  1. A good point you make .
  2. Just put your drain trap on the floor and fill it with water and see if water stays in the bottom after the surplus has run out the waste connection.
  3. Stitch drill the circle and finish off with the core bit.Remember if it’s a finished wall on the outside the stitch drilling will blow the surface away ,so stop drilling before you go right through the wall if that’s the case.
  4. This company has an interesting foundation system. I don’t know how far they travel. https://www.abbeypynford.co.uk/our-services/housedeck/
  5. This company were at future build ideal for a second kitchen. http://elfinkitchens.co.uk/
  6. Just make sure the taps you choose are suitable for the hot and cold water pressure you have in the house .
  7. You need a set of box spanner’s like these.Plenty on Ebay,B&Q,Screwfix,Toolstation.
  8. Have you thought of using something like Ikea or other online kitchen planners for your kitchen plan. You need far more information than on these pictures.I agree with your thoughts on wall units, also consider tall housings for appliances and storage. Instead of cupboards under the worktops pan drawer sets work well . In the corners 900 l shape base units give you the best access for basic units.
  9. Here is some information about Stepoc. Stepoc Installation Details (rev9).pdf
  10. Has anyone on here used Stepoc blocks for basement walls? What are the pros and cons for this system?
  11. It looks good value and comes with basket strainers as well !! Extra cost on lots of sinks. Just make sure that the base unit is big enough for an Undermount sink to drop in. #
  12. Here is what to look for when buying a stainless sink. You will find that most of the cheap sinks are magnetic which means poor quality stainless.The mirror finishes should be avoided as they scratch easily. The better quality sinks only have one tap hole and need to be ordered either LH or RH drainer. https://www.thisoldhouse.com/ideas/5-tips-shopping-stainless-steel-sink
  13. Undermount sinks are no good for laminate worktops.If they are wood worktops you will need a jig and heavy duty router as edge is on show. The raw edge deteriorates over time .Undermount sinks are best with granite and quartz worktops, they are far more difficult than sit on sinks to fit.
  14. You can just extend the existing hose with a kit like this.There is no water pressure in this hose so a leak is unlikely, just run the machine and check the hose before you put the plinth back. If the hose connects to the sink trap just make sure to use the u shape form making the hose position higher than the connection to the trap as it stops dirty water running back down the pipe when you pull the plug on a bowl full of water. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B018K9UO7Q/ref=asc_df_B018K9UO7Q57342624/?tag=googshopuk-21&creative=22146&creativeASIN=B018K9UO7Q&linkCode=df0&hvadid=255708777834&hvpos=1o24&hvnetw=g&hvrand=2617950745367274315&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=t&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9045104&hvtargid=pla-529609684701
