Welcome mate.....Anywhere near Belfast? I've been there quite a few times....and I could sure go for a good pint of Guinness right now.

When you get a chance....post some pics....

One piece of advice....move in and live in it for awhile....get an idea of what really needs to be done....what you want to do now could/will change after your there for awhile.

Also remember that every project takes longer than you expect, cost more than you budget and involves a lot more dirt than you though possible.

Cheers....

I now live in Southern California....my wife is from England...the 'X' was from Scotland...

I know where Partadown is....I spent quite a bit of time in Dunmurry....Shorts Bros....the old DeLorean factory....

Yea....you have to factor in the 'beer expense' when costing out projects....

BTW...it helps to put your location in your profile....it helps give you the right answers....
