Not been on site in a while . Always do domestic now but it’s looking quiet at moment . Thinking of going back house bashing . A mate of mine just skimmed a two bed plot for £770 took around 18 bags . That sound about right . He’s not sure of his sqm price . It took 2 of them 2.5 days to skim it . Not great is it .

I think is around £2.80 to £3.00 . Think they take windows out which is naughty if you ask me . They Should pay bit more on smaller plots . Too much f**k**g about shifting all your gear around and getting set up

I couldn’t do it . I reckon im quite fast but to work any harder that consistently and keep my quality of work would kill me physically and mentally

Oh there rough as toast but the plots get done and firms love them sort of loons who smash through them for fun . All the do is send in a snagged for a day or two no on gives a fuk there getting done on time that's how they see it unfortunately

I was even looking into Tendering for some new Build sites but for what i can gather Time you’ve paid out lads and materials you average £400 a plot . Is it worth all the hassle and stress .
