I like reality tv shows, especially the ones where people buy old houses and do them up and sell them for money. I think of myself as a bit of a handyman, I’ve read all the renovations magazines and have a lot of my own tools. Now that I’m retired and have some money behind me I had planned on buying a rundown house at auction. I could then spend the next years of my life renovating this home and then selling it for a huge profit. I could pretend I was on a reality show, of maybe I could film the process and put it on the interwebs for people to watch. Every Saturday morning I would get the newspaper and have a look at properties for sale. I saw an add for tree lopping Brisbane that I cut out and put on the fridge, you never know when you might need yard work done. I was looking for something that needed a lot of work in a good suburb. Something that would give me a challenge and take up a lot of my time. I never married nor do I have any children so I need something that will occupy my time. My current house had just had some trees cut down because of storm damage, tree lopping Brisbane had to be called in to get rid of the clutter. The storm had done a number on the place, there were branches everywhere and I couldn’t lift them. Thankfully stump grinding Brisbane had the expertise to get rid of the huge fallen branches. I could now get back to finding my fix up home.
I found the perfect place one Sunday afternoon while casually perusing the houses for auction. I went down on auction day in the pouring rain, this was a good sign because most people don’t go to auctions when it rains. I managed to get a rundown old two bedroom townhouse for really cheap. The place was a wreck and would need a lot of work. Homeless people had been living there so the first thing I needed to do was strip the place down. I found considerable termite damage along with all the other mess left behind. I’m not expert on pests, so I had termite inspections Melbourne take a look around to see if they were still in the walls. Turns out the termites were long gone but I would still need guards put up to make sure they wouldn’t come back. The termite treatment Melbourne guys made sure the place was completely white ant free and there was no way they were coming back. I really appreciated how quickly termite control Melbourne got to work on the problem, if only I was that quick at renovating!
