Having last night watched the 'shed of the year' programme I'd recorded, hoping to catch mcmoonter's entry (I didn't, wrong episode ), I'm now keen to do up my garage into a proper workshop/man-cave.
The main issue though is the roof which I think is asbestolux/asbestos cement sheet. Now I've read that this is 'low-risk' compared to proper asbestos, and that you can remove it yourself if you take the proper measures, but I really don't fancy it. I can picture myself falling through the roof, lying incapacitated in a cloud of asbestos dust, which covers all the family's and my bikes and windsurfing gear in a fine layer of the stuff. So has anybody in the North, or Yorkshire (ie. the cheap part of England, and I mean that in a good way) or more specifically Huddersfield paid anyone to do this job? How much did it cost and have you got a name and number? I appreciate this may cost hundreds of pounds but I think this will be the main expense of the 'upgrade'.
PS. In having a better look round the garage today I found a bloated dead rat floating in a bucket of water, anyone want to see a picture?
