Hubby and I just purchased our 1st house!! Eeek!!
We're jumping straight into the deep end and kicking off some renovations before we move in so I'm after whatever tips you can give me. Where are some great places in Perth or that deliver to Perth for cheap materials? Second hand, carton damaged etc? Hubby is a tradie so we will be doing most of the work ourselves.
Half the kitchen and bathroom have already been pulled out as the current owner was about to start renovating before selling but we are buying in current condition. We're finishing the kitchen and bathroom and redoing the floors throughout before we move in.

Congrats on your first house @twolittlemunchkins exciting!
Make sure to look on gumtree and your local buy, swap, sell pages, sometimes people are getting rid of flooring, kitchens, bathrooms etc for such a good price. We've picked up so much stuff in the past from left over tiles and timber floors. Only the other day I saw someone selling a beautiful near new kitchen for a few hundred dollars. All the best with the reno's

Bumping this one more time. Settlement is next week so we start renos then. I bought some gorgeous tiles brand new off gumtree for that will tile the laundry/toilet floor.
Does anyone know where I could get good but cheap second hand kitchen cabinets or doors, and benchtop? It's quite a large bench in an L shape, one side is 2m long, the other 4m long.

We are in the process of renovating , we are lucky we have tradies in the family so we've gotten all our bathroom supplies and most hardware at trade discounts so I can't help you with that ( unless your in Sydney!) DH is a great negotiator so has gotten discounts on most things ( it never hurts to ask !) my advice is just to research your look and style ( are you intending on staying long term or is it an investment you will sell soon?)! Research your materials ( you can get cheap Caesar stone the same price as laminate if you shop around and are not picky with colours )
