    DIY Large Internal Sliding Door

    @Dudda have you made the door now? Just wondering how you constructed it in the end as I will need to make my one soon.
  2. @vivienz thank you for the post.
  3. Not that I am aware of. not sure, I am assuming that is the external diameter, will need to check when i'm back on site. Wood Yes I meant internal stud wall.
  4. @PeterW @joe90 that's what i was fearing that there wouldn't be much left of the partition after drilling. I can reroute some of the ducting through the back of a cupboard, so that none of it has to go through the partition. The ducting going through the partition was as per the BPC ventilation design.
  5. Can someone please tell me what size of Holesaw is best for fitting the 75mm quietvent radial pipe ducting? Some of the ducting holes need to go through the 89mm partitions so don't want the wholes to be too big but at the same time don't want them to be too snug making it difficult to pull the ducting through. https://www.bpcventilation.com/quietvent-radial-pipe-75mm-x-50m

    Plastering and the white room of paint

    @vivienz would you be able to show a close up of the issue of needing end panels between the unties and appliances please? I have ordered Our kitchen from diy kitchens and didn’t think I would need panels inbetween units.

    New walk in shower area

    I’m looking at using some large format tiles so that there are less joins/grout. 750 x 1500mm https://www.imolaceramica.com/media/depliant/DP LIME-ROCK.pdf 1200 x 2600mm https://www.imolaceramica.com/media/depliant/DP THE ROOM.pdf

    Ugly house re-design

    I thing the flat roof on the atrium looks better. I think you need to work on the other window positions, try and get them at similar heights (where possible). Also do you really need the random patio doors on the front of the house, looks a bit odd. Also how about the dormer having a flat roof to match the atrium

    Retaining wall

    I need to construct one which has a max height of 1 metre. I am thinking about using concrete fence posts and gravel boards. This will work out a lot cheaper for me compared to getting a professional to construct a block wall. I have seen a company on ebay that sells posts and boards cheaper than B&Q etc. I haven't checked to see what delivery would cost yet. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Various-Size-Slotted-Reinforced-Concrete-Posts/283338462501?_trkparms=aid%3D555018%26algo%3DPL.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140122125356%26meid%3D55b1c3254cf54c81ada7f844add6d13b%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D283327548345%26itm%3D283338462501&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/6FT-x-1FT-Plain-Concrete-Gravel-Boards-Pack-Of-10/283327548345?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3Dde5324c0b27c4fa683a99297e660690e%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D163512746797%26itm%3D283327548345&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A68028a39-2557-11e9-830c-74dbd180cf30|parentrq%3Aa3f9f8421680ab6b23c60346ffe2eb4c|iid%3A1

    Sometimes Twitter has lovely threads

    bloody fowereners coming here stealing our jobs and now cooking customers dinner. Role on the 32nd of March I heard this yesterday, which made me chuckle "Give me what I want or i'll jump out of the window."

    Have you already done lots of research for atrium ideas on google image search, Houzz, Pinterest etc?

    I still don’t think it looks right. Do you need the glass section to “stick out” from the rest of the house? I have double height glass, but it’s all flush with the rest of the house.

    I prefer this to this first idea you showed us. However I don't like how the roof on the main house gable is lower on the left side compared to the right. Can it not be symmetrical?

    I don't like the sloped roof on the atrium, have you considered a flat roof, something like this?
