I'm trying to find out what type of builder does this job, so that I can look into what's involved and maybe do it as a career. It would mean buying a house (not a business or factory), repairing and upgrading it then selling it on. I would do it all myself and/or pay others to do the work with me.
Does the job role even exist? Thanks.
(UK) I am a job hunter and considering alternative options. I am normally a building surveyor, but impacted by the recession, lost my job. I am wondering, would I be able to hack it as a labourer ? I am small ; about 9.5stone or 60KG. I am reasonably fit. How hard is it physically to work as a labourer on a building site ?
I was thinking on being a Building surveyor, but if i could, i'd like to skip University (as it's not something I was hoping on doing) so i'd like to know other good jobs in the Construction Industry that may not require attending Uni and instead just do an Apprenticeship. I'm currently studying A levels at Sixth form, so I have a reasonable amount of time to find a sector to work in. (I would also like a job that gives well paid money lol)
Is it a building surveyor, a building consultant or an architect? We have a Grade II listed cottage and we want to extend at the rear and slightly at the side. There is already an extension at the rear on ground level and we want to build above that and to the side. Although we live in a conservation area, we feel we have a good chance of getting plans approved, however we're a little bit unsure who you're supposed to approach to draw up the plans. Can anyone help with some advice?

Live in an 8 year old house, the roof is quite tall (3 storey property).
Built 2004, noticed bump in the roof, NHBC came out, inspected it and "fixed it". Unfortunatelty their contractors cut through 4 roof trusses without engineers being on site. Of Course they have all failed.
Also, In addition to this - when we have high winds the loft room (thats how it was built) completely shakes (I believe its the roof) and I can see a visible tremmor of things on my desk - each time there is a gust of wind.
The questions I urgently need to know:
1. How do they test to see why the loft room is shaking under windy conditions
2. Is there a set procedure for testing the structural integrity of a room ?
Oh forgot to mention, the roof has not been strapped to one of the walls.
I have been told that if the roof is moving, its likely to be that the anchors of the roof have not been tied into the wall below the roof but not sure if this is true.

My mortgage company is expected to conduct a valuation survey before it decides to lend me money. Meanwhile, I will have a Building Survey.
To save money, do you think the mortgage company will accept my Building Survey, instead of asking another surveyor to do the same job? My mortgage advisor doesn't encourage me to do this, and I suspect they want me to do both for money reason.
