  2. Hey, Everybody!

    Before I ended up in social services I was a shoemaker mainly in bespoke *surgical* shoes. Once I went self employed I enjoyed the year or so I worked for a threesome of young female designers from Cordwainers College...I was the practical one trying to make their wacky designs. Vanity is Sanity if I recall ๐Ÿ˜€
  3. My Nightmare Heating System

    Best post in ages...the value of the forum writ large๐Ÿ˜€ No spoilers please, I wanna know who done it...
  4. Which is worse, heave or subsidence?

    It's all a matter of degree and likelihood and then engineering an acceptable solution. Professional competence coupled with experience and knowledge of the published standards will provide an independent answer for which I guess someone will want you to pay for. Or in other words, I've no idea whatsoever
  5. On the home straight

    I'm thinking that looks very very nice for a wee holiday home...
  6. The best bothie ever?

    Oh and you can sing, drink, cook and sleep too but not always in that order. Makes me wonder if we could have bothies in cities...free and basic. Suppose the problem is security and harmony, harder to achieve in the urban jungle than in the hills, just a thought about homelessness and this cold snowy winter...
  7. The best bothie ever?

    Same thing in many ways Out exposed, in the cold of the winter, they save your life. In the summer, you and your community build/maintain/improve them for when you might need them. Free, open and honest What's not to like
  8. The best bothie ever?

    Nice post @jamiehamy Living in the hut isn't unlike how our parents lived in the Glasgow of the 1950's... It can be very comfortable and feels better as you are aware you have made it all happen, teaching kids to set a fire is a good thing๐Ÿ˜€ Also, nowadays with Bluetooth speakers and Tesco selling ice for a quid a bag, luxury parties are easy to host in the hut๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰
  9. Hello all!

    First Buildhub project with internal flume...looking forward to seeing the plans
  10. Hello all!

    Hello David, Just up the road from me and very near the hut at Carbeth ๐Ÿ˜‰ @jamiehamy should be along soon
  11. Gamekeeper turned Poacher!

    I think @Fredd should be read in a Cornish accent or maybe Welsh... clearly one of the regulars having a fantastic time pushing all your buttons๐Ÿ˜€ I'm loving it, it's better than the adventures of Rollo... although there may be a similarity or two in the writing style ๐Ÿ˜‰
  12. Bevel edge tiles

    Help any...
  13. Shed bases

    Rubba-seal.co.uk They do EPDM to exact size but price has gone up to ยฃ7.25 per m...last year was 5.99 if I recall.
  14. Shed bases

    I've done a few options on various huts. The three budget options are Good quality felt, don't even bother with the thin stuff. ยฃ6/7m EPDM rubber. ยฃ6/7m Oduline bitumen sheets.ยฃ7/8m EPDM is very easy to do but you need a clean surface to stick it to. Put 11mm OSB on first and you can have more strength and neat edges/soffit/ bargeboard/gutters. Lasts 30 plus years and 100% waterproof. This would be my choice. Oduline next best. Easy to do with their serrated and capped nails. Some folk like the wavy look. If one sheet is long enough meaning no joins, I'd consider this too. If you do watch the video, it's easy to put it on upside down...only one side has UV protection and if you get it wrong it will go quickly from black to grey and degrade. The cost with oduline will rack up if you buy all the verge and edge trim and on a small roof you may go well over the price I mentioned. Beware! Felt is shit but cheap and okay for a few years.
  15. Granted. YEEEES GET IN.

    Great news @Russell griffiths well done. This will also be great encouragement for others embarking on the same journey. Be nice to see you progress through the next couple of years. Have the weekend off boss and enjoy that nice feeling ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€
