Get­ting around the rules

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Patioscapi­ng Ideas -

The key to this trans­for­ma­tion is com­ply­ing with the rules and reg­u­la­tions of the build­ing’s man­age­ment. This of­ten means you can’t paint walls or ceil­ings a dif­fer­ent colour, you can’t change the build­ing’s fa­cade and you can’t fix any­thing per­ma­nently to walls, floors and ceil­ings. On bal­conies, es­pe­cially, you can’t put in any­thing that can be climbed up or can com­pro­mise the in­tegrity of the build­ing (such as an ir­ri­ga­tion sys­tem or very heavy ob­jects). Here, ev­ery­thing can be packed up and taken with you when you go.
