    We have a living room that is 13'8"x9'9" with floor joists that attach to the neighbouring house, so that when the neighbours children are jumping around we can feel the vibration in our living room. Is it possible to remove and replace the joists so that they run the opposite way and if so how much is this likely to cost approximately? Thanks

    I’m removing a conservatory soon leaving a painted area of outside wall. How do you remove this paint.

    I wonder if you can help me. We're looking to buy a house, where I can see an improvement could be made, dividing a bedroom. but would need to create the access to the 2nd bedroom by recreating the landing. There seems to be the space to do this by moving walls of a 3rd bedroom. I'm just wondering how easy this all is. Looks like its move 4 internal walls, 3 new doorways, but are there watch outs in terms of lighting, carpets. If one wall is load bearing (not sure if it is) is that simple to get around or an issue etc, just really looking for advice on complexity and cost ? Thank you

    We are doing a small extension (4m2) and wondered if you can guide us on depth of footings necessary for a single storey extension, with flat roof, on a concrete slab. There are two perpendicular walls to build as it joins the main house. And would you suggest an expansion strip at the wall joint or Key in to existing brickwork? Thankyou for your help.

    Hi I am planning to replace my existing conservatory with a single storey extension. The conservatory is just within our boundary but there is a approx 2m level difference, supported by a retaining wall. The existing conservatory foundation is not deep enough and building controls have said I can’t put any additional load onto the retaining wall - what are my options? Thanks

    What can you do if a fireplace opening is too big? Is this easy to fix? How can you make a fireplace smaller? Cheers.
