Hi, I'm Jen Jones
I'm a spreadsheet and gantt chart geek. I love to design kitchens and bathrooms. I love to host dinner parties. I enjoy yoga, beach time with my husband and daughter, and brunch with my girlfriends. I also love my job and if any of these points below resonate with you, then I’m here to help:
- you’re desperate to get your renovation underway, but feeling overwhelmed by all the decisions you need to make
- you’re hoping to build new but you find the thought of a blank canvas extremely daunting
- you know exactly what you’d like your home to look and feel like, but have no idea how to achieve it
- you’re concerned about the overall cost and unsure how to budget for what you want
- you fancy yourself as a DIYer but don’t know where to start
- you’re ready to get underway but don’t really have the time nor energy to manage the process yourself
So what makes me your best home reno' weapon? Over the past 10 years, I’ve worked with established New Zealand commercial businesses including NorthWest Shopping Centre, Auckland Airport, BNZ, BP, Lumino, Flight Centre and more, managing their construction projects, as well as undertaking residential projects of my own.
I set up Nine Yards Consulting to allow me to bring that experience and expertise to your residential project. Embarking on a home renovation, extension or new build project is an exciting time, but it can be stressful. Commercial projects can be even more so. I am well equipped with the know-how, competence and confidence to manage the process, keep your project running smoothly, and share the journey with you from start to finish,
My unique combination of interior design, project and cost management experience allows me to take a holistic approach to your project. I am equipped to become your single point of contact for the whole nine yards.
Taking a hands-on, detailed approach, I can scale up or down at any time, to suit any sized project. From interior design, renovation and extension to house relocation, subdivision and ground-up development, I add value by maximising efficiency and controlling the project timeline whilst staying mindful of the overall budget.
But don’t take my word for it! Here are what some of my clients have said about me:
Jess said: "Jen is genuinely my secret reno’ weapon. She knows how to get shit done – for lack of a better word. Jen confidently guided me through planning, budgeting, sourcing and helped me stay on track in every sense of the word. She is worth her weight in gold and will be able to make your life so much easier."
Billie said: "We were unsure where to start in the purchasing / renovations process and Jen provided honest and helpful advice on the appropriate strategy for us. Whether you need guidance on an entire project or simply on a specific aspect, Jen is a really good person to speak to. We found her friendly, knowledgeable, efficient and very responsive (which seems to be a rarity in the building / design industry from our experiences). We would not hesitate to use Jen again in the future."
Anita said: "Nine Yards Consulting have been amazing. Whilst I knew the look I wanted for my home, I was overwhelmed with the selection and suppliers available and just didn’t know where to start. Jen is highly skilled at translating a desired look into the necessary steps required for a particular home and is honest, trustworthy and upfront about costs. She also has great style which helps a lot too.".
