As someone who is currently planning renos, I know firsthand that everything costs more than you think it will, especially when you get trades involved and have to factor in labour. With house prices as they are, by the time you’ve struggled to buy your home, there’s often not much left over to get it looking how you want it. This is such an amazing opportunity for someone and I can’t wait to see what the winner does with the money. We’ll be sharing the before and after with you here too!
For your chance to win, we’re simply asking you to share what you’d do with the money and why you deserve to win, and send us a photo of the space you’re looking to make better.
The winner will also get a Skype call with me and our resident renovation expert, the extremely talented and experienced Naomi Findlay, with more than 100 renos to her name. We can’t wait to bounce ideas around with you!
Please ensure you read the terms and conditions carefully. Entries close Sunday 30 July 2017 at 11.59pm AEST.
Can’t wait to see if you win?
