Who should pay for 6 stars energy rating?

It's irrelevant who 'should' pay. You will pay, one way or another.

Is a house without a bathtub hard to sell in NSW?

You will wipe out a significant section of the market by removing the only bathtub unless your property is very much not suited to families, but even then I…

Need advice to start to build two town houses

1) Check land zoning.
2) Talk to a builder/architect/drafting firm and go from there.

Vinyl planks vs laminate flooring

We ripped up laminate and put down Karndean Art Select range vinyl. Best thing we ever did. It's commercial/light industrial grade, people don't believe at first its not actual timber.…

Voiding of contract through a fake insurance policy

Solar Panels- Which inverter

We have 2 SMA inverters which have been faultless. My vote goes to them.

Fridge cavity too shallow to fit decent fridge

If its a 700mm fridge I think they meant 100mm.

Footings disaster

Perhaps put up a floor plan? And clearly note what the now altered measurements are, what can and cannot change?
Some free eyes might see a solution.

Footings disaster

Would it be easier and cheaper to just take 10cm from the width of the house? Just a few cm from each room?
