Hello dears Me and OH are deep into the renovation of the Victorian farm cottage that we moved into a few months ago, and while it's a gorgeous little place and set in a fantastic location, we've got a lot on . Unfortunately, the previous encumbent was a DIY nightmare, he did everything himself and has made a total b***s up of it all . At the moment, we've had to rip ALL the heating/water pipes out, most of the walls are back to bare brick while they dry out from 15 years of leaks , there's no floor in the living room and all the "floorboards" are gone from upstairs. I use the term "floorboards" very loosely as they were made from offcuts of plywood and fastened in line with the joists rather than at right angles to them. And don't mention the electrics, they're incredible!! The place has to be seen to be believed and the only thing stopping us from crying about it is the thought that we can visualise it when it's all done, and we have angels for neighbours. She's a plumber, he's an electrician, and you could't ask for better people next door. Anyhoo, to date we have a large pile of old radiators, some old cast iron water pipe that was buried in the garden, and a growing collection of copper pipe. Will I get much if I weigh it all in or is it easier just to recycle it? The only trouble with it is that we live out near Spurn Point, it's a 30 mile round trip to Dull, and I don't know where the local scrappies are although as I've recently started driving an artic for a galvanizing firm therein, I can probably call after work? Thanks all. Martyn.
