Ok, so first thread I’ve actually started.
I posted today about something I made and how I got that warm fuzzy feeling because everything went according to plan.
In my job as a builder I get the chance to see the end result and enjoy that feeling.
Brief history, I haven’t always been a builder, I started out life as a chef in the navy, worked in factory’s, warehouses yada yada yada.
I have always had a keen interest in DIY so when a friend asked if I like to labour for him I said ok. Long story short I worked for him for 10 years and became his site foreman, after 3, but decided to leave him and go on my own.
By chance a client who we had done some work for asked me if I’d like to convert a barn for them. This was 2 years ago, so far I have converted another old barn into a cinema room, built a greenhouse from scratch and loads of other little things, brick paths, veg patches and I’ve started to learn gardening.oh and I’ve just started the groundwork for the job they took me on for originally!
Anyway pictures below, the greenhouse and cinema room was whilst I was drinking, (I’d often fall asleep in the afternoon, and wake up and start again).
Every thing else is sober.
Please feel free to post about anything that you have done, created, painted, whatever, that when you step back you can look and say,
yes!!! I’m happy with that. I did a good job!!
