Just wondering if anyone has come across any second hand builders yards in the Caldas da Rainha, Sao Martinho or Alcobaca region where things like doors and windows might be found ? I just want to knock up a tool shed and somewhere to keep bikes and other clutter.

Cheers.

Hi fmarks,

Thank you for suggesting that. I was hoping to find a place that might have some white P.V.C. windows and doors. All of the windows and doors in my new house are white P.V.C. so I was hoping to find some more of these that will blend in with what is built already. I may end up having to just go and buy new ones, but before I do I just thought that I would first look for a possible cheaper alternative.

Thank you for replying though.

Hi again fmarks,

Although brown is not what I really want, I will certainly go and look at them if you give me the contact details please. Am I correct in assuming that they are in the Caldas da Rainha area ?


Thank you,

Paul.

Do you know Pete that the Gois area has just taken a severe battering from gale force winds, the like of which I have been told (by locals) were the worse in living memory. :eek: Hope your house is still standing mate.

Yes, I am close to Caldas and live near to Sao Martinho do Porto. I am going back to ireland though for a week from tomorrow. My wifes brother is staying here though and is helping me with the work, so he knows what we require sizes etc and will go and look.

We don't have a van to shift them if they are what we want, would he be prepared to run them out here to the house ?

Hi Mr Blueskies

The flight back to Portugal will be the best part of the trip. Leaving the pressure of live as we used to know. Enjoy your trip and no moaning about the price of everything.

Good luck mate

Peter

Hi Peter,

We are heading back to the aul sod for a week. O.H. needs to get her negativity fix and to listen to the wailing, crying and whinging of her old cronies. Next they will each talk about and back stab one another. We will hear about all of their aches and pains and about who got stabbed or murdered. They are great fun. :eyebrows:


Plus there is the baby to check on. The 23 year old one that we deserted when coming here. She does worry you know.

:spit:

Hi Mr Blueskies

You can get some really good ear protection today and almost invisible it may drown out the wail of the Banshees.

If you move the baby out with you their will be less reason to go back.

Have a good trip

Peter
