    that isn't going to be hardened steel. Its chrome plated aluminium so will be soft as. as others have said, goto bunnings and spend $5 on the right sized drill bit, or lash all out and spend $30 a cheap set.

    all good, you just bash the motar/cement with the rounded end of a ball pien hammer, it should chip off pretty easily. I assumed you where talking about some big globs of cement, not so much small splatter. Might be worth trying a decent pressure washer as well

    havabeer replied to a thread Kaboodle Laundry Cabinets in Laundry
    i thought the difference between the cabinets was the moisture rating of the chipboard. Kaboodle really doesn't work out that much cheaper then getting a cabinet maker to just knock you up some some cabinets. the sink question is a little open ended as it depends on the size of your sink.... I opted for a 600mm stainless round sink, that fits in a 600 x 600 cabinet with just a merbau bench top.

    only makes sense for it being hidden, just make sure its still reasonably accessible if you need to switch it off in a hurry.

    I found a back yard sprayer who painted our dishwasher and fridge matte black. most cumbersome bit will be trying to mask everything off or disassembly to make sure you can get into all the nooks and crannys, but i assume is not much different to painting any other bit of plastic.

    i agree with the others. the weeds will still grow in the rocks above the weed mat. better off just putting your aggregate in, putting your decorative stones on top and just spray the weeds every so often. I put some weed mate down, and a thinnish layer of wood chip for a stepping stone path down the side of our hose, the weeds would still weaved their roots into the mat its self and pulling everything up and making a mess every time you tried to pull them out.

    plumber has come in and done a leak check using a dye and confirmed its the shower leaking. We've been going to the house insurance at this point to see if we can make a claim against it that way but I'm sure it will be knocked back. I've since found a 2nd hand fibreglass shower for $450, would still need a screen and possibly a new waste location. going to get 2 quotes for the sealing might hedge my bets and do both at some point i'll get some photo's underneath as there is a bit to...

    I have a thread literally below yours kind of going through the same thing. In my opinion 3ish options 1 (or 2) piece fibreglass shower Get an epoxy sealing mob in to try and seal it Rip it up and start again.

    Will get some pics up of the bathroom area tonight hopefully. Yeah rough plan is to cut out all the damaged yellow tongue, install some joist's in-between the hardwood bearers to support the new yellow tongue where required, will put some under any suspect area's just in case. getting some fans onto it to start drying it out but I don't think we will have tenants in there for at least a month or two while we sort out all the problems and give it a tidy up. in terms of my shower...

    Hi everyone, I have what I believe is a leaking shower in our rental property, which has gone un reported by our tenant (who has since left) and i'm now left to cut out a bunch of yellow tongue flooring in the hallway. So being a rental which we will most likely knock down and re build in 5 - 10 years I'm trying not to spend a heap of money. I believe the leak is coming from the the internal corner of the shower of our mid 80's house but its a guess. the shower is cement sheet with...

    are you upset they ARE building one or saying that it doesn't matter? the future is going to be a mix bag of renewables like it or not its how its probably going to happen its just going to take quite a long time and ALOT of money. just remember that every snow flake doesn't blame its self for the avalanche
