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....

"I’m currently in the 5th week of the 'Renovation Toolbox' Coaching Programme with Jen and her wealth of experience is absolutely invaluable. The online modules are easy to follow, incredibly well explained and heaps of fun. There is a tonne of valuable content; from the templates, e-books and having the FB group to post questions and ask for help in. But the game-changer is access to Jen! The coaching calls just take the course to a whole new level - for a reno-rookie like me, having Jen there to help support, give me advice, and tell me about the great products she has worked with, has just been invaluable. Within the first 5 minutes of our first coaching session Jen had taken a look at my proposed floor plan and confirmed that it wouldn’t actually work, 10 minutes later she had whipped up a far more usable floor plan. Really looking to get into the actual reno phase with Jen’s support."

"I am nearly half way through the Renovation Toolbox Programme modules and already its been well worth the investment! As a renovation rookie I was completely naive as to how much things cost, their timelines, and when and how to even get started. Jen's course has helped to give us a much needed reality check so we can approach our renovation with the knowledge and skills to make it work for us and avoid any unwelcome surprises. We feel so supported through the process with having Jen available for questions in ... the Facebook group. The modules are clear and easy to follow and it's great that we can work through it at our own pace."

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.
