Great points, some I definitely hadn't thought of! Number 8 is why I'm leaving the landscaping until after the reno.

Fast Eddys Rubbish Removal

As a rubbish removalist we get a lot of renovation jobs. You dont always
need a skip and in some cases, a skip cant be used because of space. You cant have skips
on the footpath, only on the street or in your property. Some council take weeks to approve a skip permit with paperwork and maps of where the skip will be placed. They also charge
for the permit.

We pickup all the rubbish and old building
materials and cleanup. We also do small jobs or large sites so it can be a better option for you

Aargh, agree with everything here! In the middle of an extension at the minute, about 5 weeks late " schedule wise" , paying for storage, heating to try to keep warm and a lot of takeaways and meals out even though we have our kitchen, but too tired to cook every day. Squabbles over the one, almost working bathroom, and arguments spilling over bricks and tiles! I know now we will probably have to redo areas that we hadn't expected to and replace old sockets and switches etc . and everytime the thought goes through your head " we can't afford this" another creeps in after " but do we ever want to do this again? " No , never! Do it now , while the floors, roof , paving is disrupted, so you never have to have a tradesman in the house again! Said that the last time we were having work done too!
