Previous to this the plumber who was fitting a radiator had run the pipes from upstairs down into extension and arranged to come back once it was plastered to finish the job. When he returned and turned on the water,it poured down two...

    Fitting a dimmer switch thats not on lighting circuit

    I have just had my extension wired up but it turns out the light switch has been wired onto same circuit as lower wall sockets. The light switch plate has a 3 amp fuse incorporated. I quickly spoke to the guy who was a subcontractor but he said he wasnt instructed to fit a dimmer switch and had...

    Who is responsible for identifying slanted wall ??

    Chesspy I dont doubt its not unusual for a 4" step but my architects plans were for a totally flush adjoining wall so in this instance it is definitely an error.

    Who is responsible for identifying slanted wall ??

    Chessky I will need to get a photo of finished wall but surely you can already see by the pics that the bricks are going in different directions and were never going to be flush.

    Who is responsible for identifying slanted wall ??

    Hiya, these are the pics i took....If you look at photo 1 you will get the idea of where its heading,upwards and outwards. If you check picture 2 you can see a few feet up where the frame gets closer to wall. They obviously have to leave a fire stop cavity and as you can see this means the...

    Who is responsible for identifying slanted wall ??

    I understand what you are saying but at the end of the day I am left with a building that isnt exactly what was agreed. It was also supposed to be completed first week in March. It is only a two week job not a major project therefore 12 weeks out is quite a delay. This was mainly due to...

    Who is responsible for identifying slanted wall ??

    Hi , The extension is actually very well built and looks great but it is sitting 6 inch proud of existing wall at topmost point. I am happy to live with it now that building control have advised they will pass it providing these drawings are amended to show ties as detailed above. There is the...

    Who is responsible for identifying slanted wall ??

    I wish it was a wind up but unfortunately its true. The brickie didnt start flush will the wall either which made it look more prononuced the higher he went up.

    Who is responsible for identifying slanted wall ??

    I totally agree it should have been spotted quite quickly. It was actually me that noticed it as soon as the joiner had built the frame despite the fact there had been joiners and builders there all day. I noticed that at the bottom it looked fine but that about 6 feet up the frame was coming...
