Tondelver House - Shipping Container Build

Plenty far enough. Gut busting work digging the garden.

Great work on the doors. Agree wholeheartedly with your choices.

Yep looks good. So satisfying when the final coat goes on. It is, as you said, no more looking at it as something that still needs doing.

I feel your pain. Wind is a hazard when you’re doing it yourself. Rain just spoils everything. Just as things start to dry out, down it comes again. Rinse and…

Timber partition wall

If its permanent, then no it needs to be connected to the frame.

Choose another cladding profile. Plenty of nice ones available.

Underfloor insulation

Probably less waste installing parallel. And as you say, less joins that could impact performance.

Decent amount done for a weekend.

That’s what I meant to say. Bad quality is the new normal.

Aussieta was being sarcastic I believe i.e. sloppy work.
Why is the valley flashing not the same colour as the tiles?

Want to install underfloor heating with Burbank Homes

Has to be done before tiling, by the builder or tiler, that’s the only really realistic option.

No family downstairs bathroom?

Yes a tricky question. Personally I’d keep the ensuite private but that’s just me. Years ago houses had only 1.

Sorry no, I think it was in someone’s home build thread. Pretty bad, they had videos of the noise.

3rd for me. But then every window in my house is exactly the same shape, style, size and location ;-)

There’s been big threads about this type of issue. If you have access to the joists you could find where it’s coming from and maybe fix it. It is a…

You’ve got 2 dissimilar windows on the second floor which look (to me) stranger than a window which will be covered by the front patio.

It’s a building defect. Is it your house? Won’t affect the structural integrity at all but will be annoying as all....

Is this slab within normal limits

It still needs to be attached to something. Walls can’t float above the ground. Have aloof into the gap and see if there’s anything supporting the wall.

I assume an external wall? The bottom plate should be attached to the slab with a minimum amount of overhand. If it’s not attached at all then it is non…
