BIY: Bodge it yourself.

I came across this at the weekend, a very old piece of work and remember the circumstances well.I was asked to do this cover the day after I managed to put a hole through our dining room floor by mending a floorboard in the room above in the time honoured BIY tradition of simply pulling on one end of the old board so that, swing like, the other end went down through the ceiling below.

I think the fee helped to pay for someone more adept than I to repair.
