We are having a conservatory built and the company we are using have said that because the entrance to the site where the conservatory is being built is not accessible to a digger, they have suggested using pylons for the base of the conservatory. Has anyone any idea if this is a good idea or not?

I desperately need a conservatory with limited budget. Can i utilise one concrete shed wall and one living room wall to save money and then i will have to get only two walls build, will it bring the cost down, if i get it done by a local builder after I buy it with this builder`s help?

I have a 1930 house which has a very small kitchen and would like to extend it. Would it be best to buy an off the shelf conservatory or go full whack and build a brick walled extension. I really don't have the funds to go mad and some prices that I have been quoted seem expensive for a 3x5m space joining at the back of the house. Can I have a conservtory and use it as a kitchen. As it's use is a kitchen it has to be warm in winter and cool in summer. Help please!

Looking at having a new conservatory fitted but a little debate about the roof. The supplier suggests that if its glass we'll end up spending £2k on blinds, and proposes the heat reflecting 35mm poly carbon roof. This is a 6m x 4m room and so is quite large and will be in full sun midday to sunset, any suggestions?

I have a conservatory with a plastic dwarf wall instead of brick, this seems to let a lot of the cold in.
It also has a cold concrete floor with carpet on top. Are conservatories normally very cold in the winter?
I want to put a Radiator in there and also try to insulate the floor, height isn't an issue. What's the best way of insulating the floor?
