For people who want to improve their home but don't know how to navigate the world of building, or understand how to get tradesmen to arrive on time and complete jobs on budget - a complete how-to of assessing renovation needs, allocating a budget and a timeframe. Renovation can be awful. It's not like the television shows - it's dirtier, harder and more stressful than any close-up can capture. It doesn't matter if you live in an apartment and need to repaint the lounge room or if you live in a harbourside mansion and need to rebuild the entire house, you can just about guarantee that things you haven't anticipated will go wrong, the budget will blow out and you'll want to shout at someone. But help is at hand. ..Planning Your Perfect Home Renovation is your blueprint to a stress-free, well-planned and well-budgeted renovation that improves the value of your home. It helps you to plan a renovation to suit your available time, experience and money. It will also:..* Introduce you to the three R's: repairs, refurbishment and rebuilding..* Provide examples of room-by-room mission statements for easy planning..* Show you how to work out cost estimates and schedules..* Help you to build good relationships with builders and tradespeople..* Show you what happened in three real renovations: in a unit, a brick-veneer house and a semi..* Give you lots of money-saving and design tips..* Include helpful and practical diagrams, floor plans and tables ..Planning Your Perfect Home Renovation is a complete how-to of assessing all your renovation needs. If you're thinking about improving your home (and want to survive the experience), you need this book...In the middle of her second renovation, Alex May is the perfect person to write this book. She is a freelance writer who specialises in property and design. She writes property and design stories for The Sydney Morning Herald's Domain section and also has a column in The Sun Herald called Worth a Look.

The Beginner Renovator: A Guide to the Repair and Alteration of Houses in Australia, Edward Mundie

Edward Mundie Australia Hyland House 1987 0947062114 / 9780947062118 Softcover New Book 24.0 x 18.4 x 1.9 cm 
Thinking of Renovating? Could we really do it ourselves? Is there a place where we can find out about the tools we'll need and how to use them? Something that tells us what to do and where we might go wrong? There must be tricks in buying - places to go for things and ways to save? Could we get some sort of a guide to costs for the various building items? Suppose we want to buy a house to do up, wouldn't we need a good long list of the good things and the bad things to look out for? And wouldn't it be a help to know the cost and what work has to be done in all the fixing up? And if in the end we decide to get someone to do the work for us, wouldn't nit be a good idea to know what that person is meant to be doing? All this, and much more, can be found in The Beginner Renovator! It starts with the basics - the drains and the foundations - going on to windows and doors (no more squeaks), plastering and painting and for the more adventurous, building an inner wall or an extension. Separate chapters are devoted to the kitchen and bathroom. 244 pages.
