    depends on what type of kitchen fitter you are tbh, sum bloke that throws b&q ***** in for a quick £ or sumone that works for a bespoke kitchen company doing a good job for good money, as for it being a trade maybe not on paper but i think the "the trades world" see's it as one, most fitters i know are all rounders, electrics plumbing gas tiling joinery plastering,so in a way the decent all rounders are higher skilled then most trades, i dont think theres many sparkies,tilers,plasterers, that can fit a kitchen "properly" and even alot of joiners ive seen fit kitchens are **** tbh, its a different ball game to a "trade" and as for money at the firm i work for in lancs fitters earn on average 1.200 a week and the better fitters get that all year really. rant over

    Studies and Bedrooms eh. Carry some boxes into a room and screw them to the wall. Tough job that is. I must bow down at your altar of supertradeness. Rubbish. Kitchen fitters like you are the indoor version of all round builders. Bit of this and a bit of that. Jack of all trades and master of none. I stick to what I know and what I spent time learning. I dont dabble in other things I stick to what I do best. In terms of kitchen fits that I do I simply supply and fit units/tops/cornice etc and get my customers to source other trades themselves. Most of my customers have had kitchens fitted by supertradesmen before and have felt that everything has been done alright but not fantstically. Thats why they get me in to fit the core of their next kitchen because they know I will get my part of the job just right as oppossed to alright. They get other trades in to complete their part of the job just right as well. The end result is a kitchen with everything spot on.

    Today I am going to build some units and fit them, hand paint them, cut a tree down to make some oak wortops, install a new ring for sockets and 1 for appliances, change the lead supply pipe to plastic, plumb in the kitchen, tile the walls and fit some t&g oak flooring(made earlier)

    My price £80k, estimated materials £285.65

    Want to be home in time for the fall guy

    Clarkey. Something has been niggling me, if your girlfriend is only 17 and you've been going out long enough for Daddy to let you go on holiday together, how old was she when you first poked her. Either she's a bit easy or you have been grooming her. Which is it?

    What I find funny is that you would even care?

    I did type up a responce saying how old we both were when we met but I thought. "Why do I need to tell some loser other the internet?"

    Pretty lame but up to you if you want an obsession with me I guess.

    You take it? or you would like it to be?

    Why do you care so much anyway lol. pretty sad.

    Just for the record: Since turning 16 I have never participated in acts of sexual nature with a person under 16. ;)
