Yeah, I earn about 1/4 of the average hourly rate around here. i think labourers take home more cash than I do each day! I have another person coming over to quote taking down our chimneys today. I think the materials cost about £200 to repair the floor, wall and ceiling. The first quote was £4500. Hoping a sensible one comes in, or I'll be asking here "how to demolish a chimney without killing people or destroying my home".
