    Skirting - What type of nail gun - hire or buy?

    For the architrave - glue and fine pins or pre drill the architrave because you would be fixing near to the edge chance of it splitting. The architrave is only set back 5-10mm so you should have timber to fix to. Yep makes it easier priming it first before fixing it, prime it both sides...

    C24 Timber Shakes

It's for my workshop and so not overly worried about the shakes and imperfections as they dont go all the way through. I just wanted other chippies opinions, is this typical of...

    Extension pitched roof
