It’s different to Boral’s hard plaster, that can only be applied to solid masonry/concrete surfaces. The multi finish can be applied to Gyprock. Looks like there are now several companies selling it over here. http://joeandsons.com.au/products/thistle-multi-finish-plaster/

Well, we did end up going ahead with the Multifinish interior plastering over the white set. Cost was approx $1600 extra. 390 sqm home with 31c & 34c ceilings. I think all up there was 750m2 of internal walls plastered. It came out really well, glad we did it. Very smooth, very strong, almost g...
Glad it worked out well for you. Out of curiosity how did you go about finding the product and someone to apply it?

Everything’s as good as new. No issues with anything, I’d 100% do it again without any worries. Buying good quality appliances is the key as they likely have a much lower chance of going wrong.

Looks great. Did you use any sealer?

After taking another look. I like your idea of not filling the joins. Means I can do it in sections and once finished I can just silicone them.

It mostly level, has some aggregate showing in a few places. And a few small areas I can patch. The main purpose is to have a cleaner looking floor which is easy to clean and stops the moisture coming through.

Hi, just checked my calculations and realised I made a big mistake with the volume needed! Yes it’s much cheaper to hire the grinder at $1500 a day. I was planning on filling the expansion joint to make it flat. Assume if the epoxy is going to go down as thin coating after grinding I can just a thic...

Hi, I've been researching how to go about sealing and epoxy coating my garage floor and seem to be going around in circles on how exactly to do it and finding compatible products. I have a 60m2 concrete floor which is about 30 years old, it's made in 4 slabs and has areas with efflorescence due to m...

Hi, I was wondering if any of you in NSW have had a new lowered kerb and what it cost? Ours is breaking up and needs replacing, the actual cross over from boundary to lowered kerb is fine, it's just the lowered kerb part of the cross over which needs replacing and about 300m from bottom of lowered k...

Hi, We had a fantastic experience with importing our goods. The total cost of everything including taxes, custom duties, custom broker, insurance, shipping etc was almost exactly half the price. Some of our appliances have international warranties but from reading from other people on forums they ca...

Hi Steve, had a fantastic experience with the whole process and would highly recommend it if you're able to wait 4-6 weeks. Will message you directly.

Hi Stewie, thanks for the reply. I discovered the FEG system on the Lincoln Sentry website, but they couldn't be any more unhelpful. They won't give out any details of anyone or business which use the system. They can't even tell me if they have a display in any of their stores, and you can't even p...

Hmm completely forgot about the water pressure difference. I really don't want to have taps blasting out water and soaking the kitchen, perhaps it's not worth the cost saving here.

Hi Do you have or have seen the FEG wardrobe system? We really like the look of it but have some concerns about having shelves with only rear support. We're also looking at the Lema Hangar sold by Roger Seller and Presotto Varius from Eurolife. Both are excellent but the FEG system will be much chea...

Thanks for the replies, now anyone know anything about taps? Gaggenau is certainly a good high quality and reliable brand of appliances. When importing my only concern would be the warranty. What happens if one of the appliances arrives with a fault or damage? Who do you turn to if there is a proble...

Hi, We're currently speaking with a company in Germany to import our Gaggenau appliances. The appliances are approximately 45% of the cost here. I've been trying to look at duty fees online and it appears that we have to pay 5% duty and 10% GST and approximately a $50 fee. Is there anything else we ...

Hi Bels, Yep the newer firmware is supposed to have virtual host settings, mine was running 3.0.8 and didn't have it, so upgraded to the latest version 3.0.10 and it doesn't have it either. I'll look into the port forwarding, thank you. I've got the iVMS-4500 ap but unless I'm doing something wrong ...

It'll be saved to the NVR which can record at full frame rate, but I want to have it stored off site too. Not so worried about the quality here, as it's just for worst case scenario if the NVR is stolen.

To be honest I'm not really sure what I'm doing, still can't get it working correctly :( I thought it'd be easier to connect to the cams externally if they were connected just to the switch, but for some reason I can't connect directly to the cameras at all. At the moment they are connected to the D...

Hi Bels. A few things have changed since my last post :) I haven't opened the Y Cam and will be returning it. I've purchased a Hikvision NVR and 4 turret IP cameras, which are going to be connected to a switch. Got it all yesterday, but having some issues in setting up the cameras to be accessible d...
