With this house came a very ugly bar situated in a rumpus room (it was added on at some stage). This reno was done on a budget and while I thought long and hard about getting rid of it all, I just knew it would cost money with the ceiling…

Its been a long year trying to get this house finished and ready to Airbnb. There were some unnecessary and ridiculous issues with council, some asbestos (which is fine but takes time to sort), time delays with tradies and just a lot of hours doing DIY makes things harder than…

Another before and after. 🤩 Here’s the kitchen! It just has a few finishing touches to go. The whole space was ripped apart, walls re-sheeted, a door filled in, bulkhead built and the cabinetry was all DIY from Kaboodle through Bunnings. What a huge job! I couldn’t be happier with…
