Hi Folks
Some guidance would be greatly appreciated....
We built a new house last year in Perth. As you know, most houses in Perth are double brick (with a suspended slab for…

Hi all
Our house is pretty much done and we moved in about a month ago. One issue that's really bugging me is this. In our ensuite, we built a double…

Antique White USA - Oops, not really

The mob that mixed the paint have compared the paint to the Dulux sample, and according to them (in writing), it is within 0.21 microns of the Dulux sample. Apparently…

The kitchen guys told me, and the Dulux technical help guy told me as well (I called the 132525 number)

Not sure which brand. Dulux doesn't make a 2-pack enamel for residential purposes, so a company called Mirrortone did the matching. They seemed to imply they utilised the Dulux Directions…

Well
The kitchen is in. Laminex Parchment was a good match, and we used it in the fridge recess and kicks. The side panels were painted.

Hi all
I'm just about to get my paving done, so I'm going to run some 12V cabling underneath so I can put some bollards in there later. (This is for…

Yea - it's common sense, but that doesn't necessarily apply with some of these trades.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a paving guy in Perth?

Hi all
Our house is close to completion and the painter has sealed the plaster and applied one coat of our chosen colour (Dulux Hog Bristle). The problem is that we…

Painted Bifolds

Hi All
We're having five metres of timber bifolds installed in our living room, and they are going to be painted white (much to our builder's dismay!).
Now, the frame will also…

Ikea Faktum Cabinets in Walk-In Pantry

You'd be surprised at what cabinet makers are charging - hence the increase in availability of flat-packs. We're building a custom house and we know the builder's mark-up.

We're doing a custom build and that Corinthian door was about $2,500, plus builder's margin. That was for a 2400 door (std is only 2100).
