Britain's got talent..For WFO building
 
Hi everyone.
Just getting started on my build. Great forum but a little lacking on UK specifics.
Post here any info on material sourcing etc for the UK.
Keep it metric if possible:)

Doccrow
the information on the forum comes from the members, especially supply and sources of suitable materials.
If it is lacking from the UK and Scotland, then they need to lift their socks and contribute more!
Anyway welcome aboard and enjoy!

Cheers.

Neill

Someone should start and keep upto date a sticky UK thread (maybe they already have...)

This is what I know:
- Vermiculite - mytub.co.uk - I used them, cheap and free delivery.
- Firebricks - kilnlinings.co.uk - saw this yesterday - looks good and not too expensive.
- Flour - nifeislife.com - Got 20 bags of Caputo the other day - it really is worth it.

looks like I need to get me finger out and start building.

someone at work today was on about barbecues, and asked me gas or charcoal, my reply- wood fired pizza oven left them somewhat confused :p

I fancy the idea of pizza on saturday, then do the meat and veg for sunday, and then the weeks bread supply

That sounds like the go Steve, but don't forget to insulate, insulate some more and then insulate even more to get the most out of it
all you need to do now is to extract that digit and do it.
Get those fellow workers envious mate!

Cheers.
