The wedding photographer is booked. After the phone call this morning we were both happy to choose him. He does what we’d like and at a reasonable rate. There was one quote we got at £3000! I thought the £1350 was bad just for a digital package. One less thing to think about.
I had a break from the house today. Catching up with the washing. It’s helped me relax and spend time for myself.
One of the asbestos quotes got back to me today. £2152 was quoted. I sent this to my mum who, I found out later, spoke to my step dad. Him being gobsmacked about the price peaked the interest of his colleague who wanted to know why. He came back with some helpful advice.
Some council tips do accept asbestos material when they receive notice of a 24 hour period, so they can close the site down. Them accepting this at not cost for us. I believe, don’t quote me on that, means we can do it ourselves. It also needs to be secured in a way they’ll accept. In this case it needs to be double secured in heavy duty sheets, wrapped up tight.
The person needs to wrapped up themselves in safety gear, masks, overalls, goggles, gloves etc. Only the person in said outfit is allowed in the property. My step dad said he would do it. I brought the heavy duty sheets costing me £68; a big difference to the quote above.
Tomorrow starts another couple of days of house sorting. In the afternoon B and I are going to get to work on the kitchen wallpaper. The skip is getting changed again too. Filling it up will be the next task. The cellar will be getting emptied.
On Saturday, Dave and my step dad are collecting the 50 sheets of plasterboard we’ve ordered. Fingers crossed the lindle for over the door way is ready to collect too. These will be starting to go up soon. Then Sunday my step dad is removing the asbestos. Monday the utility appointment to change the pre-payment meter to a standard meter. I so want to start marking out the electrics for the electrician. It’s all coming along.
