Job description

I previously posted this job to start with instalation of central heating. This has now been done by a heating firm. As they do not do anything other than heating system installation, I am now posting the remainder of work I want done at this stage.

The house is an ex local authority 3 bed mid terrace. It has solid walls throughout and solid concrete floor at ground level and floorboards upstairs. I have stripped back every room to bare walls and stripped away old window surrounds and the skirting boards (these will be replaced by me after completion of below work). I have removed the fireplace in the living room. The kitchen only has the sink remaining plumbed in. The bathroom has been gutted leaving only the toilet bowl. The house now requires new ceilings, some electrical work and plastering.

Good prompt quote and communication from the start and throughout. Flexible and accomodating to changes I chose or was forced to make. Good advice and willingness to adapt. Overall, job done to an good standard. bit of chasing at the end and a few 'rough edges' however nothing that would stop me from recommending them to you.
