So this happened today! Thanks @scarlettestacy for celebrating this with us - Even if you aren’t happy about it. #nextsteps #carmel #friendsforever #buildingisfun

LOCK-UP BUILDING | If you feel like the whole construction side of building is a little daunting, you have the option of hiring a registered builder to build your home to lock-up stage (or even plaster). Then you take over and co-ordinate the fit-out yourself.
~
Although you’ll be paying the builder’s margin for their build to lock-up - you’ll be be covered for the full six years builder’s warranty. And that’s a bonus without doubt.
~
But don’t despair as you can still save so much on the remainder of the fit-out. You can do all your research by checking out all available auctions and sales for fittings, kitchens, bathrooms, floor and window coverings, robes and custom built-in furniture (Cbus, security etc).
~
Perhaps you feel more comfortable hiring the registered builder for your first project as you get a feel for the building industry. Maybe you just do not have the time or the inclination to do the structural build but can co-ordinate the fit-out between weeknights and weekends.
~
Building your own home is such an exhilarating experience. Therefore, you need to ask yourself “Do I have the skills to project-manage a new build or renovation OR should I hire a builder to get it to lock-up?”. Fx

TAKE-OFF METHODS | So how do you know how many bricks, lengths of timber or boxes of tiles to order? Using a take-off method helps you determine the quantities for your project and you do this by referencing your architectural drawings.
~
When you’re building, although you’ll be getting quotes from the concreter, plumber and carpenter - you’ll still be ordering supplies such as bricks, sand, timber, tiles, insulation etc.
~
It’s not always feasible to tell the plumber that you’ll order all the supplies and that you only want to pay for his labour. Which would give you a lot of control - but a plumber will get supplies at a discount and you can’t possibly buy every little thing they need (it just doesn’t work that way). But of course, you would supply to the plumber things like your hot water system, taps, toilets - those types of things.
~
A good reason for understanding different take-off methods is to make sure tradies aren’t taking you for a ride. If you’ve worked out that there are 100 sqm of tiling and your tiler tells you his rate is $50 sqm and gives you an invoice for $10,000 - you will immediately know that he’s charged you whatever the hell he wants because he thinks you don’t understand.
~
And maybe before this, you didn’t understand. But now you do. Using basic maths, you really need to know linear, area, volume and mass take-off methods. And no, I’m not a mathematician. Just an everyday-maths-kind-of-girl. Fx

Sweaty hot mess after my HIIT session.. after legs 😳😅
.
I’m in such a good place right now I feel like with my body image, cravings, gym strength, etc.
🤙🏽 My current goal is to create a healthy relationship with food: eat when I’m hungry, have lenient macros, stop when I’m full, and eat a variety of foods. If it looks amazing, I’m gonna try it (reference the glorious deep dish pizza my mom brought home #wow), but I also know it doesn’t mean that I need to finish it!
Tell me/comment what your current #goals are! I wanna hear all the positive mindset around here!

When a plain desk just one do you get creative.  A few hundred-year-old sewing machine bases and a DIY chunky wooden table top make a perfect rustic industrial desk.
That's my current small home office, a tiny corner sliced away from the living room floor plan.  It's not much, but it's a workspace. 🌼

Active recovery day project - building a new office chair! Carrying the box up the stairs was a workout!

2017 | This was another client project - one of my favourites, a French Provincial home.
~
This couple are in their mid-30s with a munchkin under the age of three. This was an owner-builder project - under my coaching!! They did such an amazing job - eye for detail, thoroughly organised and they definitely enjoyed the experience.
~
It’s always extremely hard, if you’ve never built before, to not get emotionally attached to a home. What generally happens is you end up choosing all the ‘more expensive’ items like tiles, door handles, appliances - kind of like everything tbh. I think this couple did very well to stick to their plan and be disciplined in their execution.

When you stick to a plan and process and do what others have already proven works - you’re bound to be successful in your endeavour. Like anything in life, research is key before you jump into anything. I think this couple did very well! Fx

2014 | This project was on a small block in comparison to my other projects - but oh such a beautiful home.
~
This land was purchased with permits approved as well as engineering drawings. Which meant that we were able to get straight into building it without having to waste a year or more in obtaining approved permits.
~
So this is a double-storey home plus garage. A 23 sq home comprising 3 bedrooms, formal lounge, study (downstairs & upstairs), kitchen, dining, plus two bathrooms. It is a well designed home, lots of natural light and all the mod cons - expensive finishes.

I want you to know that there is money to be made in development even if you buy a property with approved permits to build a home. As you can see above. Your research is to work backwards. Work out what the end product is worth if you sold it, get a builder to give you a ballpark as to how much it would cost to build, holding/selling costs - and see what’s in it. If you’re happy with the figure - then you need to fine-tune your figures and make sure they’re correct. Fx

Almost time to stain! It’s been a great day for working in the wood shop. Not like there’s ever a bad day for making stuff 😜. Time to go in and chill with the family before the work week starts again. #xstyletable #xstyleentrywaytable #entrywaytable #farmhousestyle #wood #carpentry #carpenterslife #wardenwoodworking #buildingisfun #gettingitdone #table #woodshop #woodcraft #followformore #shoplife
