    I know. I won’t do that.

    Our basement workshop (100m2) stays pretty temperate all year round with no heating and a single glazed drafty glazed wall at one end. Even now I only get cold if I stay still for too long - good motivation!

    I’d stick with a cheap, temporary heating option.

    Just used a pointing trowel thing. Tried a sponge but it left a texture I didn’t like. I only did the dark bits in the first photo btw - the smoother polished looking bit in the middle was already there.

    It’s probably the same diameter of copper, but I don’t touch gas (or plumbing stuff). It’s defo a gas safe engineer job.

    Looks amazing! Proper nice job on the ply walls.

    That top edge would bother me too. Can you caulk it?

    My wife and design collaborator suggested a cork floor. Think you can get engineered cork-faced boards, or just glue tiles down like old school lino tiles. Would warm the space up and reduce reflected noise a little.

    Alternatively, turn off gas at meter / outside, disconnect cooker, cap end, turn gas back on.

    Or call the emergency “I smell gas” line and be very nice to the man when he comes round.

    Just leave it lit: cheaper heating bills.

    Thanks, I made them from solid oak almost ten years ago. They got moved around while doing the hearth and they sound better than ever now, just needed to be a little further away from the wall.
