    What TV/DVDs are you watching?

    Anyone else watching Ghosts on BBC? A very enjoyable & well written sitcom about a young couple inheriting a grand house in disrepair and inhabited by generations of spirits who restlessly squabble in an abandoned country home. Very funny! https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8594324/

    I've gone and confused the words ’Yakuza’ with 'Jacuzzi’ ... Now I'm in hot water with the Japanese Mafia!

    Jokes, old or new

    I've discovered it's bad etiquette when out having a meal, that it's not polite to lean over to the next table and ask, "Are you finished with that?" Especially to a guy breaking up with his girlfriend...

    Stevie Wonder - Song Review (A Greatest Hits Collection)
  14. Thanks for the very helpful pointers. I'd hoped you'd pitch in. Internally we would gain little living space but would improve bathroom sizes and an extra toilet. My main objective was to tidy up the rear. Looking at it critically, costs would prohibit the build as new footings would need to be installed, these would be dug by hand as no rear vehicle access so very costly. Also, looking at the roof pitch, I don't think I could extend the rear as I can't gain extra height of roofline due to next floor's window header. I've looked at instead removing the horrible glass roof that gives it a conservatory look and will be investigating the newer plastic envirotiles with extra insulation. Possibly installing velux in roof x2 & bi-fold doors. Internally taking advice re removing a wall, and reducing bedroom count by 1 and gaining another bathroom and en-suite hopefully. We can always increase bedroom count to 4 again with loft extension if required and still come in under what an extension outside would've cost. Party wall advice is good so will be speaking with a structural engineer as I would like to remove chimneys if poss whilst doing other alterations. Thanks again!
