I've just phoned my structural engineer.
Him - Hello
Me - how did it go?
Him - No good, we'll have to do it in the morning, we'll need a new panel and we can't get one that size so we'll need to cut it.
Me - Oh well never mind
Him - we'll have to go to Wickes.
Me - weren't B&Q cheaper last time? (my dad not only took me to wickes because "they were cheaper" but later we ended up at B&Q and he went to check the price. And they were cheaper!! And I had wasted £15!!
Him - could do
waffles a bit and THEN he admits he's done it!!
So that's that done. My neighbour though has got some fun! That said that happened to me 3 years ago and I replaced the supplied posts with much thicker ones that are fairly strong.
Lets hope that's the wind for this winter.
