Re: New Electricity Connection.

the "smallest" (cheapest) contract that you can have, and bear in mind that it will be a new meter so it WILL trip if you go over it, is 2.2kw - sounds like alot, but a kettle while the microwave is on, and click.. darkness.

the one at 4.65kw is what I would recommend, at the very least.

If you are not restricted by planning or other regulations Insulated roof sheets would easily span that ( Flat Roof Option obviously) for very little effort and cost.

Re: Leroy Merlin/Bauhaus Delivery

There must be a store locally to you ?? Why have something so big delivered from so far away? the price difference cannot possible cover the delivery charges?

What happens when the toilet doesnt work, or they deliver the wrong tiles? what a nightmare.. rather you than me :lol:

I didn't opt to that as I move around and would forget to update it, but although at the moment I spend most of the year out of Andalucia I do have property there so could do these things in the region if it was advantageous. i...
