Aidan Power 0:05
with the biggest build in Ireland series two of DIY SOS. seatbelts on,
check your mirrors, volume. The under construction podcast with Asian power and Fred Cook's talk starts now.
Aidan Power 0:22
So Fred, I believe you've done a very manly man thing this week. What is it?
Fred Cooke 0:26
I claim called Patrick Can you believe it? Aiden? Did I did his pictures on Instagram to prove it? Nothing's real on Instagram. No totally this but cool Patrick it's a it's like a fasting event like you fast before and so no one told me that so i'd big massive chicken combo the night before and then went up a pizza with no water like
Aidan Power 0:49
Well, I guess you kind of cheesy because most people open their bare feet Dante.
Fred Cooke 0:53
Exactly. Yeah, yeah. Well, I might as well go on my bare feet. My runners are so crap.
Aidan Power 1:00
Well, what an achievement. And you live to tell the tale. So where? Yeah, well done. That is manly. Well, this week we're chatting about Ortiz construction show DIY SOS. Of course, it's where the entire community come together to take on a construction project and do it in record time. And, Fred, when you watch a show like this, it's a timely reminder of that sense of community that is there that maybe is not visible to us every day.
Fred Cooke 1:23
Oh, absolutely. You know, I love that show for the good side of community. Joe growing up, I had a wonderful community in my hometown in Cal Tech, especially when I was a child five or six. You know, we read such freedom we could go anywhere then in the 90s you know, we were free. In the estate. I remember calling Ryan to a neighbor's house is now I didn't know who these people were. I just called him because the door was opened. And I just had food with them. I sat down and then I went to next house and had loads of food. I put on a lot of weight now and was five years of age I want to go home and mommy like Oh your friend your food's ready. And I'm like, I've eaten I've eaten I've had an Indian was a wonderful family and I don't know who they are. But thank you anyway.
Aidan Power 2:02
that's taken the whole you know, leaving the door open to a whole new level. Exactly. Yeah, go into strangers houses and and be offered hospitality and food
Fred Cooke 2:12
are definitely and I'm not saying that can't happen nowadays. The only thing is if if a six year old goes into someone's house, people are like, Where is that guy's parents? That's called guards. So but you know that neighbors are fantastic. Like, have neighbors ever be nice to you, Amy?
Aidan Power 2:29
Oh, yeah. Well, I'm the current neighbor who keeps baking me bonds, but I'm suspicious what she's putting in them. And when we were young, like you growing up, yes, it was an amazing togetherness and sense of community. And I remember our neighbor next door, Joe, he helped save my life actually. Well, maybe that's a bit dramatic. But I managed to chop off top of my home. When I was about 10 or 11. And it was my own fault. We were doing knickknacks on one of the lads houses down the road, just massive. And he was opening the door and then he slammed the door and then we've now can eat up the door and slam the door and I got fat bored of this. So I decided to put my thumb in the hinge of the door of the front door. And he opened the door and he slammed the door.
Fred Cooke 3:12
Oh, and when it came out feel pain. You can feel pain when you feel it. I felt it there.
Aidan Power 3:17
Yeah, well, I couldn't be more descriptive when when he opened the door my home the top of it was hanging off. It was just dangling off in the blood and flesh and all sorts anyway, I ran off the road screaming. My mother was Hoover in the house. My dad was at work. It was back in the day where you were lucky enough if you had one car in the family and my neighbor Joe who just happened to be home, put me in his Ford Courtine and whisked me to cromolyn hospital with me Tom was saved. So thanks to Joe's swift actions. I'm now still ambidextrous
Fred Cooke 3:50
you should you should call right this has been Spanish guitar and thank him for his good deeds. He hit the base on which your tongue goes. This is because of you.
Aidan Power 4:03
And then I had the nickname Tom Tom, but I couldn't tell if that was because I had to be Tom saved or I was very short. Anyway, we'll be talking plenty about building community on the show. today. We're gonna be chatting with buyers ash Maui from DIY SOS and Dermot croak from chadwicks
trade talks. Tips and Bandra, this is the under construction podcast from chadwicks pledge getting done.
Aidan Power 4:27
First let's get to our photo of the week where you send us a picture of some work you're very proud of on WhatsApp and we share it with everyone listening right now if you look at the phone or whatever you're listening to us on you should see a photo of and I say this in air quotes a coach. This is from Alan from East Coast upholstery to tell us a little more.
Unknown Speaker 4:44
Hi this is Alan here from East Coast upholstery. In the photo above you can see a deep buttoned Chesterfield suite brought back to the frame and restored completely.
Aidan Power 4:56
literally brought back to life. If if that couch She was a human, that would be a Do Not Resuscitate sign up. Beyond saving, or is this? Clearly, Alan proved otherwise? What
Fred Cooke 5:10
do you think of a friend? Absolutely. When you see the couch in his decrepit state before he does it, he'd go, why would you bother to know what I mean? That's not, that's not even out of laziness, because I couldn't see any value in making that any better. So I was actually blown away by what he did with it. It's just It's incredible. I wonder, could he do the same with me and make me look 21? Again?
Aidan Power 5:33
If you can do that to a coach, what could you do to our friend? Well, remember, if you'd like to share photos, some work you're proud of, and share it with everyone listening as our photo of the week, just send us a WhatsApp photo and voice message to tell us all about it. Oh, eight 777 54 triple five is our number. And as always, you'll get that in the show description
under construction with chadwicks over 40 stores nationwide. So we're always local.
Aidan Power 5:58
buys, actually my way is one of Ireland's most recognizable TV broadcasters. And we can currently see him very soon on DIY SOS. On Orci one where buyers and his team set out to renovate the homes of families and change their lives forever. And that really is what it does. Baz Welcome to the podcast. How are you? I'm rockin rollin. How are you? You are rock and roll. You've always been rock and roll. Yeah, no, no, you do it in a hardhat
There you go. Listen, look, honestly, my niece's low birth when I first got the DIY SOS job, she literally fell off the bed. And laughter she actually she actually laughed for so long. It kind of hurt my feelings, where I was like, Oh, you fuck off like cuz I'm just I'm not that guy. I'm just not, not handy. Like my toolkit is literally an Allen key in a butter knife. And, man, I get this chadwicks calendar every year you vote has these different advent calendars. So most of my tools of COVID is not advent calendar. Like I've nothing I know nothing about DIY or building or anything like that. So I probably wasn't the best choice in that sense. You know?
Aidan Power 7:07
Well, a bit. So you've like little mini screwdrivers? Oh, yeah,
tools. Yeah, careful break a toy car, anything like that. I'm your mom, I got all the tools for that, you know?
Aidan Power 7:17
Well, regardless of your DIY credentials or not, you are the the perfect host of a show like this, because you've made some remarkable television in the past. That is not just entertaining, but it but it has meaning to us. So when you were approached to do this show, was it the perfect fit for you? Because it aligns with your own beliefs about helping people. I
like I like to feel service. Do you know I like I like people. And I like getting close to people and having fun. And I've always thought and TV does a lovely balance, if you can get it right, is that balance between making someone laugh and then actually doing something poignant, you know, and it's a good balance to get so yeah, so yeah, wherever I'm the best house for I don't know, because I'm a bit soft, you know, me at I'm a bit a little bit. I'm a little bit soft as a man. So as sometimes I'm probably a bit over emotional or something like that, when with some of the stories I find, I think when you're anything with DIY SOS, you find yourself in the shoes of the family a lot of the time, like if you have a daughter, you kind of relate to your own family, or your partner or someone you loved or your parents or you know, and you can't help but kind of keep checking yourself and going What am I moan about? What am I complaining about? You know me my missus lover, man, we moan about everything. And then you go down there and you see families dealing with stuff that's heavy, heavy, you know, heavy burdens and data that I don't know how they get up and cope everyday but they do it you know, and all of a sudden that makes you kind of look at yourself a bit and and kind of reevaluate what was what you're complaining about, you know,
Aidan Power 9:02
and the the strength and the unity and the force of the the people that come together to in some way alleviate that burden and and quite often it's it's in a dramatic fashion in terms of the work that's done on DIY SOS last year what what was what struck you most about the the volume of people that would come to help on a project and the love people had for one another tip to help out in a time of need?
I'll tell you what it was for me. I'm an egomaniac, right. I like I like, like, I love TV. I love being on TV. I love it, the more time I'd get the better, you know, these people would come down, like hundreds would come and then I'd have to run around syce to interview them and they'd run away from me and I was like, that kind of shows you the type of people that they are there. They're not there for the camera. You know, they're there just because they have they're skilled laborers and they can do something to help that family but The majority of them have very little interest in the TV side of it. They just, they just want the bill do the bill. But of course we're making a television show as well. So and but they're just really good, good people. There's a little sense of GAA about us in the sense that people get very high deliberative. Oh, did they, you know, you could wind them up, you can wind them up a little bit, and I thought it would be more clannish. But people came from everywhere, like we did builds in Limerick. And people came from Donegal every morning. And they were driving home every evening like madness stuff. But I suppose it's just that thing, again of hearing a story. And I think sometimes when you do something you love as well. And there's a great Christy Moore quote, he said, Be careful getting paid for something you love, it soon becomes a job. And as an element, we all know if that square, you know, after a while, it becomes a job and I'm sure for the sparks or the plumbers or all these people, it feels the same. But all of a sudden you take money out of us and they're doing doing it for for a family for for a little girl who has brain damage. You know, they're they're doing for other reasons, it starts to feel difference. And it's feels a bit special. And I think that's the that's the juice. That's that's the thing that gets people It feels really good to do good things. I know that's corny bumper sticker stuff, but it does. It's why the same people go, where are you doing the next one? I'm like your mind. Sorry, I need new faces. Like you can't, but they keep coming. They keep coming. Because Because it feels really good. It feels really good to feel like you know, if I'm driving to Tipperary sometime and I actually passed that house, I'll have a little note to myself. I'm gonna go we did we have a family in there. We have a girl there that feels that feels nice. I want more of this, you know, regarding very lucky I get to do that little bit, you know, where you got to show them around the house afterwards? Like I get to do I feel so bad because they go look, thank you. I haven't lifted a thing. Like all I've done is go around pointing and chatting to people, but but I get to see that expression, you know, and I suppose that's the hook for me like getting to see that. And I get to get close to the families and then go down to site and chat to chat to everyone on site and and tell them what I've learned about the families. And I get the best of both worlds. I'm kind of spoiled in that regard. You know, I get to hang out with the families. And then I get to have the crack with the the girls and lots on sites. And yeah, I really love us. I have to say a lot. I love the show.
Fred Cooke 12:27
There's a wonderful sense of community bonds in the show. And do you think you're particularly good at keeping our communities together? fragile? I
think so on Yeah, like, like, yeah, I think there's an element of being Irish that's been forgotten or not illustrated. It's not the clips of St. William Street to get me it's, you know, Carnage that you look and you think God, the world's gone mad, and everyone's batshit and you know, and then all of a sudden, there's something integral in I wish people were were really good people, we work communities that really looked after each other. And maybe it's not illustrated to people, we don't see it. But when you're part of it, do you think this feels right? This feels like I prefer the Irish one to be at this one. And that's nothing to do with anything other than I just think Irish builders at the crack. You know, that diverse dinner ladies are just filthy. They're just hilarious. You know, they're there. There is a sense of community because we're small. We're a small country that makes this big noise all the time. And we're really proud of that, you know, and Yeah, I think so I think community, this doesn't work with our community. I keep telling them on the first day. Look, you might think this is weird. This is magic TV week, we're going to come down here and magically make this house Let me tell you that that's not happening. Like you're going to do this, like we're a capitalist, but you you 120 odd people, you're going to make this happen. And they do and then you get all these, you know, these businesses that that like everything from every packet of crisps to screw to roof extension, painting, fluffed pillow, everything, everything is donated. And you're like, Wow. You know, like that's, that's amazing that you can make that happen. It's using TV in in a really clever and in a really clever way to get good stuff to happen for good people, you know?
Aidan Power 14:21
And on that bias. What role are chadwicks playing in season two of DIY SOS
I think they're all over to be honest with you. They're there. Now I was slightly abused. I think someone put me in a wheelbarrow one day which I was. I did I did this because I'm weak boss was and I felt bullied after but no chadwicks are doing like they're they're supplying everything like they're down there. They're brilliant at AC. Again, it's back to that thing without without big players like chadwicks you're not going to guess you're not going to be able to do these gigs. You're just not going to be you just couldn't like some of these bills. They go into the hundreds of 1000s Well, I'm getting ready to build now. And I was joking, and it's a gentleman who has a motor neuron disease in Wexford. And there's two types of motor neuron disease, one could last for years. This one, he was diagnosed with a big two years now, it's a very short amount of time. And we're gonna build a house. Like we're in a field, and his uncle gave him a plot of land. He's one son who's autistic, we're going down there, and we're gonna, we're gonna build a house. And I was like, did you see this show before? Dude, like, we, we throw up an extension, or we, you know, make your bathroom look nicer. Build a house, like, I'm like, you just couldn't do that with those big players on board. And that's why Thank you very much. chadwicks You're the You're the man, woman, whatever entity you might be, but you're, you're a huge help to us, you know? But that's what that's what it means. It's the madness of that scale where you think how can you do how can you build the house in nine days? Without without a father's house? Like I could build your house the night days? Where do you want to live? It is another day to put but we're gonna do is we're gonna do you know, Ryan's family this family needs.
Aidan Power 16:10
So we're getting a sense of what we can expect from season two, literally, bigger, bigger and better. Get wise, I
can say that. So TV is bigger and better. We're building houses, you know, but like, it's, it's whatever that family needs. Like, this is the thing. There's, there's piles of applications and you look through them. And you just think how do you pick one of these? I thankfully, it's not my job to do that. But But how do you pick How do you pick one person over and I don't know. But it's, it's just there's a lot of people out there who need assistance. And like when we walk away, we spend nine days we have a bit of crack on so we have a bit of a laugh, and we walk away and it's stolen. But you're changing those families lives forever. Like it's massive. Like it's big heart stuff, you know,
Aidan Power 16:57
well buys we really look forward to watching try SOS as soon as it's back on our TV screens. Good luck with the next series other but don't go anywhere because you'll be trying to win a prize for one of our listeners in our pod quiz very soon.
This is the under construction podcast from chadwicks. Ireland's leading builders, merchants and Home Improvement specialists.
Aidan Power 17:23
Well, we're coming to the closing stages of a weekly competition where we want to sort you out with something chadwicks We call it the tool of dreams. And it's that kind of thing that you'll see in the branch that's perhaps a luxury or on your wish list. It's definitely something you do want but do not want to be dropping a bundle of cash on. That's why we call it the tool of dreams. And each week for the crack we set Fred the challenge of coming up with a jingle in the style of someone or something famous. And this week, Fred, I'm sending you the impossible challenge of coming up with a jingle when an artist or a band that has a tool in their title. In their name. Okay,
Fred Cooke 17:55
well, first of all, all I can think of is the saw doctors cloth. Yeah. Okay. That's good. That's very good. You mentioned Can you mention the walls as well? That's fine. I know. That's, that's not necessarily a tos but a part of a house.
Aidan Power 18:12
Then, is there a band called The cars? No. Okay. So doctors is better. Okay. Think international thinking.
Fred Cooke 18:19
Oh, MC Hammer, of course. Very good. Very good. Okay. All the classic I'm on fire. Oh, God. Steve Tyler.
Aidan Power 18:30
Well, that's a trade.
Fred Cooke 18:31
That's a trade. Oh, yeah. Okay. Yeah. Yeah, it's still good. you'll ever hear of the Steve Plummer in the charts. And Steve Tyler. Oh, I tell you what, I've actually got someone who's who's is actually works in the trade. And he's had a number one as well. And here's the two can you get the answer? Yes, you can. Pop the bill. Hey,
Aidan Power 18:54
if that's what you're about to sing, I'm glad this podcast is coming to an end soon. Put on the guitar and surprise us with a song from an artist that has a tool in their name.
Fred Cooke 19:10
Oh, yeah. tuliptree Oh, joke. You want your tuna. Tuna dream. Oh, is your job to the dream.
Aidan Power 19:31
Nicely done. Fred. You surprised us all there. That's better than Jimmy nail it's Peter Gabriel sledge hammer. Nicely done well to win your tool of dreams. We've been asking you to send us a WhatsApp voice note what your joke or funny story. And the jokes we use across the podcast series are in the draw. That's going to happen next week to win the Tula dream. So here is the penultimate contender. This week's joke it's a quick one from George sharps and these two dogs for flying over Belfast. One said, Quack quack. And the other one said, I can't go any quack are fragile the Commedia take the lead on that. What
Fred Cooke 20:11
can I say? It's an absolute classic. And I've said it myself and dairy and got a great clap. But I've heard the joke around. I heard a joke around 20 years ago, on the knob for Northern Ireland. Glendora hadn't crossed the border people from Northern Ireland, people from the side. And that was one of the jokes. And the other joke was why the rec call the rec, because the Rec. There was only Northern Ireland jokes. So I tell you what, it's an absolute classic. Now I'm sorry, I'm sorry, George, only that I heard it 20 years ago. It's like it's gonna, it's like come check out this bond until one plays away. So this is what's the story or something like that. So it's an absolute classic. I'm always happy to bring in jokes.
Aidan Power 20:51
All right, well done, George. It sounds like you robbed them. But hey, Fred's rub a few jokes in his time as well. Right. That's it for our tuna dreams competition. Nine great jokes in the bag.

Aidan Power 21:16
Right let's get into a little trade talk and find out more about the materials being supplied to DIY SOS. And we are with the manager of chadwicks largest branch, which is at Robin Hood road in Dublin. thermochromic Dermot How are you?
Yeah, I'm good guys yourself. I'll keep them up.
Aidan Power 21:30
All great. And it's nice to see because Dermot you were very kind to give me a tour of the Robin Hood road showroom very recently. And now I believe the old Heaton Buckley signage that was there, that's going to be a thing of the past this is,
yeah, we're, I suppose we're all gonna be under the same brand name very soon. So where we're currently writing on our heat book, people are part of chadwicks group. Within the next 12 months, the signs are coming down and the Chadwick sign will be going up. So when it's when it's all done, you will be officially the largest chadwicks branch in in the country. Now I got to see that for myself. And I was blown away by the scale of a Can you tell us just how big it is. And I suppose it depends on the water, they are having some some refer to it as seven acres, some refer to as eight or nine and we're having a particularly good day, but it's pretty much from the ground up to the roof. We've we cover our cover all bases, really for all the tradesmen out there.
Aidan Power 22:24
And even your storage facilities are off the charts.
Yeah, we've I suppose seven, seven warehouses, we've a timber yard, we've civils yard, brick and block yard. And so we literally cover pretty much everything that's that's required the gwynns warehouse ready these days. So
Aidan Power 22:40
now you're one of life's great success stories. You're the general manager of the biggest branch. When did you get your first start with chadwicks? Where was it?
Am I actually started with the paneling Center, which is a I suppose is another brands within the chadwicks group. And I started there when I was 16 years old part time I call myself a summer job in the warehouse. And I've been here ever since. Really. So
Aidan Power 23:03
how long is that without giving away your age? 18 years ago, so now we heard chadwicks we're supplying materials are supplying materials to DIY SOS, what why did you get involved with that show.
And look, it's a very, it's a thing that's close to my own heart, I suppose in one sense. I've watched the show the UK version for a couple years and watch the Irish season there last year, which was was fantastic. So obviously, the the guys in marketing were approached or maybe approached DIY SOS. And we decided as a company to get involved, I suppose on the local branch level, I was privileged to be asked to be the branch to provide for the first house, which was based in Longwood and county Mead. And, look, it's just it's a great thing to see for a family that's in need of their house to be upgraded to get to where they needed to be to have a good quality of life. And I feel privileged to be part of it's kind of
Fred Cooke 23:56
what I've noticed on this podcast, and we're just that everyone's looking for timber. And this seems to be all kinds of delay with timber. So the DIY SOS look for timber,
a few guys. And the dead we're now referring to timber as gold. So it's it's just it's actually it's actually gone that air scarce, I suppose it's a difficult thing to get your hands on in the country at the moment, I suppose as a few issues with filing licenses and just keeping up with the actual demand in the market at the moment. So we did provide timber to the site. We were lucky enough again, as as we discussed a few minutes ago, we have quite large art here. So we were lucky enough to have the goods that we had in stock for them and there was a couple of sizes they needed that we we had to provide longer lens maybe to make it work but we got there with talking to the guys and column we got there in the end and made sure that they had the material needed to make the house work.
Aidan Power 24:49
Was there anything else beyond this gold? That proved tricky that that that was required that maybe was in short supply?
And I suppose there was this Quite a few people involved on on the ground and DIY SOS, you'd have, obviously the contractors on site. And you've also got designers and architects and so on that will be involved as well. So it was probably a few different people looking for different things. And I suppose the most difficult part was if one of the designers maybe wanted a particular type of eye now one thing that came up was radiators, they wanted a specific type of radiator. But with the time constraint that's on the site, we'd have bills that was taking place over nine or 10 days, we unfortunately didn't have enough time to get it down off this floor. So we had to offer them whatever we had on the ground here, we have to pull maybe from different branches within the network as well. So it was a good advantage that we do have quite an extensive network around the country. So I was able to check out our branches and pull it together ad and get out what they what they needed for the site. And that does add to the extraordinary nature of a show like that, when when a build time is nine days where in the real world, it could be nine weeks,
Aidan Power 25:59
what kind of challenges did that pose to your staff.
And I suppose there was because of the fact that it would carry it was carried on over nine days, it involved two weekends and we as a as a branch here, we only open on a Saturday from nine to one so the guys on site were back and forth to me on a on a Sunday, which was a I suppose the interest of the home taking phone calls to young kids wanting either I'm almost chipping in with their with their 50 cents in there as well. But am I suppose look getting the likes of information on a Sunday and then trying to relay it back to my team on a Monday morning. I decided required to go out ASAP. So we, I suppose we've obviously got our existing customer base that we have to provide materials to protect our Monday, we needed to make sure those guys were looked after as well as getting the dry SOS material together. So it was just a matter of just look, we have to hold resources right needed to get it done and make sure that we kept the slide rolled and ready. Before we go. What is the very latest? Because it look this thing is changing week by week, what is the very latest on getting supplies? And
Aidan Power 27:04
do you think the situation will improve after the 19th of July?
And look, I suppose we as a company are trying to pull out resources to get materials in time for our site work to continue. And I know we've multiple teams working with us in our purchasing departments open open head office. They're constantly back and forth to suppliers as we are at a branch level as well to make sure that we have enough material to keep the site's going and keep I suppose renovations and extensions going as well. But it's look it's just the demand went really really intense there for a couple months after lockdown after the treatment lockdown at the start of the year, probably will start fizzling out a little bit now with people booking holidays and I suppose the ability to travel again once that kind of starts kicking in. I'd imagine people start spend the money again on on going away rather than dealing with their back garden or dealing with their house. So we'd imagine that will hopefully settle down a little bit ladders there that just keep getting on with their everyday business radio.
Aidan Power 28:02
I'm just imagining there when you mentioned people going away back in the day they'd come home with you know the 400 cigarettes in their in the suitcase. They'll be coming home with two bits of timber. We hope the situation improves for you and indeed your customers and the challenges at ease up somewhat over the next few months. And thanks for being with us on the podcast.
Yeah, my pleasure. Thanks for having me on guys.
