The home renovations seem never ending at the moment. We started the big task last year and although we've achieved lots and it's starting to look great, we're still not finished - lots to do and more money needed.
Last week we completed the garage conversion, changing it into a playroom, and the next job we will be moving onto is to get the best out of our new utility room we had built a few months ago. It's currently being used as a temporary storage room, but now we have the extension and conversion done, we started clearing the utility room out. I'm looking forward to having some kitchen cupboard units put in, and we will also be moving our washing machine from the kitchen into the utility room - but, the utility room still has no access to water and waste pipe.
This is where I need a plumber.
As much as I like the idea of saving money by doing jobs myself (aka get hubby to do it), this can sometimes be a bad idea. Especially when it comes to skill-set jobs like plumbing etc, - it's best and safer to call in the qualified tradesmen.
