Quick lick of paint …errr

9 May

Have been asked a few times to post some pictures of the renovation I just completed.

This 1 bedroom unit in Auckland had seen better days

First trip to the ‘Tip’ my contribution to landfill:

Pulled a few of the top planks off to replace them and found the deck was a write off:

The more I got in to it the worse it got, sections of flooring in the kitchen, lounge and bathroom had gone soft and needed to be cut out & replaced:

I spent around 3-4 months of evenings and weekends (calling on plenty of help from friends and family) pulling the place to bits and repairing/replacing pretty much everything.

Child labour kept the costs low:

Happy with the results, but glad its over…

I have serious doubts about my new tenant, better not trash it, hi Craig!
