Cheers boosta! Are you also happy with your Schweigen in terms of suction? ie. In the apartment that I lived in, the rangehood is like a jet but doesn't seem to work, there's layer of oil over cupboards and things which means lots of cleaning all the time Yes went undermount this time as we needed ...
Yes went undermount this time as we needed more cupboard space. Suction wise - yes@1600cm3, the largest for that model....

No experience with whispair but have a Schweigen undermount UM1170-9s (single motor 1600cm3 so only 1 hole cut in roof) and my stove plates are 900 wide, love it compared to my good old Robinhood rangehood haha! Both brands have great products. Suggest check whirlpool forum for...

Yes, brush (cut in) to areas which you can't roll first but at least try to roll as close as possible to edges after cutting in. Maybe my standards is too high (well I have to "blame" the painter who did an awesome job at my last build!) or painters now don't give a crap and just want the ...

Good progress - make sure you are onto the painters. Two pics of what I mentioned about "not rolling after cutting in". Yes I am pedantic especially when you see it throughout the whole house! http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c18/boostaoakford/IMG_20160120_073109125.jpg http://i24.photobu...

Suntrak Solar, AESS - check whirlpool forum. Hi, I was searching for some information about Solar panels here in SA on Home One, but can't seem to find what I'm looking for, so apologies if this is the wrong spot. We have been looking at Solar panels for some time now and are still procrastinating, ...

the SD is technically still a wet system except it uses syphonic drainage principles. I started with 4 and after installing that, i was doubtful of it initially and even added the vertical riser (part of a standard wet system) modification. I emailed Dennis the picture on my blog and he told me I wa...

Looks great, are you going with the standard spec for painting? Getting an extra coat? Just pay attention when they are painting, to me their painters are amateurs (edges - cutting in with brush and then don't roller it) and (parchment colour) solver interior (flat acrylic) is horrible stuff. I'm no...

Get a few quotes and decide (~$1650 to $2200 based on my quotes). You can do this prior to handover as long as your builder approves it, 1 less thing to worry about and then paving or, concrete can happen sooner. I used SMT drainage (not cheap, met me onsite and and answered a lot of my questions an...

I think most buyer when submitting an offer to the vendor, most will probably place subject to finance, building and pest inspection etc. In a hot market, the less restrictions the better for the buyer. How many will actually think to put subject to land survey or to a soil test? I bought in a hot m...

the low restriction inlet needs to be optioned hence the reason why I went with a colourbond steel tank (suspect you can't do with Poly as most will have a drain valve and outlet for pump but all not situated at 100mm from base as recommended) as it was manufactured to my specs. The two tanks is a p...

Wow! If you are going to replace the fence and pay it all by yourself (which was what I did), still send in the Form2 to your neighbour and give them the 30 days. They can't kick a stink that you "didn't consult" them.

roller blinds - DIY measure and order from Aliexpress. re: window splashback, depends on how wide you have outside, I only have the 1m clearance so I'm looking at the colorbond fence. No issues with privacy, security. re: tiler - I used Adam Nussio from Nussio tiling (he is on the list of tilers fro...

I have increased the kids bedrooms from 12m2 (old house) to 14m2 (4 x 3.5) (current house) and both with sliding BIR). This is factoring a single bed and a study table, 1 x tallboy with plenty of room etc. I found with the 12m2 (has tallboy x 1), I could not fit a study table. Each to their own.
