I attended a lunchtime session on Friday to find out what exactly has been going on with the OSH Harmonisation since I last looked. Well here in WA (The Wait Awhile state) nothing has happened. “No! how on earth can that be”? I hear you asking. It was all meant to be done and dusted by 01st January 2012. Not so – the saga is continuing.
When the raw ready mix begins pouring down on his bare feet in a warm white flow of gravel clumps and wet sandy lumps, the now frightened bird flies away to safety. The naked man however, has no where to go. He’s about to become a permanent fixture of this new construction.

The city will likely require a permit for a tear down and there may be other ordinances that apply. In really old areas, you may be bound by aspects of historical preservation. Also, you can’t just turn off and rip out gas, water, and electrical lines.

One note on the cost of asbestos removal for you to think about, with the price in mind is it too much compared to the value of your health? Put in that perspective it is not too expensive.
What to do? How about buy the lot, tear the house down, build your own version of that dream house packed with amenities, and live happily ever after? “Tear downs” are much more common than buyers realize, and will become more common as the aging Baby Boomer population begins to put their homes on the market. If negotiated properly, a tear down can be cost effective and a great home buying option.
When it comes to owning a beautiful home, every last detail counts. A topnotch home won’t just look great – it will be safe, warm and inviting, too.

In the end, having a topnotch roof and quality outdoor lighting can be a truly winning combination.
