Well, what with bad weather, funds, ill health and other commitments, it's taking its time, but this is where we are at.

Electricity is currently being installed, so it's just the fibreglass roof to go on and the patio door. After that, it's the home stretch with things like rendering and insulation.

What with the weather and all, it's taking its time but we managed to finish off the fibreglass roof (and guttering) yesterday.

I have a question, how do I safely and legally dispose of the four empty resin 20kg drums that are left?

Thanks all

if they are empty drums then you can take the to the tip, if they are not empty (you have no need for them anymore) and you have some hardener left throw it in there, then once dry you can take it to the tip, this is the advice my local tip gave me when i was getting rid of some epoxy resin

Well, the heavy lifting has been done, now it's just a matter of cosmetics like painting the exterior and interior.

Image

I do have a problem though. Because we were working within the council 'height' limits, the DPC is the same level as the ground level - where it should have been at least 4" above it. The problem is, even though the DPC is preventing water from coming up into the interior, it's not stopping the water from coming in from the side, like this:

Image

I've taken about 2" off the turf but it's not really helped. There's not a lot of water here, it's just damp moisture. The plan is to dig a soakaway the length of the side of the ground:

Image

As you can see by the red highlighted area, I don't want to skim any more of the turf away because it's revealing the bottom of the rendering; it'll just be exposing the surface to more weather conditions.

Any ideas?
