    Buying a used van or pick up.

    I ended up looking at caddy and transporters. Caddy was a bit on the small side and only 2 seats. Transporters seemed crazy money due to camper conversion potential. They all had high mileage in my price range and didn’t have nice spec. Then I stumbled across this. Nice spec, one owner and a price I was happy with. It’s a highline with pretty much every option including dsg gearbox. Im really happy with it. Not going to bother leasing another car when my Volvo goes back.

    Generator

    I just bought a 300kg rated, folding platform trolley from Aldi for £35. The generator sits on it fine and it is easy enough to move. It all goes in the back of my xc60. I would rather get mains power once my house is watertight. for £299 I’m happy with what I got. I love a bargain

    I’m not ashamed to say my kitchen will be ex display.

    Poggenpohl make me laugh. £40,000 for mdf cabinets.

    No kitchen on earth is worth £27,000. Mark ups are ridiculous. I’m glad I’m not married. GF has no say in my build, even if she thinks different.

    They have 3 left. Really good price for a makita. https://www.worldofpower.co.uk/makita-eg2250a-2-2kw-petrol-4-stroke-generator.html

    Thanks for all the advice. It’s appreciated as always. I bought the makita. Seemed a bargain at £299. Even compared to the Lidl one which isn’t in stock.

    My site doesn’t lend itself well that. It’s large l shaped and split level with the house on the lower level. A 900w Honda is over £800.

    Generator

    No doubt it will get used for a lot more than charging batteries. That is my primary concern at the moment though. I’m going to need a generator onsite. The build will be mostly DIY with help from a few skilled friends. Light amongst other things will be a concern in a month or 2. 49kg isn’t too heavy. If it goes in the back of a Volvo I’m good.

    Honda are no doubt the best but expensive. I’m thinking that Makita is a good option?

    I was looking at this one. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Böhler-AG-Petrol-Generator-3-8KVA-WX3800K/dp/B06W9DXZBX/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1537818534&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=Generator&psc=1 It’s just for charging batteries and power tools on site.

    Can anyone recommend a good, cheap petrol generator? just had a look on eBay and there are loads to choose from. Brands I have never heard of though. Thanks

    Timber Crib Wall

    I looked at every possible option and this was by far the cheapest and quickest for my situation. My house is going to be ICF and clad in timber though. Can’t wait to get started.
