The best thing we did when renovating our whole house, was to engage a builder we both felt very comfortable with. He was easy to have around... and he was around just about every day for many months, doing a lot of the work himself. We lost our privacy and the whole experience could have been very stressful. However the builder shared our sense of humour and we all managed to have a lot of laughs along the way. If you happen to live in Far North Queensland, it's Shane Watson Building, Gordonvale.

Sad to say, my relationship ended because of the stress of the renovation and all that went wrong with the builder!

"I love the help and effort she gives, but her painting is so messy, it creates more work for me having to clean or touch up behind her. That's my only complaint so far."

That’s me
