Re: General Election - what do we think for Battersea?

Re: Curtain and Blind Maker

Definitely would recommend Sam; she made our curtains in our sitting room, and we love them. Can send you a pic if you’d like.

Re: Glass Roof Suppliers - Recomendations

Our builder used Balham Glass and Joinery for something similar. I’m happy with the results a year later.

Re: Recommendations for GP practice?

I've used GP at Hand, a free NHS service. Really impressed with it - had an appointment on Sunday evening at 5pm, and was referred to a specialist within 12 hours.

A skilled carpenter, whose bread and butter is cabinets etc, but very adaptable.  We had a quote before he came round that was two and half times as much as Olly quoted. Just b...

Ask the accountant to suggest what you'd both need to save for your desired pension per year. In this case perhaps go higher than you would've previously s...

Re: How do you get your builder to come back and fix their mistakes?

Re: Tips for planning a side return extension

We've just completed a side and back extension - and love it, we now spend most of our time in it!
