    builder quote 11th Sep 17 at 6:24 PM

    Got a quote today from a builder for 1200

    For the following:

    Paint open plan living room and kitchen about 115m2
    Remove 2 wall lights and plaster over
    Install 2 ceiling lights
    install 5 sockets and 3 switches
    install new garden door.
    Take off old thermostat and plaster over

    Provided by me final colour, 2 lights, 5 sockets and 3 switches.

    Does this sound about right? based around midlands

    When you say install switches and sockets, do you mean new sockets where there weren't any before or changing the covers?

    Only changing the covers for the switches and sockets.
