    Full fill cavity wall with PIR

    I'm going to be getting major refurbishment done at my house that hasn't been touched for 40 years or so. I'll be removing a few external walls and extending them out, but in doing so the solid wall will become cavity walls. I assume I can't leave the cavity completely empty? So if that's the...

    Shelving racks - heavy duty, high quality and really sturdy?

    If you have a Costco near you they sometimes have some really sturdy shelving unit. I think it's around £100 for a stainless steel 5 (or 6) shelf.

    Complete house rewire, what to expect? What to do?

    I think this is a case by case scenario tbh. The Nvidia Shield TV, which is my main media consumption device, has a gigabit ethernet port as do my gaming PC and my PS4. Even though I never use my TV smart features it has a ethernet port on that as well. In my old house I used to use a USB C hub...

    Complete house rewire, what to expect? What to do?

    I'll see who my builder recommends, but I would rather go elsewhere. I'll probably use NextDoor to get a recommendation, I got a great gas engineer from there I've got a solid wall property and my heating barely works at the moment so I'm whacking insulation everywhere I can as well just to...

    Complete house rewire, what to expect? What to do?

    Cheers for the reply. I won't be living at the property while the work is being done, it's so extensive that there is no possible way I could live there. The bits of furniture that I can't take with me will be put in storage for two months or so while the main bit of the work is being done...

    Creating wooden frame for outside concrete bar top

    Could I put a piece of timber between all legs, (A & B as in the below picture) and just screw them in from the sides? Or would a mortice joist be the best method? Yeah I'm not looking forward to turning it over, but I'll have help from a few mates. I'll also be using melamine boards like...

    Creating wooden frame for outside concrete bar top

    Hi all, I was watching this YouTube video recently and he managed to sell me on the idea to make my own concrete worktop for a bar area in the garden. I am a complete novice at woodworking so it'll be one hell of a learning process. I'm planning to make a top that is 160 x 80 x 5cm, this...
