HOT D.I.Y. RENOS

From: Simon and Julie M


Hi all

Good news! Our Do-it-yourself renovations have proved so profitable that we are now out of the rat race.

For those who don't like to get their hands dirty I would like to say thank you for leaving more opportunity for us.

There is an old saying "you get good at whatever you practice".

Best regards
Julie and Simon

And as Geoff Doidge and Paul Eslick (QLD renovators bigtime) say:
WHERE THERE'S YUCKS THERE'S BUCKS!

Hi Jacque

I was going to reply to Colin's post ("Renos - not so hot as you think!") but decided I'd rather reply to this one (the glass is half full, as Michael says).

I guess you guys feel pretty cool being out of the rat race now.

Cooler than sitting in AC, I bet.

Well done and great to hear an inspiring story.

Simon

I love your cold beer story from previous post. I'll bet your garden will be beautiful. There's more to renovating than just dollars.
