Hi to all, Can anyone suggest the best type of insulation to use to reduce sound as much as possible between what shall be a party wall dividing two bedrooms. The wall itself is approx 3" wide with 13mm plasterboard on either side. Thanks in advance.

Hi we have a newish woodburner which was fitted a couple of years ago with the correect chimney lining flue, however the flue has corroded at the poing it joins the woodburner and so it leaks smoke when lit. Is there anything like a collar we can put around it? or do we need to call in an 'expert'? thanks

I am anticipating a problem with the company who recently fitted a complete new insert and stainless steel chimney withing the original stone chimney space. I am about to pay nearly 3,000€ for the work and the result is far worse than my original foyer. The reason is that the new system has not been fitted with a metal or rockwool 'plate above the insert ( the original system had such a metal plate) and so the insert heats the chimney and not the house. If the firm want extra money for the additional work/refuse to do additional work, to who do I turn please? I am aware that there is no CAB in France, but perhaps there is a system which allows an initial free consultation, before proceedings can take place. Thanks for any help or dvice with this!

Can anyone point me in the direction of an on-line supplier similar to Maplins, RS Components or Screwfix here in France as I am getting fed up of paying for very high delivery charges. I have found a supplier of tools etc debonix.fr but they don't supply say button cells, computer cable. connectors etc. Any help gratefully received.

Hi.  We live in Cluny, and have had nothing but problems with SFR.  Have been researching other providers.  Orange doesn't seem to have great reputation either.  Is anyone out there using free or numericable?  Is so, can you comment on your experience of their services and reliability please? Many thanks. Norman

A few nights ago I heard something moving in the attic above our bedroom.  It's difficult to get up there, plus I hate spiders but I mentioned it to a neighbour who said 'C'est un loir!'  She described a loir as being a delightful creature, rather like a squirrel that, is known to inhabit attics.  On checking in my dictionary I find the translation of 'loir' is dormouse, though I'm certain this creature must be the size of a small cat at least, as a mouse makes very little noise. Does anyone have any knowledge of these loirs, what they really are, and how to keep them away?  My friend did add that they hate the smell of bay leaves, so when I can find the time I'll cut a branch and face the spiders and the dust...
