As a newbie it might appear fairly daunting. My 2 bits of advice are, firstly, it won't take anywhere near as long as you think and secondly it will be far more tiring then you think.

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 🤣

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 😂

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

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.
