Maria and Sam moved from Italy in the 60's and have 5 children! Only one is still at home so there's plenty of space in this huge surburban palace. Walt and Dani get to grips with the size of the house and came up with a few things to make life a little easier! On today's show, our series Sparky Adam joins us to talk about NSW getting Smart Meters and how to harness the new technology. Dani solves the family phone charger disaster with a nifty charging hub, Walt's new home building apprenticeship continues and it's slab pouring day today! Plus, how to stay on top of the Autumn leaves this year.
