The Renovation Trio

(3 customer reviews)

$3,997.00

The trifecta! For full project success, engage me for either a mastermind, drawing review or specifying consultation. Once you’re ready to move forward, I will prepare your project budget for you and write a comprehensive scope document and include some tips on how to get your project prices by tradies. Details of each service below.

Renovation Mastermind Consultation

Kick off your renovation with a bang by making sure your project is clearly mapped out with a smart plan of action.

Have you recently purchased a do-up or been living in one for a while? Are you finally ready to renovate, but have no idea where to start? Then let me take a look. I’ll review the property’s photos, floor plan and general site constraints against your project brief and let you know what your options are. This could be how best to utilise the floor space, quick wins for improving the street appeal, ways to revitalise the bathroom and kitchen on a budget, right through to major renovations and extensions. Get me involved as part of your due diligence prior to committing the elbow grease and hard-earned cash.

This is a virtual offering and as such, relies on you being able to provide photos and a floor plan. A briefing questionnaire may be issued to assist with providing feedback. Site visits are an additional $247 within the Auckland Metro / Fringe areas.

OR

Drawing Review & Feedback Consultation

Take your project to the next stage with confidence, knowing your drawings have received independent review.

Are you underway with your design documentation but not sure if you’re going in the right direction? Allow me to review your drawings independently. Anything from concept phase through to consent documentation, or even a construction set. The earlier I can review the better, in terms of capturing changes affordably (before construction starts is great, before Building Consent is optimum!). In lieu of any specific areas of concern, I will complete a page by page review of the project and provide feedback on drawing quality, missing details, buildability, cost-saving considerations, orientation and window placement, overall internal layout and more. If there’s something bugging you, then I’ll dive into that too so you can rest easy that your design is on the right path.

This is a virtual offering and as such, relies on you being able to an existing and proposed floorplan within, ideally, a complete set of drawings for review. Site visits are an additional $247 within the Auckland Metro / Fringe areas if requested, but should not be necessary if a full drawing set is available.

OR

Specifying & Procurement Consultation

Get crystal clear on your scope and budget by ensuring your FFF&E is specified.

The floorplan is only one small part of the ‘design’ scope for a home renovation project, there are also all of the fixtures, fittings, finishes and equipment to specify. Think curtains, blinds, wall colours, tapware, hardware, floor and joinery finishes and so on. Often budget blowouts don’t happen because things go wrong, then happen because not all of the scope was specified and included. With this specifying and procurement service I will provide a checklist of everything you’ll need to specify for your unique home renovation, so that you don’t miss anything when making your tapware and tile selections, along with everything else. I’ll even share some tips on suppliers (including showrooms!) that will be a good fit for your desired aesthetic, if you share some images for inspiration.

This is a virtual offering and as such, relies on you being able to send an existing and proposed floorplan within, ideally, a complete set of drawings for review. Site visits are an additional $247 within the Auckland Metro / Fringe areas if requested, but should not be necessary if a full drawing set is available.

AND

Renovation Budget

If you’ve never renovated before and have no idea what to expect in terms of budget, I can help by creating a bespoke budget plan to set you up for success.

Renovating and / or extending your home is a big deal and it can feel overwhelming, especially when you think of all your hard-earned cash that needs to be invested to get that dream home result. If you’re not sure how much things cost or have a strict budget and not sure what it will cover, then I can help.

To begin with, I’ll jump on a call with you to discuss the current condition and desired result so I can get a feel for what the Council requirements might be – this is important as Building Consent, Architect / Drafting and Engineering fees can quickly eat up a big chunk of your budget if the scope can’t be completed without going through Council.

Next, I will prepare a Project Budget outlining all the professional fees and compliance costs you might need to cover, and what that leaves behind for the actual renovation. I’m more than happy to then either divi up the remaining budget to show how far you might get with it (i.e. kitchen, bathroom, painting, flooring etc) and / or provide some cost-saving options to help avoid Council fees and / or engineering (by modifying the scope of the project).

This is a virtual offering and as such, relies on a thorough briefing of your renovation goals and current state being given, along with any floorplans (from the realtor or hand sketched) and photos of the property being provided.  Site visits are an additional $247 within the Auckland Metro / Fringe areas.

AND

Renovation Scope

Make sure the quotes you get are accurate and stay on budget with a crystal clear scope to show your tradesmen.

So you’ve been through a bit of a process with an architect or draftsman, or maybe you’ve hand-sketched a proposed floor plan, and now you need to get some pricing from local tradies to see if you can afford the dream home in your mind…. You might be thinking you can just get a builder through your home, chat about the scope, and they will fire through an estimate… you probably can BUT it’s likely to be a way off what the project will actually cost.

Allow me to step in! I’ll jump on a call with you and chat about your goals, things to keep, things to change, what sort of finishes and general design you have in mind, and then I’ll take all of that information and write a comprehensive trade-by-trade scope document (i.e. building, electrical, plumbing, painting) for you to share with 2-3 local builders, along with an annotated floorplan for ease of comprehension.

Once the floor plan and scope document are drafted, I’ll explain both to you and make any amendments as required, before leaving them in your now capable hands for obtaining pricing. I’ll even give you some tips of what to look out for when the estimates come back, and of course I am happy to help you review the estimates if you need assistance with that too (for a small extra cost).

This is a virtual offering and as such, relies on a thorough briefing of your renovation goals and current state being given, along with any floorplans (from the realtor or hand sketched) and photos of the property being provided.  Site visits are an additional $247 within the Auckland Metro / Fringe areas.

  1. Tracy Shahar-Yu

    I first contacted Jen because we had to idea where to begin In terms of improving our home. From consultation and quoting to the finished work, she was thorough, professional and efficient. We were impressed with her knowledge and advice. The service Jen provided was exactly what we were after.

  2. Isobel Ashman

    I reached out to Jen once we’d purchased our ‘do-up’ to help us manage the renovations. We actually ended up extending our work with her beyond this Trio pack because her knowledge, help and guidance was just so incredibly invaluable. The assistance and support she offers us through out our continuing renovations has not only helped us keep to on-top of timeframes, but has definitely saved us HEAPS of money. Jen is the best secret weapon for anyone doing up their home!

  3. Simon Oddie

    We reached out to Jen to help us kickstart our apartment reno, and we’re so glad we did! The Renovation Trio gave us exactly what we needed to help us confirm our vision and scope up and price our renovation plan. This service saved us so much time, dollars and stress, especially as we were juggling the renovation with full times jobs and a newborn! We even extended Jen’s scope to help us get through to contract award. Thanks for all your help!!
