•Are you contemplating a renovation?
•Do you think you know all about renovating houses because you happen to live in one?
•Have you looked at other people's renovation disasters and said 'That will never happen to me'?
If you have answered 'yes' to any of the above, then this is the book for you. Amanda Falconer, building industry professional and home renovation survivor, shows Australian home-owners how to:
•Find the right architect
•Achieve good design
•Negotiate council approvals
•Deal with builders
•Avoid cost blow-outs and delays
Written with humour and peppered with stories of renovation successes, near-misses and complete disasters, this is an easy-to-use guide to the most expensive activity you're ever likely to undertake, apart from buying the actual house.
