...meant to ask Clari - how were the Grand Design creators? Lots of teeth sucking noises at the audacity of your plans? ( OH likes to guess the price quote, based on the number of sharp intakes of breath performed at the initial visit - he believes they have an exponential relationship 🤔🤔🤔)
See original post
Builder one was keen, ready to start, and gave no hint to shoot down any of our ideas (floor levelling compound, special plaster board to sound insulate the adjoining wall) nor any worry about the wall he was going to knock down being structural.
Builder two was pessimistic at best, seems to be keen to put lintel support structures everywhere (swear he must have one under his mug of tea), wrote off our idea of levelling compound (not needed) and plaster board (doesn't work), and was keen for us to do as much of the preparation work as possible (agh more knocking off plaster!!)
Builder three hasn't returned the call to even come round for a quote. Which is a good sign.
I'll let you know prices when they're in. I think you can guess which is going to be the more expensive one!
