So, you’ve finally got the money together to start renovating your home, but with that comes decisions!
What work to prioritise, how to get the biggest bang for your buck, where to find reliable builders, painters, plumbers, electricians that’ll do the job right first time, how to project manage it in the right order…
What you really want is for the renovation to run smoothly and be stress-free. Without any costly hiccups or mistakes. To know you’re spending your money wisely, whilst creating a home you really love.
You’re definitely not alone if you feel nervous about how to connect all the dots in your renovation project.
It’s totally normal and I’m here to help you.
It’s why I started this business… to bring the process and control from my commercial build experience to residential projects, so you don’t end up being the topic of renovation horror stories at the next neighbourhood BBQ!
So how can I help? Here's the low down...
I’m pulling together a group of homeowners and showing them exactly how to achieve their dream home vision on time, within budget, and without all the unnecessary stress that usually comes with home renovations.
In the words of my former client Jess Britten of @hallweneed, I’ll be your “secret reno weapon”.
All within my home renovation coaching programme, aptly called the ‘Renovation Toolbox’ because there are multiple tools to help you get the job done #punny
What will you get?
I'm going to guide you to complete everything from the planning, designing and specifying of your home, right through to the scoping, pricing and tendering so you can achieve your dream home goals without all the unnecessary stress of not knowing where to start, what things will cost, or how long it will take. Then I’m going to give you the ‘tools’ to actually run your entire renovation project on site, beginning to end, as easily and seamlessly as possible.
This is perfect for anyone wanting to renovate their home, regardless of budget, scope and how much you have or haven’t achieved already. Most home renovations go waaaayy over budget, over time, and well over the homeowner’s stress threshold.
With my help, you’ll be the exception.
Meet your host
Hi, I’m Jen Jones, the owner and founder of Nine Yards Consulting. I help rookie renovators transform their homes without unnecessary stress, timeline overruns and budget blowouts.
Over the past 10 years, I’ve worked with established New Zealand commercial businesses such as 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.
This combination of fit out, project and cost management experience allows me to take a holistic approach to any renovation or extension project. I set up Nine Yards Consulting in 2019 to offer this experience and expertise as a project consultant to the residential sector.
That’s enough from me!
Here's what my students have to say....
This programme will start by covering all the components of my Renovation Roadmap Framework
Prepare a floorpan
Whether it is hand drawn, digitally generated or outsourced, you need a floor plan to work from for every part of the process. Visualisation, planning, scoping, briefing, budgeting and construction
Identify the scope
Get crystal clear on what your scope actually is – room by room, package by package, floor to ceiling and everything in between
Set the brief
How can you engage with consultants or contractors without being able to communicate a clear and concise brief? This can only be done by knowing the elaborate detail of your scope
Test the budget
Align your budget with your dream home goals – what will it actually cost, and is there enough of the green stuff to achieve your desired outcome, or do you need to make compromises? If you don't ask yourself this now, it'll come back to bite you later as cost overruns
Determine your timeline
Understanding your own time constraints, and where you can and cannot control the narrative – realistic timeframes and knowledge of the 'right' sequence of things to keep the project running seamlessly
Once these keys to renovation success have been established, I’ll guide you in setting your renovation strategy for the whole nine yards. At the end of our time together, you’ll be sitting in your dream home marveling at what’s been achieved.
