Next up was doing the driveway.



A lot of bricks had to be laid.



Asphalt has been laid on the road



All done! Hopefully I won't be doing that again soon. 235 m2 all together / 8000 bricks!!!


Got some nice metal signs, a watch and other nice VAG things



Was lucky to find this pretty much NOS 4 HP / 90 litre compressor at a reasonable price.



This was my first real car-detailing collection.



Primarily Das 6 and 3M gear.



Soon upgraded to Rupes and Autoglym.



The big Rupes bags were very nice to have.



Soon found out that the lift could be used for other purposes than lifting cars

That is one amazing place ,
How many cars are you cleaning with all the A Glym stuff ?
If that's just the garage how good is the house ?

We may moan about them sometimes..but thankfully in the UK we have good Building Regulations and Building Inspectors...
Installing lintels like that is wrong in any language..

Thanks I only use it for our 2 cars - currently a Audi S3 Sportback from 2016 and a VW Golf IV GTI from 2000.

The rest of the house is ok

The building regulations in Denmark are far more strict than in the UK. Trust me

The lintel is installed as it should. It is just a basic lintel for the garage door. There are no hinges on the picture, as you wrote. Just a small piece of wood which obviously has been removed, as it was just for temporarily “support”.

Not familiar with building regulations in Denmark...but I can see when something is wrong in a photo.
Ignore the fact the lintel is only bearing on...75/100mm each side..if that!.
On the right side (looking at pic) the lintel sits on a complete panel...the piece is next to it
On the left side...the lintel sits on a piece of panel.
That is not good building practice...and would never comply with UK regulations.

I can see what you mean now. However for both the UK and danish building-regulations concerning correct installation of intels, all lintels should have a suitable bearing onto the wall at each side of the opening. As long as the aerated concrete can support (which it can do easily), there are no problems.

However my OCD would have made it even on both sides as stated by you, if I had made the concrete walls, but in this case I didn't make them

Yes, I’m no builder but that’s **** poor engineering practice.

"all lintels should have a suitable bearing onto the wall at each side of the opening"

Not "suitable" in the UK...minimum 150mm
But...I only ask the question out of interest,not to overly criticize.Enjoy your home
Your builders might be dodgy...but Denmark can proudly claim to have one of the best in Nicki Pedersen..
