Col's Construction Blog

Hello! Welcome to my blog. My name is Col. I live in Perth and I have a passion for construction. I am pretty useless when it comes to construction work so I tend to leave it to the experts. However, I find that there is nothing more pleasing than seeing a team of construction workers complete a job. Over the years, I have hired many different types of construction worker and they have all taken the time to chat with me. During these conversations, I have learnt so pretty interesting things which I will be exploring on this blog. Enjoy!

A laundry not only houses these but all the accoutrements that go along with cleaning and ironing clothes. This translates into washing baskets, detergents and ironing boards. If you're remodelling your bathroom to include laundry elements, you need to find a way to stop them taking over so that your bathroom looks spa-like rather than coin laundry-like.
