Gas or electric tumble dryer

Gas is a lot cheaper than electricity so running costs ought be less. But you would have to lay on a gas supply and presumably specialized ducting. That's going to be pricey. It may well be that gas dryers are phased out in time for electrical ones: you can make green electricity but not green gas

Attic over battening/flooring

The boards were 8'x2' OSB t&g. I was laying length perpendicular to the joist direction. Supported either edge in the 2 ft direction, at every joist over the 8 ft direction. Joists about 400mm apart

Attic over battening/flooring

I decked recently using stilts. Rather than buy those expensive plastic ones, I just used 16" lengths of 4x2 and screwed them into the joists from the side (screws angled downwards). Bit of care an attention to keep them level, then decked thereupon. This allowed for a foot of insulation over the b

Saddle Board prob

If there's any kind of gap you can squirt a bit of MS11 Clear (like Tec7 but cheaper) along the gap both sides and leave alone for a day or two. Just did it in a house I was tidying up. But you do need a little bit of a gap

Creating en suite bathroom

There's no way to cost something like that unseen. You say "pass the tubes under it". But you won't pass a 4" soil pipe under it, if the joists are in the way. And if you decide to pass the 4" soil pipe over the floor to outside (say via a rear bedroom and on out the wall), you have to get it to sew

What are some great Christian books you've read?

It's not necessary to agree with what he says, but Martyn Lloyd Jones is worth a look if you've never read an exposition (a thoroughly detailed, word by word analysis on what that piece of scripture is saying). It is dense (his study on Romans formed a 14 book x 300-400 page each library) but easy

Would you bid for house with tenants living in

There was a guy on here not so long ago who bought a house only to find the council had already compulsory purchased the bulk of the front garden for a road straightening scheme. It appeared on the land registry map but the solicitor didn't notice it. I wouldn't be relying on a solicitor when I coul

Pvc bathroom ceiling

In laws got it done. Looks fine (if you don't mind plastic ceilings). Have no idea what's going on above it though. Could be a mould fest for all I know

Is the whole environment scare like a modern Armageddon

As we all noticed, there has been a relatively rapid appearance of global warming (and its effects) on the front page of mainstream news and social media. It isn't to be unexpected that this is the way things occur: the scientists spot it early and start writing on it and it takes a while (until lot

Is the whole environment scare like a modern Armageddon

STOP+++PRESS+++STOP+++PRESS Kaiser, how could you have " no empirical models or methods that can enable quantitative predictions in the case of glaciers with sliding dynamics" if this was something that happened all the time but was only being noticed due to the power of social media and our guilt

Advise on loose dado rail

Prise it away from the wall without pulling it loose, squirt some MS11/TEC7 down the gap from above and below. Lean something heavy against it, some chairs with weight on them, a book case, whatever. Wipe excess clear (there won't be much if you get it deep down and don't go over the top). Wait a da

Is the whole environment scare like a modern Armageddon

You do accept that there was a period when nobody talked about the hole in the ozone layer and then the hole in the ozone layer was front page news? That the shift in positioning to front page and all the actions taken wasn't the result of scientists suddenly discovering the hole. Or down to the par

Is the whole environment scare like a modern Armageddon

Apologies. I suppose I was reading something into this: The question then isn't whether the climate changes by itself (it does, we agree). Or that mankind has accelerated the effect (we agree he has). The question is whether the accelerating effect due to mankind is sufficient to have brought ab
