    rents reflect house prices and thats been the case for a long while its the multiple of wage needed now, our first house was 2 1/2 x my annual wage it would be 6 or 7 now

    Easy for me to get work, wherever I land, but would need property big enough for kids etc,.

    Not really advertised it but not out of choice, circumstances and all that, and now weeks away from the pitter patter of little feet means I have a whole lot more to think about in the event of a future move :eek::rolleyes:

    If I were to buy where I rent now it would be 9X my wages.

    Just went to tell the dog off for digging and then realised he was playing croquet down the lawn with a hedgehog :eek:

    If you need space for kids this will do...

    What you have said above is exactly why people get priced out of an area. I moved area by choice but I wouldn't have stood a chance. All you'll end up with is the lucky ones and city boys I think. As soon as someone can commute to London from a place the standard working man gets priced out. Bath seems to have its own micro economy too

    I have a solution anyways. Move over these ways and we can sort you a nice job and house. Then in return you can do the dirty work on the disco and save me the fun bits :D

    @Hicap phill I finally got the door off. I left my drill at home again so ended up wrestling with the thing. Luckily it was dead so I could treat it badly. Do you know what kind of money she will need per door?

    A share bag of rust chips fell out of the bulkhead. Very close to lifting now but was held up by piping. Sprayed the slave with a coat of oil so I can disconnect more easily on next visit hopefully. I think there's about 4 bolts and that union then lift.

    I get the torque on the lock nut is simply to seat it but I just don't see the point in these box wrenches. **** knows why I bought it. Oh well it has other uses lol
