Just wait until I've got my 8 piece drum kit in there
Damn it, The only have Anthracite, White or Buff no clear.
Correct, I got 2 tubes of buff as its quite a close match to the original wood colour.
But will show on outside as Sikkens filter 7 LIGHT OAK is not anywhere near
Its going to be low down through, and you're coating the bearers with black DPM?
True, thought about it.. wait do you mean external ring bearers or internal floor bearers?
Thought you were going to coat the external bearers with DPM, so first seal top and bottom of bearers with EB825, I'd then drill some holes in the bearers for ventilation the coat concrete and these bearers with the DPM.
yeh had this in mind, didn't know if the DPM would have bad effects on the wood, if not I'm wondering why I've not seen this recommended around the web. To me, it seems like a good idea, but then I agreed on a concrete base with builders lol
Also, don't think the whole internal concrete needs DPM? Maybe just a meter in all around?
I'd just DPM the outside bit of the concrete, may be do the inside concrete against the external bearers too. Then sit the internal bearers on a DPC. This is what I used, you probably won't need it this wide https://www.screwfix.com/p/capital-valley-plastics-ltd-damp-proof-course-black-150mm-x-30m/78665
Blimey, one of those days.. Why does sealant come with nozzle? Which one fits it?
You mean why doesn't sealant come with a nozzle? It does, or at least should.
Why doesn't it come with nozzle?
According to young lad behind counter none have in stock at ts
Oh, I'll check when I get home.
Sorted, they should come with nozzle, bloody lad behind counter sent me wild goose chase. Went to another branch and got the nozzles free of charge.
Squirted some stuff bottoms of bearers and run my finger along to push in nicely (hope that's ok) this was 5 hours ago.. raining here now will it mess the stuff up?
Should be ok, fingers crossed.
Any tips on guttering, my fascia is slightly angled. What would one do?
Ah guttering. Looked into that and yes, your facia is slightly angled, mine won't be
The facia can be put straight with some 2x2 cut at whatever angle is needed.
I've decided to forego guttering, cant see anything that looks good and will mount appropriately. Anyhoo, you'd need to remove the facia to fit guttering wouldn't you?
This is what Skinners Sheds recommend/sell, looks pretty carp if you ask me.
Edit: This is how you'd probably want to do it, note, no facia board.
