Dammit a little too public for this body....
The surface of the water is pretty much same same .
Its just as it gets deeper.....colder
We gave up taking recyclables to Jindy as it always seemed full.
Curiosity Rocks ?
Sounds like Japan where everything is individually wrapped inside at least one other wrapper.
Isnt that closer too inlets?
Didn’t they get in trouble a while ago?
I have several compost heaps. And as of today a duck. And the roos, my dog and various other creatures to feed. No need for FOGO.
You can cast a wider net than just Jindy or even Cooma, we recently had a gutter guard guy come down from Queanbeyan, when we were building A/C / Plumbing / Electrical / Roofing / Kitchens / WIndows / Carpets were all out of Sydney. They all seemed happy to drive down on a Sunday and drive home on a Friday.
We always compared quotes with locals. It was generally cheaper from Syd, even with travel and accom. I think most of the local trades are just way too busy.
The cow poo and black soil bottom adds a tepid warmth.
Tried the phone - went to message: on a Christmas break returning 19th Jan. Note to self: Ring next week!
Might take you up on your offer if things don't go as planned with the shed companies??? Thx.
Yep, plan B definitely. I currently make money out of tradies coming to my city for similar reasons (solar installs, sheds, shopfits etc).
Another decent property hitting market:
Group buy in?
Pretty sure no one on this forum can afford that!
Haha, WTF does a 110ac property have cattle yards.
Aren't they for brumbies?
For the photos for city-based relatives. Gotta look the part!
Its currently holding 15 cows no worries! You'll be rich!
15 grade 5 Wagu.....?
Thunderbolts and lightning....
Dat feed bill
We got our aircon in Canberra installed by a company from Nowra. Significantly cheaper and quicker.
That's directly across the road from my friends place. Lovely spot.
Summer storm over the lake, love living here
Last night's light show was lovely with a little rain thrown in.
The happy Summer crowds are starting to drift away.
Good, I can come back.
Snowy Sheds: OK, so I ring and get a message they are on holidays, so I send an email as a sales lead in case I forget to call straight away. email address is rejected!!!!! (Yes, I did check spelling numerous times). Makin it hard.
Looking elsewhere now . . . . . . .
Its not called the Summer siesta for nothing.
Try on the coast, like... https://www.shedsnhomes.com.au/local/batemans-bay/
Ta. Already started looking at Bega and surrounds (Bega Sheds & Garages aka Wide Span) . Batemans Bay is good. Will start the hunt.
Just my two cents from a friend that lives in a shed on a high perch.
They were steered away from coastal shed people...As they didn't understand the unique (wind) enviroments.
@Jacko4650 - we've had a place at Eucumbene since forever. Usually much easier to get trades to a) answer and b) do a job if out of Cooma, Berridale or beyond eg glaziers - three in Jindy, none returned multiple calls. Shop in Cooma, answered, sure, yep, this much, we have a job in Adaminaby Thursday will swing by on the way through (it's 45 mins to an hour out of the way), done and solved.
Like trades in lots of areas they will be working for and with usual clients and other trades and making sure the regular work gets done and sorted as it's the bread and butter. Random add-ons who may never order/repeat business/etc don't get much of a look-in.
Yep, hearing you and as you probably know, I've experienced quite a few blows over the years up in them there hills. Thx for the reminder.
They're at 1180m asl and face the MR.
Their shed is not a good place to be in a blow
Sad state amongst the tradies everywhere it seems - same in my city, hence why we get so many tradies from out of town staying with us.
Technology is quite amazing these days (answering machine, messaging, AI Bots, decent websites etc) and could drive business if they wanted, but the transition from Good Tradie/Hard Worker to Good business operator is a leap too far for many tradies. Our accountants tell me that most tradies STILL wander in each year at the last minute with a box full of receipts saying "Time for you to do my tax!", whilst giving different quotes for "Cash" earlier that day.
How long before the Tax Office gets access to phone GPS records to identify timeline gaps in billings? Hmmm, old mate worked on a property at xyz for 2 days but hasn't been paid a cent, Hmmm.
Not sure if Apprenticeships include any classroom subjects on business processes? There is absolutely no point paying for any marketing, including advertising, if you don't answer the phone or respond to emails. Money down the drain. Customers are not trained to call when you are quiet and looking for revenue!
I think they get lots of queries that don't translate to work and so stick with working with the people they know. All fine until you need mor ework I guess.
Nobody got my reference above....
My spot will have a small amount of protection in the lee of the really nasty winds coming off the range, but I still think about the winds all the time. I am yet to refine a shed design, but my concept has the wind in mind for sure. I think my site is 1120m ASL (tbc).
Yes, but at the same time some tradies think that if you are busy, just add 100%, rather than map out a good schedule at perhaps a 30% premium when the market is strong. Hot, cold.
Nothing happens over the phone down here. Business is done in person when you happen to run into someone. Things happen face to face, phone and email get put off.
What @climberman said, talk to someone in Cooma. It's big enough to require business be done over the phone.
Any one know how to capture a bat??
My parents have one stuck in their lounge room!
Turn the lights on and leave the door open.
Thats what the did!
Too funny, I could hear the commotion downstairs and was really confused. Then mum called and told me!
It's not like Snowy Sheds are short of work. They have a very good rep and a staged and full book. They don't run multiple crews, just a solid crew keeping busy.
Your shed will be designed and installed to the correct wind and snow loading for the area.
Give them a call when they are back from holidays or drop by when they are open and they will pretty much design your shed and quote right there.
Sounds like Japan. lol. The differences are less than people think.
I thought this might be a good time to introduce these guys who are planning on opening a new cafe in Jindabyne next to the new kfc
