  1. I remember once when my uncle taught me how to milk a cow blind folded. Great old memories
  2. After a bit of advice chaps, especially from anyone who has done something similar. I’ve got a double garage which has two single doors separated by a block work column. I want to get the column knocked out, install a beam and fit a double garage door. I’ve had confirmation that this doesn’t require planning permission which is a touch, but struggling to find out whether it needs building control. My house is semi detached, with my bedroom being above the garage and the side of the garage being the shared wall with next door. I’ve read through the party wall act and as I’m not affecting the party wall, nor am I changing the use of the garage, the party wall act doesn’t apply. I’m also friendly with my neighbour and have been discussing the works with him already, which he is happy enough with. So my query is around building control. There’s a list of exemptions on the website, which includes building new car ports, single storey detached extensions up to 30m2 etc, which in comparison opening the garage door to a double is a small project. Just wondered whether anyone on here has experience and can confirm if it needs building regs. I’m waiting a call back from the duty inspector on the matter. I just don’t want to pay £450 for an unnecessary building control notice. thanks in advance dan

    I had trouble sleeping a while ago and my wife bought some lavender spray which you put on your pillow at night. She also bought a lavender plant which was beside the bed. Might be a placebo but I certainly started sleeping much better

  8. After a bit of advice. Been in my new build for over a year now. The garden used to be an argrictural field, so when we moved in we had it levelled, stone picked and seeded. Generally come up really well, however one half of it is quite patchy, even after a year. The other side is nice thick green grass. im thinking it is an issue with the soil, as it appears a little harder and more cohesive (clay/silt). I don’t want to dig it all up or cover with a thick layer of good topsoil, so wondered if there is anything else I can do to fill the patches? not after a show piece lawn as my kids and dog put pay to that. Thanks in advance

    Omega or Rolex

    Still toying with getting a luxury watch, the sort I can wear regularly but also one that won’t lose a shed load of money. Hence the question..... i really fancy an omega speed master moon watch but it’s not that much more money to buy an entry level type Rolex, oyster perpetual or maybe an air king. Which do you think will be best at holding value on the long run? thanks
  10. Looking for some advise before I go to see an accountant. I’ve got a second house which is a mortgaged buy to let. The house and mortgage is solely in my name as I owned it before I met the missus and subsequently got married. the recent changes in interest which can be offset against the income plus some fortune in work circumstances mean I am now getting battered in tax. My wife only works part time so has a few k spare of her tax free allowance. I’d like to use a deed of trust so that she can benefit from half the rental income and in doing so save me paying 40% tax on that half! What are the restrictions in terms of using a DOT and paying SDLT? ive searched the net but get mixed information, hence hoping one of you knowledgeable lot on here will be able to help. I’d like to keep the mortgage in my name too rather than have to remortgage jointly. From what I’ve seen on the net if I kept the mortgage in my name my wife will not need to pay SDLT, but not sure if this is correct. Our home is also mortgaged jointly, as not sure if this will affect SDLT. thanks in advance for any help dan
  11. Could’ve picked a better weekend but at least I wasn’t there today. Meant to be a chilled couple of days with wife but without kids! the only good thing about the french, they don’t put up with any rubbish from their government. If we had their mentality there’d be riots on the streets now over this farsical brexit and I dare say more would be getting done

  14. My Mum and Dad have paid for me and my dad to go to Ypres for a weekend at the end of september for my birthday. I’m really looking forward to visiting the World War One sites, particularly with this year being the hundredth anniversary. any of you guys been before and have any reccomendations of places to visit? My dad retired last year from the RAF after 39yrs service. He’s been over to this area visiting the war sites numerous times so knows the main places to visit. Just hoping someone has found some little gems off the beaten track so it’s new for both of us to visit. Be happy to travel a couple of hours around Ypres thanks in advance
