SAVE TIME MONEY AND STRESS
Let’s be honest, we all think we have a pretty good idea how to renovate and build because we’ve watched it on reality TV so many times. We’ve also read many blogs and spent hours on the internet and in magazines.
So why are there still so many horror stories?
It’s because building or renovating in real life is nothing like this. There is no TV host who arrives with extra ‘surprise cash’ when you blow your budget. Without careful planning and execution you can end up living in a home that doesn’t work for you and your family and is far removed from the one you dreamt of.
So what is the biggest obstacle to getting it right?
It’s not having the RIGHT information and knowledge at the start of your journey.
You don't know what you don't know.In my experience, homeowners rapidly become aware of this, when they are in WAY TOO DEEP on their projects … and the only way out is more time, more money and more stress.
The best projects work well because everyone involved understands the process from start to finish, before they begin.
My mission with the "How To Get It Right in Your Reno or New Home" E-Course is to help you avoid the heartache and drama.
I arm you with the tools you need to save, time money and stress from the outset.
Just imagine how you will feel if:
- You have all your ducks in a row BEFORE getting started
- You feel confident and understand the terminology used by your trades and project team
- You know the right steps to take NOW in order to make your renovation or new home great
- You are clear and confident about how to SAVE YOURSELF time, money and stress along the way
- You understanding how to navigate the process and pitfalls in order to create a home that FEELS FANTASTIC
What if you could actually know, BEFORE you invest time, money and energy in your project…
THAT YOU HAVE THE STEPS IN PLACE TO GET IT RIGHT AND CREATE THAT HOME YOU’RE DREAMING OF?
(Doesn't that feel good?)
Hello! I'm Amelia Lee, the Undercover Architect.
With over 20 years industry experience, I've helped hundreds of homeowners renovate and build their own homes. I've also learned a lot about the stress, pain and joy of building and renovating from doing some of my own.
I'm on a mission to simplify your project, and help you avoid the heartache and drama many experience when building or renovating ...
My years of experience with homeowners just like you, has shown me that making mis-steps in the early planning days ... and then continuing to make them ... can fundamentally impact your reno or building project. And send you in the wrong (and expensive) direction.
How To Get It Right is designed on the system I’ve followed during my own, and my clients', renovation and building projects. It is a framework for your journey from start to finish.
