Renovation + Home Improvement
Mar 19, 2021 7:06 pm
I'm looking to do some renovations to my house. It has been rented out for a number of years, but now I'm looking to move back in and spruce it up a bit.
* New kitchen
* Rip out carpet and either restore original floor boards or install floating floor boards
* Replace wooden windows with modern double glazed wooden windows
* Paint interior
* I'm sure there's lots of minor repairs that will be required as well.
While the house isn't heritage listed, it IS a contributory item in a heritage conservation area meaning the outside look generally needs to be preserved.
Would you recommend that I engage a builder to handle all of this or treat them as separate jobs and organise my own trades to do each item?

Thank you. I don't have access to that Standard but I will try a couple of avenues that should.
