builders in elhovo?

Postby splatty » Wed Dec 01, 2004 8:09 pm

we have just returned from bg where we put down a deposit on a property in the village of melnitsa near elhovo. Anyone else bought in this village? we are purchasing this property through bulgarian properties and on our viewing trip we could not have asked for more. however, after reading some of the threads on this bl**dy marvellous site i have become somewhat dubious about using the company to carry out renovations. when we were viewing we were told that the price of fitting a bathroom would be approx 500 euros but after looking at some of the prices that other purchasers have been quoted by bp i find this very unlikely.
therefore i would be most grateful if anyone out there has any info on an interpreter and builders in this area as i think this is the best route for me to go down. a friend of mine has just bought in Zlatinitsa also in this area so we may have a fair bit of work to complete in the coming months.
any advice/info much appreciated and to be rewarded with big bg party next time we are there :D

Hi splatty, I have a property near elhovo and I too bought through property company in Elhovo. I have now been waiting 8 weeks for just the quote for building work to be done. I was hoping to get the house wind and water tight for the winter but at this rate it will be next winter before it it gets done. I have already had work done by another builder and I got first class build work on my property and I am more than happy with the price. Alas that builder is working for someone else, I am going to try and locate his whereabouts as I have decided to start looking for another builder to complete the work and when I get definate details I will let you know.

I think if you first get a quote from Bulgarianproperties.com then go directly to Zhelio at Infrastroy ise_yambol@mail.bg or ise_yambol@abv.bg or there translator Zhivko jkasarov@mail.bg, you will find you will get a much better deal, they did my building work and my pool.

I wanted to use the builders, but we was worried that we would'nt get any more help from bg properties, if we went direct to the builders.

Builders in Elhovo

Our place is in Ustrem, which like a lot of places is a really nice village with really nice people. We have only been once since we bought it and need a few bits of work doing. We will post some pictures when we figure out how to do attachments. We are not yet fully computer literate but we,ll figure it out one day. We've seen the pictures of your place and it looks really nice, especially with the pool.
Regards from the Grizwalds.

hiya, we bought with bulgarian properties and alo had the builders round to give us a quote. The full quote for bathroom (all plumbing all rewiring, plastering, boiler fitted, sink.toilet, shower, drainage, concreting, new window, new door, also septic tank, waste away, concreting and all the plumbing and piping, glossing and filling and puttying and everything else for a new bathroom and stuff) it was about 2grand. Now when we went to elhovo we were told by other brits that the lady in the office(elvira) was actually married to the builder. I dont know how true this was, but just to let you know. I also have read other peoples posts that bulgarian properties have done a great job on hteir houses. I guess like all builders bg or gb you take your chances. The building firm named on the qoute was infrastroy.
