Homes On Show - Save My Bathroom

Behind every job there is a story. This one starts with a homeowner, and a vision to renovate her bathroom from an outdated 1970’s relic to a modern, clean, and functional bathroom. The Dilemma The story starts with Joanne and her first tradie, a referral from a friend. The tradie seemed great. The homeowner and the tradie agreed that Joanne would buy everything that was needed for the bathroom, and the tradie gave her a cost to install and renovate to her plan. Fast forward three months and the tradie was nowhere to be seen and uncontactable. With the goods for her bathroom waiting in Mitre 10 and a loan taken out for the project, Joanne was desperate to get the job underway. The Solution “I spoke to someone at work, saying I didn’t know what to do. I needed to have my bathroom renovated, and my colleague said, have you put it on Builderscrack? Then they showed me how Builderscrack works, how to log on and use the site. I put the advert on the next day, and within two

Repair of lock on stationary housebus

Posted 4 years ago

Good morning, I live in Murupara, just outside Rotorua. I live in a stationary house bus. There's a problem with either the door or the lock, I'm not sure which. Basically if you shut the door from the outside, it can't be opened again. This means I can't secure my home when I go out as I have to leave the door open, otherwise I won't be able to get back inside! I'm pretty sure it's the lock or the door handle but not being a locksmith myself I can't say that for sure. I need someone to go...
