How cute! Ours is a spoodle.

Hi everyone,
We went out to our block yesterday to check on our progress and they have nearly completed the downstairs frame. I didn't have a spirit level with me,…

I see you've edited your previous comment haha. How do you suggest I check for self closing doors that aren't in the picture? Thanks for the laugh mate.

Righto mate.

I suggest you read the OP's thread again, as it's pretty clear you've missed the point of the original post.
And that picture really doesn't show me anything, so not really…

Are they throughout the entire flooring, or just a couple here and there? If there’s only a couple, I can’t see why they shouldn’t replace them. If it’s throighout,…

Yes you shouldn't order blinds based off the measurements on the plans, as they are structural measurements including the window frame. If internal dimensions are 2-3mm out, that won't…
