assistance would have been most welcome, i assure you, :mrgreen:

logistics would be a issue though :D

im going to have him back in the new year to deliver all the block, sand and cement, cheaper than a merchants, thats for sure. hes also going to help me get the last ton or so of crap out the bottom of the pit, so i can pour the floor.

at £60 a load, hes a blinding good deal, all things considered.
