    Internal Insulation Wall Treatment

    Hello I was going to put some insulation on my internal wall of my bathroom before I fix the mermaid board to the batons. I was just thinking do I need to seal the wall with PVA glue? Also do I need a plastic sheet between my wall and the insulation to stop moisture getting through? The wall is...

    Minimum Roof Angles 15 - 20 degrees Tiles

    Hello Basically I would like to use those ACME Sandstorm tiles that 1930's homes have, as it's in keeping with character, etc etc on a extension, but I would like to have a pitch between 15 to 20 degrees, not sure yet on exact angle. But I am unsure if planning will allow such a low pitch...

    Law on ownership - Slabs going to tip

    Well I returned them all now. The gardener was a bit confused over the logic, and was saying he has to pay to get rid of them, it's annoying because he seems a nice guy. So I have at least reset the situation. Last time I try and help someone out. I remember now why I don't like people.

    Law on ownership - Slabs going to tip

    I think he is someone who works on principles being the most important thing. Anyway if they got fly tipped down a lane, it's ok because they are still the property of the home owner, from what I gather people are saying. Well it seems that I have already caused conflict, as he came across...

    Law on ownership - Slabs going to tip

    If I didn't ask the gardener they wouldn't be much use as paving slabs unless I wanted crazy paving. On a different thought If this slab bounced of his van in transit to the tip and fell on someone causing them injury. The van driver can't turn around and say it's not my property. I know their...

    Law on ownership - Slabs going to tip

    I don't know if the damage has been done so to speak. But I am very in the mind set just to take them back around tomorrow and allow them to get rid of them.

    Law on ownership - Slabs going to tip

    The gardener was stacking them for me to take away. Otherwise he would just be smashing them up. I am very tempted just to cart them all around and tell the gardener I don't want them any more as they come with trouble.

    Law on ownership - Slabs going to tip

    So I should take them back then? Can he store them on land he doesn't own? That's where they were being stored. On a weird side thought, does that mean I own my rubbish in the back on the bin lorry, all the time the bin lorry is driving around, until the the point it is tipped in to the landfill?

    Roof Truss Design - unusual - Building Control

    I am only asking about this as I need to place a gutter on the slot on the left of the left rafter. Something similar to the drawing I was hoping. Just that I won't go through the wall. But then I don't know if that drawing can be conforming.

    Roof Truss Design - unusual - Building Control

    So there is no other way to do it is what you are saying? No more braces you can add? So in other attached photos, I added a chock bit on the left rafter. But I don't think that will do as it still pushing out on the fascia board. Also included a more braced version. Don't know if that will...

    Roof Truss Design - unusual - Building Control

    Hello In the attached photo is a roof truss I think I need on my garage, that I wish to build. It's of a slight unconventional design it seems. I was just wondering if something like that will be passed by building control? I was also thinking that, would they a support to be added that is...
