thanks so much again for the visualisation. Wow! I am amazed at the feedback and stuff I have received here and extremely thankful!! I think my preference is definitely the prior floor plan; to move the kitchen to allow the living to be at the rear. Given the kitchen is currently not livable by my s...

If the long term plan is to demolish/ rebuild, can't you do it now? Because moving everyone in, then moving everyone out again to demolish and rebuild for a year or more is a huge hassle. Plus, all the renovations (your new kitchen and bathroom and wardrobes etc) you are planning now will end up be...
I wish - in debt up to our eye-balls, definitely not enough funds available to do this. I know re it being a waste if r...

@bestspecials: "I like the idea of adding a 4th bedroom and putting cavity sliders on to either make an extra bedroom or tv room for the kids." - Wow, thanks for the floor plan! that's great for helping me visualise may be possible. Love that idea because it can be a kids play room etc and...

4 bedrooms + outside out of 110 sq m? This will be extremely tight, if you ask me. E.g., decent sized 4 bedroom apartments start from 150 sq m. What about adding one more floor? not an option unfortunately, will cost too much. It seems to work (squeezing in 4 bedrooms) - unless I'm missing somethin...

Update...the photos were sent to two builders who apparently said "don't worry - its not going to fall down"...which if you ask me, I don't know how they can make that assessment off a photo without looking at it. Anyhow they recommended it be removed and quoted to do that. However the own...

Seems quite bad then? If it collapsed I imagine it would be extremely heavy and do some significant damage. Hopefully they agree to send a professional over to look at it.

Yep. It's waiting on the owner. But I won't be surprised if the response is no they have never had an engineers report on it before and that they don't see the need as it is 100 years old and nothing has fallen down to date... If it's something like that do you think it's worth strongly pursuing? Ob...

Thanks for the reply. So sounds like you think there is a risk the whole thing could fall down at any time? It must be rendered brick arch then. There are many cracks elsewhere and where the brickwork is exposed the mortar does seem very dry/weak, this is the spot which worries me though as it is re...

Hi everyone I rent a 100 year old terrace house. In the hallway there is a large arch with some big cracks through it. It's been like that (seems unchanged) for the last 6 months since I moved in, but I was looking closely at it and got me worried that the whole thing could fall at any time?? I'm no...

I'm thinking I'll bolt 2 x large L brackets to the vertical part of the green sill, it's about 100mm Flat surface from top to bottom, so hopefully long enough. I think it is made of concrete. Should I be using Plastic wall plugs and screws or dynabolts or something? Mind you I rent so I need to poss...

Kelvinator said that the "more than 160mm" is not a misprint but can't give me any reason for it...and said it must be followed. Bit odd as I have never seen a unit 160mm inside the room, they are usually close to being flush with the wall. Do you think it would cause any issues having it ...

thanks Bels. Yes I think 160mm is quite a lot too? I've always seen window air cons mostly flush with the internal wall and not so far inside. For the bracket are you thinking this should be mounted outside under the unit? Like this: http://s3.amazonaws.com/wordpress_production/blogs/wp-content/uplo...

thanks for the info. how deep/wide should a trench be in the vacant block? yes the eave is out horizontally now. no signs of movement or step cracking in mortar. in the garage (just near where the eave problem is) there is a few hairline cracks in the slab (always been there), and the internal acces...

We have a bit of a problem on our 1 yr old home that when we get heavy rain, the side of the house is getting a lot of water and it isn't draining away as it should. I need to get this resolved, from the docs I got with the house our soil site classification is Class S (Slightly Reactive), slope fla...

Our home was completed being built just over 1 year ago, we have lived here for 6 months. We bought the property as a 'brand new/completed new build home', the builder had built/designed it and later put it on the real estate market where we bought it...so don't know if you would call that a 'turn k...

Just had a thought, we have approx 120m2 of tiles in our new home, and did not get any spare tiles left here by the builder. The tiles are 500x500 gloss white, I was thinking...should I be sourcing/buying spare tiles for the house now while they are still available, in the off chance I need them (cr...

Is it normal for a house to need two vent pipes? Is this something that could be retro fitted now easily or a major operation like needing to go inside a wall or the concrete cut up?
