catch 22 that though as if they are the main contractor and you are subbing to them technical it falls in their remit but a message like

we and our sub contractors etc

haha i remember mick ripping into you for that driveway, he's got a tak tb016 now i think.

lots of finished pics no work in progress though, you still shy?

how are the pins holding up

i like the trampoline idea, do you do away with safety cage thing or suggest some crash mats for rd it

yep those trampolines have saftey matts round them or you can buy over sized rings up to a meter in width, of course as its in the ground the fall is a lot less than a normal trampoline, plus when the kids leave home... a nice koi pond can be made really cheaply

keeping it cheap buddy, hence old leftover setts and concrete pavers. will do herring bone paving inside. was planning bogun setts but it was just too much money, lowered my budget to clay pavers after that but got messed around royally by a greedy reclaimer and saved a ton by going concrete. just be nice to have it done at last, been here three years, and dug this out in the first week its only now that ive got around to finishing up.

Fair play to you. My house is all reclaimed stuff. All old stuff. I have just gone to a tablet so will see if I can post some pics.
