the star is nearly completed by s1 builders ltd norfolk

After 3 long years of ups and downs caused by planners, an architect that stole money and messed the plans up for a year, the council, the public, environment agency, the weather, working with traditional methods, money and a lovely client that wants things right but changes her mind every two days we are almost there!

Luckily i have no hair or it would of fell out by now!

One of the biggest projects that we have worked on, but certainly the longest! Its been a roller coaster ride filled with highs and lows that have expanded our capability to deal with these types of restoration. Unfortunately the seller conned the client into believing it would only cost a set amount to restore who would not listen to my reasoning to leave well alone. But! anyway they bought it and here we are. Top off, floors and walls out, this building has almost been re built ! What a building it is too, the client has not spared any expense in the works and tried to replicate what it would have originally been like. so i have compiled a few shots of the latest and at the end will put the full photo album up from start to finish which will be several hundred photos.

How to help survive a heart attack! Did you know?? s1 builders ltd

Please pause for 2 minutes and read this: 1. Let’s say it’s 7.25pm and you’re going home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day on the job. 2. You’re really tired, upset and frustrated. 3 Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up in to your jaw. You are only about five km from the hospital nearest your home. 4. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far. 5. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy who taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself. 6. HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE? Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness. 7. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. 8. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital. 9. Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their lives!! 10. A cardiologist says If everyone who gets this mail kindly sends it to 10 people, you can bet that we’ll save at least one life. 11. Rather than sending jokes, please... contribute by forwarding this mail which can save a person’s life. 12. If this message comes around you... more than once… please don’t get irritated... You should instead, be happy that you have many friends who care about you & keeps reminding you how to deal with a Heart attack. Hold your finger down on the message and hit forward.

Humpty Dumpty fell off the wall and S1 Builders ltd re built it

Here we have a delaminated wall through which could be due to lack of preventative maintenance or it could be that the wall just delaminated with the new windows going in. The fitters should of been experienced to work on old buildings . Still it gave us work and the client is pictured over the moon with the work. So much so he wants even more under taken by us..
