    The depth of knowledge this individual possesses is the reason this renovation was only around €100,000. He isn’t a ‘handyman’; he is a master craftsmen.

      Sadly young people aren't being motivated to learn these skills. Here in Australia a lot of our tradies are immigrants. Now we're starting to see a real shortage. The low pay as well as demanding physical labour makes the job really unattractive to young people like me. I want to be able to afford rent, not even expecting to have a house of my own. I'd be living from paycheck to paycheck at best if I worked in the industry, at least right now.

      @@charlottebarham7722 I do understand the problem and I sympathise. I don't know anymore if cookery and wood working and things like that are taught in schools any more? I guess it's all about finding a balance in life. Of course we have to march resolutely towards an I.T. future (the stuff that pays well), but we also have to balance that with relearning the value of the practical stuff. What I don't understand is if less young people are going into building/electricity/plumbing/gardening/DIY the demand for a dwindling supply should increase the value of the suppliers? Maybe I'm missing something here. I hope you don't think I'm teaching you to suck eggs but have you looked into tiny homes? Or house share buying?

      @@C.E.Thomas1952 Woodworking and cookery are most certainly still taught! My sister actually took a woodworking course recently. As for the dwindling supply thing, the value of suppliers should be going up, it's just not. Corporate greed and all that. I haven't looked into house share buying and all that yet because I've got a few more years of high school to go and am still working on basic life skills like emotional regulation and recognising the sensations in my body e.g. hunger/needing to use the bathroom (I'm disabled). I won't be moving out soon at all but I'll certainly take your advice when the time comes! It feels pretty weird, I've just gone from being a carefree kid to a teen with only a few years before I'm going to be an adult and already having to think about the future. The economy sucks and I'm certainly anxious but I have hope!

    It’s nice to see somebody who is so passionate about his work that he even wipes off the excess cement from the walls under the doors on the outside ! My dad would have loved watching this - he was a stickler for doing a job ‘done right’.
    My father, who was a carpenter, bought our family home for £1,200 in 1950 in Droylsden (Lancashire at the time, but now part of Tameside, Greater Manchester) a year after he’d married our mother (they lived the first year with her parents in Burnage (it was posh once !)
    He’d actually watched this house get built in 1931, when he was 6 years old !
    (My mother wanted a big family because she was an only child and my father stated he wouldn’t be able to afford that on his wage, so he followed his father’s-in-law into the Police in 1951)
    It was a 3 bed semi detached with garden front and rear, a long hallway leading to a tiny kitchen and a long landing with a separate toilet and bathroom which he knocked into one room. He added a hatch between the dining room and kitchen and also hand made little cupboards in the kitchen for herbs and spices, medicine and staples like rice and flour. He also built fitted bookcases either side of the window in the front lounge to exactly fit my mum’s ever-growing classic novels book collection. He built a brick porch on the front with a slated lean-to roof, and a brick wall all around the perimeter of the front of the house with big white iron gates and a coal bunker to the side.
    My parents brought up SEVEN children in this home and I was the last of them.
    For years, my mother boiled up Terry nappies in the tiny kitchen and cooked wonderful meals there. She had always hoped for a bigger kitchen and my father had plans from the ‘50’s/60’s to build an extension. There was land to the left of the house which had been a public right-of-way prior to the housing estate being built (when my parents moved in, there was a big family living in an old cottage without water and electricity in the land at the side of this way) that my father contested in court to own years later but lost to the new owner of the land where the cottage once stood (a timber merchants).
    After my father retired from the Police force in 1982, having done his 31 years of service, he found the time to dig the footings, build and kit out the new extension. I remember the officer coming from the council and stating that he’d never seen such neat trenches before, nor perfect curved edges to the mortar between the bricks - dad had used a length of dowelling to make sure these were all perfectly the same !
    Dad passed away in 1992.
    I was the last to leave the family home in 2001 after my mum had passed away in 2000 - I sang ‘This House’ by Alison Moyet with tears in my eyes on the day I handed in the keys to the Estate Agent.
    PS - all the things that my dad had built in the house were still there when it was sold.

    I intend to watch all of your content.....because besides the fact you are doing an awesome job, it reminds me of several years of my life. I am 82 now and a widow but when we became empty nesters..... we made what seemed like at the time a crazy decision. Upon retiring at 63, our mission was to downsize, buy a big motor home and travel. Instead we bought a farm with a house built in 1930. So, watching you brings back so many memories. The difference is you know what you are doing and doing it well. We on the other hand went into this as DIY virgins and our retirement savings.
    We learned as we went and boy, did we learn. It took us 2 1/2 years and it was like childbirth........he'll while we struggled along but when it was over and the pains were gone......we had this beautiful baby and all else was forgotten.
    So, you are a craftsman and I am sure when all is said and done, you will be a proud papa! Good Luck and Well Done

    I've been watching your renovation on and off since you started this house but have only just caught up with the finished video. I'm in awe at the magnificent home you've created - it's just beautiful!! Thirty odd years ago we built a huge extension on the back and side of our old house and I still remember the thrill of the builders knocking through to the new rooms - particularly the large en-suite off the main bedroom - we couldn't wait to stand in the space so climbed through the window to see it from the other side 😃 Enjoy your wonderful family home!

    I love watching people do up their houses, its the ideas you get and also the "glad i didnt go down that road" i helped my parents complete a renovation approx 20 years ago to a property in France, it took nearly 3 years as i was working at the time but was worth it in the end..."edit i also like a couple who are not afraid to get their hands dirty, well done"

    By the time I started to watch your channel, I was also planning to do a similar project. Our project is also almost done now-and watching your channel was massively helpful! I was also struggling with a contractor who kept postponing the work I have already paid for and becoming dodgy. Coincidentally, you posted a video about why/how you got rid of a builder like that and how better you feel even after losing some money. That encouraged me to take a decision right on time-otherwise, I would have been ripped off further and waiting still to get the groundwork finishes. I got rid of them at the end of November and employed a new builder on the 2nd of December. Things progressed really well. They started by completing the remaining groundwork that the previous builder failed to complete and they finished everything up to roofing (oversite, concrete flooring, concrete pads, steel beam structure with 3 columns and 2 beams, walls, 2 massive roofs, floor insulation+screed etc) before the end of January. Today the house became wind proof after the installation of doors, bifold door, skylight lantern and windows. I followed most of the things you have done, but I had to go for Wren Kitchen instead as DIY Kitchens do not offer monthly payment options. The previous contractor ended up billing me twice the price he initially quoted. I also understood that he couldn't do it all for the initially quoted price, so I paid him the money he asked for. But I realised that he took the advantage of it making my budget tight in the end.
