The building trade goes into top gear in the weeks leading up to Christmas. You can understand it. Everyone wants their bathroom/kitchen/sparebedroom/garden/garage finished before the holiday, and before the visitors start arriving to make use of the new facilities. For us though that means a big slow down. Providing quotes is pretty low on the list of priorities when hammers and nails need to get banged together pronto. Still. We're waiting and hoping that we might get to start something (anything) before Christmas. And we're keeping the whole process going. This week's piece in stuff is all about the pricing process starting at the beginning. And next week's is about the later pricing process when you have builders involved. I hope it helps. I've learnt plenty in this process already and...we haven't even started yet...
