..... to think that anyone doing noisy DIY in their front garden at 7.30 on a Sunday is an arse?

It started at 7.30 with chucking bricks about and scraping things with a trowel and now he's started with sodding power tools.
I was awake anyway but that's not the point.

Bollocks. That's how pissed off I am. Yes it's Saturday.

But they still doesn't make it ok.

Its Saturday today , on a Sunday anytime before 9am would be unreasonable but I would be less bothered on a Saturday.

Thing is, Saturday morning is a normal work day for lots of tradesmen eg. Builders/joiners, particularly in small companies, so I don't really have an issue on a Saturday. Sunday is a totally dufferent matter!!!

This isn't a tradesperson, just the neighbour. He's retired as well so it's not even a case of this being the only day he can do it.

Any day really early bugs me! It's bad enough listening to it throughout the day.

YANBU I have taxi driver next door who works early doors every day of the week. So about 4:30am, I get house door bangs, gate rattles and bangs, car alarm beeps, radio on and car door slams, diesel engine revs. When I first moved in it disturbed me everyday. Then I sort of got used to it and it only started to wake me maybe 2-3 times per week. Did mention it to them, he not bothered. But this week told me he has new car and less noisy engine. I said good, but what about the door,gate,alarm,radio? Funnily enough he didn't comment. I need my sleep! I know he needs to work but a little consideration would go a long way. Just saying

It wouldn't bother me, I am never asleep that late. But I wouldn't do it myself, but like I wouldn't let my children go outside to play at that time. So I guess yanbu.

9 am Saturday
10 am Sunday

That would be my rule of thumb.

When our ndns had their extension built we were told the workmen arent allowed to start noisy work before 8 on a weekday and I think it's later on a Saturday. 730 not acceptable.

Well he started a 8 today.
Already awake but I still think it is a dick move.

Maybe he's trying to get back at neighbours near him who let their kids out on trampolines early doors just like mine....
