    So he breached the DPM to see if it was damp under the DPM?

    The beams should be tied to the brickwork with a wallplate, and support on the lateral walls.

    Judging from the photo of outside, they look like self supporting glazing beams which are available up to 6m in length.

    Looks like they blew their budget on UFH and massive glass panes, because that looks like a professionally done job. A lot of the superficial stuff looks like it has been done poorly.
    To me, it screams 'elderly person living alone'.
    I'd presume the remnants of the wall are supporting a RSJ, if they are aligned. Also, you'd expect to a larger ceiling area damaged from the over run bath if no joist.

    *Actually having zoomed in on the UFH manifold. That looks rough as fuck.

    It's solid. Weighted and hung properly. Just had a look at some OS maps from 1890-1903, and its even marked on that!
    @Howard One colour per upright board.

    Annoyed that it's attached to their wall, there's old planning permission showing the gate in the exact same place.
    It's a bit bemusing because the gate is immaculately maintained white painted wood, but the wall on the other side is dark stone.

    Would the location of a gate, which is fixed to neighbouring property, but not technically 'in' their plot of land, be considered a prescriptive easement? It's been in that location since at least 1997, and is the entrance to a passage providing RoW for two properties, and the provides security to the rear of three properties. The neighbour is now, 10 years after he purchased property with the gate in-situ, decided he's not happy and is threatening legal action. As far as I can tell, he doesn't have a leg to stand on.

    @Squaredisk
    I just puked a little.
    Here's what I would do.
    Go to a decent fabric website. I'll pm the one I'd use.
    Order two free samples. Usually they are 10x10cm.
    Take those samples, and the garment to someone who does alterations.
    Shouldn't cost too much as you aren't after anything too complex.

    Sounds stupid, but have you tried facebook fabric groups? Usually resellers of imported webbing.
    I've had webbing from this person before I think.

    What does it look like at the moment? I only suggested dancewear/costume because they are more likely to have a suitable stretch/mesh lycra fabric. Otherwise anyone with ability to do a flatlock stitch.
