Forgive me for boring you with this one, but I can't resist sharing good old fashioned bit of DIY (especially when it comes to houses). This lucrative man fixed and replaced a 22' section of his run-down basement wall into a brand new bedroom - for under $3000. In Sterling that's just short of £2,000. Not only is he saving a great deal of money with this renovation, he's also feeding the primal urge to fix things with bare hands - something I recommend we all do once in a while. See the full image gallery with his comments here.

A slight change in wording, but very different work! Wolfe House Building Movers in the US are in the business of moving entire properties from A to B - walls, foundations and all. Below is a photo of them in action, transporting a Victorian house just 1000 yards down the road. The lucky owners (pictured) were told by the landowners they could have the house for free, so long as they could move it. That's a bargain if I ever saw one.

My passion isn't just the removals of large furniture, it's also admiring them. None more so than this beautiful bespoke Capstan table, which combines functionality with stunning craftsmanship. How much will this set you back, I hear you ask? Between $25,000 - $75,000! To say 'handle with care' would be an understatement!

Well, what do you know? After 42 traffic lights from Beverley's infamous 'red light junction' switched off, traffic flowed smoother than before! Now, local residents are rallying to have them switched off permanently. Having crossed the Grovehill junction many times we can't say we're fond of that many stops in close quarters, but is it safe to be rid of them entirely? The people of Beverley seem to think so.

I've been fixated on this YouTube channel these past few weeks. The creator builds houses and everyday tools out of the fat of the land - carving, sculpting and forging every last element. The question is, will he settle here? It would be a creative removal request, but I dare say the vans might have trouble parking nearby...

We offer shed removals, but this might be taking things too far - a bed, in a shed, in the lounge. The logistics alone are baffling. Whatever hardy person lives here, we commend them and hope they're able to upsize soon.
