    That figure came from a new redrow site

    The smaller builders pay more

    Hi guys just a quick post , I’ve been offered some new build work on the books paye , standard 3beds £320 per plot for 1st fix inc shower tray and soils, was told by the gaffers at company there doing 3 a week??? Which I’m surprised at but it’s labour only. Haven’t done new build for some time as I’m more of service and repair but thinking of mixing it up. Just wondered if it’s possible to do a 3bed in a day and a half on your own??

    Doesnt sound long enough to me.
    Dont forget testing
    The first batch you will be much slower til you get in the swing of things, Dont think I could do it that fast

    I thought that had a chat with the guys at company and they have said would I be interested in full time maintenance, now that seems a good number but never new anyone who’s done it, I suspect it’s change taps/servicing/change pumps/zone valves etc. Been offered fair price but still unsure
