I thought I'd start a newbie thread to give y'all an insight into the world of doofaloofa
I began my self build career back in 1994 when i applied and attended a timber frame self build course in Homerton, Hackney, run by Constructive Individuals
On this 4 week coarse we learned to build timber frame, but more importantly, we had the scales removed from our eye, so's to speak, on the basics of construction methods
fast forward to 1999. My self and now wife have moved to the Republic of Ireland, had purchased a two acre site, and had started building a timber frame, block clad dwelling house
it took me two years, and we moved in on the due date of our first child. fortunately she was 4 days late giving us a bit of time to get settled in
I have been working as a builder, both for myself, clients and contractors in the intervening time until Feb of this year when i started on an extension to our house, into which we will occupy by Christmas, all going to plan
