Not seen the job yet, as far as i know they're just standard semi detached houses. What do ya mean the poles wont do it i thought they worked for pennies?
 
sound good to me we had a 2 year contract in glasgow insulation board then base coat with scrim layed into it then a dry dash we only got 12 m2 and my 3 x 1 squad had a grand a week each. but the prices are alot lower in this bloody place, i know we would do it for that though if that helps.

we offerd some acrylic work to a pole at a good rate just like all the boys were on he said no way not for this price one of the lads said to him "but you eastern europe" "you nsuppose to be same or cheaper than englis" he replied " I dont give a f**K what country your from, I dont work for those rates"

I was bowled over, shocked to the core - speechless. The rates were good I kid you not

They were cheap at first mate but not now, most people dont argue them down because they think it must be cheap just cos its a pole who is pricing, they dont shop round then.

you need to go deeper into EU for cheap labour now.
 
not like that in scotland anyway the pols are dry dashing s & c for £4.50 m2, we got £9 before those eu invaded us. now they do it for half.
