A reno update

It is been a wild 18 months. If you follow alongside typically you will know that I have had some huge changes… anyway, that is not what I’m here for currently due to the fact I needed to give you an update on wherever I’m at with the renovations!

Early this calendar year I completed a reno on a small dwelling that I turned in to an Airbnb. I started off the lodging in February this 12 months and in 4 months I strike Superhost position. I’m very happy of that and boy have I learnt a ton. I am aiming to share all of that in a new E book I’m producing. Indication up to know more about that here.

That Airbnb residence is booked out each individual weekend and periodically throughout the week. I do also get personal bookings which occur straight from Instagram. All of that appears to be to be operating out effectively for now.

The Airbnb property is not in a prime site (Wagga is not a spot holiday getaway area), but I am even now getting fantastic good results with it. If you are wanting at accomplishing one thing identical you DO NOT have to be on the seaside, or own a unique farm-keep to run an Airbnb.

Then at the exact time as the Airbnb I commenced renovating a minor property I stay in. Of course, insane!!!

So, in 18 months I’ve performed two loos (a person ensuite to go), two laundries, two kitchens, four dwelling rooms, six bedrooms, a bar, exteriors, fences, roofs, gardens…. so many matters!

I did the maths last night…

I have just about tripled the fairness in this residence with a $50K budget for renos.

I under no circumstances enable the price tag of items get out of command.

I do have support, and I spend tradies where I need to have to. But I test to coordinate and take care of as a lot Do it yourself as doable.

So what’s remaining to do on my very little house?

  • I have to do the smallest ensuite you have at any time observed
  • Skirting boards and architraves
  • Far more paint on home windows
  • All the gloss perform
  • Touch up in the laundry
  • Learn bedroom paint and flooring

Then what is up coming?

I am not totally positive. Ha! An individual tell me what to do!

But I believe I am going to seem for a work. I have been doing a ton of freelance and which is great simply because I have so much flexibility, but I have options for a 3rd property, and that will need sound payslips if the financial institution is heading to be kind to me! Bummer.

I never know if I’ll offer this residence I’m living in, or continue to keep it. So I hold inquiring the universe to enable and guidebook me.

I’m not in a hurry, so what will be will be.

I have been doing the job so tricky on myself, my perspective, my frame of mind and motivation recently. I know that functioning tricky, pushing ahead and building chances only arrives from stepping out of my consolation zone and not supplying a shit about what any individual thinks or says.

The times are not boring, they are full to the brim. Some excellent, some undesirable.

But I am surely not exactly where I was 12 months in the past and I surely won’t be in the identical location yet again in 12 months time. And which is remarkable (even if I have no plan what/wherever that will be).

Plus comply with on Instagram since I dwell above there and you’ll be in a position to see all the renos.
