comment How can I safely have 2x 7kw/32amp electrical vehicle chargers connected to my consumer unit? (UK)
Actually, it's unlikely that the oven draws anything close to 32A. Probably more like 13A (some ovens come with a standard plug) - you'd need to check the power rating of the oven to be sure. A large cooker circuit is only usually actually needed when you have an electric hob.

comment Whats size concrete aggregate
I wouldn't worry about the depth. The smaller aggregate will be easier to work into the narrow width.

comment What can I do about a house with internal concrete floor with no DPM?
Sorry, OPC is Ordinary Portland Cement - just the bags of cement you can get from DIY stores and builders merchants (some has plasticiser already in for mortar - you don't need that). I wouldn't bother digging under as it won't really help any with bonding. If you really wanted to bond, you could drill into the slabs and use a piece of reinforcement, but I'd not bother. That product sounds like it could do what you want it to do.

comment How to paint / decorate both sides of a plasterboard?
It should be fine on both sides for paint. If you were plastering it, you'd use the white face (see point 8 on the link I've added). For paint, I'd hazard a guess that the brown side might be a little more absorbent, so you might need an extra coat of paint on that side - which will help smooth some of the texture out too.

comment What would cause a chainsaw to only start when trigger is pulled?
Some chainsaws have a "lock" on the trigger so you have it hold itself on full throttle to start it.
