We live in a flat at the moment and they are ripping out the flat downstairs. It literally sounds as if it is happening in our place. We have drilling,banging etc all week so loud, often I can't hear myself speak.
Now they have started again this morning. It's DH's day off FGS and being 27 weeks pregnant with a toddler I am really missing my afternoon naps!
Did there not used to be a law about making noise on Sunday? Ok, I know they have to get it done in the week but on Sunday, it doesnt seem fair to be making so much noise.
I think the OP's point is less about Sunday itself, rather that they are working a 7 day week and she would appreciate one day without the continuous racket. If I had read correctly I fully agree as I have a building site next door, but also see both sides as my family are builders. A job to be done is fair, but so is due consideration. Maybe just ask the site foreman if the 7 days is an ongoing thing OP? May just be they needed certains things done by Monday morning for a floor to be laid or something.
I'm sorry I must be really old fashioned, but I thought that saturday and Sunday in the UK was called a weekend ie - days of rest. I know things have changed a lot but for people to not even recognise Sunday anymore as a holiday/day of rest I find pretty sad. I am not really religious,nor do I attend church on a Sunday now but I find it quite strange how our country has changed in attitude so much towards it. Anyway, that is sort of beside the point. DH has his weekend on a Staurday and Sunday. Why should he not be allowed to enjoy a peaceful time in his own home on the two days he has off?
Thats true Amber, it might not be long term, It will probably be a few weeks tbh, but now I have been sucked into a stray argument about the weekend
What if people had a job to do every weekend next door to the others of you who think it's fine? What if they decided to do all their jobs at night time? Do you all work all week and not want a bit of peace at the weekend?
I used to live next door to a genuinely horrible old woman. She would hoover her bedroom, the other side of the wall from both mine and DS's (He was 3 at the time) at 6.30am on a Sunday morning.....
On the fourth week, I got up at 6am and hoovered mine. It never happened again
Sometimes people are unaware how much noise travels. In other cases they like to be awkward... She was the latter. I have never been so glad to move house! Her gc are really lovely too, saw one of them recently outside the village shop, yelling at his mate (both 11) to 'get back here you effing c**t' Charmer
