Last week I was doing my work experiance, I did it at a building and joinery company which are based localy. On the monday i helped rip out a kitchen “That was realy fun :)”. On tuesday I helped re-roof a house in the boiling sun “another great day”. On wednesday we couldn’t do much in the kitchen as a nex floor was being laid, however i was able to put in a door frame, and after we had waited for the doors to arrive it was time to tidy up and go home “unfortunatly in the construction industy, I think that the main time consumer is waiting for mateials to show up on site”. On thursday I assembeled the kitchen and fitted the doors along with the hardware. On friday we put the units in the kitchen and added the counter-top along with the splash back called white rock “that is a complete nightmair to install”

These are the doors that I fitted

Sounds like an interesting week to me. If you had fun and learned something then it was definately a good week.

Hi Callum;

That just sounded like plain old work!

Believe me there’s plenty of time for that later!

Pictures look good though.

Good Job! I hope you enjoy it as much in twenty years. And you can just don’t let personalities and money get in your way. Remember it is fun….

I really appreciate this post. I love seeing the different design styles from around the world.

I think it is great that you got into this line of work. It will help you grow in your talent. My living is mostly from remodeling (my own business) and this has put me in a position to sell many of my own ideas and opened many doors for me. I look forward to watching you grow in your talent and skill level.

I was looking in your blog for more posts on the shop. Any updates there?
