    Yes I was wondering the same thing, but I guess Johnny was talking about a straightforward swap.

    I will tell that to my customers.

    No, i forgot to mention that the price didn't include door, frame, architrave and hardware.
    In other words i only include fixings, adhesive, nails and small things needed.

    Am I still too cheap???

    I never spent longer than half a day on a door, maybe i've been lucky.

    I'm moving to wales then.
    I would probably be able to buy a castle in a couple of years considering that houses go for £66k.

    plus £8500 deposit , that’s 74500.don’t doubt me, look for yourself. plenty of terraces or ex local authority semis at that price in decent areas with 3 beds and large gardens.

    Haven't decided between plastic or wood yet. I want wood but other half doesn't. (Wood I think suits our Victorian cottage). We've decided to do it ourselves because of the quotes.. well, I've elected other half to do it :) :)

    We had our front door done last year coz of the p-heads who kicked in in. Luckily on insurance because was 1.5k for a half decent composite and frame.

    £74500 around me will probably buy a garage, maybe.
    One bedroom flats in shythole areas go for £250k.
