    Torx concrete screws: are they the same as framing screws?

    If there are sheer forces then a thunder bolt might be better, if it's simply bedded on top of a block wall and to keep it from lifting then these will be fine and cheap enough from toolstation etc

    Yes that will be fine, so long as the primer is touch dry

    Tiling...many questions

    How would it work out with the mosaic effect tile landscape instead of portrait?

    Tiling...many questions

    Would cutting a one square depth of the mosaic effect tile not be sufficient? They look about 30mm

    If your cuts are in at the junctions of wall/floor or wall/wall you won't see them especially after a file yo smooth the edge

    Removing Stucco render?

    You need an sds drill with a chisel bit. It's still going to be hard work though!
  9. It looks very good. Do you really want an angled wall in Bed 3 and family area? Might the stairs be better with a double half landing, it looks a bit tight at the top of the stairs. (You would have to move the door to bed 4) The corner window/bifold in the living room could be swapped to be a straight window/bifold. It seems an unnecessarily expensive way of doing it A large house such as this would ideally have a double/triple garage. Is the plot too tight for this?

    Whatever thickness you want, but put your lines at 2-3mm vertical and 2-3mm horizontal

    I've used the grey in this exact situation (internal angle) and had no problem. Put two lines of masking tape to keep a straight run and plenty of multisolve on your finger to help smooth it

    That can only mean your bead is not straight. You probably need to cut the right hand tile and put that in. It might be going to end up 2,1,1,2...3 What space have you got between the bead and the tile on the vertical face?

    Slowly moving to Torx: why?

    I'm a fan of the torx bits, my only problem is I've got plenty PZ2 bits, but never a Torx 30 when I need it!

    False ceiling panel for mood lighting

    I'venot done it in a living room before, but in a kitchen with a celing height we took the celing a total of 142mm over kitchen cuboards and islands without any negative consequences
