    Yeah I get that using non dimmable LEDs can result in flickering but I’m getting no light at all so trying to work out of the dimmer module is broken or there’s something else wrong

    If I wire a non dimmable led transformer to a dimmer module, what would happen? No light whatsoever, or just no ability to dim?

    Hang on, does the dimmer go before or after the driver?

    I'm about to start on 2 walls and then the floor of my studio and I'm worried it's going to trigger my OCD into overdrive

    That's the one. Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure a while ago someone was cladding walls in birch ply and was asking about how to detail the joints. I can't find the thread. Did you sort it? Have any photos?

    Ah yeah nice. I had planned a green roof but with 2 big openings and a relatively long span I don't think it'll take the weight unfortunately.

    My doors are from slide and fold as well. The 'instructions' are hopeless - clearly meant for people who have installed these things before. It's definitely a 2 person job!
    Drilling steel should be fine with some decent HSS bits.

    ETA I ordered slideandfold's expressed doors and the lead time was 6 weeks, not the quoted 10 days.

    What made you go for a full upstand with internal drain rather than gutter?

    Do you know where you're getting your bifolds from?
    I installed mine at the weekend. Goddamn that was a ballache. Got the frame perfectly laser aligned, fitted the sashes and had no end of difficulty getting the bastard traffic door to close properly without catching. Ended up tightening/loosening screws to pull the frame back and forth until it kinda just happened. No science to it at all!

    Looking good. And I'll be sure to remember the skin burning cautions!
    Did you get your EPDM from rubber4roofs? I've just opened my delivery up to start fitting the gutter trim and there's no trim joiner or polly pins. Not particularly a problem as I got some polypins with my fascias and the joint in the gutter trim won't be seen, but wondering if kit included them?
