Learn the Lingo ebook

All the language you need to engage with your tradies and suppliers.

If you're starting a renovation or new build project, you might feel a bit overwhelmed by all the industry language thrown around by your architect and builder. Don't worry! I've got you covered,

I've done the hard work for you and compiled a whopping 200+ definitions so you can move through your project with confidence and clarity. The words or phrases in this ebook are ones you might come across during your project, wither in conversation or in emails, pricing or documentation / drawings.

Some words and phrases have multiple meanings and just to keep you on your toes, some meanings have multiple names too. I've conveniently listed them in alphabetical order for you, and in my own words so that they're as simple and easy to understand as possible.

Project Scoping Checklist

Get a crystal clear scope to show your tradesmen.

My project scoping checklist contains a list of all of the rooms in your home and everything to assess within those rooms to help build your project scope. Literally everything from exterior cladding and roofing to skirtings and scotia gets checked off.

When completing the assessment, the checklist offers repair, replace or refurbish options and a place to add more specific comments. Once the checklist is complete, you can move onto the Scoping Lists which is the next FREE download in this list - scroll down to grab that one too!

Project Scoping Lists

Identify what's most important in your project, to avoid disappointment later.

Once you have completed my project scoping checklist (grab the FREE download above) take stock of what came up and use my project scoping lists to summarise they key items for your project.

There are three lists included, the need-to-dos, the non-negotiables and the nice-to-haves.

Need-to-dos are things like replacing the roof or rewiring your home, whereas the non-negotiables are those must-have items that you or your partner aren't prepared to compromise on. Getting clear on those upfront (and revisiting often!) will make sure you're both on the same page with what's important. It could be as simple as 'brass tapware and hardware' or as big as a scullery, walk-in-wardrobe or ensuite. You decide!

The nice-to-haves are things you both agree would be bonuses, but only if budget allows - like a double sided gas fireplace, or floor-to-ceiling tiling to the bathrooms.
