I now want you to ask yourself these important questions and answer them honestly!

  • What will you save by doing the job yourself rather than paying a qualified trade or professional? What is your time worth to you? 
  • Will undertaking this project allow you to keep receiving your usual weekly income? 
  • Will you save bucket-loads of money by managing the project yourself? 
  • Do you have lots of time to source quotes and answer trades’ ongoing queries daily? 
  • Do you have the technical knowledge and understanding of the building industry? 
  • Do you have access to reliable trades and suppliers? 
  • Are you an honest and fair negotiator? 
  • Are you able to inspect the work and pay the trades on time once the job is completed? 
  • Are you passionate and strong in your goals with plenty of ‘get up and go’? 
Rate your answers on a scale of 1 - 10. If you rate over 8 on all of these questions, then YES, you are ready to undertake the job alone. If you rate under 8 then, PLEASE learn more or ask for professional help.
