    Alternative option to Floor Boards

    You're welcome. Africandaisy, if you really have your heart set on bamboo, go for the strand woven, but if you're putting it down over a concrete slab, make sure it's really really dry. Put a double moisture barrier down. And make sure when you go to the shop you ask them what the moisture...

    Alternative option to Floor Boards

    Would just like to put my two cents in here about bamboo so there are two sides to the bamboo flooring story. I'm not anti bamboo, I'm just giving the facts. Firstly, bamboo is not a hardwood, it's a grass. Bamboo is highly regarded as being incredibly strong, tests have shown that it has a...

    Timber Floor Species in Bundaberg Cottages

    Hi there I was wondering if anybody is familiar with timber floors in Bundaberg, especially in those little cottages that were built maybe 1950's for the sugarcane workers. Just wondering if there was a particular species that was popular around that era. For example does anybody know...

    Do I have termites

    Eeeww, I touched it. It feels like dirt (I think). Seems to be a seasonal thing. If I put down some ant rid they disappear after a couple of days and I just vacuum up the gunk and it won't appear again until next time. Oh god, ants nest, should I be worried. Someone said to me the other day...

    Do I have termites

    haha I don't know, can they? I've had two different pest spraying guys in over the last couple of years, and they both haven't been concerned when I've showed them. Thanks guys.

    Do I have termites

    Hi I'm in the Gold Coast and wondering if this is from termites? There are normal small black house ants running around in them. It only happens by the two lounge windows which have a garden outside. The pest guy has seen them and didn't seem worried about them so I didn't either. But I...

    Hi there Can anybody recommend a good pest spraying company on the Gold Coast please. I'm starting to get creepie crawlies around. I've been using the same company for the last 3 years, but they've put their prices up once again, not sure what other people would pay for a 4 bedroom house...

    Question re: OTT Property Inspection

    OMG, another friend has just put something on her Facebook about her landlord. Must be a day for it. She just got a letter from her landlord saying she was in breach of her tenancy because she never got around to getting the carpets professionally cleaned before her inspection the other...

    Question re: OTT Property Inspection

    Yeah I thought it was maybe not the entire story, seemed OTT to me, and I wondered if it was even enforceable?

    Question re: OTT Property Inspection

    Hey guys My friend lives in Beerwah in a rental property. She had a property inspection recently, and she had her washing folded on the lounge suite when he came to do the inspection. The rest of the house was tidy. He told her to move it and put it in the drawer next time, and issued...

    Can you buy Yams & Fejoia on the GC

    Never tried taro, I know you've got to cook it properly or it's poisonous. Love sweet potato though. I wonder if anywhere grows yams?

    Can you buy Yams & Fejoia on the GC

    I'm thinking maybe you need cool weather for apples, not sure. I do find we lack in some foods in the Gold Coast, I went to Sydney last year and think all I did was eat! I was so missing some nice pastries and cakes and a decent cappuccino I just went completely crazy food wise, haha. My next...

    Can you buy Yams & Fejoia on the GC

    I knew our tree was quite old when we moved in, so they probably take years to start fruiting or something. But I think lots of fruit in Aussie is so exotic, I'd never tried a mango until I got here, cos they were so expensive back in NZ. And they just grow in peoples backyards, which I...

    Can you buy Yams & Fejoia on the GC

    Thanks, yes might have to just grow my own, they'd probably be horrendously expensive anyway, being exotic and all, LOL. I thought those big brown spikey things (Durian?) or something were pretty exotic. Re your tree and no fruit, we had trees back in NZ, and I think you need a boy and girl...

    Can you buy Yams & Fejoia on the GC

    Hi people! Asked the guy in the fruit shop today and he said nobody sells them as they are considered exotic, personally I didn't think they were that exotic, but there you go. So are there any exotic fruit shops on the Gold Coast does anyone know? Thanks Queen Bee

    BSA/ABN/TFN Help please

    Was wondering if someone could clear something up for me in simple terms, LOL. I'm having a bit of an argument with someone about it. This other person told me their husband was a painter (they're coming over from NZ) and that he's thinking of setting up shop here. I told her it's a bit...
