 Post subject: Shed, bolts, roof issue, advice Please
PostPosted: Thu Apr 26, 2018 2:59 pm 
I've put a shed/kennel type building together which used to house dogs with it's previous owner but basically an apex shed type of shape I think you call it. Anyway the only way I can get the roof piece to fit on properly is by moving the side wood panels apart slightly so it widens and the roof will slot into place on top. Is this okay? It basically means there is a slight gap ...

 Post subject: Loft Conversion Joist Hangers
PostPosted: Tue Apr 24, 2018 9:20 pm 
Hi all, I'm tackling a loft conversion and need advice on joist hangers.
Following the Structural Engineers specs I have installed padstones (440mm x 215mm x100mm) for my steels. However, as I'm working on a mid terrace stone cottage I could only the padstone base 15mm below the top of the existing attic joists.

 Post subject: Newell Post Regs
PostPosted: Sat Apr 14, 2018 12:20 pm 
While I'm waiting for my new PVC windows to arrive I thought I'd knock out my old newell post that a previous owner butchered for 70's style.

I've looked online and can only find Canadian regs for the height of Newell posts and bannisters. Can someone point me in the general direction of Uk regs please?

PostPosted: Thu Apr 12, 2018 11:54 am 
I'm redesigning a jigsaw for my university project and would like to ask if there is anything which you would change/add to the design off a jigsaw. If there is then what would it be and why?

What are the features and functions which you'd need to have on it and is there anything missing from the design of a jigsaw which you wish you could add. From the functionality of it to how comfortable ...

PostPosted: Sun Apr 08, 2018 12:36 pm 
Hi all.

I'd like to put a small amount of storage in the eaves of our log cabin. Mostly fishing rods and the like.

I wished I'd concentrated more as school as I cant for the life of me figure out how to find the angle I need to project onto the timber to cut.

Picture below for reference and any guide greatly appreciated Image
