Home Living : February 24th 2009
HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, Tuesday, February 24, 2009 3 A view to renew » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING It has become apparent that it's more cost-effective to renovate the home and make it comfortable than to go to the expense of moving, House of Cedar owner Bruce James says. ''For a fraction of the cost of moving -- including the outlay for stamp duty, agents' fees, storage and removal fees -- it makes more sense to revamp the home,'' he says. ''Plantation shutters are a popular trend in window furnishings. ''The larger timber venetians, as well as man-made venetians, give a similar look to shutters at a much more cost- effective price.'' The most popular products at the present time are basswood shutters and 63mm-wide basswood and cyba venetians. House of Cedar is a family-owned and -operated business that offers 18 years of expertise in all applications of window furnishings. All the products are made in Sydney and there is also a range of imported products to suit all budgets. Details: Visit www.houseofcedar. com.au or the showroom at Unit 6, 136 Magowar Rd, Girraween. It is open Monday to Friday, 7am to 4pm, and Saturday by appointment. Call 9636 5788. .................................................. Rain in water waste Plan today for tomorrow by installing a rainwater tank. That way, when the rains come, you can make the most of it by capturing run-off from the roof. Rainwater tanks save drinking water and also help protect the environment by reducing stormwater run-off. Water captured in a rainwater tank can be used for watering gardens, washing cars and for filling swimming pools, spas and ornamental ponds. A licensed plumber can also connect a tank to the internal plumbing system so rainwater can be used to flush toilets and for washing machines. Sydney Water offers customers a rebate on rainwater tanks with a capacity of 2000 litres or more. Depending on the size of the tank, when it was installed and whether it has been connected to toilets or a washing machine, homeowners may be eligible to claim up to $1500. As part of Sydney Water's Love Your Garden service, a qualified horticulturalist can give advice about suitable rainwater tanks for the home. The service costs from $33. To register for a service, call 1300 307 130.
