How long have you been

planning your renovation?

If you're planning a renovation ...
It’s not a case of if you’ll get lost… it’s when.

What if you didn’t have to make the journey alone?

s-2

So you’re excited for your home to finally be a relaxing place for you and your family. Somewhere you can be proud of. That reflects all your hard work. A home to share and make memories. And to never have to talk about renovating again!

But alongside that excitement sits nerves and stress. Nerves about blowing your budget. Things taking longer than expected. Knowing there’s a heap of unknowns. And so many horror stories.

You’re ultimately worried about stuffing it up. Having to live with the consequences or a home you wish you’d done differently. (And have to pay the mortgage on it as well!)

Relax!

It’s this way to your beautiful renovated home …

Here is the knowledge, guidance and support you need, to save you time, money and
stress when renovating your home.

s-5

Your Reno Roadmap!

is the ultimate guide to a successful renovation.

So what is it? Here’s a snapshot…

s-6

CONSULT

You launch with your
Kickstart Consult

This helps get you started on your reno plans efficiently. It also helps you get relevant and tailored advice throughout our time together. Ideas to inspire, action tips to implement and get you started in the best possible way.

s-7

COURSE

There’s the online
E-Course

Each lesson takes you step-by-step through everything you need to know to plan your renovation. From how to speak to council, through to how to know the builder is done. Key design advice. Budget saving ideas. And everything in between.

s-8

COACHING

And 1:1 support
from me

The private Facebook group is your place to get your questions answered. Architectural advice and industry insider know-how are a moment away. That’s me, in your corner, for the duration of your membership.

s-9

COMMUNITY

Learning from others
on a similar journey

Share your journey with others. There's also member-only content and an ever-growing Q&A database from those who’ve gone before you. Learn from each other as you share your experience and journey, and cheer each other along.

Each of these components in Your Reno Roadmap work together.
They give you the knowledge and support you need to get it right, and make your reno a success.

Here’s why I created this program…

More and more through my work in Undercover Architect...

I’m meeting countless homeowners, especially women, who are spending so much time researching, exploring and investing for their renovation plans.

They’re doing it on their own. Googling into the wee hours. Pinteresting their little hearts out.

And it breaks my heart.

Because I can see how quickly and easily they can get overwhelmed, and totally inundated with all the information that’s out there.

Not knowing who to trust, what to believe and who to listen to. Hearing disaster story after disaster story.

Renovating snowballs into being this horrible overwhelming thing.
Something we’ll do a lllloooonnnngggg way down the track.
When we’ve got more time, and more money.

s-11

BUT…

Meanwhile your house isn’t working. Your kitchen is dark and crappy. You can’t see the kids outside whilst you’re inside. Storage is bad … or non-existent.

Everything is a compromise.

But you’ve just got used to living with it.

Because renovating seems like this sort of thing that will happen at some point in the future.

And what I would love to tell you, if this is you is...

You don’t have to go it alone.

LET ME HELP!
Be your guide, your coach, your secret ally.

I’ll teach you the steps you need to know and follow.

Right from the most important first steps … through to how to know your builder is
finished and you can move back in. And everything in between. So you can get it right.

For me, it’s not good enough that homeowners feel horrible, and find that the whole
renovating process is daunting, and nerve-wracking and overwhelming.

I want you to feel excited. I want you to feel in control, confident and empowered.

That’s what Your Reno Roadmap is all about.

So you can be equipped with the knowledge, tools and support you need to make your reno great. And empowered to make the whole journey of preparing and executing your renovation that much simpler. And so you feel more in control whilst you do it.

Who knows? You might find you can actually renovate sooner…

“I wish we’d waited longer to renovate our home.”

– said No One ever

“Why did we wait so long? This is fantastic. Look at what we’re living in. This just makes our lives so much better.”

– says you, in your renovated home!

Your Reno Roadmap members live all over Australia! Here is a snapshot

Here’s the detail about

Your Reno Roadmap!

and what your membership includes.

Your Kickstart Session

is a uniquely tailored headstart from me, Amelia Lee.

Your Reno Roadmap membership starts with your Kickstart Session.

This is 1:1 advice to get started on your renovation in the most confident way. Your questions answered, with tailored advice for your project. Recorded in a password-protected video, from me to you.

s-16

01 >

When you join Your Reno Roadmap, you’ll be sent a link to a special survey to tell me more about you and your home.

02 >

Complete your survey and return to me. You can also email through any information or questions you wish me to review in preparation for your Kickstart Session.

03 >

I'll then prepare your personalised and unique video (30 mins plus in length). Unique action steps you can immediately take to get your project going.

04 >

You’ll be sent a password-protected link to your Kickstart Session so you can watch (and re-watch it) as you wish. You'll be sent a summary report as well.

From my experience, it's often how a homeowner starts their journey, and those first steps they take, that fundamentally impacts how well the reno goes, and the result they create.

This will get you kicked off with specific, unique and expert 1:1 advice for your home and your renovation – and ensure I can really support you throughout your project – knowing you and your home.

Members LOVE this session for helping them jump-start their reno, and take action immediately and confidently.

You can use your Kickstart Session to get any type of info you need from me to get started on your reno.

Already got plans from another designer? I can review them. Don’t even know where to start? I’ll lay out a strategy and next action steps. Your questions. My answers.

(See below in the FAQs for more detail about what happens in a Kickstart Session – it’s yours as your bonus to use in the first 90 days of your membership. I recommend to get the most from it and the program overall, you use it straight away).

Besides the information, this course has given me a sense of confidence and a sense of having someone there who will help me. Undercover Architect – you’re very honest. You’re very knowledgeable and you’re available as some who wants to help. For someone like me … that’s enormously reassuring.

Your Reno Roadmap includes my super comprehensive, online e-course:“30 Days to Reno Ready”.

s-15v2

You’ll learn the step-by-step process I’ve used to save time, money and stress … again and again. Delivered in video, audio, transcripts, written guides, checklists, worksheets, summaries …

This fantastic online course exists in its own website, and you get a private, secure login to see it all.

And it’s made available as a downloadable Your Reno Roadmap Toolkit PDF Guide – over 200 pages – yours to keep FOREVER!

It’s broken into 4 modules, which cover the 4 stages of every renovation project (whether your budget is $50,000 or over $1,000,000).

Module 1

where to begin before you design

You want to be well-prepared before you hit ‘go’ on planning your renovation. You can be really excited, and then get frustrated and confused by the process, the terminology, all the different professionals, and just how many choices you need to make to even get going. Making mis-steps in those early days can fundamentally change your journey overall, and send you in a wrong (and expensive) direction.

Instead, what if you could be strategic? Have all your ducks in a row, understand the overall process and who you’ll actually need to get on board (and how to budget for them).

You’ll get comprehensive info and tips on…

> How to access your local rules;
> How to define your big picture goals;
> How to set a realistic reno budget for your asset, and
> How to determine the best renovation strategy for your home.

Module 2

getting your design right

Homeowners constantly tell me “I just want to get it right”.

Yet, when you start designing your renovation, what happens is you’re checking off a list of wants and needs, you’re twisting and contorting your existing house to make it happen, and you end up with just bigger versions of the problems you already have – costing more and taking more time.

What if you could tap into what’s already working in your property and maximise its potential? Make your home feel spacious, calm and peaceful, without having to make it huge and costly. And have the means to explain it to your team of professionals.

I’ll teach you (and provide actionable steps and great resources):

> How to recognise the maximum existing potential offered by your property
> How to plan the perfect sized spaces for your lifestyle
> How to create spaciousness
> How to calculate your budget

Module 3

Before you start to build

You can be so desperate to get on site and start construction that the last minute details get put off. Then what happens is you’re making decisions ‘on the fly’, juggling them with a busy lifestyle, or handing over the decision-making to others who aren’t clear on your true wishes. You’re stressed and feeling like you’re not getting it right because you’re making decisions with limited choices under pressure. Or you’re throwing money at it to get it sorted.

Imagine instead knowing at various points along your project what your costs are going to be? Adjusting as you go, seeking savings and developing great, trusted partnerships with your team. So when construction starts, everyone has all the information they need, and you know it’s all included in your costs.

You’ll learn the nitty-gritty of…

> How to recognise opportunities to maximise natural light, heating and cooling
> How to choose appropriate and sustainable lighting and power solutions
> How to get accurate pricing for your renovation
> How to get your plans drawn efficiently

Module 4

getting your reno built

This is where everything comes to a head, and where your life can be most significantly disrupted. Usually you’ve moved out – with friends or family – or you’re paying rent (and a mortgage) and watching your beloved family home be ripped apart and put back together. You’ll feel like your haemorrhaging money as the invoices come thick and fast. And each delay can have a domino effect on your life overall.

Instead, what if your construction could be drama-free? Working with a trusted team who are so clear on what you want, they can all get on with what they’re great at. And they simply hand you the keys when it’s all ready for you to move back into your beautiful, transformed home?

We’ll go through in detail…

> How to find and work with your professional team, builder and tradespeople
> How to effectively manage work on site
> How to get the best bang for your buck from a tight budget
> How to stay sane during construction

There’s also checklists, funsheets and action steps along the way to implement your learning and build your toolkit for your project. Picture you ticking things off, feeling you’re accomplishing big steps in planning your reno, and getting it right.

Plus online workshops and bonuses that dive into more detail.

No stone left unturned. All the information you need to make your reno great.

30 Days to Reno Ready is an amazing resource. I would highly recommend. Not only is Amelia knowledgeable in her field, she’s a real person who has done it herself! Tried and tested. The personal aspect she adds to her program makes it even better than just an APP or an online course.

Your membership also includes 1:1 Coaching from me in the UA Village.

s-9

And you join a Community of Renovators sharing their journey with you.

The UA Village is a private Facebook Group where you can get your questions answered by me. You also learn from other renovators along the way. Your own Reno Coach for each step of the journey.

s-18

A lot happens in The UA Village! It’s a place where you can learn more, ask questions (of me and others in the program) and learn from the experience of other renovators – on the same journey as you.

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, I run ‘office hours’ where I’m available all day to answer your questions. I have one rule – there’s no such thing as a silly question!

Here’s some snapshots of recent posts – you can see it’s a range of personalised advice (delivered via screen recordings or videos), links to relevant projects, behind-the-scenes on current projects of mine, and other helpful info only available here.

(One of the reasons I include the Kickstart session is so I can know your home, and your project – and can then answer your questions specifically in the UA Village. And I can also share relevant information about products and materials I know will help you in your project).

They say it takes a village to raise a child – well, I think a village helps with most things in our life – and The UA Village is no exception!

Your membership includes access to a private, member-only blog. We share previous conversations from The UA Village, as well as loads more specialised info and advice.

This blog grows as an incredible library and go-to resource as others share their learnings and access advice from me.

Amelia’s expertise is second to none. Her experience in the industry and depth of knowledge is profound, while her designs and concepts are practical, thoughtful and completely user friendly. I recommend this program for not just the amateur, but also the seasoned, the professional, the consultant, the contractor or the builder – one can never have enough knowledge or insight into the renovation process.

When I brought home this little munchkin from hospital (he’s now 10), I temporarily left my role as a Project Architect. I’d been managing big projects worth millions of dollars, and dealing with tradespeople and builders on a daily basis.

We were doing our second renovation project at the time. Tradespeople turned up, not knowing I was an architect. I was a mum-with-a-baby-on-my-hip. And wow, was I treated differently.

It was eye-opening. For the first time in my career, I got incredible insight into the experience that most homeowners – you – have when renovating. I was gobsmacked.

I could see how easily, as a non-professional, you could be bamboozled, misled, given crappy advice, and done over. And ultimately, not get what you were paying for, or dreaming of.

It wasn’t good enough. There had to be a better way.
Your Reno Roadmap IS that way.

Here’s what some of the alumni have to say about the program …
