Costing me thousands a week, I'm doing a site of 42 houses and miles behind.
Projects taking longer, teams of lads on reduced output, but it is what it is, its autumn the weather is variable.

It's no different in North Yorkshire,
Rendering is an 8 month a year occupation, March to October, we are now on tick over.If you still having to pull up trees this time of year and onwards your doing something wrong.
Im a mug then I render 12 months a year. Aka 15 days off a month

Been thinking the same thing. You can get pop ups like the gas board and BT use but they’re £200 plus.

I've done that last couple of years stop outside work for about 4months. Changed again this year taking one outside job at a time not to big and finish it before starting a nother. Example started a chimney last Saturday remove old cap cleard scaffold scratch coat lead bells fixed slate round chimney. Only need half a day to dash once a got a dry spell I was on it did not matter if it was 2 4 hours. . The only trouble is weather forecast is going to be my favourite program for 4 5 months now. But if a big freeze comes your really fuked then

They’re heavy and take a bit of time to set up. A pop up and pin down would be much better.
