Does anyone on here have a tuit? I need a circular one. I've told the missus she can have a new kitchen when I get a Round Tuit!

heh, when we built this house, first thing i did as soon as both house and workshop got build was getting the workshop done so i could work. house stands for 10 years now and i still need to dry-wall the attic room and do some work in basement to get it finished.

when we moved in to this house i built my garage, that was 6 years ago this month, i wired up the garage but never got round to actually connecting it to the mains, relying on an extension cable to power everything.
2 years ago, we had a conservatory built and the wife decided she wanted some decking built around it. We had quotes of between £1700 and £2200 for the decking.
Iwas made redundant 3 weeks ago, and in the space of a week, i permanently wired the garage, sorted the front garden, moved the shed (absolute twat of a job !) and built and stained the decking (complete with lights)......al at a cost of £700 in total !!!
having said that, our bedroom still has no skirting boards !!!

Erm . . oh dear . .hope my wife dont read this thread.

Gotta admit to 'leaving the odd bit' !
Bearing in mind I'm a buyer for a building & dec contractors, so I get most stuff very cheap. I'm fine a bringing it all home. Its the putting it on the wall that takes the time :shake:

Everything indoors has been put on hold while I finish my garage. Once done, I've got to refit bathroom, kitchen, do a lot of decorating & finish the garden !

Started re-doing a small toilet, stripping walls & window frame etc etc. 10 yrs later decided to sell the house, so finished it then...

When we moved into the new place, first things that got done were my paint room/garage and her garage. Priorities...

You don't want to rush these things, she'd expect more done if I finished something.
