Right, so this is after I came back from Holiday.
Nice new floors laid!
It simply had a rag shoved inside the joint and a plastic (ribbed!) bottle ontop of it, and a piece of polystyrene in the gap where the floor drain is supposed to go.
As a result, the bottle was impossible to remove, the rag was trapped inside the screed, the joint had been knocked so it was no longer where it was supposed to be, tried freeing it off but the screed goes very hard, I'd even say it goes harder than concrete..
New roof beams, bolted either side to wooden beams on the top of the walls, used the left over polystyrene sheets to insulate, the beams were 150mm, sheets 100 so it leaves a 50mm gap for air circulation above it.
Top of the beams is covered in 25mm OSB board, Bitumen paper and then the new metal roofing sheets.
Also added the wooden support beams fo rthe ceiling which will now be level opposed to what it was before, at a weird angle.
Hopefully, when they come to replace the old roof this new section can stay in place.
Simply need to take down the OSB facia, and shorten the wooden beams so there's a bit more overhang.
It's one of these: http://kotly.com/Storage_water_heater_Cyclone_400_l_with_3_coils,3590.html
Basically, its a 400L tank, which we have used in a slightly different way than normal.
Rather than heating 400L of hot water to use for showers/baths/doing the dishes, for it then to cool down overnight again losing energy, its been "inverted" in that its being used as a thermal store.
The main volume of the tank is used as part of the HEATING circuit that does the UFH and Radiators, the return from these goes back into the tank, then out to the boiler, gets heated up, goes to the UFH/Radiators and returns to the tank again.
The side coil is used for the fireplace. This will eventually help warm up the water in the tank, so the gas boiler doesn't have to do so much work.
The top coil is used as a "Pre heat" coil for the hot water. Cold water from the well enters the coil at the bottom, and leaves slightly warmer at the top before getting sent through to the boiler to be heated to the desired temperature.
The bottom coil eventually will be for a solar pannel, which will have the same function as the fireplace, to simply reduce the load on the gas boiler.
The red thing on top is a Feed & Expansion tank for the fireplace backboiler loop.
I chose this model because of its price and ratings, its illegal in some countries to have a sealed (Unvented) system on a Uncontrolled Heat Source (Such as a fireplace which you can't just turn off by turning a tap or hitting a switch)
This means that if the water gets too hot in the system, it will simply evaporate and push it back into the tank, take in a gulp of colder water and cool the system down again. No risk of explosions or boiling water being spat out into someone's face. Not to mention, it has completed the 500 hour boiling test where they cycle boiling water throughout it non stop without failing.
And then it was Christmas, and I moved away from Slovakia after 3 and a bit years to live in Germany.
