Have you seen this pumpkin?



Have you seen this pumpkin?, originally uploaded by maxxy2008.

I know it’s not usual to see pumpkins on a plumbing and plastering blog but I thought I would show the pumpkins that I was growing for my grandchildren for Halloween.

Then some miserable git has come along on two occasions and nicked them. The first one vanished beginning of this month and a second one yesterday.

So my grandchildren now have to share instead of having one each.

Needless to say I have now dug the other four up early.

What’s the world coming to eh?

Thanks for listening,
Tim

Cupboard Under Stairs are very handy indeed!

Having a built in wardrobe is great for best use of space as floor to ceiling space is utilised and no need to purchase a wardrobe for exact fit!

We have done quite a few of these now and here is a picture of a recent cupboard under the stairs that was built to use space in a living room.

A door was sourced to match other doors (apart from the one leading into the garage that you can see on this pic) and coving was fitted to match the existing coving.

Costs including all materials and labour are usually around £450 so it’s probably cheaper than you think to make use of wasted space!
