The nations going to the dog's.
Building firm laying off workers,
New homes are stalled in half build state.
So the gloom merchants have us believe and as I look around by area it can be seem to be somewhat true - but entirely so- there is working going on on a 'brown filed siter across the road to me.
And yet- I have two projects to be carried out.
I initiated both in January and approved one in
March -Start Time?
Maybe end of May- The roof under felt needs replacing 'got a lot on at moment- said this one man firm.- Selected him because I saw his work nearby and checked his pricing.

Decided to have Bathroom re furbished - Bath out - ~Shower in tiling etc.
Having once more looked around and checked pricing - B&Q and their contracting firm seemed to be the best - reasonable 'fixed' pricing and no added on bits.
The survey came to price up middle March, the Technical man came soon there after- needed a second opinion re a drainage problem.
Came by yesterday with the 'drain man'. sorted what had to be there [added a bit more to the estimate price - of course]
When I asked when would they be coming-[Want avoid 2 gangs of herberts in at once - I mean builder's tea and digestives costs a fortune]
They reckoned 'Oh late July maybe August'
So they must have plenty of work on too.
