Superb, ta for that.

They'll always be a colour difference on the bricks as you say due to age etc. Especially as LBC is no longer around.

At least you weren't trying to match imperial bricks, like we have to fir the old railway viaducts and bridges  O_o it's a flaming nightmare. We end up having to have them made!

Good to hear the roofing system is reasonably easy. As I'm going to have sky lights it'll be a bit trickier but I'm sure we'll manage. A bit of an idea on the time frame is also good to have. Luckily the weather held for you.

Ah the London buffs were imperial and a bit tricky to work around as they were wider, longer and taller than the IBSTOCK alternative metric version. We reused the original bricks on the front to keep everything looking smart :)Weather has been really kind to us. We have literally been working on the garage 8 til 5 from boxing day until yesterday. I'm glad for a break this weekend and back to work for a rest next week :lol:.

Got gutters on this morning and looking much smarter.

Some bits arrived in the week ;)I have 6 x 6ft twin battens with led daylight bulbs, all the electrical bits and 5 x 25kg containers of KA tanking slurry in white. Oh insulated electric roller door is being built as we speak and should arrive in a couple weeks.

The plan is to get the electrics sorted and then tank the walls. I'm going to make the garage useable at the moment and have lots of metal shelving to temporary sort out tools. I'm going to finish the insulation later in the year when it's a bit drier. The garden is really the next priority to clear and get rid of the summer house and shed. At least I can start working on the Golf :D

As you get stuff sorted in record time, and to good effect, is there any chance of you nipping to London and sorting out Parliament……….. I've got a pocketful of good hard slaps I can lend you.  :ocf_emoticons__icon_biggrin:

Sorry guys Washington called and they need some advice building a wall or something  :lol:To be honest my dad has been the brains of the operation, he's a very talented chap and I have been mostly labouring and learning.

I think the wife will have something to say if I don't finish with the garage soon, the more time I work on the garage the more I end up spending from the garden fund and patio slabs aren't cheap  :lol:Almost ready to start on the Golf. Just need some light in the garage to start doing a clear up and finding all of my lovely parts  :wub:

Ha ha, i'm no builder.

From doing some research I decided to go this route, someone please correct me if I'm wrong but this is why I decided to use tanking slurry.

Normal way to insulate a single skin wall would be damp proof membrane, battens insulation between and plaster board. I've heard if condensation builds behind the damp proof membrane it runs down the sheet to the floor causing pools of water, worse case soggy plasterboard.

Tanking the wall means no water can pass through at all, then I can dot and dab insulated plasterboard direct to the wall. Another bonus is I get more garage space as battens would space the walls out making the width narrower.

It will also look brighter in the room being white until I get the board on and look pretty  :lol:

Got the lights fitted in the old section. Just temporarily connected up to check everything is working and boy they are bright :lol:.

I've got to tank that section of the room first before the consumer unit and sockets are fastened to the wall. Dad is cutting the bricks flush with the wall tomorrow on either side which means I can make some room in the old bit to push the Golf in and then finish the piers on Saturday.

Should get the final 4 lights up in the new bit  and it should be super bright :D

Got some slurry on today :DPretty hard work to get an even finish but got there in the end. I plan to give it a coat of paint once dried but certainly has brightened the place up.

Next I cleared the room for the next phase. Plenty of room to finish the piers off ;) IMG_20190119_135530781.jpg IMG_20190119_135538271.jpg IMG_20190119_135544697.jpg

Even with the nose of the Golf a foot back from the new bit I have at least 2.5 metres behind :D IMG_20190119_124023000.jpg

I have plasterboard and insulation for the ceiling arriving this week and 4 x 1 metre wall cabinets for the part where the Golf is in.

Got the other half started today. Piers are going in tomorrow so will put the second coat on when they are up.

First fix electrics should be mostly done this week. Saturday going to insulate and board the new bit so dad can get the lights up the following week and then the following weekend remove the ceiling lights insulate and board and should be done :DOh the garage door should be due end of next week or early the following so that will finish it off :) IMG_20190120_142452048.jpg IMG_20190120_142500274.jpg IMG_20190120_142507191.jpg IMG_20190120_142512966.jpg

Got the insulation, moisture membrane and board up in the new section and gave the garage a good clean up. This is only temporary, the lights are going up in the new section this week so needed to make plenty of room as once this is done i will move the Golf forward to complete the old part.

The new roller door arrived on Thursday so going to get that up on Saturday.
