serious note - if anyone has any sheetrock or similar drywall jointing compound I'd appreciate a yogurt/cheese sized tub of it. Mixed with a bit of paint its great for grainfilling. I was using some fine surface filler but it didnt bind in the pores as well. Having bought some proper grainfiller there recently I've realised how poor the fine surface filler was relative to comercial grainfiller or the homebrew stuff I made with sheetrock

I'd set the fucking spiders on them the haterz.

Looking at that video the first thing I though was 'she has great equipment' - meaning her actual shed and er tools.
Really nice drill press

But you know the videos are all gonna be lads telling/'advising' her how to do things better like that will impress her

She must have used some debonder on those forms cos I've seen most lads fuck that up, and the melamine sticking to the epoxy for dear life

So I'm thinking about short term fixes to get through winter here - our place is gas fired heating and on political grounds alone UTM is already saying 'shir we just wont heat the house this winter'.*

*this means he'll have an electric blow heater at his knee for 4 months and i'll come home to an icebox every day.

Best case scenario for the place would be both types of solar with an air to water system as it's an default bungalow with near perfect southern aspect.

however money isn't gonna allow this this year.

Short term i was thinking of putting 2-3 electric heaters on timer and thermostat across the place.

This is insanity isn't it?

What is UTM?

What do you reckon a system like this would cost?


I mean, I'd be politically fine with using gas til you transition. But everyone's gonna have a different take on that.

I usually only heat the room I am in during the winter. I don't see the point of heating the whole house for just one person.

Re choice of electric heater, in case you haven't already considered it, the nicest heat is from the oil filled - there's no smell or dryness or noise like there can be with the ones with the element. They're also pretty efficient if you're timing them on for long enough to come up to full heat, they'll stay banging out the heat for a long time after they're switched off. Also pretty safe unsupervised, if you're looking at timing them on twice a day to keep an empty room in good condition.

For very quickly heating up a human, the halogen heaters are very light on power to run. And available super cheap. They won't do much for your house though.

I don't know what the power ask is like from a dehumidifier, but it might be worth it.

IDK what 'both types of solar' or 'air to water' mean but I was recently talking about photovoltaics to someone who did a self-install (well, not self-self, electrician and roofer involved) and all the equipment for 6 panels I think cost a little over 2k (could be 3k these days?). The electrician and roofer were something like €350 each for the day. That's half what a company are quoting me.

Plus his is better because he put a microinverter on every panel so if one goes out the others continue to work. Mine would be in a string with one inverter, so if there's a problem with one there'll be no electricity.

+1 on the oil filled

This sounds not only understandable technically, but very doable.
