Me and Jason, (Jase Hag on here) have been flat out for months and are for the forseeable future. We're boarding, taping & spray painting the drywall on most of our jobs. Sticking to small developers, builders and one offs. How is everybody else finding it?

Busiest Ive been in 4 years. Uber busy, rammed and could be working a 7 day week if I chose to.

If I was to to start taping again I'd probably be up the creek as Ive given most my leads away now.

yeah big g, but they don't want houses taped after the 2 he week in December, then they don't get u back till the 2nd week in January so we're off site for a month although the sites only close for the two weeks. You're doing well if they keep tapers on site right up till Xmas.!

far as i hear EK,their stopping on 20th and back on the 7th i think.
looking forward to it,only break ive had is a long weekend this year,sites always looked as if they were going to run out of work,to scared to take a break in case i was forced through lack of work to have time off,but was kept going, touch wood.

have not stopped,even turned work down due to lack of days in the week!
Will be doing a few weekends up untill christmas to get through the urgent houses, was meant to have an urgent house to start next Thursday except the purchaser of the house has ordered a 'media pack' that Persimmon offers with it's new builds and it has now transpired they have no one to install it! :rolleyes:
