    is the pop likely to pinpoint the fault source?

    More than likely. If you can hear it I'll bet it not surrounded by plaster!

    Oh. By the way when you do IR test it make sure there isn't a neon indicator on the SFO as it will give a false reading.

    32A on a radial will need 4mm T&E.

    You've either got a high resistance fault between L and E or hidden behind the tiles is an old socket and there is choc bloc where the L and E has been miswired or loose connections.

    Either way you'll need to get the tiles off to find it.

    The meter can only be moved by the utility company. You can ask them to supply a 100A cutout on the meter tails.

    Then a sparks can then move the CU safely. The cost depends if the sparks deems the CU move mean an upgrade to an 18th Edition unit and the subsequent retest.

    I was thinking of buying a new one but I think this is salvageable and I'd rather spend the £500 on tools to fix it and be able to keep them afterwards.

    So. Any tips?

    A new door needed and I'll refelt the roof (thinking about 'fake' shingles to make it look fancy).

    New weatherproof paints on the outside and replace the glass with a plastic version instead.

    The inside is in good condition but the lower parts and wooden bearers need replacing.

    Has anyone taken a garden shed apart, repaired any rotten bits and rebuilt?

    I'd like to take this apart, repair it and put it back together turned around 90 degrees and the windows side swapped to the other wall.

    but it's ok I guess

    It'll bug the hell out of you for a week then you'll forget about it.
