    Zoot's Extension- advice needed.

    Dig trench part fill with concrete and maybe rebar brickie builds block work to appropriate level inner leaf for timber frame and depending on look/style outer leaf for brick work make all nice and flat inside cover in visqueen and more concrete poured inside timber wall plate attached to inner block work and timber frame onto that that is one simple way to describe a straightforward extension with no drainage or other works underneath does that help?

    A Home Cinema Living Room

    I watched a basketball game in this ‘home’ cinema at my girls dorm, very nice it is too. Id guess the seats and banking and wall lighting cost more than the tech. https://www.newsobserver.com/news/local/education/article196135589.html

    Avoiding squatters prior to construction work

    Frame out the window and door reveals on the first floor and coach bolt thick OSB to make it look secure. You could reuse the OSB for summit on the build. Up here the council use metal plate and lots of signs but then again we have no squatters right laws in Scotland. usually if it’s a problem someone sends the boys around PS anyone remember Swampy? A touring environmentalist from Bristol I think who had a big following after living up a tree on the route of the planned M77
