    Sorry, the situation continues. Extractor fan is accessible from wiring in loft. The pump is accessible from bedroom next door. I guess the question is what defines a circuit really!

    Part P - Special Location

    I think you missed the point, I wasn’t asking for your opinion on builders V electricians, I was asking for confirmation or otherwise that the law is as described.

    Part P - Special Location

    Hi all, You are always the font of all knowledge, so thank you in advance. We have a non "competent person" registered builder installing an en suite. I mean non-competent person as in not registered under the scheme, but I have full confidence in his competency though. If that makes sense...

    Loft insulation

    Hi everyone, A really simple question I think. We're in the standard situation - we have no loft insulation but want storage space. I know that PIR boards are expensive but I seem to get the same or better U values with 50/100mm boards. Can I just cut and place these on top of the...

    Simple advice

    Hi everyone, I have absolutely no colour awareness of "what goes" in terms of colours etc! My whole flat, including lounge, is magnolia. My sofas are a yellowy colour - I want a feature wall (the old chimney breast) to break it up a bit. What colours would go? I was thinking something...

    Running another socket from a junction box.

    Crikey I'm glad I posted this - I was just gonna crack on and do it this evening. The most amusing part (for me) is the method I described above was what 2 electricians said they were going to do when they quoted today; this doesn't really leave me with much reassurance ! OK so the...
