Rate my Brickie….
Tell him how much you’re prepared to pay for the whole job and see if he’ll do it off that?
I might give him a day to make some progress or I’ll find someone else. Weird thing is he’s a neighbour’s son (neighbour is a retired builder), so I was expecting some hard graft as ripping off your neighbours isn’t the norm…Posted 5 years ago
Hmm, will be having a discussion tomorrow am, today he’s managed 30 bricks and maybe 40 blocks.
So about 45 minutes to an hours work then.
Unless he tells you that he had to leave site at 9:30 and couldn’t make it back (for a very good reason) then I would be telling him to **** off and be getting another brickie in.Posted 5 years agowrightysonMember
Footflaps can you just clarify your quants? 600 blocks? That’s 60 sqm, where’s all that lot going?Posted 5 years ago
Also he’s not a Brickie, I can tell that just by the way he’s loaded out his gear and how he’ set out.
Also bit of rubbish spouted up there! There ain’t many Brickies who are labouring to themselves who’ll lay a thousand a day on their own. If so most would be coming to work in porsche vans and having Fridays off!
Also wallop unless your in central London you are paying way over the odds! Average block prices to the baron at the mo £11 ish a metre, with the lads possibly getting £8.50, which makes his progress even worse to swallow to be fair!
Building size is 8m x 4m, so ignoring openings, we have three walls of blocks 8+8+4 = 20m. 20m long x 2.6m high = 52m2 plus one gable end in blocks (another 4m2) = roughly 60m2 (with pillars every 2m).
Front wall is 4m high gable end, 4m wide with 1.8m x 2.0m door opening = 660 imperial bricks.Posted 5 years agowrightysonMember
No that’s just how anyone would want them, you then would make individual stacks of say 20 with spot boards in between so you can feed of each pile as you run the line. Apologies re questioning your measure, I just took a quick look at the photo and didn’t look anywhere near 8m in length.Posted 5 years ago
