You shouldn't need strata approval to swap the toilets out. No common pipes are affected. That also means you don't need any kind of licensed trade to do it. Of course if there's a problem and it causes water damage to other units, just make sure you have your own personal homeowner insurance policy in place in the event the worst case you have to cover the costs of damages to other units.

For me, when it's dry enough to run my lawnmower over it.

Right now, walking through my grass just turns it into mud. I'm still probably a few weeks away from the first spring cut.

I wait until the grass is dry enough to catch in the bag/box. I'd have to sweep it now, but that ends up being back breaking work getting grass into the bins.

I feel bad if my neighbor raked the leaves and I don't causing my leaves to blow all over their lawn. But you left it for a whole season!

I sold my detached and purchased 2 properties...

1 townhouse (4yrs old with a low strata of $244) - 1984sq ft/3 levels
1 2bedroom condo (1yr old but wtf strata $468) - 1400 sq ft/ 1 level


the townhouse after only 4yrs looked so bad once the previous owners moved their shit out...the walls were all marked up...i saw some sort of water stains on alot of the walls ...i got all depressed thinking i gotta live here?

F DAT...so got the entire place PAINTED...never wanted to see those marked up walls ever again plus hey, the smell of fresh paint! total cost $3,600.

SUMMER PROJECT: rip out stairwell carpeting and replace with laminate.

12.3c/sq ft maintenance, damn that's cheap. I've seen as high as 71c, way too much.

Scraped the texture off the ceiling and ripped up the tiles. A lot of the tiles popped right up. If someone here wants them, come get them before they go in the garbage. I think I have some spares too

Some new high rises are getting beyond 70c / sqft.

$ / sqft all in is way too high now.

800,000 for roughly 800 sq/ft on a high rise plus their strata roughly around 400-500 for an 800/sqft. Making that like what roughly 63c?

Took a few days off to crush through a project I've been meaningful to get to before the cooler months, to replace a fixed work bench in the garage from the previous owner and make a fold out work bench so that I can fit two cars in the garage for the winter.

This was my first woodworking project from scratch and I'm pretty proud of how it turned out!

Before:


After demo and clearing out all the spiders and cobwebs:


Folded up:


Folded down:


In action


Some finishing details I'm quite happy with, the radius at the top for the legs, and the cutout in the horizontal support to fit the legs. Oscillating tool came in clutch for this:

Kudos to any of you that complete DIY projects around the house! I'm always scared of screwing up or doing a crappy job.

The paint on the frame around the door leading to my detached garage was flaking off, so over the weekend, I removed the loose parts and sanded most of it before painting. I thought I did a OK job, but my wife disagreed...

Stripped some paint on the outdoor staircase + deck yesteday. The weather was awesome and the work didn't even seem strenous.

But then when I woke up this morning, my whole body felt like I got run over by a truck. I thought I slept well last night, but both me and my muscles were all tired AF when I woke up. The whole body was achey and sore too. Been having a low energy day all day as a result.

WTF...

Awkward posture, using different muscles, age.

More along the theme of maximizing space after the folding work bench, got this cool bike hoist for $20 from Canadian Tire. Now I'm thinking what else I can hoist to the ceiling with this....
