    Getting the Job Done with Construction Contractors

    Hello, my name is Carl and this is my construction and contractor blog. I do not work in the construction business but last year, my wife and I had a lot of work carried out on our summer home which is located on the Gold Coast. Winter storms had damaged the roof and a couple of seabirds had made a nest in there.

I learn a lot during the repairs so I decided to start a new blog. Enjoy!
