As well as over-strenuous standards, housebuilding is now being held back by the absurd Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), whereby buyers of new homes bear the brunt of the cost of new roads, schools and playgrounds, even though these facilities are used just as much by the occupants of existing housing. In parts of Hammersmith buyers of new homes must pay £400 in CIL per square metre. That’s a mighty expensive doormat.

The key to keeping your garage organized is having a place for everything. Hanging things takes up little to no floor space and utilizes wall space that is typically left forgotten.

Inclement weather almost put paid to Children’s BBC TWO’s planned outside broadcast from the Clothes Show Live exhibition, at Birmingham’s NEC, one Sunday morning towards the end of 1990. Heavy snow had fallen, effectively cutting off the venue from the outside world. But with assistance from the RAF, presenters Andi Peters and Philippa Forrester made it to Birmingham and the outside broadcast made it to air – but not before Simon Parkin had been rushed into the BBC2 Broom Cupboard, bedecked with a random selection of clothes, as a contingency.

The shipping charge on the casabella website is just frankly insulting given the broom price. I know it’s less than people have had to pay in total historically given the abysmal stocking of this broom, but I just can’t make myself accept the violation, lol.

Note: If your garage has a short ceiling (or your tools have extra-long handles), create a cutout in the top of the plywood face, as shown in Figure A, to allow more entrance and exit leeway for your tools.

You can really clean up your garage space by simply adding something to the walls. Tile is a great choice, and you can find tile pieces really cheap at most hardware stores or you can check your local Dollar Store. Just apply the tile to the wall like you would to the floor and you have a great space that looks much better than it did with concrete walls.

Dust mops are available in a number of styles to fit different applications. Twisted-loop mops offer the highest level of dust pickup, and they’re also less likely to get snagged on objects and fixtures. Looped-end mops offer excellent coverage and hold up to repeated launderings without fraying. Some cut-end mops can be laundered and reused, but many are considered disposable and are not designed to be washed. Some commercial dust mops are made with antimicrobial agents that resist the growth of bacteria to help keep the mops sanitary between washings.
