This is a really interesting concept. Prefabricated houses designed by internationally renowned architects at a reasonable price.. Only catch is you’ll have to find / buy a suitable plot.

Clothes rails.

Missus has moved into mine, already lacked storage space in my place as it is, and had over-filled my clothes rail (http://www.argos.co.uk/product/1717639) with just my stuff.

Looking to get a bigger/longer one - also not sure I entirely see the benefit of the double rail models as they seem to close together to hang twice the stuff on them. Can anyone recommend anything? Thanks

I’ve got a couple of habitat rails (called alexis) not sure if they make them anymore but they’ve lasted me ages and through loads of different moves, really nice and sturdy. Might be worth checking eBay/gumtree for old shop stock too? I’ve picked up a long rail from a shop near me closing for next to nothing.

those things would for sure just collapse if full, If you not bothered about the look of them you could buy rails from somewhere like more plan

Inside my wardrobe we have a structure made from Kee systems components which was an easy solution to build a heavy duty double height rail to the specific size of a space.

I concur. Forget any rail you can get on the highstreet. Always shite.

Get one from a shop fitters.

Bit of a weird one but if anyone likes these succulents I've got about 5 sprouters (they pop up all the time!), large enough to pot on, have given a fair few away already to neighbours and friends. I'll shout post if UK.

the sprouts from those Chinese money plants are surprisingly resilient. I have passed on a few in the past too..

where is good for rugs? not super expensive tat rugs… something in the £200 range?

1965 Hille produced Robin Day Leo chair finally back from the restorers and couldn’t be happier. Ugly vinyl cover replaced with Gerd Hay Edie fabric as used by Robin Day and five star swivel base replaced with original production sleigh legs
