March 6th, 2015 by

Is it possible than an urban planning method originally created during the Victorian era could solve the housing crisis Britain currently finds itself in 2015? It may split opinion, but an article online from The Guardian, as penned by Patrick Barkham, entertains the very real possibility that is could be. But Barkham also entertains the equally-real […]

We’ve all heard of these so-called “cowboy builders”; these pseudo-labourers who cut corners for the name of profit, with no prior thought of their customer. They may be giving the building and bricklaying industries a bad reputation, and ipso facto, the same for those in said industries who are honest, fair workers. However, it isn’t only […]
