    Lead-lock, but you'll need a bit more working space.

    Found a nice door in a skip 33" x 78"

    6'6" x 2'9" is a standard size door so frames are available off the shelf from normal builders merchants / Howdens etc. Or as above just make one to suit.

    Render for ICF walls

    Thanks all for the replies, much appreciated.
  8. As per title, what have people used to render their ICF structures. As far as I'm aware a two coat, thin coat render is the preferred option but what make have people used and what problems if any have been encountered. And where is the best place to buy from.

    After the timber frame

    Re. the copings for the parapet wall. I priced for aluminium copings this week for an U shape, total length approx. 30m. Costs came in at about £1800, ouch. So after some thoughts I have come up with the solution of making my own using GRP roofing materials. I will fix a USB3 capping to the top of the parapet and put drips on using the correct trims. Place a capping piece on top, seal the joints using resin and bandage and then top coat the lot. The finished colour is a dark grey and against a white render I think this should look ok. And it will cost a fraction of the £1800.
  11. I have a concrete pump ordered for this week and the company I am using says it is VATable at the standard rate. I know this is wrong and should be zero rated but what bit of the VAT rules should I quote to make them realise this. Thanks

    I think you're confusing 50mm and 500mm, hence your final total ?
