  1. If you needed additional help I would be happy to lend a hand.
  2. Could you not just pop a motion sensor bulb in there, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/B22-E27-E14-5W-220V-18-LED-Motion-Control-PIR-Sensor-Light-Lamp-Bulb-Cool-Warm-/312012637265
  3. Have a look at noip.com for getting around the static IP address issue. if you have a mini server you could set up you could look at DDNS as well. Noip would probably be simpler though.
  4. Thanks Declan, the handle would be in the middle like in this photo, not in to take a pic
  5. Would anyone know if and how I would adjust these windows for a tighter close against the seal. At present the noise is the same with/without the window shut and I can see they aren’t sealing properly. Any help much appreciated. At a freinds house for 24 hours so hoping to try And hell while I am here.
  6. We had a major issue with the electrics just after we occupied our house. The electrics would trip at random times of the day for no reason. All tests in the house came back as normal and all external tests by SSE came back as normal, this went in for 3-4 weeks, they re cabled our pole, checked out the electrics in all the local barns and farms to try and resolve. . It turned out it was the neighbours sewerage pink was going to earth or something whenever it switched on and trippping our electrics when it happened which was why it was happening at random times. Just thought I would mention as it could be something completely random and un thought of causing this.

  8. I would go wired with a switch and access points if you can. If it’s going to prove difficult though, my friend has 3 of these installed in an Old 3 story Victorian town house and they work well. I have never had any issues connections and using the Wi-fi via them. https://www.rselectricalsupplies.co.uk/bg-nexus-metal-brushed-steel-2-gang-wifi-range-extender-13a-socket-with-usb-and-grey-inserts-nbs22uwrg_16809?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI-9GShKDs3QIVioaRCh0jtQvkEAQYBSABEgIZ4PD_BwE
  9. We hired a Caravan for our build, we had it for around 4-5 months and cost around £2k including delivery/collection siting etc.
  10. I can second spectrum, we got a lot of bits from them including cills.
  11. We used ideal work for ours, it has been down two years and still looks great, cost fully installed was around £75m2, https://www.idealworkuk.com/
  12. They could just defer the payment of the stamp duty HM Revenue & Customs requests that stamp duty be paid in the 30 days after contracts are signed in a house purchase, but what happens if you don't? Well, if you pay the tax up to 12 months after the contracts are signed then HMRC will levy a small fee – 10% of the duty - capped at £300.
  13. Thanks all, I will have a play with a double gang box for now and see if it will work. It’s a new build flat, approximately 6 years old so the electrics are all standard nothing has been altered or played with since it’s been built.
  14. Hi, its just a single gang box at the moment, which is a switched spur for a built in dishwasher. I just wanted to add a socket to run a coffee machine because it’s the most convienient location. And its in a a tiled wall which is why I was looking at the conversion plates.
  15. Hi, does anyone know if is possible to get something similar to the below, but instead of two sockets one is a switched spur and the other a normal socket? https://www.screwfix.com/p/schneider-electric-converta-socket-1-gang-to-2-gang-polycarbonate/12849?tc=CA2&ds_rl=1248181&ds_rl=1245250&ds_rl=1249481&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIt4-2k-iv2AIVp7DtCh3CagB0EAQYASABEgKkdvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds&dclid=COC3osfor9gCFTKI7QodSwMHPw
