Well, I have travelled both routes and concluded that the trains rarely run to the planned timetable. Miss a connection and the difference is negligible.
Add to that it is…

Not so.
I traveled to the city from Leppington and back each day. The train goes via Glenfield and Liverpool. It does take longer but by the time you factor…

I'd like to offer you a solution but I had the same problem. In then end I asked an electrician who was doing some other work around our place…

Hi Cal. Welcome. The creek filled a little but coped very well. Not sure about the rest of Willowdale though.

We did (PVC to bathrooms and timber everywhere else).
The product is OK. Installation was workmanlike but not up to the standard of the shutters we installed at our previous home…

Sorry to hear that Vennie.
Here is a link to the Camden Council Environmental Noise Policy - see page 42 for domestic air conditioners.
The short story is that a residential air…

Don't forget that if the rendering is part of your DA and developer approval, you will probably not be able to get an occupancy certificate until it is done…

H Rach. It all depends on how well you want to get along with your new neighbours! I would check with the covenants administrator at Stockland (her name is Vy)…

Thinking about it. If you go to Livvis cafe at Willowdale you'll see artificial grass near the play area.
The cheap stuff is awful, but the good quality staff is…

Hi Rach. Most of those were due through our builder, Eden Brae, so I can't really comment. However, we have contracted to build a pool, and so far (construction soon…

Hey Soontir
What was the basis of the complaint?
Doodia is the botanical name for a common fern native to Australia and NZ.

Hi Lincoln
We had a similar issue which we did not pick up until our kitchen was installed but before power points fitted. We spoke to our SS and he made…
