  • It is akin to sticking your finger or wanger in the 'mystery' hole in the wall and hope that it doesn't get chopped off.

    Good luck with that Scott ...

  • Structural engineer?? Maybe, maybe not; depending on risk and any liability exposure.
    Common sense would apply just as well. A seasoned tradesman would be useful for knowledge and real world experience.
    A plan of the framework would assist Scott; showing any internal walls. For instance,...

  • Looking at the image of your room,
    It is a small amount of expense and time to put in a ceiling cavity access Scott. It is sensible to do so for any future maintenance or storage, sound system, ventilation ducting etc etc.
    The load strength is in the vertical plane so the section depth is...

    started a topic Soaps. Specifically Kirk's Soap

    Soaps. Specifically Kirk's Soap

    Does anyone have experience of Kirk's, 100% Premium Coconut Oil Gentle Castile Soap?
