Offering a 1st class quality building service, is not just the key factor customers look for…. honesty also plays an important part which is why we are keen to share with you some exciting news about a small treasure box that we found during some excavation works on a recent building project in Cardiff. Highly reputable builder in South Wales

I imagine that most builders  dream about finding some hidden treasure.

Well, that is exactly what happened to us whilst carrying out some building work in Cardiff for one of our customers.

Many of our building projects  need some excavation work to be carried out, whether we are building a new ‘self build home‘ for a customer or a new House Extension, an Orangery or maybe during  the renovation or refurbishment on a property …

You see whenever excavation work is carried out, you have to be vigilant and extremely careful at all times to ensure that you don’t cause any damage to any underground utility services such as electric cables, gas or water mains or even tree roots or nearby foundations of an existing property….

Hence why whenever we see something that looks unusual whilst  excavating or constructing foundations for a project, we have to check what it is before before proceeding…  which is exactly what we did when we uncovered what looked like a small treasure box ……

What we found was very unusual indeed and yes we did think that we had struck Gold !!!

Well, we couldn’t believe our eyes… It was an amazing sight…. Then of course reality kicked in…

Not only were we excited to break the news to our customer we also knew that we would have to inform the Police so they could deal with the large quantity of ‘live ammunition’ for obvious safety reasons. It wasn’t long before we discovered that the Pistol, to our customers delight was worth a considerable amount of money…

No doubt there is some exciting historical story behind our find …..
