  1. I read on here that gas engineers can be found with experience of converting some small parts on range cookers and certifying. I dont know the details of it and the post on here didnt share them, but it appears possible to do it. I'll find the post later. Yes it can be done but oh boy it's expensive if you can actually find anyone who will touch it. While in NSW our caravan gas appliances were fine but once we moved to QLD they all had to be adapted and certified and all I can say is never again. We took our brand new, still in box Webber b b q to our local gas supplier and they told us to throw it away. They wouldn't even look at it because it didn't have an Aussie certification sticker on it. We asked them if they knew anyone who could do it and they just said 'no, don't bother'
  2. Do not bring any gas appliances. Or gas b b q , gas fitters here won’t touch them.

    Photos from your garden

    Yes understood @Bobj but for me the connection is my mum and grandma who always had these in the garden when we were growing up in England.

    Queensland fires

    We are quite a way away from the fires. We had our own bushfire licking at our boundary fence a few months ago and I can tell you it is very frightening when it comes.

    Mini wall is almost finished but we need to hire a stone cutter to finish off the coping stones on the top. We are waiting for a clear weekend to do it all at once.

    Swimming pool

    Thanks @Tootsie A bit more accomplished The deck is made from Trex composite decking. No need for treating or any maintenance really except for mopping it now and again. Very expensive but has a 25 yrs guarantee and is easy to cut and handle, although it was very heavy.

    Yes @Toots it will be so nice to think it’s all finished and we can relax. Still lots to do but we can see the end in sight now. Meanwhile, the sky is a lovely blue today

    So, after what seems like a very long time work has started again on the pool area (-: The frame work work for the decking is down. The supports for the gazebo are in (after much hard work) and the beginning of the retaining wall are coming along nicely.

    Partner Visa Onshore - Not in Aus yet

    Barry, I would not even try to give you any advice regarding your visa application, having seen your hostile replies to the wise, well meaning people on this forum. Furthermore, if I was an agent (which I am not) I wouldn’t touch you with a barge pole. Good luck in getting your Russian pen friend into Oz, you may need it.
