Extraction fan dripping

I'm thinking it might be the difference between a traditional fan and the newer centrifugal fans that seem common. The new design does not seem to move anywhere near the…

Garden Lighting

One thing is if your not sure, get the landscaper to lay a conduit under driveway/paths so that if you do decide to add lighting later, it will make the…

Internet Speed Issues in Doreen

Much the same using mobile broadband in the area, as there is a lack of ports available, the wireless is also very congested in peak times and slows to a…

Show us your garden! Please. Tree mulch V Garden pebbles

The closest mulch that I have seen to fresh tree lopper mulch is the bush mulch at aumanns, it doesn't have as much green matter in it, but you oculd…

Noise in the house

I think one of the other big things is empty rooms, as the sound seems to reflect off the hard surfaces.
I noticed a huge difference in my house, as it…

Noise in the house

Perfectly normal, the more soft furnishings (couches/curtains/etc) you have the better it gets. Empty rooms with hard floors are the worst for it.

Ladies and Gents, step right up! Mernda & Doreen Residents

I assume the traffic controller was there this morning, as there was a couple of people putting out the reduced speed limit signs when I went through.

The worry for me is that the people that are pulling out of Schotters Rd don't realise that there are no lower spped limits in place, so the traffic is…

Thanks guys, will hopefully install the speakers this weekend if I get the time. I think that wall mount will be the go, no kids at the moment, but a…

Sorry to bring up the topic of wireless internet again, but have the issues with vodaphone been solved?

Advice on placement/layout - cheap system

Firstly, I was on a very small budget and needed something that would sound better than the factory speakers on my new tv. I have a 5.1 system.

Saw that in the local paper too, and was wondering if it was South Morang or Tempelstowe that was closing?
No info on their website.

Council DA submissions

Some councils are notoriously slow! Design approval might be different from building permits though.

They may have overloaded the power point and needed to reset the safety switch, that is the only reason that I can think of.
Do you deal with them directly at…

If I remember correctly, wasn't Coles meant to one of the stores on the list for the development site on the bridge inn rd / yan yean rd intersection?

Either way its nice and close, at least I don't have to go to one of the major shopping centres!

Obscure glass

Don't forget the insulating properties of curtains/blinds, and heat loss through glass. Might still save you plenty of power from heating in winter, especially as it is an upstairs room.
