not so bad if it attached to a house with people in who can cook for you if you grovel to them big time.
do you have any plans?
you have to attach it to photobucket or tinypic etc and then copy the 'image' code onto here.
then the photo will appear

oops, 3 yrs...I think you meant to say
if it is a pdf file, just take a photo of it and upload it
I like http://www.tinypic.com
you dont have to join to upload.
change the picture size to 15 monitor in the 'default' box and away you go.
once done, there is a link on the left that says 'message boards, forums' copy that link and paste it into this thread.
that is all you have to do and the picture will show up.
my thread is below and you can see pics a plenty there...very easy. even I can do it
if you do fail the intelligence test, then you really are a garage dwelling failure....sorry but
has to be said!!

Great looking plan and room for a bidet as well - I'm surprised Kiwi didn't comment on that!! She has a thing about toilets etc etc.. Great views from Bed 1 - lucky you!! Will enjoy watching you progress from a garage to a real house!!!

.. Great views from Bed 1 - lucky you!!
umm, I think that was bed 2's views...as in MINE! (and barbs)
but I guess bed one has the same as they face the same way...and i like it. I can watch kookaburras
yep, saw the large shower...didnt see the bidet!! I would have said, what is with the 2 loos?. that is posh.
looking forward to seeing a slab...will get my dancing shoes out.
good luck, and all the very best.
