    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

    Generator

    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.

    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.

    Timber Crib Wall

    Need a fair size machine to move them into place. I’m using local farmers. Best decision I ever made. Mini digger n driver £150 a day. JCB n driver £200 a day. They’re bloody good too. Some of the manouvers Adam pulls off in that mini digger are death defying.

    Timber Crib Wall

    I’ll take some tomorrow. The bottom two courses are 1.5mx0.6mx0.6m blocks, laid lengthways. The upper 4 courses are a combination of 1.8mx0.6mx0.6m and 1.2mx0.6mx0.6m laid horizontally. No need for any mortar as the blocks interlock. The foundation is 400m high at the front and 100m high at the back creating a incline. This massively reduces the required width at the base compared to a traditional gravity retaining wall. Here are are a few pics of the bank and blocks being delivered.

    Timber Crib Wall

    I got a eye watering £40k qoute for a 4m x 12m timber crib retaining wall. £4K worth of huge concrete Lego blocks done the job. If anyone needs a cost effective retaining wall I recommend concrete Lego.
