Hello! My name is C.J., and as you may have guessed from the title of my blog, I am a huge dog lover. My dog has specialised things in my home like a built-in shelf for his food and water bowls and a dedicated grooming area with a bath. Outside, he has his own shady area, a dog house with a heated floor and a sturdy fence. I worked with contractors through all of those projects, and I hope to do even more. This blog is going to talk about contracting... I hope to start with some posts about the process involved in some of the things the contractor made for my pup but I also plan to include some posts with a more general contracting focus. Take a look and enjoy!

However, wood heaters have been slowly disappearing over the last 30 years due to concerns about their efficiency and effect on the environment. Parts of Australia have been offering subsidies for those considering switching to gas, and the ACT Government has gone one step further by banning their installation outright in certain new developments.

If you are hiring a skip for a special project, you should try to keep the skip in the shade. Having a shady area to place your skip benefits you in a number of ways. Here's a look at just some of the benefits: 1. Shade slows down the rotting of food, reducing odours. When rubbish smells, it's typically because it's full of food that is rotting.
