As I mentioned, we had another joiner to give us a quote for the shelves. Yet again, it was in writing and was another shock. This time at just over £1k. When I think about it I begin to appreciate why any work done by any tradesman is going to cost. But I still find it hard to swallow when you see the price in B&W.

Now, I don't know about you, but I'm reluctant to pay a joiner all that money to build something he can't even draw with straight lines!
Still, no need to worry. Here's all that wood I was talking about that dad's got his hands on.
Notice the door to his garage in this shot? Built it himself!! He's progressing well anyway and I'll post some pics of what he's done so far in a day or so...
