Presentation by Resident Builder Peter Wolfkamp

Think about the exhilaration of a job well done and the soul-crashing disappointment when things go wrong. Now, tell us which you would rather have: a renovation job that takes a property from meh to WOW or one that leaves you with the same four walls after draining your time, energy and money? 

It doesn’t take long to work out, does it?

The Block’s foreman and Newstalk ZB’s Resident Builder, Peter Wolfkamp, will share his building expertise and insights on the building industry, how you can pivot your approach to maximise your results, and what it takes to be your own project champion in this market.

Session topics include

🛠️ How to manage a successful renovation

🛠️ How to get the most out of tradies, what to do and what not to do

🛠️ Is it a good idea to supply materials yourself

🛠️ How to get a job done well and on time, lessons Peter picked up over the years

🛠️ What should you do if things go awry

🛠️ When is DIY a good idea, and the false economy trap

🛠️ Update on LBP changes

🛠️ Other insights and experiences to add value to your next renovation project
