How Did My $5000 Budget Reno Go???

I’ve been asked a couple of times, how did my $5000 reno go?

Well let’s just say we ended up spending about $8500

instead of $5000…but you know what?  I don’t mind…why?

Because I was originally planning to spend $10,000 (and didn’t

tell you , yes very cheeky) and wanted to see what would happen

by cutting the budget in half!!!

It made me think alot smarter and got the team looking at ways

to make things happen without breaking the bank!!!

Here’s how the rough figures turned out:

Floor sanding $2700

Painting / Kitchen / Vanity $3700

Plumber $550

Pantry / Linen Cupboard $100

Plus Aircon / Dishwasher / Washing Machine $1500

And some before and after pix:

The other good news is that we got it rented 3/4 way

through the renovation (yes unfinished) and they move in next week.

To be honest 90% of my energy was spent prior to July 1, to maximise

the FR-EE BLOCK OF LAND AT THE BACK…as on July 1

some big changes came into effect with the Brisbane

City Council town plan, and we ended up applying for not 2, but 3 new

dwellings in the back yard, all low set too…

Big thanks to my team of architects, engineers and town planners

who worked under tough conditions to meet the deadline, and

I expect the approval will come through October / November this

year.

Til the next Property episode,

Regards
