    I am looking at buying a property that would need to be taken back to the shell and made good. Hasn't been touched in thirty years. Rewiring the whole place, possible plumbing updates, does have central heating, knocking one wall down between kitchen and dining room. It is a two storey three bedroom semi detached house. Size is approx one hundred and twelve square metres. If I am looking for a medium finish how much would it cost? And how long would it take?

    Are there any real risks, problems or dangers associated with not having my chimney cleaned? What about if I don’t clean my chimney as often as I should?

    What is the best construction design software for amateurs? I am a DIY enthusiast and I’d like to design some possible homemade projects as well as simply out of interest to design up hypothetical projects that I probably won’t ever build. I’ve looked into software such as actiTime, FreeCAD, LibreCAD and OpenSCAD. What would you recommend as the best software?

    I would like to have a 12 square metre garage added to the side of my house. How much should I expect to pay for this if I am based in the general London area? I’d like to know how much it will cost in total between any supply, labour and waste removal costs, if possible. What sort of quotes should I expect? And as for the waste removal cost, is this something that the extension builders can be paid to take care of or will I need to hire another company?

    I am based in Scotland and I’d like to know what the average cost is for a professional to insulate my house fully? My family and I have a semi-detached house of average size. How beneficial is insulation? Our home is not very well insulated as it is. How much can we expect to save on energy bills? How helpful is a fully insulated house for the environment?

    How much will it cost to have the chimney stack on my house replaced? I am looking to find out both the labour and supply costs. Is this a quick job or will it take more than a day? Thanks

    Asked by Admin on 21st Aug 2020

    I have an old chimney and it hasn’t been used in I’d say about fifteen years now. I suddenly thought that for this winter, I’d like to have a chimney fire again for warmth. Is there any reason I should be concerned in using a chimney after so long? Is there a risk that dangerous substances have built up and will fill the air if I used a chimney after so many years? It’s just been on my mind and there’s still a while to go until the cold winter months, so I figured it would be good to find out first!

    Asked by Admin on 21st Aug 2020

    What do extension builders charge each hour and per day in Swindon? Is it any different from the rates offered in other nearby spots like Reading or Bath? If I found that the rate is significantly higher in Swindon, could I just hire someone from Bath and cover their travel costs? Is this allowed?
