Hi, Thank you everyone for your help so far with my maintenance issues!! Just need some advice for a couple of things that need to be fixed in the near future. - Decking: Was quoted $3500 to remove old deck at the rear of the property and to build a complete new treated pine deck. From looking at the old deck, it seems like the overall structure seems alright and I just need to remove and replace the top bits only. I checked Bunnings and treated pine decking starts from $8.24 http://www.bunnings.com.au/90-x-22mm-x-3-6m-micropro-treated-pine-decking_p0053284 . Thinking of doing this myself or if I dont have the time to ask my handyman to do this. Is this hard to do? - Garage: Inspection report outlined that the garage which is separate from the house has reached the end of its service life. The cost of the repairs would not be financially viable. I was thinking that I could buy the Bunnings garage kit such as http://www.bunnings.com.au/garage-single-roll-door-absco-3-75x6-2-7m-w41-zc-zag644127rd_p3425934 My question to this is would I need to obtain Council permission (NSW). The plan shows that there already is a garage in place, so I am thinking I don't have to, unless the neighbor rats me out. - Stairs and handrails: Was quoted $920 to remove and replace the stairs and handrails. Thinking I could do it cheaper by supplying the materials and either doing the work or if I have to ask my handyman to do. http://www.bunnings.com.au/timport-...af-rebated-handrail-per-lineal-metre_p0070670 - Window frames: The glass inself is good but the wooden frames/ architraves is rotten due to age and etc. I have read some articles about products that can restore the window frame back. What would the best thing be for this? In the process also of doing my owner/ builder course online to obtain my own Powerpass card from Bunnings, instead of always getting the card off my friends.
