Does anyone know the price comparisions and quality etc for DIY products between U.K. and romania, for example paint, laminate flooring furnishings etc, would it be better to buy in Romania or ship the stuff from U.K.
Many thanks Martin
Thanks for the info, but I was in the local Bricostore I think it was? and things like laminate flooring, tiles, bathroom suites etc all seemed more expensive,

I've been looking into this too ( we're building our house in Transylvania in the next few years). I can't really see much of a difference in price between the UK and Romania for materials. It's the labour where you can make considerable savings...about a third of the cost of UK tradesmen.

Hello Everyone, I am Martin, over 40 !!!!! from Glasgow U.K. , I will be in Bucharest between 28th November and 1st December, I would like to meet up for a few beers and a chat with some British ex pats or anyone really...... it beats standing at the bar alone,
Thanks for that, would it be possible to meet for a beer at mojo next weekend, do you have a number I could contact you on once I arrive in Bucharest?
Many thanks, Martin
The best expat bar in Bucharest is Mojo in the Old Town. Live sport from the UK and the weekend you are here there is some live stand up comedy in English.
Find them on Facebook here
Chances are you will find me there

on the Romania forum:
I am considering working in Romania coming from the UK, and I am wondering if it is best to contract or get a local employment contract. My main home will still be in the UK. Does anyone have experience or guidance on the best approach for this ?

I will be in Bucharest and looking to stay for a number of years but home is in the UK. I have accommodation lined up and am just looking at the most tax efficient approach.
I am an expat and cultural trainer living in Constanta with my Romanian husband. We are in need of a marriage Councillor urgently who is able to conduct sessions in English or someone who can conduct them via skype from elsewhere in Romania.
Any referrals would be appreciated. Again, it is urgent.
