Whether you’re planning a renovation or mid-way through managing one, there’s inevitably a point where you’ll think HELP!
When you’re stuck in analysis paralysis, trying to make the RIGHT decision, but your heart and head are pulling in two different directions. Searching through your overflowing Pinterest boards and stack of home and garden magazines, are only making you feel more confused about what to do. Googling your situation doesn’t bring you any relief. Nor does talking it out with your partner or friends.
What you need is a renovation expert in your pocket. Someone who can look at your problem or question from an objective perspective and give you advice based on actual experience and knowledge. The good news is - that’s me! That's why I set up my VIP Group.
It removes the barriers to DIY by providing you with access to a qualified consultant, minus the high ticket price. It's a forum to ask me as many questions as you need whilst working through your project, and to benefit from answers to other peoples’ questions too. Regardless of whether your project involves minor or major changes to your home, or even if it's a new build, there are always times when you’ll need an experienced sounding board.
If you need more convincing, read on.
A consultant in your pocket for a fraction of the price
Consider my VIP Group as access to the inside of my brain - I have 10+ years experience running residential and commercial projects up to $200m in value, and in my VIP Group I'm an open book - all of tools and knowledge I use when running client projects effectively and efficiently is accessible to you! All you have to do is ask a question and I'll fire back a response.
Let's be realistic, it's unlikely you can achieve your entire wishlist with your project budget. I've run residential projects from $100k - $2m, but you don't have to spend that much to get the home of your dreams. If you need some cost-saving ideas or advice on where it's worth spending the money, and where you might consider compromising, then I'm your gal.
Easy to understand
Feeling overwhelmed by all the technical jargon your architect, engineer and builder are using? Keep up with the clear explanations and layman's terms used throughout my ebooks - they're all written in my own words accompanying images and sketches when needed; and if there is anything you don't understand then rest assured I also have a FREE 'Learn the Lingo' ebook containing a 235+ word glossary to assist..
Detailed advice, tips and tricks
No matter the scale of your project, I break down the scope into simple bite size pieces to keep you in check along the way, and more importantly, before you get too far along and make expensive mistakes. Since each ebook covers a specific room or rooms in your home, the content is thorough, detailed and extremely relevant.

What you can expect to get
INTERIOR DESIGN IDEAS
If you need ideas for fixtures, finishes, and furnishings then post a question. Here I helped Cindy come up with a curtain solution for her floor to ceiling raked windows.
If you have a DIY task in mind, but you’re not sure how to approach it, I can assist. In this example Kate asked me how to revitalise her outdoor patio, so I recommended an approach and the appropriate products for execution.
concept floor plans
If you’re looking to optimise the layout of your home, then I can whip up a quick floor plan for you illustrating my thoughts and why, taking into consideration any constraints you may have.
tips and tricks
Tips, tricks and all of the hacks! If I can't give you the answer, I will know how to help you find it. Some of them will be result in #mindblown moments!
What others have said
So unique that a group like this exists with unlimited access to consultancy advice such as what white to paint your walls to full renovation advice without feeling silly for asking. Jen even drew up plans for our bungalow renovation with her recommended layout which was really insightful and gave us a whole different perspective that we didn’t consider before.
Highly recommend joining for peace of mind and a second opinion on even the smallest of projects
Helpful advice and Jen is very thorough with realistic and practical advice for your exact needs. Looking forward to learning more through this group.
I have really appreciated the prompt and generous advice. Sometimes all you need is a second opinion!
Can’t recommend this group more! I joined whilst we were house hunting and it was great to get ideas of how we could renovate the different houses we were looking at. We’ve since bought and have had some awesome advice on how we can renovate our kitchen and also maximise the space we have currently. To say I’m clueless about this stuff is an understatement so it’s great to have an expert to hand. Jen is incredibly active and responsive on the page. And it’s great seeing others ask questions as it’s given us even more inspiration!

VIP Group Entry &
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.
I'm a spreadsheet and gantt chart geek. I love to design kitchens and bathrooms. I love to host dinner parties. I enjoy yoga, beach time with my husband and daughter, and brunch with my girlfriends. I also love my job and then I’m here to help!
So what makes me your best home reno' weapon? Over the past 10 years, I’ve worked with established New Zealand commercial businesses including 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.
