    Garage door fit before plasterboard ceiling

    the tracks are only held up by a couple of "L" brackets, the door can be fitted then when plasterboarding is done the tracks can be propped up with wood and the "L" brackets removed and then reinstated after the plasterboarding is completed
  2. i agree with every one else, the pitches for the roof have to match i would also be making it as high as possible leaving maybe a 100-150mm gap between, the angle of the roof will have no bearing on the floor space

    ASHP it is then . . .

    looks like you (your installer) need to follow the MCS planning standards, which basically does the noise calculation to decide if its permitted development or not MCS planning standards can be found here https://www.microgenerationcertification.org/images/MCS_020_Planning_Standards_Issue_1.2.pdf i am currently waiting for quotes to install an ASHP to a property that i am refurbishing although no measurements were taken of how far away the neighbours are but there is an extension and a nissen hut between my ASHP location and the neighbours
  7. just to add to this topic, quite a lot of guys local to me use mapress fittings for copper/ stainless and generally speaking hep2o is used elsewhere. I’ve used hep2o and never had any failures.

    Hormann garage doors - fitting question

    generally they are fitted directly to the structure page 39 of this technical guidance show fitting options dependant on what size of door/ track system you have ordered https://www.garagedoorsonline.co.uk/download/Hormann Sectional Technical Manual.pdf if you batten/plasterboard/skim then fit your door you will have plasterboard in contact with the render or you will have to board the "ingo" with cement board etc before plastering, do you have a drawing of the make up of the exterior walls?

    is it a sectional door or a roller shutter?

    Fan assisted radiators

    ok i am not sure what make he is proposing, i have had a look at the dimplex ones and they look quite nice also found the mitsubishi ones and they just look like storage heaters 🙄
  11. so i am getting quotes for installing an ASHP in my house and one company has suggested that due to layout i would be best to go for fan assisted radiators, does anyone have any experience of these as i can only find a small amount of info about them, i am not sure on the exact make/ model he is proposing as i have not had the quote through yet.
  12. looks good but i would be tempted to square the bedroom doors to the mezzanine not the bedrooms, might even give you enough room on the inside of the master bed door for light switches without going around the corner, certainly for bed 3 it will give more room inside and you could always move that door to in line with the WIW wall

    Hello from shetland

    hi guys thanks for the welcome, so far plans are to strip out insulate and re plasterboard, removing the storage heaters, finish the rewire that the previous owner started including ditching E7 and the pre pay meter, its a right bodge of different bits added here there and everywhere, iv counted 5 consumer units of various ages. Probably replumb the whole thing as well as adding radiators for the ASHP and a "megaflo" i am fairly confident that i can get the RHI payments as my EPC is only 44, im also looking into the interest free loan to install it aswell, i looked into getting insulation grants but its means tested so i wouldnt qualify plus there is about a 2 year waiting list up here iv attached a drawing that i managed to do on a free online drawing tool to show the layout.
