We are incorporating an outbuildings into our house and need to separate the outbuilding in half as it is too big. We were going to use a good strong wooden frame, OSB on the outside, then insulate, then placo on the inside. Someone has told us that you can no longer use wooden frames in placo walls. Is that true?

Why are there No earthing cable's in bedroom socket's but are present elsewhere in most properties.This issue came to light when two local properties where put up for sale and the New sale survey highlighted the problem and it also stated that before the sale of the house's this had to be rectified so that the relevant paperwork could be updated. Has anyone else come across this problem and what options are there apart from rewiring. Ps You can easily check the socket's in your home by looking to see if there is a metal earth pin on the socket, if you only have two holes for the plug to go in then the chances are you too do not have a earth supply too.thanks in advance Pat

Can any of you knowledgeable  peeps recommend a skip hire company serving Vienne (Montmorillon/Le Blanc)?   Google has not been my friend.  Alternatively a man-and-van (pref. French-speaking) service which will take stuff to the local dechatterie - there's a couple of Ducato loads of metal/plastic rubbish I need to get rid of.  Many thanks

I have a requirement to replace the aging gate on the front of my property at just over 3 m wide and 1m 82 tall,  we are experiencing real issues getting gates that A) We Like and B) without the need to sell a Kidney to pay for them.Having Tried the usual suspects of DIY Chains 3m, Brico, Bricolage, Leroy Merlin etc etc I am now considering just ripping the gates out and banging up a wall instead as we have rear access to park the vehicles. but before I filling the planning permission, one last throw of the dice to see if anyone can recommend or suggest were or maybe if someone out there in Anglo land can point me in the right direction were I can buy Study gates from (Pref Woodern), I am not overly impressed with sheets of tin shaped like a gate or great hordes of white plastic cobbled into a gate.The Aforementioned gates must be solid (Not a farm gate), as we would not be wanting the animals to escape, ideally 2 solid gates and a matching side gate.Whilst we are over in the UK earning a crust a friend is staying at the house in Dept 16, so access for Devis / Quotes / Actual work would not be an issue, we keep a full stock of Yorkshire Tea just in case!!!!!This really is last chance saloon

Hi, can anyone offer some advice please?I would like to add a room thermostat and a programmer onto our Chappee Sempra Ecocontrol/SP OB. Although the boiler is quite old I hope it should be possible to control the heat to the house and also switch the heating or water on or off at certain times. It would also be useful to have a holiday type mode so that we could set it for when we are away. Can anyone give advice on a suitable system and offer some hints on how to fit it? I have the Notice D'installation et D'utilisation for the boiler but would like a little more advice before I proceed.
