Roof Replacement Guide

I’ve been in the construction business for over a decade now, and I’ve pretty much seen all there is to see when it comes to home construction, roof installations/replacements, wiring in the home, plumbing stuff and everything else you can find as part of building/restoring a home.

Wiping Bums to Writing Mums

Even though EVERYTHING changes after having children, we still feel the pressure to slot back into the same routine as before. For some this might be possible, but for those who, like me, had irregular working hours before having kids, this is quite a big ask. Going back to working evenings and weekends just wasn’t going to work in the long term, so how did I find a solution?
