    Wood Fibre

    I purchased all my Rockwool flexi from https://www.ccfltd.co.uk/Rockwool-Flexi-Insulation-Slab-1200-x-600mm/p/9000218706 I had about 200 packs as my walls have 3 layers of 140mm, 70mm and 50mm. Really great product, very dense. Easy to fit and cut with a saw. If you are working at 600 or 400 centres all works well. Stays in place even in the rafters.

    Lifting heavy RSJ

    I think weight was about 390kg. As @Construction Channel said they do wobble. We hired 2 x SL18. Max load 295kg each and height 5.6m.

    Lifting heavy RSJ

    10.5 metre steel, my Dad and I hired a couple of Genies, very near the 4.8m height limit. A little sketchy but get organised, go slow and its done.

    Wet UFH System- Nu-heat, U-Heat?

    I had quotes from Nuheat and settled for Wunda, kit is very good quality and they provide drawings. And a lot cheaper.
  5. Thanks for this, about to order kit for kids bathrooms, found this: same drop as yours? https://www.victorianplumbing.co.uk/hudson-reed-round-ceiling-arm-300mm-length-chrome-arm16?campaign=googlebase&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIgq3L69jw4AIVBZPtCh3iVwMlEAQYASABEgL9uvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

    I started with a double extension ladder and since starting the build now have 3 Glass fibre step ladders, one step up and a single section 4.5m roof ladder. All from here : https://www.laddersukdirect.co.uk

    Soil Vent Pipe Tata Roof.

    Update from BCO : Email below Thanks everyone, @Barney12 @JSHarris @Carrerahill "The installation details seems to suggest that the SVP can be provided from the inlet to remove the need to vent externally. The vent should be on the inlet side. An AAV internally will be acceptable internally".

    Soil Vent Pipe Tata Roof.

    @JSHarris @Carrerahill @Barney12 Reply from the BCO below. Shall I mention having an external vent near the treatment plant? "Normally the head of the run will still require venting to external air as is shown in the picture of the drain run as this is the only vent on the property an AAV is not acceptable unless there is any guidance from the treatment plant supplier confirming different. This is probably not want you wanted to hear."

    Soil Vent Pipe Tata Roof.

    @JSHarris @Carrerahill Thanks for your replies. I did look at this thread you had contributed to. Yes I do want to avoid cutting holes in the roof. Gable end vent could work though its very close to Velux windows. Or could put AAV at the top of stack in roof space above the 1st floor bathroom and venting at the end of the foul drain run near the Vortex treatment plant. Do you T off the soil pipe just before it gets to the treatment plant? I will contact the BCO.
  10. I need to cut a hole through the Tata Urban seam roof which I have been a bit reluctant to do. Can anyone recommend collars / flashings which would work best with the roof, Thank you.

    Metal roofing tools

    Hi there, very happy so far with the roof. I chose it because I could fit myself and it was within my budget. Lots of other options on the Forum here.

    I just used Turbo gold PZ wood screws but someone mentioned the Glue! Gloves essential otherwise it remains on your hands for weeks...have fun, first floor really makes working a lot easier.

    Flooring, quick check, please ...

    Thats how I did our first floor. Caberdek P5 22mm. I put the floor down before the roof. All ok.

    Metal roofing tools

    Hi Russell Sorry for the delay, only just seen your post. For my Tata roof they supplied, 3 tools. Eaves closer, Stubai pliers and Flange mate. I also bought left and right off set tin snips. Best bit was Makita 136mm 30 tooth metal blade for circular saw, I cut all the panels with this.
