I put out a message on FB as I'm after something bespoke built for my daughter and had a reply from a carpenter. He came to discuss what I was after and we spent an hour working out dimensions etc. He went off to decide a quote and I messaged him 3 days later, he said he'd have it done by the end of the week. It's been almost two weeks since he first came to discuss it. Does it take that long to decide a quote based on cost of materials, labour etc? I'd like to chase him up again but don't want to be pushy if that's just how long this stuff takes. I don't know anyone handy in real life to ask to build it and I really want it done soon!
He said it wouldn't be as expensive as a previous quote I'd had, I explained my budget would fit around what he could do, it was a flexible job and could lead to more work. He was going to message me to let me know. He said he was really excited to build it and that it wasn't a tricky job.
