Project planner for home renovations

Optimise Home Renovation Planner

Bringing together 25 years of experience project managing extensions and renovations, architect and interior designer Denise O’Connor recently published The Optimise Home Renovation Planner. 

The planner is a working guide to coach homeowners through the renovation process with tips and advice gathered from her experience working on hundreds of projects. “Always remember it’s a vicious circle. Improving or updating one area of your home will highlight other areas that need work,” says the architect.
