Anyone on here had G Plan furniture before? Saw two sofas in John Lewis that were quite nice but just wondered what the quality is like long term etc?

If you want to feel an actual noticeable difference in the temperature of the floor you need to use 150 mm celotex. Rigid insulation is $$$ so if you want to save a few quid get some rolls of decent nylon string (MUST be nylon and not cotton) and a staple gun and zig-zag the string across the gaps in the joists creating a bed for the soft insulation to sit on top off. Will save you a fortune and do He same thing as rigid insulation.

If you do go with rigid fix it by nailing or screwing through the sheet itself into the joist to hold it in place. Joists move a lot so it needs to be fixed securely. Also, fuck celotex, it's the brand that everyone knows so it's always more expensive. Call a decent independent builders merchant and get a price for the generic rigid insulation they stock. Will be cheaper than travis Perkins fo' sho'

Whatever is cheapest and offers the best insulation properties.

Anyone on here doing an interior design course etc - I've a flat in north London I intend to modernise, new bathroom, lighting, other bits that could make a good little project for a portfolio and I'd chuck a few £ in too (it won't be like some of the amazing renovations on here, no kevin mccloud stuff, more sarah beeney but without being pregnant)

I have 2 x brand new 65.5 x 35 Vitsoe shelves in off white/aluminium sides with 39.5 e-tracks (1 x pair) if anyone wants to buy let me know. New, never unwrapped etc. **SOLD**



Need a 65.5 x 16 metal shelf for a bathroom should anyone have a spare.

Also looking for cabinet makers who can work wonders with ply for kitchen doors/poss hack on to ikea units, require sliding door units bespoke made too. Anyone had anything bespoke from ply? Assuming there's different grades/materials.



+ need a small uten silo in white should anyone know of any online offers/sales etc

Dee, for cabinet making you only want to consider Baltic birch plywood or if you're mega mega baller and/or concerned that moisture will be a massive issue marine ply.

Drop me a PM telling me exactly what you're after. Might be able to help you out or will know somebody who can (location dependent).

I like this one because it reminds you what to do when you're in the kitchen:



This one is also good because it makes getting a book to read a little bit more challenging and reminds you that you should always love life even despite retarded decorating trends that your woman puts in your house. You can tell this home is full of reading afficianados and book worms that go their own way (with books as well as fashionable shit in their house) because you can make out a Dan Brown novel:
