vacant block, how to know who owns it to offer?

I'm glad to hear that it is mostly good. The rest sounds pretty normal. There seem to be always bits and pieces that go slightly wrong or are not fully…

Red Jase and Gristy, I've sent you a PM with some information.

Hi Red Jase and Gristy,
I've got some photos at home, so I'll try to send something to you tonight. Same with pricing as I don't have any of that information…

Here's another vote for TopCat Landscaping. Talk to Trevor and he'll help you. They can do almost everything and if he doesn't do it himself he'll have contacts to do…

Please recommand a retaining wall builder in Adelaide

OK, if the $2000 is for the whole application then that's probably not so bad after all. But you should be able to do the paperwork yourself. It will just…

The colours will look different and much nicer once you put your furniture in and put curtains up and the like. Ours was sooooo stark white when it was empty…

So sorry to hear about all your trouble. That's terrible! I'm a bit surprised though because your house is in an area where already a lot of people live. Admittedly…

We do not have any built in robes, so that problem didn't come up for us. So unfortunately I cannot help you with this.

Thank you Claypot. The floorboards are Merbau and while they look great we are starting to wonder if it was such a great idea to put floorboards into a house…

I find it interesting that you get your roof first and then the Hebel walls afterwards. They did it the other way around for our house. I wonder if this…

Not with the roof trusses but there were some questions about a beam and if it was installed correctly or not. Yes, that did take some time to sort out,…

How much can you build on a plot in Adelaide?

Don't ask the builders, as they would not know for sure but just give you some 'general number' they think is the most common.
It is probably slightly different from…

Yes, that's what they say, but it doesn't always work that way. For us it was 7 months from when they started the frame (slab was poured just before the…

Here are a couple of pictures of our sliding doors to the dining area. I don't think it looks any different in Hebel than in brick?
