    Cheap shit is no longer designed to last 10 years, a few years at the most.

  • FUZZY replied to the topic Kitchens in the forum DIY 4 years, 11 months ago

    Going through this at the moment.

    All depends on what you want.low cost modern kitchens are designed to be replaced every couple of years based on the latest trends.the carcasses are poor quality and will not last the abuse in kitchen environments. That is why they are “ cheap””.

    So figure out how much you want to spend and then work from there…[Read more]

  • FUZZY replied to the topic Ground Source Heat Pumps in the forum DIY 5 years, 8 months ago

    Simple stuff like thick curtains, draft excluders and substantial underlay can make a big difference. If you can manage it, move the radiators from the usual, maximum inefficiency position beneath the windows to internal walls where a substantial portion of the heat generated won’t be immediately leeched outside.

    Friend of mine has this in their house. At some point you have to replace the whole roof – tiles and everything. So it’s a cost you’ll face at some point – or have to deal with when you sell the house. So you may as well factor it in now. If it’s prohibitively expensive to do it now, it won’t be any different in the future.

  • FUZZY replied to the topic Charging Your Child Rent in the forum Chit Chat 6 years ago

    When I started on YTS at 16, I turned over 1/3 of my allowance to my parents. It was made very clear that this was not “board and lodging” and didn’t come close to reimbursing them for the outlay of keeping me in the house.

    It was a contribution to the household expenses, and I was also expected to help out: washing the pots most nights, helping…[Read more]

  • FUZZY replied to the topic Campsite Etiquette in the forum Chit Chat 6 years, 2 months ago

    What’s the etiquette at moderately popular wild camping site? Do the late owls defer to the early sleepers etc? Like a bothy, where you cannot expect people to be quiet to facilitate your wish to sleep? Been at bothies where groups are drinking and singing (not in a scary way) and that is a risk you accept when using a bothy.
