  1. This is a subject that had escaped us nearly during the reaserch and design phase of our build. We are I would think looking at a fit into our new build and fitting into the existing house as and when and where it could be practical. We had our design highlited for better practice with seeking planning in regard to the new toilet space we are creating under the stairs which we got needed some form of vent. It will almost become the centre of the house and in need if a ventilation or blowing of wiffs! The original dining room will also become 4m away from an exterior vent so that i guess will need some form of vent. The extemsion element of the build will be in isotex block ans raft floor foundations possibly with wet underfloor heating. The roof is being researched but we woukd be looking at a much insulationas is possible without costing us the earth! More practical affordable approach over what i beleive to be passive approach. Is there much variance in cost between systems? We have identified or been told so far we should look at.... 2 wet rooms kitchen utility 1 isolated room mid house 1 toilet under stairs 2 bathrooms upstairs Can a MHVR be used to distribute heat across the house too or am i being overly ambitious? What have others used? Your help and practical approach here is welcomed and thanks in advance

    Getting my head round joists and I like the look of the metal web joists with timber which seem to come in a variety of trade used names. Is there much variance in price for these? How much energy is it worth spending to get the best price? As it stands at 400mm centres i reckon i need approximately 7 @6m amd 19 @4.4m as longitudinal joists

  10. I'm in Rugby and struggling with most timber yards not being "open" to find a few sheets of BB grade ply. I just want a few sheets that I can fit in my car within a reasonable collection distance of CV21. I tried the best independent according to their blurb and despite a load of flannel would not be prepared "at this time" to sell sheets not on a pallet!
  11. No further away. Just the other side of the wall and possibly an inch or so closer. As to your 2nd question no idea..not had our papers yet
  12. Our house was a exemplar for an estate short by world war two

  14. Possibly... What seems to make some sense doesn't always
