Can anyone recommend any good plant pots?
Nothing specific in mind but looking for some small plant pots that aren't too expensive.
I've got one of these but want a few other different ones…

Anyone got secondary glazing? Always hated the look of it, but heard its a lot better than it was these days?

I had hoped to keep the single glazed sash windows at my place and get them refurbished. But as its a conversion I need to meet certain standards for regs. Read about getting double glazed units fitted into current frames but have heard they don't last very long.

Any other options, other than new windows?

You might as well do it properly first time round. Aside from the regs windows are such a big part of the aesthetics of your gaff. Could you get them reglazed with this?

Yeah its listed so still to get the CO's opinion. Its more for the character of the original windows I wanted to keep them other than anything else. Although replacement would be like for like in style.

Yeah thats the type of replacement glazing I was told about, but I have heard stories of it not lasting well and getting condensation in between within a year in some cases. Mainly because the frames were never desinged for thicker glass.

Ventrolla look like the do some sort of replacement where the housings are left and the glazing/glazing bar section is replaced as a section.

Got double glazed sash windows in a lot of my house last year when the old ones were being replaced, can hardly tell the difference lookswise and they've been fine so far.

A fucking shitload Laughing out loud

Was done by a specialist company on a window by window basis (some only needed some restoring and wasn't much point in thinking about double glazing etc) but it wasn't cheap, will check and pm you

Moved into new gaff yesterday. Also interested in secondary glazing as covenants don't allow change of windows & to change glass would require thicker frame as glass is original to shouse from 1964 which is 3mm thickness & not available anymore (min4mm now iirc)

Got huge amount of work to do internally but started moving stuff out of storage . House is modernist & architect raised the house on 'stilts' to take advantage of the view

I love it that even Lanz's house has to do the house equivalent of standing on a stool Laughing out loud

cheers guys, will do soon - it's a bit of a mess atm. Should be getting 4 vintage Robin Day pieces back from reupholster in the next week & had a quote today to get my Vitsoe stuff fitted £665 Eek i'm sure thats much more than before. Still going to have a whole wall of storage + bits in other rooms.Going to ask them to also price up a new compressed system to make a wall divider to break up the open plan space living area .Similar to this but only a few bits on display to leave sight lines to keep the sense of openness intact
