Renovate or Detonate!!!



How embarrassing! Why would you buy that!
 Most people would buy a nice car, a new flat- screen T.V or go on a lovely holiday to some sun-drenched locale.

 
 
The cream house is our home currently undergoing renovations ( 13 years and still going).
So why did we buy the dump nextdoor?
Mmm. maybe lack of sleep had something to do with it. As you can see, a poor quality rental property = poor quality tenants.

Imagine coming home and finding the neighbours kids playing in your sandpit or helping themselves to food from your downstairs fridge while you were home or boys climbing on the roof of the house nextdoor to peep through your bathroom window. Or it might have been those tenants that moved in quietly only to set up a drum kit outside our bedroom!

So we have taken up the challenge, renovating two antique houses at the same time, how hard can it be? Let the renovations begin.
