The original quote was £6,500 excluding decorating <faints> but we got a good joiner we know to do it on day rate plus materials. It will be significantly cheaper (not totally sure exactly how much yet as I haven't had the bill for materials) - less than half.
NAO - £1K? I wish.
The decorator finished yesterday and I am really very pleased with it. I felt better about the cost when my decorator told me he'd just finished at a house where he put up 12 rolls of wallpaper costing £200 per roll in the master bedroom.
