Re: More4 on Film4 907

Sorry , didn't see that.

Don't know whether it is a plus or not. Most more4 scheduling seems to be Location, place in the sun, helicopter what is your emergency? Didn't watch much on Film 4 as the evening films finished so late.

All done and dusted, thanks.

The Spanish system is very efficient. The paperwork received is very prompt and is what is required for anything at the UK end.

Re: Roofing Costs

Sorry cannot help with traditional roofing costs. I suspect mixing modern plasterboard faced insulated boards with old uneven wooden beams would be difficult and involve a lot of ugly packing pieces. You need to get some or a builder quotes and advice. You may find the builder would suggest all new ...

Re: Roofing Costs

I can give you some prices on this method. Our local blacksmith/metal worker erects a frame and then affixes the approx 12 cm thick insulated roof sheets on to it. The sheets he uses come with a nice mock effect tile look(choice of colours available) , sheets are 1 metre wide and different lengths. ...

Re: Having a car to use in UK

Yet another issue that is not easy to address for people who dont spend all their time in one country.

How about you being a named driver on your daughters car insurance with her as the owner? For daughter substitute any other family member.

Most people just lie and pretend they also live in the UK.

Re: Adverts

My better half was surfing the net and received ads tailored to what I had been viewing moments earlier on a different IP address.

I read that as well as harvesting what you search for, Amazon know what you typed in the address or search bar even ifyou do not hit enter.

Re: Waste disposal

That story about the 2nd hand bed made me really laugh.

Last month, my brother in Yorkshire got their old washing machine outside the house - down the side of the house past two cars. Within twenty minutes it had “gone”. None of the neighbours saw anything! No need to pay Currys £15 disposal charge.

Never seen a charity shop in Spain but then whenever we go to “ civilisation” in Spain they aren't high on our must see.

We are going to have a clear out this year so might look for one. Any names of shops for an internet search? Any in Fuengirola?

Re: Buying an old house without basic services

You might encounter a lot of inertia to overcome trying to get outbuildings, animal sheds classified as dwellings. You are right about money pit. Even doing the work yourself.
