Fair play to you, you have done a lot in a short time, unfortunatley your not in my area.
Maybe someone here will be in your area and offer you some work.
Best of luck.

Hi Tom,

Send the same message to all your local building contractors, or carpentry contractors (if you soley want to do carpentry) you find on google...

Attach your CV, and put 2 references (with phone numbers)...these are always the c.v's that get called up makes it very easy for the employer to check. Qualification's wise, put you would like to study towards an Nvq level 2 and 3...this will benefit you in the long run, the more qualified you are the better with main contractors. Plus you can become foreman/supervisor etc with a level 3, you can't without it on cscs sites.

Good Luck

Plus it's only a matter of time when everyone will have to be qualified, to work in private houses.
