    Whats your experience with epoxy grouting? Is it long lasting. ie: have you had it for years without issues? Thinking of spending the additional ~$300 on each shower for epoxy grouting (shower floor and walls). I see this as double water proofing which can only be a good thing providing its without its maintenance issues.

    Bart1080 replied to a thread Duck poop driveway in Concreting
    ...had a simular issue where the ducks would venture in at night under the verandah. Trained the Border Collie to chase them off solving that one!!! The poop though does leave a stain on unsealed concrete and worse the longer its left. Seems like that it eventually fades.

    Hey WHitey, would be interesting to see how the husky 3 blade in that review would perform on the reeds. Might be the next blade I get when the current one is worn out....which is not too far away

    Hey Chalkyt, Feel your pain :) Ive a stihl head. No bumping required. Had it for 8 years and really great provided you load up the line correctly. When it gets short, it will auto feed out the line (most of the time) Would never go back to the bump feeds again....they are a long distant memory!!!! This year the reeds (the ones you can get in paddocks, creek, edges of dams...

    I know what your saying, but having a hard time visualising the finished look without drawing it up in CAD. Sounds like your going to have 3 distinct roof lines and perhaps vertical flashing (tin or semi clear laserlite/corflute type look/feel) Without seeing the current roof line, measurements of how far each jut out and the width of each, hard to suggest look at possible options. So I'II throw out some ideas: If you drew a line from the top right corner to the bottom left corner...

    You could always paint a black line the same thickness across the entire wall!! I'm sure that would look good providing your looking the other way :D Very nice job. Must have taken for ever to do. Like the LED lighting that just polishes the entire job off. How in the world did you get those slabs of stone in the bathroom?....lifted in before the glass was put on??

    Merry Christmas all. Hope you get time to relax with what ever and who ever you need to....Family, Friends or just plain solo time :) Been an interesting year or couple of years. Appreciate some of the advice or perspectives that have been provided either from my questions or others.

In the mean...

    T is the distance off the title boundary - ie: Boundary = 0.0m, S=1.3m off the boundary & SW = 2.6m off the boundary D would be depth C could be a chainage distance from a zero point to find where the title boundary offset was taken. OR the connection point for the house sewer & SW but again from a zero point further up the plan that we cant see.

    ...if it were me, for $1500, I'd go the concrete option. zero issues in the future with the possibility of water affecting a wood base. other wise have you considered putting the $4k into a more expensive tile or stone paver. Some of them are 20mm thick which only leaves ~90mm step out of the door.
