A 3yo’s Take on Having Plasterers in the Home

t’s not every day you get to show off your crayons — at least that’s how three-year-old Quinn felt shortly after meeting the tradespeople plastering her living room. Quinn’s mother, Kate, tells me the crayons were just the start, and that Wayne and Ronan from Claddagh Plastering coped incredibly well with her daughter’s constant line of questioning while working. “She would walk up beside them and say ‘look at my carrots’, ‘I’ve got cucumber’, and ask them ‘do you want to be my friend?’,” Kate laughs. “Wayne was really good with her, he’d take time to say ‘oh wow, yes, wow look at that’ — I think he’s got young ones at home, so he was used to it. “She’d stand there and watch them work, mesmerised by the plaster being put on, it was very cute.” As Kate and I relish Quinn’s adorable toddler bravado, Kate lets me in on how they got to this point of renovating their home, and let’s just say, anyone with EQC experience will be able to relate. “We Could Start to Se

Dogstruction Calls for Repairs to Walls, Skirting and Doors

Don’t be fooled by those cute puppy dog eyes; homeowner Maddie says that ‘butter wouldn’t melt’ when it comes to Indie, her beloved golden retriever x border collie pup. If you’re familiar with that puppy phase — teething, pre-teen cheek and curiosity — you’ll know the damage they can do when exploring their world (aka your home). A Gnawing Time for Indie At around 5 months old, Indie started chewing the walls and skirting boards as a way of coping with what Maddie described as separation anxiety. “She’s very bright, active and needs to be kept busy, so before lockdown when we were out and about, we would give her the run of the house,” Maddie says. “She had a good go at the front and back entrance ways, then in the two bedrooms. “We found the holes pretty much immediately — she was always very sheepish when we saw them — and she would be slinking around with her head down and tail between her legs.” Repairing The Damage Throughout lockdown, Maddie and her wife w

Small Bathroom Renovation Turns Major When The Unexpected Happens

ulian and Lexie had one month, $5k and a straightforward plan to renovate their small bathroom. Let’s just say, if you like a good ‘down to the wire’ reno story, you’ll love this couple’s drama-filled journey from settlement to move in day. We’re talking budget blow-outs, schedule delays, on-the-spot decisions and eight scope changes. Yeah — total ‘Block’ vibes, right? Julian jokes that he had a couple of grey hairs come flying through at a rapid rate. “It was a significant, unforeseen scenario,” Julian says, alluding to the cause of the delays. This eventful Project Story will leave you with practical insights for your own bathroom renovation. You’ll discover: What to look out for in your pre-purchase building inspection How to manage scope and budget changes The full list of bathroom upgrades What they would do in hindsight (involves saving money!) Plus, the awesome before and after photos. Let’s get stuck into i
