OK that makes sense, thanks mate. I think I may have to speak to the engineer. That sounds very deep for a 5 x 3 wooden structure.

Hi, all I'm building a home studio myself (no previous construction experience) based on a design from a draftsman. I worked quite a bit out for myself, but I have a question about how to frame the eaves on a gable roof. From my research it seems there's no right or wrong answer, but I'd appreciate ...

Hi all We'll be filling in some of the building cut from around out house, which means we'll have to put retaining walls there, but I have no idea how to approach it. The photos below aren't the best, but it should give an idea of what the situation is. Basically the soil will go up the level of the...

Hi, all We've had a garden designer plan a garden for us in the backyard which will require a hefty bit of digging and leveling (around 20 by 18 metres with a 1.5 metre incline). He gave us the names of two landscapers who quoted us $75k (yeah, I know) and $11, respectively just for that. Obviously ...

Hi, all We're in the process of landscaping our back garden and will need to drag some of the soil back towards the house to raise the ground level. However, our house is on stumps, so I'l going to have to clad the stumps to hold the soil. My father in law thinks that there's some kind of plastic pl...

Hey all, we're in the process of planning the back garden of our new home, and I'm hoping I can get some recommendations for designers in Melbourne. It's a basic garden design for the most part - we have a rough idea of what we want, but need some expert advice - but we also want to extend our deck,...

Hi all. I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience with any shingle roof suppliers in Melbourne? The guy our builder has used in the past has left the business, so I'm on the lookout for another supplier, but can't find any recommendations anywhere. If anyone can throw a recommendation my way it...

Hi, all. I'm just wondering if anyone here has used Eurotech for their uPVC windows before and what their opinion was of them? I've been pricing up uPVC window companies and Eurotech's quotes are well under everyone else's, so I'm just doing some due diligence. The only three mentions I've found of ...

Hi all Thanks so much for the information, it has all been very useful. To answer some of the questions, the photos show the drawers with the plastic wrap still on them. I'm pretty sure its gloss malamite finish. With regards to the appliances, yes the kitchen maker was given the details (ie. make a...

Hi there, quick question for anyone who may know: My in laws are having some issues with a cabinet maker who's making their handle-less kitchen drawers. He's built their cupboards and drawers with an indent of around 55mm (that is, the drawer sits 55mm behind the edge of bench top). Thus whilst the ...
