Hello, my name is Eric and I have recently been helping my mother to remodel and renovate her home. Since my father passed away, the house had fallen into disrepair. I felt a little guilty because I live in Perth on the other side of the country so I only visit her once or twice a year. When I did visit, I would notice things like a bucket in the bathroom to catch the water from a dripping pipe and lights that would flicker because the wiring was broken. I fixed what I could using my own DIY skills and called in contractors to fix the rest. The contractors gave me some really useful tips so I decided to start a blog.
