Plan your move and remove the stress The contracts have been signed and the property you have bought is about to become your new home.

Now you’re ready to move from one home to another and some planning is needed. Moving to a new home is a huge logistical exercise, but with proper planning you can reduce some of the stress involved. The best way of finding a removalist is to check your local newspaper. You also need to notify power, gas and water companies to arrange final readings and

arrange connections at your new property. If you need to organise storage, source quotes and select a company. Moving insurance is a good idea. If using a removalist, ask about the level of coverage that you will receive and the cost. Australia Post can redirect mail from your old address to your new address for a specified period of time. When you receive your redirected mail you will be reminded as to which companies you still need to notify about your address change.

With the computer design technology Drouin Drafting Service has available, building your new house or extension has never been easier. 3D imagery makes it possible for you to see inside or outside from any angle with just a click of a button, in living colour. A true image is developed including all fittings such as power points, light fittings, vanities, taps etc. You can even change the colour, door styles or materials of kitchen cupboards while you watch, put tiles around bench tops or swap kitchen appliances in an instant. Gone are the days where you would receive a pencil floor plan and maybe an elevation for a preliminary, and then be expected to use only your imagination to decide on the design of your new home. Generally we will now provide, in colour, a finished draft floor plan, all elevations, and a 3D internal view of perhaps the kitchen. If you require a Town Planning Submission, full colour printouts of your Commercial

Development and Elevations make for stunning presentations. 35 years of experience, backed with the security of knowing you’re in the hands of a registered Building Practitioner and accredited Energy Rater, make the organisation of construction plans, 6 star Energy Rating, documentation and permits a breeze. A full range of information and services are available for Residential, Commercial or Industrial buildings. We are qualified to undertake bushfire assessments required for residential buildings, additions and outbuildings within six metres of dwellings and for a wild fire overlay area. From tendering to specifications, including soil tests or structural designs where required.

For everyday home security, install a security alarm system monitored by a back- to-base monitoring centre certified in accordance with Australian Standards. Consider installing a CCTV surveillance system in addition to a professionally monitored security system. Ensure you always contact a licenced security professional to install or service an alarm system and that all doors and windows are well secured with locks made to Australian Standards. Always lock up when you go out, even if it’s just for a short period. Lock the front door when you’re in the backyard and use a secondary blocking device on all sliding doors. When you go away, be careful with your personal information online; you wouldn’t put a billboard outside your house advising when you’re away. This information can be posted on open social media sites. Make sure your house looks lived in. Put your mail on hold or have it collected. If you’re taking the car, ask a neighbour to park in your driveway. Don’t leave keys hidden outside the house, leave a set with a trusted friend or family member. Always lock your tools in the shed or garage as these can often be used to break into a property. Also consider installing motion sensor lighting to help deter criminals and alert neighbours or passers-by to their presence. For more information, drop in to 78 Smith Street, Warragul or call the friendly and professional staff on 1300 788 229.

In the TRADE - are you a Builder? Let us be your Agent for your next Building Permit Application From the 1st of September, 2016: ● A builder must not appoint a private building surveyor on behalf of the owner of land on which domestic building work is to be carried out, and ● A private building surveyor must not accept such an appointment. The change makes it a ground for disciplinary action for a builder to appoint a private building surveyor (to issue a building permit and carry out mandatory notification inspections). The change applies in relation to domestic building work only, and does not prevent other practitioners or agents formally acting on behalf of an owner to appoint a private building surveyor.

TRW Developments can act as your agent and work with you, your client and the building surveyor. Let TRW Developments relieve the pressure of organising preliminary documentation and compliance, thus making it easy and straight forward. TRW Developments can make the process of submitting your clients’ building application simple and hassle free or we can tailor a package to include all your stage inspections and follow up on all inspection reports as required, taking the pressure off you and your business.

Insulation acts as a barrier to heat loss and heat gain, particularly in roofs and ceilings, walls and floors. In many homes insulation is the most practical and cost effective way to make a house more energy efficient, keeping it cooler in summer and warmer in winter and saving up to 40 per cent in heating and cooling bills. In addition, insulation may reduce condensation in the home. This can provide health benefits by reducing mould and damp. Why is insulation important? Half of the energy we use to heat or cool our homes can simply leak out without insulation. Insulation helps to: ● reduce reliance on heating and cooling systems ● save money on your energy bills ● improve your comfort at home ● protect the environment and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by lowering your energy consumption. Some types of insulation can make your home more soundproof. Types of insulation There is a range of insulation products available in Australia. When deciding what type of insulation is appropriate for your home you should seek assistance from an appropriately qualified insulation installer or builder. There are two main types of insulation: ● Bulk insulation acts as a barrier to heat flow between your home and the outside, keeping heat out of your home in summer and in your home in winter. It comes in batts, rolls, boards and can be made from materials like glass wool, polyester, natural wool or recycled paper. Bulk insulation is usually used in homes located in cooler climates. ● Reflective insulation is generally used to

keep your home cool in summer by deflecting radiant heat. It's usually shiny aluminium foil laminated onto paper or plastic. Reflective insulation is usually used in homes located in hot and very sunny climates. Some insulation products combine features of both bulk and reflective insulation. What type of insulation is best for you will depend on the climate where you live and whether you need to keep heat in, or out, or both. Your home's design, the material it's made from and its orientation to north are also factors. When to insulate The best time to install insulation is when you're building or renovating. Insulation should be combined with good design including passive heating and cooling so it can do its job properly keeping you comfortable all year round. Many states and territories have minimum energy efficiency standards for new residential buildings and building extensions. Insulating your new home is one way to meet these minimum requirements. Retrofitting insulation is also possible. If you're going to insulate your home at a later stage, the effectiveness and cost will depend on how easy it is to install. For example, it may be more difficult to install insulation in less accessible areas such as existing walls. What to insulate Ceiling insulation is particularly important as the highest proportion of heat transfer occurs through the roof and ceiling, but there are other areas of your home that can be insulated as well. To maximise the efficiency of your insulation, draught-proof your home to reduce heated or cooled air leaking from cracks and gaps around windows and doors.
