    Move telephone line

    Hi Simonpolly I have done as you suggested and contacted Openreach - i.e. after holding on the phone for over 1/2 hour I then resorted to emailing them, where I was informed that a reply would not be expected within 5 days and may well take much longer !! Since then, having just read an item...

    Move telephone line

    I live in a bungalow where the telephone line runs from a post in the road across the front garden to a chimney which provides support (with a short length of wire wrapped around the cable) and then from there a short run across the roof and behind the gutter - then down the wall to a small...

    Rerouting electric supply cabling

    Thank you for those replies; it's certainly given me something to think about. The bungalow was being used as a dental surgery and there are 2 consumer units in a position that will be in the middle of the property when the extension is built. I have identified where most of the feeds go and...

    Rerouting electric supply cabling

    I will agree that I had raised a previous entry; however I did feel that was fundamentally about how to deal with the relevant DNO, whereas I felt that this aspect is somewhat different as it relates to how to achieve the supply from the point at which their responsibility ceases. [This was...

    Rerouting electric supply cabling

    Having finally got a response from NorthernPowerGrid regarding the cabling supplying electricity to my bungalow and that next door, it has been proposed that my neighbour will now get his own individual supply and my cable will be rerouted to facilitate the building of an extension to my...

    Electrical Mains Supply to Adjacent Properties

    Having used the detail provided early in my posting, I have ascertained that my DNO is Northern Powergrid. Although I have not yet made contact with them, I am horrified to see that the average cost of this work is likely to be in the order of one grand ! Further considerations have revealed...

    Electrical Mains Supply to Adjacent Properties

    At the front of the bungalow that I purchased a few years ago there is a high pole which is the source of electrical supply to a number of properties in the road. Three power cables run to several adjacent houses and are of no problem to me. However the supply to my bungalow and two other...

    Replacement roof

    The roof on my bungalow has certainly seen better days and I plan to have it retiled. [Note:- I have already created good access to the loft] It's shape is basically a pyramid with a rear extension in one corner (this area will become a utility room and toilet). The wooden structure itself is...

    Dual purpose Water Heater

    Certainly not a wind up. As I already have a 'young' boiler I have no wish to replace it but was hoping to achieve a minor increase (at selected times) in heating output to cater for the conservatory.

    Dual purpose Water Heater

    I am drawing up plans to modify my bungalow and intend to move the existing boiler to a new location and use it to provide the central heating, plus hot water for the bathroom requirements. My aim is to install a water heater for the kitchen, independent of the central heating system. However...

    Conservatory Roof

    If I have a tiled roof, can it still be classified as a conservatory by the planning officer ? Alternatively, could it be classified as an orangery ?

    Conservatory Roof

    I plan to upgrade and extend my bungalow this year and this will include a new conservatory. Since this will be south facing I am rather concerned about the heat generated in there (and also restricting the heat loss at other times !). Currently the bungalow roof is of a 'pyramid' shape but...
