Materials thru the roof here, but all gettable it would seem, hearing of folk having 6-12month waits for builders/roofers to start a job, cousin finishing off a house next door at min and every trade is flat out, them getting labour being the biggest issue. Also heard materials could go another 50% in next 6 months! Hard to know! , we have notion of a small extension but gonna park it for a year or two I think to see how it pans out... (NW of Ireland btw!)

When houses are expensive , people extend or renovate , hence busy builders .

Trowel pixies here at the moment.
Spend time sourcing materials for the build but if they turn up don't let them go away.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
