    I remember hand sieving a garden bed to get rid of oxalis, the result was the tallest, healthiest oxalis you have ever seen distributed evenly through the bed.

    Bit hard to do a hit and run in Victoria, the law has changed you have to disclose known problems, if not the new owners can come back and bite hard. Also any works in the last 10 years I think. In this case how on earth do these get through the permit system.

    I would put in steel, hardwood will have a life but also will rot. A lot easier to replace now before you build

    Actually you are better off engaging the engineer yourself, what you are after is a report based on your needs, not one based on the installers needs. They should be the same of course but we can all be swayed by a convincing argument. Same with the repair, get quotes if you are attempting to rectify a problem, you need to go through the process of fair trading if they will not pay, if they agree they are at fault it will depend on what you can negotiate. Always start with negotiation, although...

    I would not take the word of the AC company at all, either get a builder or engineer to have a look and go from there. That looks dodgy to me especially as they have cut two trusses

    We have family in Argentina, although the generation we had contact with have now died so no contact in recent years. It seemed their lives were punctuated bu crooked Co-op managers, dodgy pension payments and graft and corruption screwing them at every turn. A country that had so much promise after WW2, these days it just seems to battle messes of its own making.

    Yes, I have seen those reports, I have a friend who is a Doctor in Sao Paulo and another who is in a non medical field in Rio, from converations they have said the main vaccine used initially is Sputnik, Brazil seems unhappy with Sinovac and there are supply issues with AZ and Pfizer. There is no point tossing this around its a fluid situation, I'm quite uncertain as to where they are now in their vaccination program.
