sorry i havent been around much this last month but i have been busy building an extension on the back of my house

we did have the old type conservatory the aluminium fram and glass something like a large green house
so i had allread dug the foundations and built the base so took that down and built up from there waiting for half tiles to finish the roof
and at the moment waiting for some plaster to harden so i can finish putting the dry wall liner in
then getting somebody in to plaster it i cannot do plastering

wiring is ready to go then need to do floor and pipework for the central heating

here are a few pics the garden is like a builders yard lol

had to do white windows could not afford the wood effect like we have

Looking good David. We want to extend our house in the future.

Remortgaging our house to extend still works out far cheaper than selling and buying a bigger place :)
i am being abit of a [email protected] here i havent had planing permission for this because my thoughts is why should i pay to have the privelidge to built on my property

and as a saving
i estimate this has cost me up to now £1600
and when finished will have cost me close to £2000

a saving of at least £8000


plus i know what has gone in to the build i know the spec's etc

You shouldn't need planning permission, I think you're allowed to extend by 10% without it, the only thing you would have needed was Building Control authorization to make sure you stick to the building regs but hey as long as you get along with your neighbors then you shouldn't get any problems.

heard this the other night on tv thought id pass it on m8
if you own your property it will affect you when you come to sell it without a planning certificate

So that's where you have been hiding ;)

Its looking very nice dave i know how these projects can get in the way of everything and good fun aswell.

But hate to bring bad news but rat is right the plasterboard is on back to front m8.

I am not sure if you could plaster onto the back or not ?

But if they are screwed on that is easy to change but if you have dot and dabbed it well thats a little tricky.

Speak to a plasterer m8y they will know better... maybe there is some kinda sheet you could just stick on ?

The plasterboard looks the right way round if you are getting the walls skimmed, which I'm assuming you are.
