  1. Have you tried Glasgow Brickyard in Blochairn? They have a brick matching service.
  2. Thanks. Will give them a look too.
  3. They run the national scheme too, which I don't think has had any take-up. And seem to do a lot of good work in general.
  4. Not sure if you require proof of the road opening permit etc. as part of planning but... in my experience council groundworkers' are quite happy to do the work as homers and the road opening permit can be sorted later if someone complains.
  5. Anyone ever used a product like this? http://www.siteright.net/formplas-permanent-shuttering-p-122.html They do a design and supply service which sounds like it's almost idiot-proof and would then just require a concrete pour, it seems.
  6. Thanks for the info, and all credit to you. Is there a rural housing burden attached to the grant?
  7. Ah right. Sounds like you have a good arrangement there!
  8. Are you using the self build fund?
  9. As a guide, the average detached 4 bed new build home including integrated garage is approximately 139 square metres.
  10. Very interested in this. Thanks for the post.
  11. Where are you getting that quote from? I've had four back for supply and install of a 4kW system ranging from £3995 to 7 grand!
  12. Thanks. Spent an hour on various flooring websites with no joy yesterday but will maybe just take the cutting info a shop and see what they say.
  13. Not sure if this is vinyl or engineered wood or something else altogether but it's exactly what we'd want for transitioning between the kitchen and living area, utility and hall (i.e. same floor type with subtle colour differences merged in). I cannot find anywhere online that does a range of colours - engineered herringbone oak in a few varieties of wood, polyflor vinyl in a couple of colours, but nothing else. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
  14. Yes - but I don't think any second homes tax will affect self-builders (unless that is they buy an existing home to demolish and rebuild on site, as it's a tax on homes not on land.
  15. The additional Don't think that's correct if it's brought in the way it has been done in Scotland where we have an 'additional dwelling supplement'. I expected to pay when buying land but the clue is in the name - it's for dwellings not land.
