This was probably confusing it was 4 metres of new fence and then 3 metres of wall that needed trellis on top- still a good price imo
Can anyone recommend a carpenter to replace some internal doors and sort out door frames please? Maybe a banister or two.
So I think there might be a problem with the box above my door, the cable that runs from there to the phone master socket or the master socket. Anyone recommend a freelance phone engineer?
sparkybird is this sort of thing covered by general electricians?
quimcunx it'll be cheaper to get it done by a sparks, might just be a loose connection or damage to the cable that runs between the two points.
I'm out of action for another month and a half though
What have you done to yourself?
Can I have a go myself? I managed that bulb socket thingy.
Can you take the cover off the box? If you can see a loose connection maybe you can fix it yourself. There's nothing high powered running through phone cables so you probably won't electrocute yourself. Too much.
Oh, I already did this but couldn't see anything. My houseguest is often seen to be rolling his eyes at me fiddling about with electricity. It's turned into a bit of a hobby. I don't even think that it is a problem with the wire but me and Damian at Zen are at our collective wits end. I'm not going to bother being proactive ever again. Things were better when I stuck with Talk talk knowing they are terrible.
Have you done the same to the master socket? I think when you take the cover off, inside there's a "test socket" that you can try plugging into. Or something.
Not in my instance, that I noticed. My socket has a little trumpeting BT man from the 90s on it. The other little box, above the door, is older than that I think, as is the cable.
I am after someone to plaster my living room ceiling. No artex or anything should be very straightforward. Does anyone know of anyone decent?

Any electrician recommendations?
Sparkybird is ace
#ok I'll pm. Thanks.
I need a coat dry cleaned for a wedding Saturday. But no time to take it anywhere until Friday. Does anyone know a same day dry cleaner please? Nearest to Brixton preferred. Cheers.
I am looking for a portrait photographer in Tulse Hill / West Norwood / Brixton. Just to do a quick head and shoulders shot and send me the jpeg. Does anyone know anyone?
xsunnysuex - I think the dry cleaners on Acre Lane just opposite the old Town Hall can do same day - on the same parade as Bamboula, Traid, Banks Opticians etc.
Thank you. Will try there.
FYI John came and did the plastering and did a superb job at a reasonable price. Nice guy too.
Yeah he's ace. Have used him a few times and recommended him on here before.
I need two non standard doors hanging : any recommendations?
No help but we passed yours on Saturday and saw the door outside!
Lol. No one wants that door!
Hello! I am looking for a gardener to clear my garden and strip in right back so that it is ready for a 'new lease of life'!! Recommendations would be really welcome!
Still looking for door person/carpenter -one person was recommended but can't do it yet
Can someone recommend a painter/decorator and also a gardener?
Best locksmiths? Ta.
It may be worth saying that my boyfriend is a general builder but also available for handyman-type jobs. PM for his contact details.
