In Topic: Building your own house

Yesterday, 11:35 AM

We've just finished a huge project on a house. It wasn't a new build, but a complete renovation, doors, windows, floors, plastering, all kitchen, all bathrooms, entire plumbing and electrics. Big job. I loved it. Then I hated it. Then I loved it again. And so on.

 

We had my brother-in-law as architect, a good-ish contractor, decent builders, etc. But you still have to know that everything takes more time and more money than planned. Not massive amounts in our case, but still. If you are very tight on your original budget, then you will be in pain later.

 

WE had to be careful with protected restrictions on the property and licenses, etc from the loacl council always cause delays and expense.

 

But we're in.

 

And it's grand.

don't know about that pal

I, typically, typed in pessimistic and came away with a very creditable ninety odd

 

Ah. Maybe that's it. To survive you can be Victor Meldrew or Ned Flanders, but not middle of the road.

Why?
His ban will be over by then.

 

Very good.

Ah.

 

With a low BMI and non smoker I felt a bit short-changed to get 2043 tbh.

 

I'd always planned on making it to at least 80 in decent nick.

 

So I cahanged 'normal' to 'optimistic' and got 2060 which would take me to 91.

 

So the lesson to learn appears to be 'look on the bright side', or some such nonsense.

Why wouldn't he carry on?

 

He never had any pace to lose, he's durable, versatile, reads the game well. He's been a great servant to Saints in a golden age for them.

 

The only thing I don't like is how he whinges and harrasses refs, but that's their fault for allowing him to do it (God knows why).
