    Looks good so far.

    One thing I would change is where you say "we do not currently charge VAT", not everyone will realise this means you are not registered and so dont have to, some may just think you are dodgy.

    It might be better to reword to explain why you dont, so they know everything is above board.

    [size=large]I agree on the above. Also, is it possible to put up the picture before and after the renovation so one can see the difference? That would work as a testimonial, since the perspective customers do not know you or how you work, they only base their judgement on what they see and read on the website.[/size]

    On your homepage the MyHammer links (Babysitting, Gardening, Cleaning, Removals, etc.) are more prominent than the specialist services you are offering (as they're detailed on another page), and the animation draws the eye away from the links to your services.

    So even if Google, etc. were find your site, visitors may immediately get the wrong impression and pursue other search hits.

    Done all that I was able to with regard to everyones suggestions :dbgrtmb:

    Thanks ever so much you guys, a really big help to me.

    Not been here much past few days as have been trying to get some "Before" pics off the ancient water wheel powered computer.

    It wouldn't connect to the internet, no matter what I did, it wouldn't copy onto a CD. Tried linking the computers together, no luck. Finally found an external 3.5 inch floppy drive, copied the pics onto floppy disk & spent the past 4 hours trying to download the correct driver, to no avail.

    Eventually went into the guts of my computer & fooled it into thinking an NEC systems driver was its driver & IT WORKED :dbgrtmb:

    Here is the result,

    Before

    And after.

    Blimey, that was harder than doing the work:DOH:

    I didn't know such a thing existed until I was searching for my homemade car cigarette plug in lap top charger thinger & found it in the "Electric stuff" bucket :DOH:

    Reason I was looking for that was that I thought I would be stuck in the car for 2 hours while my Son had his interview at Bridgewater College.

    Oh No, we got there & my Son dragged me into the interview & lecture, wish he had said before, I would have changed out of my work clothes :DOH:

    But : The main news of the day.

    MY SON HAS BEEN ACCEPTED FOR THE ENGINEERING COURSE AT COLLEGE :dbgrtmb:

    Fantastic news - please give him my congratulations when he rolls in from the celebrations :)

    Well done. My suggestion is that you set yourself the task of adding one article per week (more if you can) to your web site. That will improve your Google ranking. Getting people to link to you will help to - you can review how many links you have, as time goes by, using this search (just put it into Google's Search)

    links:searchfieldhistoricbuildings.co.uk

    If any of the links look bizarre use the CACHED link to see what the page was when Google spidered it. Sometimes it is what link to THAT page that is counted.

    :yess::yess::yess:THE BIGGEST THANKS EVER GOING OUT TO ALL OF YOU:yess::yess::yess:

    Just have a google for "Lime Plastering, Somerset"

    Or "Lime pointing, Dorset"

    First page of google :dbgrtmb::dbgrtmb::dbgrtmb:

    Have got the wrought iron shovel sorted out now & should start to dig my way back out of the long cold hole that was the recession.

    Starting a small wall re build tomorrow, got a gable end to stop collapsing on friday & hopefully it will carry on thanks to your help:thumbsup::hapfeet:
