My life changed when I got handed a 20lb 3 foot wrecking bar, I think I'm the 4th owner & intend to hand it down to my favorite grandchild when I'm too frail to swing it :3:

I've never seen crossbracing like this before, is it common? What issue does it solve?

When they clean up fly-tipping sites in the UK they go through any paperwork and prosecute anyone they find info for.

Its the same with working on cars, If you havent bled by the time you finish a job, somethings going to go horribly wrong. As soon as the blood sacrifice is made, its smooth sailing from then on.

I gave myself a black eye fitting a towbar yesterday, it did get easier after that funnily enough...

Yeah sorry I'm not agreeing with the term radiant coolling, just pointing out it was used.

I've a couple of bags of cement that were bought in August, will they be okay? If they should be okay will sealing them in a waterproof box preserve it longer?

I'm just happy that 99% of my house is blueboard and plaster. SO much stronger than drywall (I mean, it's basically concrete on the walls), and just as easily patched if you know what you're doing. And no sanding. It isn't hard to learn to do small stuff, but I leave big stuff to the professionals.

This is drywall and a skimcoat of plaster right?

If I apply statistics to the average American car show I've seen that amount of land should have at least 2.6 jeeps already.

The house likely won't be over 600sqft total out there and will be at least this well insulated, but the barn is gonna be freakin' huge, and likely not as well insulated, so I figured 140k btu might be about right for it, or at least closer.

What's a 600sqft layout look like?

Come to think of it what's the layout of this place look like and how big is it actually?

$600 for a track saw? I paid £160 for my scheppach with 2 700mm tracks. I paid another £40 for a 1400mm track later on clearance. Nothing wrong with it other than don't trust the angle indicator, always measure independently.
