    A friend has got an estimate for S & F new timber French Doors into what is currently a window opening. The height and width will remain unchanged. What needs doing is extending the opening downwards of the current window cill level, and forming some sort of agreed threshold on which the door-set can sit.

    He thought he had a quote for 'complete' supply and fit (i.e. remove exg window, extend opening and form threshold, and install and finish new French door-set), but when he tried to 'enact' the estimate the supplier said no, he'd have to get the builder's work done himself, 'then tell us it's finished, and within 3 weeks we'll install and finish the doors'. He does not fancy living with a couple of sheets of OSB over the opening for 3 weeks, so he ideally wants to get one firm to do the lot, so (a) he gets it all done in one go and (b) there's no risk of anyone arguing that a problem is another's fault. Failing that, if anyone knows a good 'small builder' in the Leeds area (and I know it's a dead simple task) can they please 'whisper' me?
