    Double Glazing Unit HELP Required PLEASE

    Are your sure there not pressure glazed.. .ie the rubber seal on outside of glass pulls out (not part of pvc frame) if this is case slips wont tap back on..... if so you need to take rubber out first then re slip and then put rubber back in packing glass to slips.....

    Go for any reasonable outside system you fancy.......but.....get yourself one of the nest style indoor camera that you just set on shelf they are often ornament like they link to your internet and send you whatever they pick up to your fone etc.....this means you have evidance even if system gets tampered with.....and if they cover up to gain entry they almost always take it of when inside feeling safe......the quality of image will surprise you....

    Gun Related Number Plates

    Dont make it look personal,,plain font proper spacing etc....most plates get altered to look like a word...may not be as obvious as you think...and if theres nothing shooting related on the jeep..stickers etc why would anyone know you shoot......keep it plain.....

    Some Carpentry jobs

    Get over it...he fitted a floor and treads big deal....as a time served joiner (30yrs) myself i see it as basic skill hence not impressed like i said if treads had been made on site then yes fair play but they wernt....i did not at any point say it was poor work.....skill sets have changed nowadays the ability to do things truly bespoke on site is almost a thing of the past....young tradesmen(i use this term losely) dont know how and mostly dont want to be bothered thinking on there feet its either im to busy or wont turn up...they think working on pre-made houses makes them a tradesman....a 60yr old workshop man has a true skill set thats now being lost to the flatpack generation....

    Not harsh the op stated pics of his work,,the flooring is just fitting some one else's work...yea you still need to know what your at but its still just fitting pre made bits....sorry like the decking steps not impressed.....but each to their own...lol (im sure most ppl who have commented also thought he made it not fitted it).....big difference!!!

    Would have been impressed if you made them on site (templates jigsaw router table) but as you just basically fitted a wooden floor the skill lies with the supplying workshop......(sorry just my view)
