thanks everyone, Eggy- I would rather learn to do it myself via you tube videos, than trust any advice from Bernicia. The amount of problems I had after they 'improved' my house was laughable! Reedy- my other half knows Eddie well, so I might get him to have a word, even if it is just for advice. Maggie- I would keep it if it was on the side of the house but it takes up half my garden, and is in such bad condition it is bordering on dangerous. So its the first thing to go when I get the chance. Even if I got someone to disconnect the leccy and water supply and take the roof off I would probably be able to pull the rest down myself. The wheelie bin once fell over in the high winds and knocked some of the bricks out of it, so that tells you how safe it is!
