Explain? Don't just make comments without justifying them or you'll never be taken seriously.

Re: Has anyone gone for one of these Free Photovoltaic insta

Thanks for the replies. I keep thinking what have I got to lose so I may just get them to come and check out the roof - I can always say no if I don't like their T&Cs

Has anyone gone for one of these Free Photovoltaic installs

Can't make my mind up whether to apply for it or not. Looks like a win-win situation but I can't believe there is no downside. My roof is just about perfect so it's just a case of deciding.

Cheers, Rob.

Re: Walnut tree

We have one near us but I have no idea when you should pick the nuts and how to prepare them. They look almost like naked conker shells if that makes sense? When do you pick them and how do you remove the skin?

Cheers, Rob.

Re: Anyone here hunt?

Be aware that if you are in the UK it is illegal to hunt with Bow or Crossbow. It is also illegal to own or buy hunting tips for your arrows or bolts. Hence why my Shotgun application is currently in. I have owned and shot a recurve for years and not beign allowed to hunt with it is a but frustratin...

Thanks for all the help guys. Thomzo is correct. We have no chimney.

Has anyone fitted their own log burner?

We've been quoted over £3500 to install our log burner. It's a simple job - straight out the back of the stove, through the back wall of the house and up the side to near the ridge height. That's not including the stove or hearth. I reckon I can buy the required pipework for about £600 so the extra ...

Re: Wood burner for old pallets?

Thanks for the help. I think we've now settled on a broseley asia. Gives us the soapstone we want (aesthetics mostly) at a fairly sensible price. It's just the fitting price that's really going to hurt.

Re: Wood burner for old pallets?

Thanks for the reply. I think i'll be supplementing the pallets with whatever else I can get hold off. The thermometer sounds good.

Has anyone used a soapstone clad stove? I like the idea of it acting like a big space heater long after the fire has gone out.

Wood burner for old pallets?

Hi, i'm new here. Moving to a new house in Cambs and one of the first jobs is to install some form of log burner. I have a fairly large supply of free wood pallets and will ideally burn them. Has anyone burnt these before? I was looking at a very efficient Jydepejsen stove but it appears that these ...
