  1. Yes, I took out a 10 year with Selfbuild zone. Protek said wait until September when they might have new insurers.
  2. Hi Dianne We use a 4G connection in our rental house, while building, and it works very well, very fast and much better than the BT landline equivalent. We have Vodafone unlimited 4g+ for £26 a month, but I think most mobile companies now offer an unlimited SIM. We regularly connect at 100mbits, but we are close to a town. I agree, try the speed on your phone and see what you might be able to get. It would be worth spending a little more money for an LTE+ router, but only if your phone suggests you can get a fast connection where you live.
  3. Just done this for our build site. I agree, apply direct to the water company, it’s not a difficult process and they will help you through it. I found the guys who came out to survey and inspect the trench were really helpful. They are very used to connecting a standpipe as a part of a request for a house connection at a later date.
  4. I’m not certain, haven’t got to that stage yet. I would think it would need the cable to push through the profile, then plaster, and add the led strip after plastering?
  5. I’m looking to do this too, with led strips and blinds concealed at the window heads. My plan was to just put in a 100mm down stand at the window head and plaster flush with the adjacent wall so there is a gap to hide away blinds and lights. It would hide the top of the window, but the windows are pretty big so if won’t be a problem.
  6. For some of the spaces you could consider a plaster-in LED profile? Something like this: https://t-lighting.co.uk/catalog/product/view/id/497/s/led-aluminium-profile/
  7. I will be needing two 1000x1500 roof windows later this year. Take a look at Lamilux - they have several options for motors, including a concealed option, and can open 300 or 400mm. There’s a configuration tool on their web site https://www.lamilux.co.uk/skylights/products/flat-roof-window/glass-skylight-fe-3-with-aluminium-profile.html
