    Decking advice

    You have 3 joists that don't have any post supports just noggins on. Personally I would drop a couple of post supports on these to minimise any slight bounce you get on the decking as there over a 3m span. Up to you if you concrete ones in or rest on a slab . As for the steps depending on your...

    Insulating kitchen ceiling

    You could notch the joists and put small timber baton's across. You can get straps that go on the inside of each joist to hold it in place . If you have enough height it might be worth putting sound breaker bars in depending on what noise your trying to reduce

    Yes if it's android . You can go into settings and security and remove the password by setting security back to none. If you have a windows version the same is also possible.

    Top up boiler pressure?

    Had a quick look and the prv release pipe is dry, took me a sec to find it though as it wasn't at the back of the boiler but was at floor level on the left of boiler outside. So I think this is the faulty valve, what's the screw for? Guess it's a case of fully draining system changing valve...

    Top up boiler pressure?

    Sadly tapping didn't work. I tapped a few times then opened iso valve hear a rush of water then after a few seconds just went quiet and pressure never went up. So either it's the check valve or I guess I could have a faulty pressure gauge?

    Rafter support

    Thanks for replies, yes I plan to remove the whole of the chimney if possible to solve that problem but just leave diagonal bricks in place that come out of the external brick wall (behold the ones you can see) in regards to the purlin's resting on what I would class as a brick pier to the left...

    Top up boiler pressure?

    Thanks for reply. Will try the tapping method in the morning. I guess I can just unscrew from check valve to check the iso valve is working...over a bucket of course. Yeah not exactly the most sound of installs is it. Thin will end up boxing this mess in till we can afford a new one

    Attaching featheredge boards infront of existing posts?

    there should be holes in the slotted posts so you can affix a timber baton either side and bolt through then fix you rails 2 this is your best option for a seamless look (on your side) those posts will be really hard to drill so id avoid that. other option is to drop posts inbetween the others...
