Cowart's Common Room
Application for Huge Purple Vibes PLEASE!

I am, as you know, seeking quotes from builders for the proposed extension to our cottage. Well, yesterday a builder who was recommended to me by a friend came to call. He is the third I have invited to call - two interviewed by phone tried to give me a quote site [!] and sight unseen, of the three whom I invited to call up I liked the first, and his price is in and it is affordable and his standards are excellent. Number two - son of a father who built a previous extension for Mum - is not taking after Dad, five weeks later and am still awaiting a quote, but yesterday, Oh! frabjous day THE builder who really got what I have in mind called and it was sweet harmony; and...I even knew his aunt without knowing the connection or him before. So......

Huge Purple Vibes please that he comes in as affordable, my instincts tell me that I will get exactly what I am looking for from him - and he is big into recycling what can be recycled, adopting, adapting and improving wherein possible and I have fingers and toes crossed so tightly I may never walk again!

Milla's Avatar at least if he doesn't (and he will, he will!) the first guy sounds great, too.
And we'll expect lots of photos!

Oh, yes. We had contractors work on our house after our fire. Talk about shoddy work! But it was the insurance company which hired them, not us.

Big purple vibes coming your way.

Sumarell's Avatar Best of luck IE. I'm looking forward to progress reports. (We are anticipating 'living' with the builders in, in the next few months too.) Smile
