Decent quality winders for awning windows...

Apart from Whitco, are there any other well known brands of window winders? I have some no-name winders at the moment and one-by-one they are starting to bind…

This thread has certainly died down of late!
One thing I wonder is why people spend so much on gigantic houses and then leave them looking like garbage dumps. The…

Sewer smell in bathrooms

Please forgive me if this question has already been asked but does the smell come from every waste in both main and ensuite? The smell is in your shower…

Have you had timber decking before? If it were me I would not put it there as it's a pain to keep clean and maintain. It's pretty much…

Side or rear alfresco for 15m blocks?

I have a side alfresco. "walled in" on three sides, albeit with two big sliding doors meeting in one corner and more windows (a lot more glass than brick).…

Ducted heating paired with evaporative cooling.

I'd be very surprised if the heating and cooling were using the same ducts!
Evaporative has some advantages over refrigerated. Cheaper to run (about one tenth the price) for starters.…

Wow, I thought it was sewerage works and preparation for the re-alignment of that bit of Palmers road! I hope it's a Caltex, for their pay-at-the-pump.
On another topic, there…

I have these Fernco grateseals in my shower waste. Being that they restrict down there is a chance of blockage from hair. There should be a trap under…

IXL Heater/Fan/Light worth getting?

I'd assume that the builder will stick in a regular exhaust fan to suck out steam if the OP doesn't go for an three-in-one.

Looking at those new streets going in on the other side of Palmers road there doesn't look to be any room left over for Palmers road to be duplicated!
