Richard's Bathroom Renovation - Australian Handyman Magazine

Handyman reader Richard Newland and his wife took on the challenge of renovating their bathroom with a modest budget. The result was this amazing transformation. While the couple’s bathroom was not in shambles prior to the renovation, it was dated and lacked the luxurious feel their current bathroom posseses. ‘My wife and I had a very small budget
of $5000 to renovate our bathroom. We wanted new flooring, wall sheeting and tiles that would reach around the shower, vanity and mirror,’ says…

The previous owners had installed a timber bar counter that took up space and didn’t suit our purposes,’ says Patricia. ‘We removed the bar and installed corrugated roof cladding along the wall and…

Amy and Hilmar's Kitchen Reno - Australian Handyman Magazine

Salvaged from a friend’s house nine years ago, Handyman readers Amy and Hilmar Hoefer’s kitchen cost only the labour to remove it. It was meant to be temporary, but grew with the family and became permanent. The kitchen was later relocated to a different area while the space was being extended, then reinstalled with benchtops made from discarded desks. The couple then repainted the timber doors and drawers and replaced the hardware to give the cabinetry an instant update. All the work was…

The window was replaced with three vertical…

About 900 moai can still be found on the remote island today. ‘I have always wanted to create something of statuesque proportions, and this replica weighs three and a half tonnes,’ says Richard. It took Richard two…

Then I poured concrete to extend the driveway, and put up a retaining wall.’ ‘The lawn was put down with reticulation, and modern New Zealand flax planted along the driveway for colour. I distributed mulch across the front of the lawn and the garden bed.’ ‘The final…
