Nail Your Renovation Without Getting Screwed

Author: Steve Burke and Suzanne Burke

Publisher: Woodslane Press

If you’ve ever had a home renovation go wrong, this book may well bring a tear to your eye or a wail of ‘If only I’d read this before!’ Nail Your Renovation Without Getting Screwed blends the wisdom of decades of building experience with the perspective of a total novice in spelling out what needs to be addressed before starting a home renovation project. It’s not a how-to guide, or a manual for owner-builders, but a clearly articulated bible for problem-minimising renovation planning and project management. All the major home areas are covered alongside general advice on such matters as green alternatives, keeping sweet with the neighbours, spotting a dodgy tradesperson, where to splurge or save, or what to do if things go wrong. There are also scheduling tables (task, duration and notes) and final inspection tips and checklists, plus a good sprinkling of colour photos.
