Fence

Another quote for replacing the fence arrived today. Concrete posts and stuff with that flippy flap fencing :

One thousand two hundred and something pounds.

Argh.

It would probably be about half the price to B&Q it.
Then it's just a pain in the arse.

But you could do it at your own pace, getting the posts up, couple at a time.. then slate by slate?

Interesting project :)

I wish I had a garden :p

I knew that, I don't know why I put an "e" on the end. Sorry.

Next step - convince Jamie that it is a good idea *nods8

This is true *ponders*

I'm sure he wouldn't take *much* convincing though, if he got to see the Loverly Laura :P

That is it :D

Sell it from that angle, not the angle that he would be doing lots of work with a payment of dinner only :D

Its a piece of cake with the right stuff and the right tools. Unless your putting your poles in concrete!

It needs concrete posts which, yes, will have to be set in concrete.

God that price is unbeleivable, especially when ive just had a wall built in my front garden which is about 15ft long and its about 8 courses high but we have 4 pillars a bit higher and in between we will be putting wrought iron things in (if you know what i mean) anyways we had all the gear so he charged us 180 quid to do the wall.....not bad eh.

How much for the bricks? We could maybe make our own wall like that.

The price is quite high yes, but another guy was asking 1125 for just a wooden thing :/

Two people have been round and not even bothered to put a quote in for some reason...

We got them cheap from a builders merchants near us......they were the last lot and they cost us about 70 quid....ish.

Might be worth trying to find a local builders merchant, maybe not a big named company cos they might be more expensive.
