    Hi good people

    We are (fingers cross that there are no further delays) exchanging on a 1900s mid terrace property in North Devon near Ilfracombe tomorrow.

    It does however need rather a lot of TLC - roofing, leadwork, plumbing/heating, electrical, general building, windows, plastering, bathroom, rendering etc... and of course has an active woodworm infection that probably needs sorting first.

    Does anyone here have any recommendations for any of the above? A lot of this work is not green specifically but good tradesmen tend to be good tradesmen :)

    Windows, probably will be plastic sash replacements since every other house in the street has the same. Much as it pains me it would look odd to put in wood... (windows currently are brown uPVC horrors, not the original sashes)

    Any help appreciated


    Steve, if you want beautiful high-quality timber windows that look like uPVC from a distance, so they won't clash with the neighbours' windows, whisper me! Don't expect uPVC prices though! (I am not selling - just a happy customer).
    We live in Yarnscombe, near Torrington. We have a great local sparky called Martyn Waller who's done the rewire on our house, wired up the barns and the washblock in our little campsite. Can't recommend him highly enough, always able to come up with ideas to help make our project work and his work is excellent. Also, the dogs approve of him which is an even higher recommendation :)
