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 This one starts with a homeowner, and a vision to renovate her bathroom from an outdated 1970’s relic to a modern, clean, and functional bathroom.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

Partial removal of internal wall & adding a doorway

Posted 1 week ago

Currently, there are two smallish bedrooms adjacent to each other. We would like the partial removal of the wall between the two bedrooms to create more open and useable space. We would like to add a doorway between the two bedrooms rather than knocking the whole wall down. This is so it is easily reversible later down the line if we ever move house. We will keep the main entry from the hallway into the two bedrooms as it is. Ideally we would like this to be done this side of Christmas.

Replace half a carport roof and dispose of the old half you are replacing

Bit of a bizarre scenario. A carport that is shared by 2 units. The previous owner of the other unit, without my permission, decided to replace her half of the carport roof only. It was plain tin and she replaced her half in a red colour with a Coloursteel roof (she had Alzheimers).
