Job I did last month, for my mate dads house.
Made from the old door frames I ripped out when I was working for the council replacing doors and windows.
All the timber would have been skipped and then disposed of.

hearing from many now that things are indeed quiet in the industry, fitters painting walls, ready to pounce on breakdowns, subbies quiet and so on.

interesting times ahead

could this be anything to do with such a crap summer / spate of weather ?

May / June was great; July / August our usual shit and maybe folks hoping for, our more often than not, Indian summer this month and next to make up for the last two months of crap, which of course ain't happened as yet ?

People seem busy around here

Turning work away at the minute, cant get round it all. Had 2 enquiry's this week from different developers, one for 6 houses and about to start a job for another one converting an office block into flats so all seems good round here.

Who knows whats coming - it could bring huge benefits if some labour leaves the country, or it could kill off the development and leave us all high and dry. Who knows, one things for sure - the media will love to talk it up and make it worse than it is!
