Background information

Spent some time off work at home in the week. Its noisy. Hammering, skill-saws and construction noise all day. OK ... houses have to get built. Its the weekend, the suns out - great - its noisy. One keen person is out with their chainsaw or weedeater all day. I appreciate things need to get built; domestic items maintained. But could there be one day-time period when the use of motorised equipment and construction is prohibited.
