Building help required for ED resident


Recommended Posts

Hello EDF

I am posting on behalf of a friend. She had a stroke last year and has been in hospital since. She is due to go home soon for the first time since last November but some essential work needs to be carried out before she can return. We are looking for local companies who can help with the following and ideally turn it around in 4 to 6 weeks. It does not need to be one company, we are happy to manage multiple business/tradespeople. I suspect this is going to be tricky to find at the moment, but the EDF is also great for recommendations, so you never know. Here are the jobs we need help with

1 ? Knock together an existing bathroom and WC to create a single tiled bathroom. Approx finished size 2.5m x 2.5m

2 ? Reposition one door (block and make good the old position) and make another door frame wider ? hang two new doors

3 ? Make good an existing kitchen. Change worktops, cupboard doors, box a few things in, maybe add new sink. Plumb in new Washer Dryer and Dishwasher

4 ? Redecoration ? Clean and prep walls then re-paint Hall, Living/Dining room, Kitchen, Stairs, Landing, 2 x bedrooms, Small Office

5 - Some additional carpentry/handy-person jobs (about 2 days worth)

Very keen to see if anyone has any recommendations

Many thanks

    • Love this video of Simon Munk talking about the floating bus stop issues...just watch the behaviour of the cyclists who appear in shot....not one of them following the rules....the fact that LCC pushed this out shows just how blinkered they are...it's like that famous clip of some local government official being interviewed on the road side to talk about how much safer that particular stretch of road is now because of their interventions and a crash happens right behind him!  
    • I think WRT Labour, they don't want to open up what would become another devisive Brexit debate this side of an election. Personally I'm ok with this as I want to see the Tories absolutely shellacked at the GE as a consequence for what they've brought on the country. I doubt that Labour will address Brexit much in a first term either, instead concentrating on the big domestic issues e.g. NHS, transport, education. I realise that these these are all interconnected with Brexit, but the lead-up to Brexit itself took up so much bandwidth that nothing else got done, so I can see Labour swerving the Brexit issue fir as long as they can.  Eventually though, you can only ignore the economic gravitational pull of the single largest trading bloc right on your doorstep for so long, and at some point Labour will have to address it, so for me it's more a question of when not if...

    • Leon from electrical initiative changed our old skool kitchen lights with modern dimmable down lighters. I'm really pleased with the work, fitted to a very high standard. Leon has it all, excellent electrician, polite, easy to get on with, turned up on time, excellent communication and charged at fair value. I highly recommend his services.
