Great…loved it!!!

I think the course is great…it focuses on how it can cater for your needs as in = I needed to block door ways, re-build a garden wall and build a barbie of which I learnt all 3 in just 5 days. Brilliant the cost is fair and the equipment is everything you need and more. Will say though the web-site doesn’t do them justice as it needs to show more of what you can create and state in what space of time you CAN create this !! I will be promoting this company to my friends as I believe everyone who does this will be amazed of what they can gain. Basically I loved it! 🙂

I would highly recommend this course if you want to run your own business, using all the skills I now have, I now own my own business which growing every day.

Thank you Silver Trowel.
