We've finished our first makeover

Housing Market Written by John Bolton, Aug 27 2011

We did this makeover with a $70,000 budget, which was a mixture of our funding and some client funds. To put a bit of perspective around this renovation this is what we did: new kitchen, new bathroom, rewired, regibbed and plumbed the entire house, including new outdoor hotwater cylinder and switchboard, replaced all doors, removed brick fireplace, replaced or repaired windows, polished floors, put insulation in the roof, walls and floor, and fenced. Clients are involved in the process and they designed their kitchen, which we think looks stunning.

Brand new kitchen

This was basically a derelict house before we started. The bathroom was completely trashed.

With the lounge we even wired it for the TV and sound. (Our sparky wasn't impressed!)

The outside doesn't look that different, just tidier with some fresh paint, cleared rubbish, and a new fence.
