  1. Anderzander, I fully agree. Unless the Welsh govt or UK govt make it financially better for them to continue, you’d expect them to go where it makes financial sense to do so.
  2. Oh dear.... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-53317740 so may not be British made (or out together should I say).
  3. Got to agree about the front grill, the inner lights just seem to be in the wrong place. On first look, the back doors, I thought looked very ‘pajero-esque’ with the double doors. In the video, with the designer, he mentions the smaller one being the first door to open. I liked the sound of that, but then thought if I had one, and the dogs are in a crate then I’ll be forever opening both anyway. I think from a ‘worker’ perspective, a lot of tool bags/boxes are fairly large so I think both will need opening either way. So from my ramblings, I think it would be better if the larger o
  4. When I’m working on the house in Wales, and in some rooms I can get a good dab signal now. Previously and in some areas of the house I still use my phone as a hotspot (4G unlimited data) and stream from that to my iPad. So depending on what your house WiFi or mobile data package is like, I would look at a cheap internet radio or a smart speaker for the garage. Otherwise you’ll be just plugging your phone in and listening/streaming from that on speaker.
  5. So in the military, the current explosives is PE8 rather then PE4. However the P doesn’t stand for Plastic (well it does) but everyone says it’s for ‘Plenty’. So.....calculate what you want and add a bit more...then run for cover!
  6. Another possibility is http://www.landrover-parts.net/index.php . Not purchased from them before, but believe that people have said they were good (that was 6 or so years ago mind).
  7. Be wary of the roots on the tree to the left and also the willow on the right. i agree with FF if you can, go as close to the boundary fence as you can. Even if you don’t, I would be tempted to put the small door on the side facing the rest of the garden. looking at the dwgs again, when you park a second car in the bay, it’s going to block access to the personnel door anyway. however looks good and a good size.
  8. I’m 7 years in to my full renovation on a 3 bed farmhouse in N Wales. I assume from the age of the house, it’s a solid stone wall with no dpc. If so please use breathable materials. Lime render/plaster etc. After I took the old gypsum plaster off the internal walls, the damp smell disappeared in a couple of months, and that was with no heating. Heating is only just going back in. Funnily enough, last Apr I started to clear the ground for my garage (about 6mx6m), however the digger I used was a lot smaller!
  9. Rather than trussed roof, if you went with a traditional cut roof, you wouldn’t have any horizontal joists/rafters to worry. You may need ties at the top and purlins at mid points on the rafter arms though.
  10. The good old ‘Anchor Earth Holdfast’ or AEH set. Banging all the pins in takes a while....and they are a bugger to pull out afterwards. if I remember right, 1 AEH is good for about 1 ton. You set the others up inline and or in a crows foot with hefty D Shackles. Had a few in my G1098 store when I was a Troop commander in Germany in 2003.
  11. Surely that’s a a great thing??? How many times have you taken something apart, and put it back to find you’ve missed something out the first time! i know I have! great to see all went well and it’s back on the road.
  12. I wouldn’t fit foil backed foam underlay, to the walls and roof. I would say 25mm kingspan or as thick as you can get between the uprights. If you wanted something more flexible, then the foil covered bubble wrap insulation is good. I mean the stuff that gets added to roof spaces, like this https://www.tradestoreonline.co.uk/Vapour-Barrier-and-Thermal-Insulation-Aluminium-Foil-Membrane?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIpv21sv2m1wIViz8bCh1-Qg6oEAQYBSABEgL86_D_BwE
  13. Sorry, I was sure he had one in it before.
  14. Lewis, Yes. Look for cwazyrabbit's link in his signature.
