I'm looking for some ideas for a garden along the length of my driveway between the boundary and concrete. Currently it has grass but it is a pain to mow given the narrow width. Keen to see what others have done.

I have noticed the splashback behind our freestanding oven is quite dirty. How hard is it to remove a freestanding oven/stovetop to clean behind it? It's a gas/electric combo. Looking in the instruction book it looks like it should be installed with anti tilt brackets and also chains.

So we are trying to remove the sliding panels from our horizontal sliders so we can clean them. We can't clean from outside as we have fixed security screens. I have tried the push up and pull out at the bottom method but the wheels/rollers get caught. Any tips?

Unless you have bought one of the 450k+ blocks on the "lake" I don't think you will have any issues.

I looked into ring security floodlights but the $4 a month per camera for cloud storage is an additional cost that should really be free. I'm looking into a 4MP HIKVISION kit for our house.

That was my thoughts. Our plans show that it is built 200mm inside the boundary. There is really nothing we can do about it now but wondering what the legalities are if the fixings cause any future damage to our wall etc and whether it has any impact on termite barriers and the like.

I have just been advised by my partner that our neighbour has decided to fix a fence post to our built to boundary wall with dynabolts into our brick. Is this legal for someone to fix something to our house, without seeking and being granted permission? We are located in QLD.

We had a similar issue on our block. We were the lower block and cut our block slightly and it was our responsibility. Then the neighbours decided to fill their block so they proposed to us that we should go halves. In the end they paid for the lot as they filled their block substantially.

Who does the retaining favour? Are you on the high side or the low side?

Taking into account that the amount insured would need to cover rebuildin...

It appears they are all the same. Poor communication from project home builders seems to be an industry wide problem.

Hard to believe we are only 4 weeks in to our contract given the delays we had at the start of the build. We are now 4 weeks in and the brickies have just started. Windows are in and cladding is on. At this point we are going to be painting the cladding in the same colour as the roof and plant out a...

You see the rocks after they pressure hose the top layer off I think? We are going for a "salt and pepper" mix with ours, I think 70/30 black to white.

Frames and roof are now all up. Electrical, plumbing and gas rough in also completed. Unfortunately they have gone against all our discussions and put the gas hot water system on the wrong side of the house. We are extremely disappointed by this, especially given the amount of times we told them whe...

Been a while since I have updated on this so here goes. Our block was cut on the 28th January and then we were held up because the developer had not completed the final survey works. Finally after a two week delay we were able to get our survey completed and ready for site set out and underslab plum...

I had a look at the design guidelines for North Harbour and couldn't see a definition of what they deem a "secondary street frontage" to be. I would definitely be question it. Chances are whoever looked at your plans, didn't even realise it is just an access handle which runs beside your b...
