Always is the older you are ?
Probably more so for you then me, I'm used to being on site for 4 hours doing 4 floor work. You on the other hand would crucify me on the door to door stuff. As a newbie though he'll need a very hot bath when he's finished that, and probably for the next 2 days after. I know @Mark75 did 24 flats as a relative newbie and knew he'd done a days work ?

Mate for sure , I knew I had done a days work alright , I last felt like that when I was at Travis Perkins working in the Yard in my early 20's . Ian i agree with Part Timer you will know you done a Days for Sure but it will be worth It , Well Done on getting a big job like that so early on in Your New Career as a Windy

There's people on here that have been going years and never had an enquiry that size. Tenner a flat is a good 2 days wages for a days work. How big is your water tank ?
I totally understand that, that's why I'm gobsmacked mate. When I got the phone call, I was like wtf.  But I'll put a quote in n see how it goes.

Oh. Water tank not big enough, only 350ltr , but spotless water is only 2 mins away.
