    Cheers all - we've just had a load of old radiators removed prior to plastering walls etc. so got onto the plumber who did that and he's gonna take look when he's in tomorrow.

    So we were woken up at 5 this morning, when the heating came on, by a loud squealing coming from the boiler, and the gauge on 0 bar. We've had to turn it off for now. A cursory Google suggests it might be the pump? What's the damage to fix that?

    It's a Worcester Bosch Greenstar combo fitted in 2009 if that makes a difference.

    Would planning permission be required in replacing like for like (or in fact with something smaller?)

    For use, the idea is for it to be a place to keep my bikes safe and dry (and we have more than just this to protect them, a locked gate and looks on the bikes) and for turbo sessions, and keeping plants and other outdoorsy stuff.

    For lifespan, I'd like it to be in sufficiently good nick in five years time when we come to sell that it doesn't form a problem and maybe adds value.

    A question for you all ... We now a Victorian end-of-terrace and have a wooden/single pane glass 'lean-to' that runs the length of our kitchen and bathroom in the gap between our house and our neighbours. It is rickety as fuck and rotting apart, and is, from what I can tell, held up by hanging basket brackets.

    We want (need) to replace it, and are not sure what we are looking for. A conservatory would be expensive, and it is more a covered outdoor space than indoor, since the drains for the house are inside it. Would a modern, treated timber building (such as customtimberbuildingsltd.co.u­k/Photos.html#green_houses) make more sense? What do folk think?

    A lot of folk I know have one and only have good things to say (unlike the smoke alarm) - I decided to hold off until closer to winter, as it might get a hardware revision after being the same for 18 months.

    Is it normal to receive all of the past deeds, mortgage and other documents for your house once you complete? We got a huge package from the solicitor yesterday which has documents, deeds etc dating back to 1880 when the house was first built.

    They didn't do stuff by halves back then, half the stuff is beautiful.

    The most terrifying emerging trend is that people seem to think that a single party has to get a majority of votes to be legitimate and lead parliament, meaning a coalition formed by whichever of the tories and labour win the least seats will get mauled in the media.

    In my mind a coalition is more democratic, since it reflects a more even representaion of voter preference. Is that not the case?
