I’m currently renovating a house in Dublin. The project has been ongoing for about a year now and one of the hardest parts of it was finding building contractors and suppliers that offered the services I needed, good value for money and were easy to work with and trustworthy. Anybody building a house will understand this and those that set out on similar projects will soon find it out! I’m writing this post to help those working on similar projects in Dublin or anywhere else in Ireland. I wanted to give people embarking on similar projects the benefit of a lot of research I’ve done into builders and other suppliers. The following are the contractors that I’ve come to work with and that I’ve been happy with.

Well as you can see, ragorder.com has been redesigned and relaunched. I’ve moved the blog infrastructure to the fantabulous WordPress after a lot of nagging by some fanboi’s I know. I’ve also simplified the design and layout. This is the first step in what will prove to be a more active ragorder.com. I intend to […]
