floor joist going through party wall


Tell the neighbors to get new kids who are quieter.....that might be cheaper than making the changes you want.

Or, buy them carpet for their flat....with about 2" of padding.

You mean 600 pounds.....right?

Let me guess....used to be council housing?.....and they sold the units?

I lived in the UK for a couple of years....the x is from Scotland....this wife from Preston....you should have seen her grandparents house....

Your typical 2 story flat...pre WWII in Liverpool....front door opens onto the sidewalk....stairs are about 24" wide....you can't put very large items up stairs....kitchen was about the size of our bathroom.....hard to believe 3 people lived there.....

Okay I just have to ask a question. I have never known the correct answer to this.

In the statement about the "party wall".
Is the correct term "party wall", or is the correct term "parting wall"? Either could apply I suppose.
