Author(s): Werine Erasmus

Gardening and DIY

A book full of tick-box-style checklists and valuable tips to guide keen renovators on how to ensure a cost-effective and streamlined renovation project. Through trial and error, Werine has cosmetically renovated over 20 homes. In the early days she made many mistakes which cost time and money. As a result, she developed detailed checklists to streamline her renovation projects and keep them profitable. Her journey has inspired her to share what she has learned. The checklists or "renovation recipes" as she calls them, were designed to help others avoid all the rookie mistakes. She wants keen renovators to learn about the best order in which to renovate to make their renovation process easier and more cost-effective. She believes her checklists take care of most of the planning so that she can focus on taking action. Her tick-box style of approach is practical, to the point and fast becoming the go-to method for cosmetic renovators. Whether you are renovating a whole house or just a room, the helpful checklists will keep your project on track. Werine purchased her first property in 2002, but the excitement of being a homeowner was overshadowed by her fear of being tied to mortgage repayments for 30 years. She wanted to turn three dreams into reality including 1) being mortgage-free as soon as possible, 2) make extra money to achieve this and 3) a healthy work/life balance. She embarked on a renovation journey that ultimately rewarded her with her dream lifestyle.Table of Contents1. Research 2. Budget, strategy & buy 3. Plan 4. Quotes & shopping 5. Demolition 6.
