Replace/install Internal Fire Door Additional information: Hi
I am in the process of selling my flat and need to exhibit a letter of comfort from the Council to the purchaser. The Council have advised that I need to fit a fire door between the kitchen and hall. Could you please let me know if that is something you could help with.
The Council have provided the following specification:
"a new 30 minute self closing fire door installed, complete with intumescent strips, smoke seals, 3 hinges with latch and keep that engage when the door self closes. The correct operation of a new fire door would have to be witnessed by a building standards surveyor."
The dimensions of the door frame are approximately 29.6 inches wide x 73.5 inches tall.
There is some urgency about this as the sale is due to complete this Friday. I should be grateful if you would let me know whether you would be available to do the work early this week and provide a quote.

Meadowbank Joinery were extremely prompt in responding to the job request. Within an hour of it going live, they had attanded the property and provided a quote. They were very reliable and the work was completed to a high standard.
Unsold lead, updated details: Front door was forced open by a locksmith when the lock broke. This has left the door frame and the door edges broken and frayed and they need repaired.
I am working away at the moment so the earliest this work could start would be Friday 16th Aug but I would like the work done asap from that date. Original: Front door was forced open by a locksmith when the lock broke. This has left the door frame and the door edges frayed and they need repaired .

Replacement External Front Door required in maindoor flat of tenament block circ 1900s. Will require mortice lock, yale lock, letterbox and weatherproofing. Edinburgh based.
Gavin and his team were great. He worked with us to make sure he knew what we wanted and needed and kept in touch. The job has been done well, good quality and we would (and will) happily use Greenbuild again.
The floorboards in my hall are rotten and need replaced urgently.
All Cleaned Up Scotland literally came to my rescue during what was going to be a stressful time. They are a social enterprise company who are doing great work with their guys.
The job started out as a repair job on a hall floor and ended up being a full dry rot treatment and bathroom rebuild.
Brian, Paul and the entire team who worked on the project were excellent and took great care to ensure that my tenants were kept informed of all the works needing carried out. I couldn't recoemmend them enough.
Fitted our office space with laminate flooring. On budget and on time! Easy to deal with, good communication throughout. Managed to get materials at a competitive price for us locally and the finish is great. I would recommend their services, and am happy to act as a reference if needed.
I am looking for a bespoke design for the top of a chest of drawers. Basically my computer monitor sits on top of the chest, but as you can imagine, without a proper desk, there's nowhere really for me to put my mouse and keyboard whilst I'm using it.
So what I'd like please is for you to install two tiers on top of the chest of drawers: the top one fixed, and the bottom one set on rollers. This way my monitor and speakers can stay where they are on the top tier, and my keyboard and mouse can 'pull out' from the underneath tier.
The dimensions of the chest of drawers is:
The wood is just chipboard - seems to be an ikea job! The existing top 'slab' of chipboard is removable, only fixed by those little wooden pins for self-assembly.
I have a photo of the chest of drawers plus a diagram of what it is I have described.
Assemble 1 wardrobe, 2 door, 3 drawer Assemble 1 Ikea double malm bed Assemble 1 malm bedside table Dispose of 1 bookshelf and 1 large computer desk Fix 1 mirror to wall using hollow wall fixings Fix a second mirror to wall where wall fixing has snapped (see picture)

Replace/install 1 x solid external door Also required: install door frame Additional information: The original door was a plain slab door, with a letter box. I added a door knocker when I moved in, nine years ago. I'd like an estimate of what it would cost to replace. Looking at the framework around the door, I'd like an estimate of what that would cost to replace. I would prefer a solid wood door to a PVC door, and I definitely want a door in keeping with the property (it's a colony flat). At the moment I'm looking for estimates, but with a view to getting the work done within the next month or two.
