    You'll learn how to approach things.
    I'm a dab hand with the no more gaps now
    I tend to do painting (which is what I"m supposed to be doing now), DF does all the cosmetic structure stuff (he's got every tool known). Read instructions, ask at Bunnings, google. I also looked at pictures of posher houses and if I saw something I liked I saved the picture to give me ideas. Just getting started with painting can cost a small fortune though.
    Paint
    Brushes (get the best you can afford and look after them)
    Rollers
    Drop sheets
    sugar soap
    rags
    masking tape
    filler
    sand paper
    no more gaps

    Renovating is such a slow and expensive experience. Never think that 'mates' and family are going to be able to do what you what, when you want. most tradies work 6 days a week and dont want to be spending the 1 free day a week off they have trying to do work for you. Like sure, they will get around to it, but hey, you could be waiting forever!! lol I also have a husband who is not a handy man so its an even slower process.

    You should talk to a builder. If you're looking at a property, you should really get quotes and take a builder around before you buy the property so you can a.) make sure it is possible, and b.) make sure that its not going to cost an extra $100,000 because you have to completely change the whole roof as some aren't set out right to make changes where you want them.
