+1 this was suggested a few weeks back and got a fair bit of support

Ghost Estate Demolition for Dummies might be more topical at the moment!

As a pinster soon to be bells deep in rubble I second this.

I’ve changed the OP and added a few more of the renovation threads to make it easy to track them.

Mods: Any chance of adding a renovation area on the pin?


I’ve been copying and saving the hyperlinks for different threads recently as I’d be intending to have a house at some stage and have found some of the topics quite interesting. Would be handy to have them all in the one place and not just on my google drive.

PM me with the links if you find any relevant renovation threads and Ill stick them in the OP.

PM sent

Edit: Thanks for the effort TI. I’ll just save the link to this thread now :wink:

OP updated thanks Dubhgeannain!

I’m not sure if fair well on that after the next pin drinks meet!

Warning, efficiency pedant alert…
I wonder why they put the double height step at the very top left, waste of wood

What about this?

@Gilroy that type of under stairs storage is discussed here: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=61322

Link also above in the OP tracking these type of threads.

Greywater Recycling added to OP

PM me if you find any other relevant Renovation Threads and I’ll add them to the OP



4 more threads added to OP.

Great Idea TI, very useful. Thanks for creating this thread of threads.

Thanks TI.
Much appreciated. Really.

I think this one is worth adding to the list - it’s new-build really though:

Added to OP


There is a lot of useful renovation threads here see OP
