    Your pic file size probably needs reducing, can be done with mspaint, please do not use links.

    It's only a shed, placing the board would be the hardest part.

    Some jobs are better to pay someone else to do, especially if you have a bad back, not worth risking further injury. Hopefully you will have the firepit finished soon, just in time for summer :) I had one of these Milkcan firepits in the last house, it worked well. It was the montana one, they go on sale at various times of the year, got this one for https://www.milkcan.com.au/product/montana-2/#reviews I just put down gravel, removed the legs and sat it on some sandstone rocks...

    https://www.skepticalraptor.com/skepticalraptorblog.php/covid-infection-rates-are-not-unrelated-to-vaccines-debunking-research/ They chose to look at 68 countries, except they don’t list out any inclusion criteria for choosing which countries to include. And in their list, France, the UK, and Germany were not included – all of which have shown a huge drop in COVID-19 rates as a result of high vaccine uptake. This is a huge sign of bias and cherry-picking. They include low GDP countries...

    Being inside a wardrobe (your deleted thread), the H mould would be most suitable. I expect no more gaps would look messy.

    If you want to do a square set well, use profiles, nice straight sharp lines.

    Without referencing the video I do not see an issue. I have square set the tapered board without any issues with the tape, no need to basecoat set before applying tape, just tape into the taper.

    Checked it today with the toilet in place and you can only just see the very end of it as walking by the bathroom door and you have to go looking for it. Plus when you enter the door you also don't see it as it's off to the side. So I will go with it on the longer wall and no small wall covering it, and no reversing of the door, saves me some work :) Probably going for this look, but all black hardware, not sure why they went chrome shower and black mixer ?, the chrome looks wrong.

    It may mean an extra join to do so. I just scrape the taper with excess basecoat for a flush finish. Doesn't need to be the entire length as long as it is enough to support the skirt.

    You need to stop overanalysing everything, I hardly think someone would come barging in uninvited, I don't know of any people that come to my door that come barging in, if he came in you obviously invited him in. He has every right to ask if you are vaccinated, after all he is entering your premises for an undisclosed amount of time, if he felt there was a risk then he may not have come in, or may have implemented other PPE, who knows. Rude and patronising, you need to get out Marc and...

    The thought of watching that show makes me cringe. As for kitchens, I think there is a sweet spot for work area and it isn't big. Home theatres, passing fad!

    Only because Delta took hold and a panic began for vaccinations. Had that not happened NSW would not necessarily be leading the charge. As for other states lagging, people there will be groaning about their limited travel options and might get their numbers up. A good dose of Delta will certainly get them moving.

    It has nothing to do with citizens being police, not any links to Stalin or Xi. You are not required to show Vax proof everywhere you go or every business you enter. Nor is every business required to ask for proof as clearly stated on the NSW health site. As you can see it is mainly for business where you will be sitting down, or staying in there for an extended period of time. The TV guy asking you is a good thing, the thought you had to give him a sarcastic reply is a bad thing, he...

    Maybe your carpenter has a concern integrating plasterboard with the brickwork and would rather walk away from it! It may be a problem down the track. Rod made a comment as such here if it helps. #5

    I think you will find an amount of people will go get it done now for FOMO. Was as a friends house yesterday, they are going to a 21st birthday the boy who is 21 isn't vaccinated, so he is not allowed inside the house with the other guests and he has to wear a mask the whole time, while the others who are there for his birthday don't and are allowed to congregate inside the house. It was said he didn't get the vaccine as he couldn't be bothered, now he was saying he should have got it...

    There has been this online-auction thing going on in Sydney for the last months due to corona, I would never buy a house via an online auction as you can't see who it is your bidding against and if they are a genuine buyer or maybe a heap of shonky real estate agents in an office pushing the prices higher. I asked a mate who runs a realestate he said it's all legit, like a zoom meeting but you don't have to show your face, there is nothing to stop non potential buyers jumping in and boosting...
