    hefty for charging batteries, if i were you i'd get one with a 110v socket as well, may never use it, however, if it ain't there and you do need it.........

    Too flat a flat roof?

    EDPM roofing material is far superior to the felt roofs of old, however, i have fitted many torch on felt roofs and found it to be a good product. i did burn the felt to the osb as opposed to sticking basic felt to the roof by pouring hot tar over the osb and then torching felt to that. 'but that's the way we've done it for years'.............

    Gaulhofer windows and doors : Thomas Froelich

    we did the same in Edinburgh self build, he came down to see us and discuss the project. A sad day indeed, a genuinely nice guy who will be sadly missed. As with others, our thoughts with family and colleagues.

    Loft will be considered habitable space

    if the opening is wider than the space between the joists it's a bit more than that
