My father was also a carpenter and a builder, unfortunately as its my inheritance from him that's funding this he can't provide any advice.
I'm just about on the same lines as yourself, except I'm doing my own electrics and have got a plumber for the radiators, first fix and any gas. I've lifted the floorboards, chased out the joists and marked where the radiators and taps will be located. He seemed to appreciate that
At 51, I'm past my prime, but I'm a bit chuffed that I can still lug full sheets of plasterboard up 7 flights of stairs.
I finally got the internet yesterday after waiting a month. I couldn't find one provider that would give a connection date until a contract has been agreed - a strange sector! Now I won't have to wait until I'm home at the weekend.

Good luck Gary.Just go easy on the sausage rolls, I had far too many when doing up my first flat.
Well, done, keep going you will get there.
A couple of fit 20 something labourers for a day will cost very little and they can move a lot of materials for you.
Gary, in my journey as a developer i have learnt as in life, everything is about belief and confidence. As you break through the self doubt and fear of the unknown and accomplish a renovation your knowledge and your confidence grows and your ready to take on something bigger. I started on 1 bed flats now i do million pound developments and about to complete my latest one. After this i want to challenge myself again and get into massive major development, how at this stage i have no idea, but as long as i put my mind to the challenge and believe i can do it i am sure the answers to my questions will come!
Yes when you gut a building there is always times you will get worried and think OMG what have i done, how on earth am i going to get this finished. If i have learnt anything over the years with development its Patience. You need lots of faith and lots of patience. The build is a process and always takes alot longer than you think, but you will always get there!! Good luck mate, if you want any advice you are welcome to call me anytime 079 21 21 1974
I have done a number of New Builds and large conversions and I find it can be very hard work
Yes the gains could be there but it can be jolly hard work and very time consuming and of course you could also have a bad builder who you are
