Thanks for the replies. Maybe angle grinder isnít the way too go thenÖ Or at least not on the first attempt.
Chain block or winch look like a good option - though no idea who would have one locally. Few people I could ask maybe unless anyone around Skipton happens to have one?
Winches would work in some areas (most are near tree cover so some good anchor points - but a few are out in the open).
Maybe the best option is for me to go up for the day, dismantle what I can with a big hammer (or scaffold piece - I like that idea) and then make notes of whatís remaining and have a better idea of whatís needed on the next trip. Itíll takes at least 2 trips I think as thereís about 12 stations to take down which are pretty spread out.
A 2t chain block and some strops. Very cheap and easy to pick up via Amazon. Or, for a little more, Toolstation/Screwfix. Very useful thing to have around (esp. in the boot of your car), if you can stretch past the cheap Chinese option.
Back during lockdown 1, having ordered a new bathroom about a month before we heard of Covid, I installed an all new family bathroom.
I had to do it, because we couldnít change the delivery date, had nowhere to store an entire bathroom in boxes etc.
If you recall, during LD1, everything was closed. So when I ripped out the old fixtures and flooring and discovered how rotten the flooring underneath was (chipboard), there was nothing I could do except dry it and treat it with thinned varnish or white glue solution (stuff from the back of the shed).
Didnít Fíing last. Just had to pull out the toilet which was rocking and rolling all over the shop, because the chipboard below wouldnít take a screw and (because everything else is fitted now) had to raise it onto an 18mm pedestal of new flooring. FML.
The cubical shower, which didnít get changed, suddenly decided to leak a couple of days ago, straight through the spotlights into the dining room below. I knew the drain fitting was iffy and the plastic aged, but when it was installed, the wanker that put it in, tiled over the frigging tray in such a way that the only way to access the trap below was to smash the tiles out (which Iíd been avoiding for the last 10 years since I first realised). Anyway, given the bastard leak, I now had to do IT.
BEHIND THE FUCKING TILES, THE SHOWER TRAY IS SITTING ON A STEEL RE-ENFORCED CONCRETE FUCKING LINTEL AND THERE IS NO SODDING WAY TO ACCESS THE UNDERSIDE OF THE PIGGING SHIT MONKEY SHOWER TRAY WITHOUT SMASHING OUT ALL THE DAMN CUBICAL TILING AND EVEN THEN, IíM TWATTINGWELL SURE THE AFOREMENTIONED PIGGING SHIT MONKEY SHOWER TRAY IS CEMENTED THE FUCK IN.
I AM NOT OK.
