    "Do you require Doors, architrave and skirting for 4 rooms.
    It is not a difficult job but will be laborious and time consuming."

    "Depends on how good you are with joinery. Doors can pose a problem if the lining is not square and is in twist. It’s essential to get the lining plumb square and parallel for the door to hang correctly. Skirting and architrave will need mitred external corners and scribed internals. Again easy enough if your confidence is up to it. Practice on some off cuts before committing to the acting room."

    "Depending on your diy skills dew to frame might not be square so could put the doors out of square when you hang them. If doing yourself best keep the old doors and put it to the new door and you will see. Not sure if you got the right wording for wooden saddles. Knowing Americans call things different from us. Skirting is easy with a chop saw as it with give you your mitre and also use it to give you your scrib cuts."

    "Hi, it’s not a big Job but it’s not a quick fix. Depending on the types of doors, what timber you use for door frames and skirting does depend on the price really. Hard wood doors would cost more than a soft wood door."

    "3 to 4 days work for a professional carpenter I would say. For a DIY person maybe a little longer depending how good they are with wood work.
    Overall I would say it is a reasonable size job.
    I hope this helps."

    "Hi, depends how big the bungalow is, and whether it’s stud walls or brick, on the older properties joiners/chippies used wood spacers between bricks and hammered in 4” nails, so when these are taken off, they tend to bring plaster with them, so it would need a touch up afterward, regards, Matt"
