Rounded Bath Tubs Cladding

One of the more challenging job, when all is but straight…

The tub cover was too small and not held in place at all. Just floating.

Work by Bib’ll Fix it.

In the past 3 years We haven’t stopped being busy, so busy that this website was neglected, well, here is a quick gallery of major projects in the past few years. I cover most trades except wall papering, plastering (large areas) and Slabbing…

New Project – Canopy over house main entrance

A new and interesting project has just been completed, the erection of a canopy over a house entrance. The build is made to measure and it can be made in any shape and size. Due to weather conditions to upper part could not be stained, but will have the same colour as the side bannister when done.

Garden Barrier with Gate

Another example of work undertaken, mini fencing.

To prevent puppy escape

Height: 90cm (3′)

Fence posts

A regular customer (a landlord) asked me to secure more of one of his property Garden Fence posts which had snapped flush with ground due to the combination of rot and Winter storms.

Organised new posts, stained them and replaced old ones, which were just planted (no concrete!) with Fast setting “postcrete”.

Shed roof

A New customer had a ripped shed roof to replace, called Bib and job done in about 2 hours.

Drainage work

A client in Dunblane had problems with his garden drainage, I quoted him for the work and he was reasonably happy to award me the task of fixing it, the plan involved digging a trench around the building, bury a drain pipe all the way (about 25 metres/yards) and cover it with gravel, all the slabs had to be lifted, jet washed and repositioned at 90 degrees, apart from the front of the house that had to be re-levelled.

A total of three bulk bags of gravel, one bulk bag of Sand was needed to complete the work

Gutters – part 2

As the client that needed to order the parts for the gutter replacement  contacted me, I proceeded to replace the thing, all done as well as a couple of other snags whilst I was there:

Wobbly children bed tightening and some wardrobe that was fixed to a wall needing moved slightly to the left.
