    Had 80 people for my 50th - the deck can cope! Now I am just dreaming of a big Aussie get together... (and any Kiwis who want in!)

    oooh this sounds the go!! wouldn't that be fun!!! :wine:grouphug We are in the throes of buying a house so all our time is being spent on driving around looking at places! ugh! starting to 'get over it'! :) Hubby built our last house and I was his apprentice for quite a few jobs, some of which were quite daunting!!! climbing up a ladder that was perched on the veranda (which was a very long up from the ground!!) beams/bearers to hold up the veranda roof sheeting while he screwed it in!! :overreact No doubt we will need to do some DIY stuff in the place we finally buy but I am NOT doing that again!!!!!!! scccaaaaaaryyyy!!!!! :scared

    Karen your deck looks fabulous btw!!!! :tu

    one of these days it'll happen! why does canberra have to be so cold and so hot? when's your happy medium weather KarenW - i think Bart needs a short holiday after this busy weekend as well, Amanda can put him in her carry-on as long as he doesn't bring any liquid from the pond over 100ml's in volume, right?!

    there's DIY and then there's DIY, you guys went too hard i think

    i did the same re: passing up perspex roof sheeting for the pergola when we had a hail storm that made swiss cheese of our old one; we've DIY'd a bathroom (ensuite so small job) revamp & retiled the splashback and reapplianced the kitchen

    I think I might have trouble keeping Bart in the carry on, he tells me he wants his own seat Justine! @bellbird
