Re: Poland's economy still OK

Lots of people are building new houses in our area. Try getting anyone in Poland to do building work at reasonable rates. It's very difficult (even if they have no idea that you are not Polish). Manual workers in Poland all have loads of work. Mostly they work only for cash (no receipt/invoice).

We get our work IN POLAND done by Germans who are more reliable, do a better job, generally charge less overall, and provide receipts :|

If you live near the border I recommend this route

Re: Poland's economy still OK

Interesting - what sort of bricks are you using, what are product prices looking like at present?
Are you buying raw materials and getting the discounts or are you gifting the workers the 12% discount as part of their income?

I'm interested because I want to start building this year - any info is good
