I have difficulty allowing others to work on my house. I find it very stressful getting tradespeople in. The usual conversation when discussing the required job goes some thing like this:

Me "I want this, and this done, and it needs to be done like this and that."

Trades-person "No one does it like that any more." or "That'll look old-fashioned." or "I can make it look more modern by doing it another way."

Had none of that with today's trade. Mick the plasterer arrived on time, did the job, no fuss, no drama.
We'll be having him back soon to do the stairs and landing.
