Since I met R we have lived in Milton Street Elwood (flat), Waverley Road in East Malvern (semi detached house), Prosper Parade in Glen Iris (big house), Station Street in Burwood (large unit), Rosamond Street Balaclava (small house), and now here for over fifteen years in St Kilda Road Melbourne (large apartment).
Tradie Brother did a lot of work for us at mates rates in Glen Iris, knocking out walls and making good along with building decking. In Burwood he built us a wonderful timber decking around a fantastic crab apple tree and removed the interior fireplace.
In Balaclava, our exposed brick lounge room chimney had a serious lean. Can you fix that Bro? A badly leaning exposed brick chimney could be a big problem but it seemed to have stabilised its lean. I expect the chimney still has the same lean, but Tradie Brother covered it up with vertical sheets of plasterboard. There were other leaning aspects to our Victorian period house in Balaclava, that could not be so disguised.
