I just can't work out electrics? If I sent you a picture of a light switch (or two) with about 12 wires going in/out could you say why I have to switch it one way in one room and another way in the other room to get it to light up?

Lets get this going again.......

The porch over the door made from pallet wood and some old cowshed cladding courtesy of a farmer friend & painted with leftovers. Actually looking at the pic almost everything you see is recycled/upcycled.

Quality. Obvious question, that I'm almost too scared to ask, is where's your daughter gonna sleep if you've reclaimed the bedroom?

Bit like doing ya bearings in a hope rear hub putting it back together,and realizing it doesn't work properly,because,you have left the freewheel spacer washer out,and i have done this more than once,luckily it just pulls off again

Inner Tube Recycling - save your back & hours of picking up half logs that go flying with this little invention - inner tube cut in half, tie bit of chain onto it, tie wire loop on, lay into log with cleaving maul - you have an expandable wee device that is the 'logs bollocks' :-) Thank you & Good -night.
