Winter is the perfect time to start researching your summer renovation jobs. Head to the library if you’re old school, or get busy on the internet if you have time and data to spare … or better still, hunker down on the couch for endless viewing of home renovation projects.

Balancing your needs and wants is as important as knowing the limit of your DIY skills. You might be a whiz with a spreadsheet, but less capable with a hammer so any project needs a plan that includes how much money you intend to spend and who will do the work. If you need a builder, electrician or plumber, plenty of advance notice will be much appreciated.

PLUMBING

Fixing a leaky tap not that hard

A good plumbing system is worth maintaining, and simple plumbing problems can often be easily handled by the homeowner. So if you are tired of hearing your leaky tap dripping, chances are all it needs is a new washer or cartridge, and it can be a simple repair job. Regulations covering what plumbing the do-it-yourselfer can and cannot do have been eased in the past few years, but it is worth remembering that plumbing is a specialised field and generally pipe work and installing new should be done by a professional. Often the product warranty is void if not done by a registered plumber. There is a huge range of taps, mixers and fittings on the market which make it difficult even for the professionals to keep up. Even the humble tap washer has undergone a revolution, with ceramic washers and many proprietary systems taking over. Leaking taps should be dealt with quickly, as, over time, the tap can be irreparably damaged. Many homes will still have the old-fashioned taps with a rubber washer, which eventually wears out. Others will dry out, get hard and crack or break. Just the wear and tear of turning taps on and off can damage the washer

until it no longer works. When choosing taps for your home it is also a good idea to check if parts can be easily purchased. A replacement part for some taps on the market is often more expensive than the entire tap system itself. And with mixer cartridges there are plenty of different kinds on the market, but you may still find it difficult to find some imported brands. Replacing a tap washer is a fairly simple task and only takes a few minutes, even if you have no plumbing experience. You will first need to turn off the water supply. If you are changing a hot water tap, you may choose to shut off the water at

Indoor taps usually have a cover that needs to be removed, outdoor taps don’t. The cover may be formed by the handle, or the handle may be separate. Depending on the design of the tap, you may also need to remove the handle. There is usually a small screw on the top of the handle, usually under a plastic cap which should lift off, or under a steel cap which unscrews. For cross-handled taps you will also need to remove the cover. The cover should unscrew, anticlockwise, to reveal the inside of the tap. You should be able to unscrew the cover by hand by gripping it tightly and turning, but you may need to use groove joint pump pliers with a rag in the jaws to prevent damage to the cover. The tap mechanism can then be unscrewed from the body with an adjustable wrench. This will reveal the washer, which is held on by a small nut. Replacing the washer is a matter of simply removing the nut and washer and fitting the new one. Make sure everything is free of grit or

dirt, including the body of the tap where the washer will be in contact, before reassembling. When fitting the mechanism back into the body of the tap, ensure the tap is in the open position and operates freely when the tap is tightened together. Then turn the tap off, turn the water back on and check your work. If your tap continues to leak after replacing the washer, it may need reseating. Regular maintenance of taps should prevent the need for this, but if left too long, a leak can wear a channel in the seat of the tap and instead of a simple washer, you will need to reseat it. Reseating resurfaces your tap, so that the washer has a tight seal. The simplest way to do this is to purchase a reseating kit which comes with all of the washers and seals you will need to fully recondition any old tap. While it is apart, replace the O ring, grease it and install a new body washer. It is also a good idea to make sure you have IDs or indicators in place on your taps as a safety precaution. And remember to turn on taps which don’t get used often like the cistern and washing machine taps, to prevent them seizing up.

DIY

Build your own fence Almost anyone can build a wood fence with good planning, some basic carpentry skills and the right tools for the job. The most difficult part may be trying to decide on the style of fence (there are many different types), the type of building materials and possibly some hard work.

It is a good idea to add another 3-5cm of concrete above ground, sloping it away from the posts for water runoff. Be sure to double check and triple check your posts for plumb and alignment. You’ll have about 20 minutes to move your posts after pouring. And wait at least two days before installing the rails and siding so the concrete is cured.

Wood and nails Most fences are made of pressure treated wood and use only rust-resistant hardware such as hot-dipped galvanised or aluminium nails, galvanised bolts, screws, hinges and catches. Your fence will last longer.

Accuracy of design First you need to plot your fence line. Unless you are marking joint boundary lines with your neighbour so as to share the cost, build the fence 3-5cm on your side of the line. This will eliminate possible boundary disputes with neighbours in the future. The best way to mark the line is with the survey you may have obtained when you bought your house. The accuracy of your fence line will determine the straightness of your fence so mark it carefully. Plot a fence line by marking each corner post with a solidly driven stake. Run a tightly drawn string line between the stakes, using the line and

a level to locate sites for all posts. Mark each post spot with a temporary stake.

Digging the holes The next step is digging the post holes. If the posts are not set firmly or deep enough into the ground this may result in your newly built fence tilting, collapsing or heaving in cold weather. The posts must go well below the frost line to stay in place for years to come.

Placing the posts Posts can be set in earth and gravel, but concrete provides the strongest installation. Check out the various concrete

options as some are easier than others. Many people today use a mix that is just right for posts. All you do is pour the mix in the hole, add water and stir. Be sure to plan and time your work carefully, because if concrete seeps under the post it can retain moisture and speed decay. Begin with the corner posts – you’ll need them to plumb and align remaining posts. Plan one and a half bags of concrete mix for a 10cm post set 90 cm deep one bag for 60cm deep posts. Place a large, relatively flat stone in the bottom of the hole, then fill it with gravel (about 15cm), or until it is level with the top of the stone. Continue to plumb and align the post while adding concrete (5-7cm at a time), tamping it in.

Align each fence post so they are exactly vertical and in a straight line. The most common aligning method is the end post or corner post method, though it may be impractical for fences longer than 30 metres. Begin with your two corner posts. Position posts with their faces in flat alignment and plumb them with a level. Next, nail a 5cm-long 1 by 2 spacer block to each post - about 30cm above the ground. Stretch and tie a mason’s line between the posts, making sure the blocks are between the line and the posts. Then tie a second mason’s line at the top of the posts. With lines intact, set and align each post so their faces are exactly the thickness of a 1 by 2 (2cm) away from the lines. Before and after filling each post hole with concrete, check each post for plumb and alignment, using a level on two adjacent faces. Then tack on your desired railings!

STORAGE

Get your garage ready for summer Had a look at your garage lately - or are you too scared to set foot inside that dark place crammed full of all those objects you thought you’d put away just in case you might need them once again in the next 50 years! If it’s the latter you are not alone. Many of us don’t realise what an asset our garages are in terms of storage solutions. So, by de-cluttering and re-organising with these simple tips you can make an ugly area, a haven of tidiness and order! Firstly look through the garage to determine what items should or can be stored together, such as gardening supplies and tools, sports and hobby gear, seasonal items, such as holiday decorations, household tools and hardware, automotive tools and supplies, paints and combustibles and garbage and recycling. For items that you’re getting rid of, sort into three piles: recycle, toss, and donate. After you’ve sorted, clean your garage from top to bottom. This is a great time to remove stains from your concrete floor. It’s also an ideal time to paint. Now it’s time to draw up a plan. Use grid paper and note measurements, windows and doors, and utilities. Also determine how much room you’ll need for your car. Mark zones for storing your things

LE LAB VAI AY A NE OD LY O US T N L O CAL

remembering garden tools work best near the door. Rubbish and recycling should be within easy reach but seasonal items can be stored out of the way. Keep in mind some zones might overlap with overhead storage or shelves. Then select storage options that include bins, boxes, tool hanging systems, bicycle hangers, shelving and support brackets and cabinetry. When it comes to garage ceiling storage,

you have a couple of different choices for what will work best given your specific needs. There are several things to take into consideration depending on which of those choices you make. You can certainly take advantage of an empty ceiling space by adding an overhead garage storage system of your own. This is a great way to store bulky or seasonal items. If you choose to go this route, you can build your own simple storage system or buy a product made specifically for the purpose

of storing items in the overhead space in garages. You might choose a storage system that hangs from the rafters or the ceiling joists, for example. Individual ceiling-mounted units are available in assorted sizes and weight capacities. Most systems have an adjustable height, as the distance between the ceiling and an open garage door varies from one garage to another.
