    The house I was interested in has had an offer of $600,000. This price is amazing to me. A small brick two bedroom place.I think we have been priced out of the Melb market and will just have to buy in Qld it seems

    <font size=”2″>We have bought a property that can either be subdivided or can be developed as dual occupancy.

    The original house is on the left side so the block can be split right down the middle.

    On the right hand side a new house could be built.

    Hi Vita22 and othersI think its good to look at a property interstate as it makes you do more research. We probably wouldnt have bought the $50 report if we werent looking in Melbourne.My husband went to Footscray Tech and cant believe the  changes to Maribyrnong.  All he remembers is the industry that was there and the quarry etcAlso are loo…[Read more]

    We have booked our flight to Melb for end of January.Have found that we can buy a unit within our  budget in a few areas.  I have since found out a relative owns an agency in Melbourne so that will be a big help for us .How does Preston, Coburg, Clifton Hill Heidleberg  etc compare with each other?I am from Heidelberg originally and like all are…[Read more]

    Hello JacMWe think also Fairfield and PrestonYes we agree Werribee is a good choiceWe are from Melb originally but it would have changed a lot in the last 21 years we have been in Qld

This extended the main bedroomIt is a…[Read more]

    Hi CrashyIt just shows how important a paint job is. We are building a two car garage (which is not included of course in the $10,000 reno of the house)  in the same colours as the house.Because the house is built in the lower rhs of the block there is plenty of room for the garage. One day we could also extend the house but that would be in m…[Read more]

    Hi Annie and CrashyRe Stainless steel splashbacksIkea have them and they come in a certain size. They are very easy to put up and you can add as many as you like as they go on a rail along the wall. They also have glass splashbacks so its just a matter of sliding the splashbacks along the rail. IMG_0644.jpg

    Timber slats. I think they look nice painted white.  These hide the louvres which can be replaced one day. . We also removed the metal window hoodWe still have to remove some more of the cladding to reveal chamferboards underneath.The house will be painted soonIMG_1434.jpg

    Hello CrashyI'm so surprised IKEA allowed it to be transferable. I wish I could have a card like that I would just shop every day at IKEAThat was a good purchase of yours

    Bathroom makeoverI originally was going to replace the shower screen for a newer modern one. I then decided that I would just replace the vanity and taps and get an electrician to install a fan/light/heater combo in the ceiling. The shower screen will be ok for a few more yearsOLD VANITYIMG_1324-1.jpgNEW VANITYIMG_1354-1-1.jpg

    Hello CrashyI'm curious why did these people have a IKEA voucher for $10,000? Did they win it ?I would be so worried paying the money for a voucher from Ebay in case IKEA didn't accept it.IKEA are very funny sometimes like that with returns purchases etc
