Re: Condensation in the morning

Yep, happens to anyone I've talked to! The difference between the inside and outdoor temperatures is the cause and when you sleep on a metal and glass box it's kind of an occupational hazard managed as best you can. Even when using thermo mats :roll: Unless of course it's really cold then you get ic...

Re: Key cutting?

Like the sound of the 'old machine', sounds good. I'll make some phone calls locally and set them a challenge!
Clearly just tried the defeatist/pessimistic type of locksmiths so far.

Re: AAC polished alli pop outs - any good?

Right: errr ask questions away that's the idea of this forum thingy. Husband is here now: He is better than me...

Re: AAC polished alli pop outs - any good?

I can tell if there's a gap between joins however - They aren't seamless but detail doesn't show up very well on the photos on here as I have to minimise resolution to get them to go onto the site.
Can email you a better resolution photo if you PM me if this helps?
