How to keep your cool when renovating
Be sure to cost everything before you start and then add 10% to your total. Itís an unfortunate fact of renovation life that costs creep up, and this way youíll avoid nasty surprises.

Put enough money aside to eat out regularly while your house is in chaos (particularly important when the kitchen is being renovated).
Alternatively, invite friends for dinner prior to work starting so they can return the favor during renovation!

When choosing an architect, draughtsman or tradesman, look at a few, ask for references and check out their work. Better still, have one recommended by someone you know. Carters recommends you use contractors who are members of the Registered Master Builders Federation, Master Plumbers or Painting Contractors Association.

Keep a diary of events/progress and discussion with tradesmen and suppliers.

Track the work from start to finish with photographs. It will remind you how bad things used to be and cheer you up if they donít look so good in the middle of the work!
