Home is where the heart is, but it's also where the problems are.
Take note of these stores, handymen, and service providers to solve your home woes.
Problem: I know how to fix up my own home but I have no idea where to get tools and supplies.
First, go you! If you want something done right, then DIY, they say.
Head to Zener DIY Store to find all of the equipment you need – think light bulbs, power drills, paint supplies and all-in-one toolboxes.
Problem: I’m not comfortable drinking tap water.
If you’d like drinking water sent straight to your home, try Natural Springs Australia. It offers free doorstep delivery services for its five-gallon ($19) bottles, if you order a minimum of three.
A hot and cold water dispenser is also provided at a one-time refundable deposit of $250.
Drink more than 36 bottles a year, and the company will waive the dispenser rental fee.
Problem: I just moved from a condo to a landed property and I seriously miss my pool time.
One of the best ways to get your pool time back (and perhaps throw a pool party or, you know, 10) is to get Waterland to design and build your very own pool.
If you’re lucky enough to already have a pool, Waterland provides pool maintenance services as well.
Problem: My partner is away and I’m a total IT noob!

Problem: I downsized my apartment and I now have too much stuff. Tips?
