    Insurance companies will like this chip. Just think of the home insurance premiums (and the refused claims,,, "You knew your house was built on a flood plain." "It was an act of God that made it rain 3 months worth of rain in a week." etc, etc, ) ;);)

    It may be the next day CGN, but i'll chime in anyway.

    Bathroom replacement and new onsuite install. Such fun :rolleyes:
    Hoping to be finished by next weekend, all fittings arriving at 2pm today, tiles Tuesday.
    Trying to work around a rewire, screeders and kitchen fitters:rolleyes:

    Can't complain, We've all had a cooked lunch every day from this customer and get offered tea every two hours!
    Demolishing a bacon and egg sandwich now.:D I'm much happier when I'm well fed...

    Ah yes...can feel a Friday sandwich coming on too :)

    I've just finished repairing the floor joists. Just a quick, but strong bodge really as the whole floor is coming up early next year along with hacking walls back to brick. On to a few handyman type jobs now...nothing particularly exciting :)

    Tomorrow I'll mainly be replacing a half brick in a house I recently fitted a kitchen in. The hole was where an old waste pipe came through the wall.

    Today, looked at 6 fire doors that need replacing as the contractor that 'varnished/stained' them messed up big time. They tried sanding back and refinishing but client not happy with it so I'm tasked with sorting out replacements and fitting them. Fixed a few doors, installed some blinds and made and fitted some noticeboards. Nothing exciting that's for sure.
