Working mainly out on site. When it comes to building houses Carpenters are usually the first people on the site, and the last to leave.
First Fix involves the structural work (roof struts, wall studding, framing and joists etc) and Second Fix refers to the finishing work, which is usually done after the plastering for example, the flooring, doors, skirting, furniture fitting, architraves cut and fit and stair handrails attached.
And the final fix where final items are added at the request of the building owner.
