    Internal stone walls

    @tell80 The plasterboard was a temporary fix to get the Mrs off my back after I opened the ceiling up to see what was going on up there. The roof is coming off in a couple of months and the parapet gutters (which are completely shot) are getting replaced. Yes, the external walls are also going...

    Internal stone walls

    @JohnD That could be. There are quite a few bits of wood scattered through the walls. I just assumed it was later additions that was done when the house was split into two properties by the council in the 60s. They are also pretty randomly scattered.

    Internal stone walls

    It does seem to pretty shot in most places, and is coming off on large chunks. If it were solid I'd happily skim over it, but it does seem like most of it will come off. It's also throwing up some surprises like random concrete, in places, lots of holes, and a few bits of newish plaster.

    Eufy doorbell camera to replace old doorb

    Hi RG, The model number is T8200311 I think. It does include bridging wires, but I tested the voltage (16v) and decided to go ahead and wire it as it is. It seems to be working ok and the old bell doesn't seem to be ringing when the doorbell is pushed. Thanks for looking into it.

    Eufy doorbell camera to replace old doorb

    Hi all, I hope someone can help me with this. I am trying to replace an old doorbell in a house with wiring that has not been touched in a while. The instructions from Eufy are fairly straight forward for replacing modern doorbells, but mine is a bit of a mishmash as can be seen from the...
