No Sweat Not to Worry She'll Be Jake
When Patsy Rowe decided to build her first house she thought she could leave it all up to the builders - after all, they were the experts. However, the five months she spent as Site Supervisor on the house - a job she undertook because nobody else seemed to be doing it - were fraught with traumas, frustrations and confrontations. She did sweat and she did worry because, inevitably, it was never Jake.
Her French hand-painted porcelain bathroom basin which had taken six months to clear customs, was split in half by an enthusiastic apprentice plumber; all the trees she'd carefully marked for lopping were left standing, while those she wanted to keep were cut down; an apprentice installed her spa - an apprentice furrier.
But Patsy took it all in her stride and never lost her sense of humour. No Sweat Not to Worry She'll be Jake is a light-hearted and even affectionate look at the building industry.
