comment What is this type of lead called and how do I wire to it correctly?
You insert the wire into the blue (insulated) end and crimp the connector onto the wire. The uninsulated end would go onto the connector on the switch.

comment can I cut in / blend old brick extension
Make sure you clean off all the old mortar and that each new brick gets a good bed of mortar to site on. The hardest part will be ensureing that you get the perpend and top joints fully packed with mortar. Have you found matching bricks?

comment What's the best way to hang this large picture on insulated plasterboard?
@FanYang yes... I think I'd go for 75mm or even 100mm screws. (I'm assuming you're going into timber studs).

comment Can I build a hot tub using lumber?
There will be a force out as well as down which will try to push out the bottom of the tub, so Matt is correct in aiming to make sure that his design accommodates this.
