  1. Regardless of what money or assets you have The lending will ultimately depend on your income
  2. Lancashire Brick Ian Shard (MD)
  3. Great point This was exactly the point that the Sap guy made he said Nov To Feb forget it
  4. This question seems to pop up every now and again I think Dave and Declan answered the question best If you can get the panels cheap and fit yourself It’s worth it But the figures don’t stack up if you use a company to supply and install Our sap producers 7 to 9k install £255 per year saving It would also add 3 points to our final sap rating 88-91 With electric vehicles perhaps a better option
  5. I’ve seen some really poor ICF buildings Yours looks a really nice job Sure you can always add a few more braces I wouldn’t worry looks like your contractor knows what he’s doing
  6. The problem with harnesses is that you need something very secure to fasten to Even a tour scaf is not secure enough Quite a few window cleaners have the long reach cleaning equipment that would perhaps do the job It looks very sloppy up there Not worth the risk
  7. You definitely need to use a cat ladder at the very least Harness would be useless It probably wouldn’t cost much to pay for a couple of guys to go up and clean the whole roof
  8. I build quite a lot of these and always line them with the door openings 2110 Giving about 1200 from extractor to worktop
  9. I did this if it’s any help All singing all dancing Italian extractor To be dare we have only used on the lowest setting
  10. It is Very simple to do bed them on a bit of concrete and they slot together
  11. The amount your builder is charging is such a small amount compared to what some of the brokers are charging We didn’t have a mortgage But if we had the Ecology route would sit much better Even if the charges where the same I suspect you would get a far better service than from a broker
  12. Am I missing something here £4500 for a door We purchased two Solidoors With frames and glass either side Ten year guarantee on locking mechanism look great Open and shut ok &1600 for both
  13. Porcelain is great for outdoors render the block work whit sand and cement then tile Or you can even tile directly onto the block If the BW is perfect
  14. You are correct in thinking that costing your build will be easier when you have the foundations in we spent 50 k to get to slab 265 metres plus two d garages All strip 2mtr deep BB on the main hose This covered a treatment plant All drains and tank and drains for the neighbour and 750 tons of muck away and as much back in So your figures make sense Foundations will be the most difficult to product Great starting point for the rest of the build I Came in at £8000 over for the foundations But pulled it back along the way and finally Came in about 20% under budget Good luck yes it’s cheaper to install while the foundations are going in Your looking about 2k for a treatment plant It took a friend and myself a morning to install our treatment plant and next doors tank and 2 cube of concrete for each to sit in
