    Replace BG Up2 + Wr1 with Nest 3rd Gen

    Literally have the same set up this end, the junction box they are box connected to seems a bit of a dogs breakfast!

    Bathroom fitting…when to comment?!

    So bit of an update, called him round the other day to discuss, says the tiles were far too different to match up, and he used spacers, having popped him after he had gone one of the nights he was doing it, he seemed to have some of the small white crossed, and others that looked more like bits...

    Thanks yeh, the grout lines don’t match already, any wonder one side gets gradually higher than the other?!

    Bathroom fitting…when to comment?!

    I ordered the items (which having seen the room and the room plan, I shared the order with him) , and explained the layout, but he ultimately decided things like the overhang and the gap between units. I was at work, but my partner was at home and he didn’t discuss with her. The impression, is...

    Bathroom fitting…when to comment?!

    There may be a small difference, but tiles are from the same manufacturer (same range) with the same dimensions on the box (so there may be some tolerance difference) To be fair he was was recommended by several people in my village. On FB!

    Bathroom fitting…when to comment?!

    So he has apparently finished, and a number of things I expected him to sort appear to have been left…. Really not sure inviting him back to resolve is the best solution now. *top of tiling on wall above the bath. Big gap… left open… needs filling as a minimum, but surely he should have adjust...

    Bathroom fitting…when to comment?!

    Hi, just getting a bathroom fitted and apparently the guy will finish tomorrow, but had a quick look round and a few issues making me a little concerned. And don’t want to jump to conclusions as I know many things are sorted when they get tweaked at the end, but: *there is a cut in one of the...

    Home Office over Detached Garage

    Today its in full use, was lucky to get some low height drawers and cupboards which work well with the knee boards and an oil filled radiator. Used it once a week and then lockdown hit, so it was in full time, been very impressed with it, even the other year when it was -10c the temperature...

    Home Office over Detached Garage

    Now the fun started with the plastering. Having never done this before it was a steep (and messy) learning curve. It was all butt joints, and no tapered boards! Then there was a lot of debate over the stairs and how to fit a door. Ended up using this neat door arrangement with a pneumatic piston...

    Home Office over Detached Garage

    Next up came the insultation, I used 100m Celotex, with 130mm rafters this allowed 30mm airflow under the tiles, think modern standards are a little thicker, but when the rest of the house was built 100mm was the regs! The end walls simply had rockwool. Next up was the plasterboard, the sides...

    Home Office over Detached Garage

    Realised I'd not posted a thread on this. Completed it back in 2018, thinking I would use occasionally, but was a god send during the working from home in the pandemic, and still very pleased with it. Cost was under £1k IIRC. Essentially I moved into a house with a detached double garage, with...

    NEFF oven screw holes corroded

    So just done my annual oven clean on a NEFF U12M42N0GB, this time I decided to remove the plate that covers the fan and element at the back too. I noted there were only 3 screws (instead of 4) and one was fairly lose, but didn’t think anything of it. Anyway, went to put the plate back on and...

    British Gas 330+ pulsing noise

    Just a follow up on this, thanks for the useful... and less than useful/sarcy comments. Used some descaler in the system which I thought had worked, unfortunately it came back the other day. I found a couple of other threads on other sites for people with similar issues (they described it as a...

    British Gas 330+ pulsing noise

    Hi, got a British Gas 330+ and it’s starting to make a ‘pulsing Noise’ no way to really describe it (doesn’t match any of the videos or descriptions I’ve seen), I’ve got a short video here, wondering if this is a simple radiator adjustment or need to get a corgi engineer round?! it’s a hard...

    Bosch dishwasher, resetting itself and delays

    So more bizarreness, the E01 disappeared and then I got an E24 code. Turning on it got the rinse aid and Salt lights flashing thenE24. Then the e24 code disappeared and I’ve just got the flashing lights!

    Bosch dishwasher, resetting itself and delays

    Hi, I have a Bosch dishwasher playing up. it gradually was doing rubbish cleans, but also the wash time was getting very slow (3hr wash would take 4 hours and seemed to pause mid wash). Reading up so I cleaned the matrix which was gunked up. Didn’t solve the problem and now had washes that reset...
