i make fking good money but would struggle to invest, id love to but money is in one hand,out the other..... there is no money in plastering these days, general builders earn more and spend half time in their vans on phone getting prices for costemers lol half the guys i know earn far too much off "TRADE" to costemer, buying firedoors for 100 quid a pop and selling them to the client for 200 quid etc.... its fkin mad, might become a builder lol

The lad I'm on for said he'd go out of business if he was labour only, theres a firm this way that rented a warehouse when the price of metal went up and filled it to the brim

Madness think on this one, a joiner i know makes fly boxes for anglers but to order only and to size etc they specify a guy rang him last week wanting one so, he is too busy with other stuff and gives him a real F OFF price £800. Bloke rings him back and says that is fantastic go ahead. materials will cost him £80 and will take approx 12 hous to make it.
I knew i was right at 16 wanting to be a cabinet maker and ended up a spread :RpS_laugh:
