Who signed off on that million euro house in the first place?You better believe it
I am sitting in a million euro house as I write fixing shoddy workmanship for the new owners, the standard and regulations may have been updated but the same mindset exists unfortunately
CorrectWho signed off on that million euro house in the first place?
That's the problem here, so called architects and engineers signing off on any old shite as long as they get paid.....
Hold on there a minute, the guys on the ground in the industry couldntt give a fly... fuck what they do as long as they get paid, I am fed up fixing expert polish carpenters work and any other many other jobs. It's all about money and profit and they employ the cheapest they can get, lots of foreign cowboys who haven't clue what they are doing but aren't long realising they can get any way with any old shite.But this is the point.
Who designed that type of crap, who signed off on it?
Retards like to blame the guy doing the work on the ground, but he's just doing what the clowns who designed it have told him to do.
But who is going to do anything about it,
This government will do nothing to hinder developers and the housing market,
Well, I did say that.Hold on there a minute, the guys on the ground in the industry couldntt give a fly... fuck what they do as long as they get paid, I am fed up fixing expert polish carpenters work and any other many other jobs.

If you try to do a good job they don't want you waste time
I don't tar all with the same brush,Well, I did say that.
That's why I only employ experienced Irish tradesmen.
Again, don't tar all tradesmen with the same brush, there's good and bad everywhere.
Fact is, it's up to people like me to oversee and pass their work, and if it's not done to my satisfaction it gets done again or they don't get paid.
If only the scum engineers and architects were so vigilant instead of taking backhanders from dodgy developers we wouldn't be in this mess.
When the chop saw came in it created a lot of carpenters very quicklyDespite what anyone says about the old FAS (Industrial Training Authority) or better still when it was Anco there were good teachers recruited from their own discipline and industry. They trained and turned out good craftsmen as the apprentices also used to go to the College of Technology Bolton Street or Kevin Street (electrical). These courses were 44 weeks full time (40 hours a week) and that was considered the first year of your 5 year apprenticeship. Really good lads were turned out of that system until FAS and the suits got a hold of Anco and little by little they whittled it away until it was down to 24 weeks and only covered less than half the material. It was a disaster, the whole thing fell apart. They told the teachers the courses were too expensive to run and in Germany, this is the way they do it. Rubbish as it was only half the truth. Anyway, that is why your door sticks and stairs creak and windows leak with draughts. All the good guys left for sunnier climes. I asked a so-called carpenter one day was he not going to miter that joint, he looked at me with wonderment. Enough said.
