Hi Muppardo, We have recently built with Coral Homes in Brisbane and couldn't recommend them enough. You should use the search function and you will find plenty of recent Coral buildees who are more than happy. My thread is in my signature so check it out too. In regards to what Simon88 said, I woul...

Have you had a chance to do your landscaping yet? Waiting for the pics :) Hey 2pais, Sorry for being a slacko but just haven't had a chance to take any recent pics. Not that we've done much extra since my Handover pics. We are going to be painting the retaining wall ourselves and the weather has ju...

Usagi, sounds like you're in a difficult situation and I feel for you :( But my two cents would be to build another fence along that 4ft area, inside your boundary, at 6ft high. Planting shrubs takes time and then the evil neighbours could easily poison them but another fence inside your boundary, I...

Hey 2pais, As far as I know you can. Once you get those keys the place is yours, by then the builder would have had the council do their inspection. And the bank won't give you the cheque until their happy, so it should be all systems go once you hand over the cheque. Just make sure you've organised...

Hi Renee Your house looks fabulous ::kiss:: I think I read in your thread somewhere that you used Hogs Bristle - is this right? Anyway just wondering if you used 1/2 or 1/4 strength and if you feel the colour is dark enough. I'm changing all my interior paint colours at the moment and am debating o...
Thanks nn, we think it looks fabulous too We did use Hog Bristle 1/4 strength for all interior walls and woodwork (exce...

It was supposed to be last Fri but because not much on the 'to-do-list' was completed our SS has decided to put it off. We aren...

Your carpet and tiles match well together. Can i ask what type they are? 2pais, Thanks, we are really happy with the match too. I love the carpet and hopefully it will help hide all those stains children make :lol: The tiles are from Beaumonts they're called 'Savvy Latte' (400x400) and the Carpet i...

Hey Kim, Yay for a frame!! It's looking great :z: In regards to your Q's.... The stray pipe was something that we were concerned about also and had to ask our SS for the answer. It is what some people would refer to as a 'stink pipe'. They will attached a thinner pipe on top of the wider one. Then f...

So some updated pics of the main floor tiles, completed but not cleaned or grouted yet. The tiler will be back tomorrow to do the grouting.

I use an Enjo product called Marble Paste. It's works beautifully, it's sort of like a thick slightly coarse paste (like traditional Jif). I rub it on with a damp cloth in circular motions, then use a wet chux cloth to wipe off and then dry with paper towel. It comes up shiny and with no streaks etc...

Then showerscreens, robe doors, mirrors and carpets will follow. So at this stage we should be able to have our PCI next Thursday 27th...
