mm one)?
Wouldn't it be easier to position the overheads directly over them?

Height of rangehood

Would it be impractical if I actually leave the tile as it is, and then position the cupboards over them?

Height of rangehood

I found some nice tiles: 800x800 for the splashback. Nothing fancy, just practical, as I could not decide on any other splashback.
So thought it would be nice to have…

Seals for garage doors

That sounds good.
Would polyethylene insulation give off any fumes?

Height of rangehood

Would anyone like to please shed some light:
What would happen if the height of rangehood is 800mm, instead of the recommended 600mm (for electric cooktop)???
Would it draw as much vapour?

But won't it move when the doors open/close?

Hi Althom,
But what would you use to stick the insulation to the door?

Seals for garage doors

Hi Althom,
May I ask, what is the double side foil air bubble insulation?
Where can it be purchased?
Does it come incased in something?
How would you keep it in place?

So basically, to be succint, and state facts only?

Hi Althom,
Thank you for sharing your experience with the brush option.
Only door insulation might make difference to the temperature.

I am not particularly fond of bugs, snakes and their companions.
Speaking to several garage companies today, and these are the options:

and
- rubber…

Hi pasalamat,
How did you go with the new build?
Did any of the advice you received help you with the new build?

It is good news it got sorted.
Did you have to engage the lawyers?
If so, how much did they cost, and did you have to hire a specialist of some sort?

sunny74, I was reading your story today.

Garage wall storage: brooms/sticks

Thank you Althom. I appreciate your help.

So that means that they can be moved any time, without adjusting anything?

Hi Althom,
That looks very neat and nice.
How do you ''move'' the adjustable brackets?
Which pieces did you purchase from the big green shed?
Whenever I go there, it is overwhelming:…

However, would any of the following avoid the need to upgrade to anything higher:

chippy,
Would you be aware, at what height differential are rangehoods tested re: amount of extraction?
For instance, some people place cooktop and rangehood 750mm apart, some place them 800mm apart?

Are they made from stainless steel?

Would you recommend a particular website where one can have a look at the finish - mitred versus unmitred?
