Can I just big up Peter Banks?

The workmanship is superb, and done fairly quickly and at a very fair price too. I'd happily recommend him t...

Re: bargin SPLIT $5,500

Question is; is the price in US dollars or Canadian? Because if it's in Can$ then it's even more of a mega-bargain.

Re: My '61 11 window. And a question......

Some more pics, of the floor this time. I always knew that the floor wasn't as healthy as it looked. I'd even bought some new floor panels ready for the inevitable. Just as well really........ http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2725/4197031791_424d508fda.jpg The floor was mostly not actually connected t...

Re: Standard beams - new?
