    Lots of hot air

    I grew up and worked on my dads farm. It’s still going and has pig, broiler chickens, free range layers and arable. Broiler chickens and pigs take up very little space for huge amounts of food. But the big thing is that without the animal manure the crops yield is reduced massively. I’m sorry...

    Lets talk lawn mowers.

    Have you looked a toro time master for your size lawn? We have one for our garden which is 1/2 acre. Takes about 30 mins. Chose this over a ride on as there cheap to maintain and better around trees and tight spaces...

    advice on tools for timber framing.

    Definitely worth using a chain Morticer, hiring will probably cost more than buying as they retain their value so well. You could borrow ours but we’re a bit far away in Suffolk!

Ended up with paslode im350 guns. So much better and all nail boxes come with gas so it’s not much hassle. You buy nails in...

    Dewalt radial arm saw

    Dewalt 721kn 240v This was bought ex demo in 2016. It was used for a few days on one job and has sat in the corner of the workshop unused ever since. Excellent condition, everything works perfect but may need to replace the wood top as it’s bowed. A real bargain as this is the current model and...

    Face frame kitchens.....whats the best way to attach em?

    We biscuit our frames onto the carcass and then use a pocket hole between each biscuit. No glue in case it needs to come apart. For the frame joints we use dominos, clamp and put a few brads in from the back, this way the clamps can come straight off.

    House build

    Nearing the end of the build, maybe 6 weeks left while I build the kitchen, stairs, utility etc. pictures so far are of the build over the last year leading up to now. I bought everything I would need the week before everything was shut down so should be ok to finish.

    House build

    Thanks bob, really enjoyed seeing your build thread but your right, it’s knackering running a business and a self build together! Cheers

    House build

    To tell you the truth I’m not really sure how the membranes work ect, this was how the architect and building control specified it so I just went along with it. The full build up is 6x2 with rock wool between studs, 11mm osb, breathable membrane, 50mm celotex, 25mm batten with cedar cladding on top.
