  1. Looking nice, are you going to paint the cylinder head silver while its out?
  2. So with all outer walls done we had it rendered:
  3. It had a 50mm cavity but no insulation, the damp course was slate so no good, all the bricks in the internal walls where damp so replaced by blocks and proper damp proofing. The front however didn’t have any cavity so we put it back with one. in the 50mm cavity walls we packed with insulation and internally used insulated plaster board to give the same properties as a 100mm cavity. the insulated plasterboard might be good for your walls if you have any more decorating to do. im with you on the gas, our old house didn’t have gas.
  4. It had major damp problems and this was the way to sort it for good. if we’d have knocked it down fully and started again we would have had to go for complete planning permissions again whereas this way we only needed planning for the extension.
  5. The last of the walls where done next, the full front to replace
  6. Can’t see the pics mate? Roof felt on, lats on and partly tiled.
  7. Be interested to see the gravitex when you get it applied Sean. Sounds like your doing a great job under there 👍
  8. With the roof on it was time to knock down and rebuild the external walls and put some insulation in the cavities.
  9. Struck lucky here really, the neighbours are great. One of them didn’t even bat an eyelid when I told him I’d cracked his wall with the digger 😂 thanks Kippy, if your ever running in Hull feel free to pop round, be good to see you.
  10. Cheers guys! It’s took some work. Neighbours are absolutely fantastic, no complaints or anything.
  11. Then the existing roof removed
  12. Good work, think I recognise that dodgy character!
