Homes On Show - Save My Bathroom

Behind every job there is a story. This one starts with a homeowner, and a vision to renovate her bathroom from an outdated 1970’s relic to a modern, clean, and functional bathroom. The Dilemma The story starts with Joanne and her first tradie, a referral from a friend. The tradie seemed great. The homeowner and the tradie agreed that Joanne would buy everything that was needed for the bathroom, and the tradie gave her a cost to install and renovate to her plan. Fast forward three months and the tradie was nowhere to be seen and uncontactable. With the goods for her bathroom waiting in Mitre 10 and a loan taken out for the project, Joanne was desperate to get the job underway. The Solution “I spoke to someone at work, saying I didn’t know what to do. I needed to have my bathroom renovated, and my colleague said, have you put it on Builderscrack? Then they showed me how Builderscrack works, how to log on and use the site. I put the advert on the next day, and within two

Women in Trade - Pocket Rocket Building, Rotorua

Megan Dimozantos, owner of Pocket Rocket Building Rotorua, recently made the career change to building after 17 years working in corporate leadership. She shares with us her story... It all started several years back when she tackled her own home renovation. The success of her renovation led to several friends enlisting her to do their various projects. With a few jobs under her belt she began to realise she wasn't only good at building, but she really enjoyed it - "I'm a really outdoorsy person and being physical is something I really enjoy". After lots of thought and careful planning, Megan made the decision at the end of last year to go out building full-time. Leaving behind the safety of what she knew in the corporate world, for the unknown world of a self-employed tradesperson. So far, so good. Megan has had a steady flow of referral work, surprising herself with the number of jobs she has secured through her contacts and word of mouth around Rotorua. In particul

Water damage inside exterior wall

Posted 3 months ago

There has been some water damage in an exterior bedroom wall that requires replacement of some studs and the bottom plate. As it is an external load bearing wall it would seem this work would need to be done by a LBP. The source of the damage has not been exactly located, though it is possibly from a toilet water pipe in an adjacent wall - this may be work for a plumber but if you could advise that would be great; it would be good to at least have some advice/opinion on where the water damage...
