I use pink Handy Andy, I use Handy Andy on everything. It cleans windows and splashbacks without leaving any ...

Just keep in mind you will need room either side of sink for stacking dirty dishes to wash and then to put them on the otherside when done. I would personally do the middle if there is no dishes out on the counter then you should have enough room for food prep

Although you might save the need for drop edge beams, digging a sloping block until it's completely level could mean that you will need retaining walls instead. Hi yep we are getting two retaining walls put in to have two seperate levels one for the house one for garden and extra lawn (the block is...

We have a DEB on one side of our build. I think with a sloping site you either retain the land to make block flat to build on or you incorporate a DEB during construction. We went with a DEB as it meant we didn't need to allow for an increased setback with retaining close to the boundary. Our DEB l...
