    As tradesmen we get asked to install them every week.

    We grimace, umm and ahhh.

    Try and change the subject.

    Become hostile to the idea.

    Even walk away from paid work.


    Because these ideas are moronic!

    Here's a few of my favorite ( hates):

    Belfast Sinks

    Taps in worktops

    Tiled over boxed in WC cisterns

    Waste Disposal units

    'smoke n mirror' water conditioning gadgets

    L shaped shower baths

    Free standing baths

    Wall hung TV's

    Coloured LED's

    Shag pile carpets on stairs

    Let's have some of your pet hates too! :)

    Pop-upĀ  wastes. Conservatories with no doors between house and conservatory. Patios above DPC. Decks that are sky high looking over the neighbours. Pretty coloured sheds. multi coloured shingle in flower beds...and the most ridiculous of all Solar PV panels!
