    To be fair all but one were only here for an hour. Once it was on the beam lifters it took minimal work. The thought of doing it was actually harder than the doing !

    Barring the steel only £111 paid out for the beam lifters. None of the people who helped were builders all just mates.

    Me and a mate would have done that in flip flops. Maybe fashioned some temporary supports out of roofing lath (cheaper than 4x2)

    Flipflops? We’d do it in clogs that we made ourselves from the 4-by-2.

    I would've done it on my own without any support, naked whilst eating a sandwich and drinking a beer...
