Is Double Brick Good for Noise Insulation?

Yes it does. I live in a home where all walls, internal and external, are double solid brick and the sound proofing is excellent. However, windows, ceilings and crappy…

I think this looks shocking ! - what do you think ?

My builder "forgot" to insulate 9 common walls. Only found out when I went up to the roof for something else. Double whammy was that they were already painited, so…

It's very hard to outsmart interest rates, that's why there are only a few very wealthy bankers. Problem with selling and buying is all the associated transaction costs in particular…

Advise on Projector, Reciever, Media Centre

Hi Roda
Noise reduction is better and you don't have to second guess where you hang things as brick will carry plenty of weight once you drill in.

Tip - Give the pine / plasterboard a miss, and brick wall your theatre room

Rubbish Bins on-site

Or don't keep a bin on site. My builder delivered, filled and removed my bins on the one day.

Thinking of doing a letterbox drop to buy a house

In the end, offering over the market price will get you what you want. And even then, a smarter vendor would use your offer to possibly leverage a better outcome…

Kitchen : Open Plan V Kitchen "room"

Open plan kitchens have been a part of new homes for about 40 years. In fact my massive renovation of a 30s clinker brick home, involved building a new open…

Laundry in a cupboard?

A dreadful idea. So you then iron clothes in the living area and have clothing everywhere. Can understand if you have space limitations, but don't underestimate a decent laundry…

Fair to say that the RBA is the biggest congregation of idiots on the planet - and that is an accurate generalization. Higher IR have only hurt one group of…

Tip - always put a drain hole in the floor of your bathroom

Good news for queenslanders then. When I asked my builder to install them in my house in Melbourne, it was like I had asked him to split an atom. He…

Compulsory in homes in Asia, but doesn't seem to happen a lot in Australia. A complete no brainer if there ever was one. No need to worry about flooding your…

roof pitch costs extra???

2440mm is OK, but on a 2nd level they tend to drop it to less especially if you are extending on an older home.

Staircases - Types and Descriptions

I had my builder remove an entire stair case and start again. Very simple reason - he didn't listen to my instructions. Always go for at least a 1M wide…

Home renovation gone wrong (Sydney)

Your brother needs to keep the corresspondence short, factual, and non-emotional. Send a registered letter. No progress, litigate. Don't bother with statutory bodies, as they often deliver lose/lose outcomes.

Shutters anyone ?

Yes, like that. You can also choose where you want to hinge them.
They won't keep as much noise out that double glazed windows do though, and you may get some…

Always go for a higher roof pitch if possible, and even better, rake your ceilings. The extra head room is priceless (though it does cost!). Standard ceiling heights are just…

Builder won't let us...

Nothing to do with insurance, but more about their 25% margin. Try and push harder and call their bluff.

Yes, they are the most expensive option, aside from exotic gold trimmed curtains etc, but easily the most practical and durable (even if most are made in China).

Plantation shutters are great. Just did 22 windows with them, but be prepared for perpetual dusting.

Wardrobe Doors

Mirror doors, walls etc belong in bordellos. High quality solid doors from any of the chains such as doors-a-plenty, doors plus etc, would be a better solution.

Horrendous.
I was almost forced to put those windows due to some silly council privacy law, that did not allow me to place normal windows. Instead I placed a large normal…
