    Free labour? Try local building contractors im sure someone would take you along.
    No site work though as you need tickets to go onsite.

    You tube and common sense is fine if you're willing to give things a go.

    Best Bricky (Stu Cromption) and Rodian Builds were the two channels I used before doing mine. And I asked ALOT of questions on here :)

    You could look for a small builder who is doing extensions and the like, but the problem is that inexperienced people are a liability on site and may well get in the way even if trying to help for free.

    There is a builder somewhere who longs to join the Crimson Permanent Assurance .....

    Dum, dum, dum, sail awaaaayyy

    Sail awaaaayyyyyy ....

    It's fun to charter an accountant
    And sail the wild accountancy
    To find, explore, the funds offshore
    And scourge the sholls of bankruptcy .....
