  1. can't understand why, it burns really well, about the only thing it's good for. ohh, unless you're cladding the external side of your kit 😯
  2. hi @Tennentslager leave all rafters long, string line through when finished and then cut plumb and seat cuts.
  3. get a deeper sink! the other option would be to have a slight fall towards the front of the units to prevent water running backwards.
  4. absolutely, may need to use breakfast bar to get enough width

  10. you did turn the bottle on and switch it to the correct bottle? ☺️ just asking😉
  11. have you looked https://www.usedkitchenexchange.co.uk/product-category/handleless-kitchens/ here?
  12. welcome to the madhouse, in three years you'll have caught up with @joe90
  13. i take it that as you know it's clay with sand, you know how deep to put the hardcore in to? the pile of recycled material will be fine for bottoming, compacted well with type 1 on top. as @Declan52 says, you can build up in block and fill with concrete, alternatively you can build up in well compacted type 1 and then shutter the slab on top.
