I tend to find the customers that do that kind of thing are older. Or in the trade. Did a kitchen for my mate and the customer was a retired decorator. He knocked off all the loose plaster. Took sockets off etc. Next day hed got my extension out and ran tut from the garage ready for me. gave me loads of fishing gear too. Top chap
