    I think that was the joke.
     
  5. Big orange 'button' saying 'Post new thread'.
    Choose which sub forum is correct though, ie plumbing, building etc.

    LOL! ok, well firstly i hope all are well and safe with whats currently going on.

    I'm currently in the process of building an outhouse under PD; I plan for it to be no more than 2.5m in height, cavity wall with a flat EDPM roof. The outhouse does not makeup more than 50% of garden space and it will be a double block cavity wall. I have been told that this should be fine as it is "built substantially of non combustible material".

    My confusion is that without getting building control involved, would it be the internal space that cannot exceed 30m2 or the actual footprint? I have read a few old post that states its the internal dimensions of the actual floor not external but i have also asked a a friend who advised it is 30m2 external and that he was told this by an inspector that come out onto site :S I also asked a friend of a friend who is an architect who advised it is the external space but from what i have read it is believed to be 30m2 internally.

    I must be a thick too.... I’m new to the forum, and no matter how hard I look, I can’t see a big orange button saying “Post New Thread. Is this because I’m logged in via Facebook? Do I need to request a password and log in directly to be able to post?

    It says it should be there earlier in this post.... But it’s fixed now. I found my way to the Plumbing and Central Heating section and hey presto, there’s a big orange button there.... What a thicko I am....
