Bet on a Bond Loan

bond-loan-brisbane

I’ve worked as a Mill Park Locksmith since finishing university. It’s not work I expected to get into but I’m really good with locks and getting into things and it’s actually pretty exciting work. I started off as an intern and now I know a good bet when I see one and nine out of ten short term loans are an absolute scam. Bond loans are one exception, at least with reputable companies like Bond Loans QLD.

I moved into a place a few months ago and I like to keep as liquid as possible. For me I know the rates and terms are reasonable and having someone else’s money sitting as bond has just been great. The support is great, a bond loan Brisbane wide is a great idea and Bond Loans QLD had the best of them.

Dress up your dull exterior with a green wall

Green-wall

I work as an architect for a big firm in the city and I love it. Right now we’re designing a series of new, small apartments built around a nice courtyard, and it’s one of the more interesting projects I’ve worked on.

As with a lot of apartment projects, space is a bit of an issue and we’re working on making the courtyard as green and lush as possible without taking up too much space. I did a bit of research and found O2 Plant Walls, and I haven’t looked back since. These guys specialise in designing and installing green walls.

Never heard of a green wall? Neither had I. It’s a vertical garden that is placed on an existing wall and can host any variety of plants, flowers, and even herbs. It leaves plenty of space on the horizontal area of the courtyard for tables, seats and benches but still allows a lush garden space for aesthetic and practical purposes.

The team at O2 are very professional, and I can see our firm engaging their services a lot more in the near future. They do small scale residential work as well, so if you’re looking for something similar at your home then you should definitely give them a call.

Find a Removalist in Melbourne

Finding a removalist in Melbourne is actually pretty easy. There’s quite a few companies out there we’ve used over the years and plenty of them are good enough. There’s none I’d really rave about with the exception of Melbourne Cheap Removals.

I was having a killer day last week when we needed to move my mum into her new apartment. It’s this really lovely building and it’s all retirees basically and while there is a lift, it’s not massive. Mum has a lot of beautiful old furniture her and dad had collected over the years. It’s stuff she is obviously very fond of and in fact we all are. The whole experience was very emotional for her and stressful for me but Melbourne Cheap Removals were really supportive and compassionate as well as doing a fantastic job. They are a great removalist Melbourne.

Why Curtains and Blinds matter

When furnishing a home the initial focus is usually on finding the right table and couches, the best wall colour paint, where to place the dining room table and chairs and how to make a study space functional.  Curtains and blinds are often overlooked even before mirror placement, but here’s why you should get on to them sooner rather than later.

Curtains and blinds matter when it comes to colour and texture coordination and the overall feel of an apartment. Don’t just assume that you will find window coverage that fits in with what you have already styled because when you start looking you’ll see that you have a definite preference for shade and privacy, aesthetic, and material and it might just clash with everything else.

My advice is to get advice here http://www.indesignblinds.com.au/ before you have to move the table and repaint the walls.

Great Gates In Melbourne

I remember that iconic scene in The Castle when the Kerrigan boys steal the gates from the Toorak mansion with a tow truck and drag it all the way back to their place by the airport. They boast about their ‘pretty good gate,’ later in the film and it’s all pretty hilarious but it’s exactly what I had in mind when we we’re building our place.

Custom Builders, Beautiful Homes

With so many great builders and developers going the way of display homes, it’s getting harder to find specialist custom builders. I like the idea of making homes more affordable to build and own, of streamlining the process working from existing plans and designs. It’s a very efficient way of doing things, which is a lot of the reason why it has become so popular.
