More Skips Than You Can Shake A Stick At

Recommended Posts

Been out today and see loads of skips. 3 on one road and others scattered about.

How many have you seen recently on your travels?

Does skip hire indicate economic growth?

No, it indicates you have some shit to get rid of.

These all have had building materials in - rubble and stuff indicating extensions maybe?

(Maybe people's kids can't afford to leave home so parents extend to give them more room?)

Not seen much activity in Southern Scotland - where are you seeing these skips?

Speaking to a roofer today, he's never been so busy, nor his brother who throws up scaffolding, people aren't moving they are improving so he says.

There was a lot of that in 08/09. It seems to be associated with market falls.

Maybe, or maybe they are doing the work to make the place more saleable?

A darwinian response? As house prices fall the instinct kicks in to add an extension in an attempt to evade the HPC predator. :lol:

I've noticed that of the very few houses that sell, half are getting gutted. I presume by builders as no one is resident.

I presume the reasons for this is a) they have some money from the boom B) they don;t have a lot of other work on.

Some are getting so made over that there must be no chance of them ever making the money back.

Easy come, easy go I guess.

But I'm not complaining. I've got rid of loads of crap I'd have to take to the dump.

Burying your missus who is divorcing you and threatening to take the entire house... but who now wants cash and not the actual house... involves digging a big hole for the hardcore.

Did you see any cement mixers arriving? :unsure:
