site cut done, garage access question?

I think they need to make the garage accessible, but to what degree I suppose depends on your slope. How many meters have you got the 700mm fall? We have…

BAL (bushfire attack level)

Hi, I'd suggest $30k would be a fair way off the mark. We initially had a 29 aswell (since had it changed) and are now 12.5. When we were 29…
