    Garage power

    No, don't think there is an isolation switch anywhere. All other power working fine. Have to bite the bullet and get an electrician. Doh

    Garage power

    Why would the fuse box have an unused circuit breaker, is that common?

    Garage power

    I'll try in the morning. Assume that as long as I turn off the main switch to the right, I'm safe to go? I've got a current tester so will use that on the screws to be sure

    Looks like the one next to it isn't attached. Should I try swappling them over?

    Nothing tripped. Just lost all power to the garage (and the outside plug which feeds off the garage board)

    Garage power

    I have no idea if I am honest. The power went off in the garage to plugs and lights. How would I check this? I assumed that as both have failed, it must be the electricity going into the garage rather than the garage itself

    Garage power

    Thanks, Yes we had the whole lot tested and had the lighting circuit in the entire house rewired 6 years ago. The garage has it's own fuse box. Last weekend, we had rather a lot running off the garage plugs (outdoor heaters, sound system). The power suddenly went off in the garage. Both the...

    Damaged Door Metal Thing

    No, the latch is the standard one. There is no impact as far as I can see. The metal bit that has now snapped off the original and the replacement used to trap the latch in place. Now the door wobbles a lot until you lift the handle up to lock the multi points, but it still doesn't feel that secure

    Damaged Door Metal Thing

    The metal strip that holds the latch in place has broken off twice now. Never had this in 30 years with the old door.

    Damaged Door Metal Thing

    Hi, I have no idea what you would call this bit of metal (strike plate maybe)? It is the bit that the latch goes into. Anyway, it has been replaced twice by the window company. The part must be faulty and now they are refusing to come and replace again. So I guess I will need to buy and fit a...

    Plug socket

    Just had a wall plastered and he has put plaster board on. Done a great job but went to put the plug socket back into the wall and it won't fit. The plug socket is flush to the new wall but the pins/screws are not long enough to go back to screw into the metal back plate. Please tell me what...

    Garage floor angle

    Hi. I am after the cheapest way of making my garage floor usable for a pool table. Currently the garage is part of an old extension. The walls etc are double thick and insulated. However, the floor is the old driveway so has a drop of about the thickness of a brick from left to right. I...

    Best way to do floor of garage/games room

    Thanks. I am aiming to do the job myself and not sure I would fancy screeding. If I put sand first (to level the slope), then DPM, would heavy paving stones sit on that?

    Best way to do floor of garage/games room

    Hi I have decided to turn my garage into a pool/games room. The garage is part on an extension that was built 20 years ago. However, the garage was built over the old driveway and no floor was put in (it is still the tarmac driveway. I am not planning to make this habitable, so not concerned...

    DPM and DPC

    Ground level outside is the same as the garage floor to the front, back and one side. Other side is the external wall of the house, floor is just above the DPC. Think the reason the DPC is so high is that the garage is below the floor level of the house. I can see that ideally the 2 would be...

    DPM and DPC

    Following on from my previous post. How do I attach the DPM to the DPC? DPC is quite high (pic 1). The sketch is what I plan to do. DPM, insulation, then screed but unclear on how to attach the DPM to the wall Does it go to the DPC (if so how do you join them), does it go above the...
