Well done you! I've been looking for about 18 months now, I think some of the builders near me think I have some kind of a building site fetish as I always walk past really slowly, scouring the site for anything I could use! I once costed it up to buy new wood, but the cost was so high  :wacko:
Acquired a third of a plot in January 2011 which was extended to three quarters in December 2011. Managed by myself and my 6 year old son.

Very lucky find, dusty.

Plot53b, you'll just have to keep watch because one day it'll be your lucky turn.
