Kickstart, plan and price your home renovation in 6 weeks.
Module One: Kickstart your Renovation:
The hardest part is getting started. No matter your level of experience or stage of the project, I’ll help you to bring it back to basics to make sure the fundamentals are in place to ensure a successful renovation, as well as an early budget ballpark check before we get too carried away.
Module Two: Set the Programme
Knowing the order of things in my renovation roadmap, and how long each phase of the project will take, will help you to set the milestones for delivery on your renovation journey. You’re in charge of the timeline, but I’ll help you set a realistic one.
Module Three: Brief your Team
A home renovation is a team of many, not a team of one. Identifying who to add to your team and when is critical to delivery success. Do you need an architect? A draftsman? An engineer? What type of engineer? I’ll help you to answer these questions and bring them in.
Module Four: Drawings & Documentation
Renovating your home without some kind of documentation is setting yourself up for failure (and budget blowouts!). Even the most rookie of renovators can whip up a floor plan. How do I know? Because I’m going to break it down into super digestible steps for you. Fixtures, fittings, finishes and equipment can both make or break your budget and timeline. Finding the right balance between interior fitout aesthetic / quality and bottom line is a fine art that I’ll teach you how to nail.
Module Five: Building your Budget
When your drawings and FFF&E is en route to completion, you can start to build your budget, room by room, line by line. This is a big task, but it’ll be easier for you than anyone else. Why? Because you’ve already done most of the work! When you’re confident you can afford what you’ve asked for, I’ll show you how to prepare a comprehensive scope document for your builder and issue it for preliminary pricing… I’ll even show you what to look out for in quotes before you sign your life (and your home!) away.
Module Six: Underway on Site
There’s a reason planning takes place over five steps and construction is only one! Your hard work has paid off, and now you just need to keep the momentum going. There will be unexpected things that come up – that’s the nature of any renovation – but thanks to your prior planning nothing is insurmountable and if it feels like it is, then don’t worry – I’m there to support you.
