I found this blog which is quite good http://www.younghouselove.com/.
I've also been inspired to start a blog to keep us motivated through our first home DIY renovation. We're also using it to keep our friends who are O.S and interstate in the loop about our progress. We hope that we will end up with some handy tips that can be shared all around. here's our blog...only one entry so far www.ourfunkylittleshack.com

We're also blogging our Reno adventures http://whitewallsandsunflowers.wordpress.com. We might be a little crazy, we have three on the go currently which we are doing for investment & planning our next buy to be a long term home purchase.
Look forward to reading all your blogs and posts in the forum, thanks for sharing.

My wife and I are extending and renovating an old post-war home in Sydney. We're managing tradies as owner builders and doing about 60% of the work ourselves. Check out our blog. http://timandkatiesrenovationdiary.blogspot.com.au/

We have a blog dedicated to green and sustainable building that mainly covers renovations and extensions: http://www.lighthome.com.au/new/design-blog
The most recent blog covers a reno and extension in Sydney, where they knocked down an old lean-to that held the kitchen and laundry and created a 45 sq metre extension to house the kitchen/dining/living area: http://www.lighthome.com.au/green-desig ... -in-sydney
Another one we covered recently was a brick home in Moonee Ponds, Victoria that connected the main home to a brick garden shed with an extension to hold the kitchen, as well as added a first storey. Check that out here: http://www.lighthome.com.au/green-desig ... chitecture

We are renovating at the moment and documenting the whole process via my blog and video on my YouTube account. I have a thread going here called "The Small Space Big Build Project", check it out when you get a chance and let me know what you think. Here is the link to some of the videos - http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL ... 07B4O7XYpU

Hi All - well I used to post on here as MissVintage - I was young and idealistic and we were building our "forever house" however 7 years down the track it seems that our "forever house" just wasn't …. and we have a new plan for life including multiple renovations because hey - why not.
Well anyways we have just started a new blog to document our new journey into happiness - and this particular post i have just written outlines just how we experienced our renovation journeys to try and define just how we do what we do!
Anyways, glad to be back on the Homeone bandwagon - welcome all!

Hi all, I'm new to the forum but thought I'd comment on something. I went through some of these blogs and don't really see anything I would subscribe to. I'm looking for a website that provides information to consumers, product reviews and where a handful of authors post.
Is there anything like that around?
When people ask what I do, I say "the very best I can."

I found these girls who buy houses and renovate them over a really short time and sell them for a profit. They just started putting videos up on youtube which is pretty good for ideas on cost saving materials and they seem to have a decent design aesthetic etc. I think they also have an instagram and website too.

Hi all! This seems like as good a place as any to say hello
I've been documenting the updates my partner and I have been doing to our plain jane weatherboard house at saltbushavenue.com. We both not-so-secretly prefer being out in the garden, so we might end up with a flash exterior and an average interior, haha. My blog is a mix of DIY, design and garden if anyone feels like having a look - I'll have to check out the others posted!
Making a modern marvel out of a weatherboard house in Tassie... maybe.

I thought I would add my renovating and design blog http://abeauthome.com.au/ It's about our renovation progress and I blog about interior design and styles I like around the web. Kinda at a standstill on our renovation now, need to sell our investment property to finish plus need more time. My husband (site supervisor) and I are doing all the design and renovation works. But after 6 months of slowly doing piece by piece and living in the reno - it's time to call in the contractors and get it done. Pencilling in for February 2016. I really need to do a blog post about the realities of a live in renovation -with 2 kids under 4 -- um not fun... oh well ya live and learn.
Looking through this thread now to add more blogs to my reading list. yay, talk soon xx

Here it is - http://www.serpentinehouse.com/blog/sophisticated-earthy-serpentine-stone-exterior-coverings/ , a blog on an uncommon building material for exteriors - wall cladding, paving driveways. Hope you find it of your interest.
It describes the stone serpentine for both residential and commercial applications, which is non-porous, acid and abrasion resistant, and can withstand extreme weather conditions.
Would love to hear from you on how do you see this natural stone as a renovation option.
