I keep seeing adverts for this on my Instagram. We are about to start an enormous house renovation project andninwas wondering if it worth I vesting in their package. It's basically a budget planner and loads of tutorials on the whole process. Costs about £60.

Does anyone have any experience of them? Any reviews or thoughts welcome, good or bad. Thanks.

Hi not sure if its late. Not sure why spending £60. I purchased just the spreadsheet calculators from their website for under £10 (on 50% discount offer). Rest are videos. Plenty of them on Youtube for free.

Btw: We are also on home renovation projects.

Bought their renovator's bundle which was really helpful so upgraded to the course recently and there's loads of additional stuff in there. We're renovating a 1950s bungalow and already saved about £1000 in architect fees. Budget planner is only the tip of the iceberg in the course, loads more in there you can't get elsewhere. Main reason we bought it however was for the step by step process and it has really delivered. Definitely recommend.

So it's basically a couple who've done up a house and are now marketing themselves as professionals in interior design and project management. Ok. I've trimmed my fringe so maybe I can market myself as a hairdresser?

I would recommend you try the course and then comment. It's really helped me and my wife renovate. It's expertly delivered, has some great tools made and used by them and to be honest with you, I'd rather listen to someone who has had direct practical experience than theory/academia.

Hi @dadsweb, the cost has now gone up to £349 (£100 off until Sunday). Would you still recommend it at this price?

Sorry didn't see your message! There's a facebook community now so that's probably why the price is higher. For the money we've saved and the peace of mind it's definitely worth it. If you like getting organised (which is something you really have to do when renovating) then I say go for it.

Really sorry, I missed your reply too! Thanks for the info though, it’s really useful smile

Sorry can’t see the need for this.

There’s loads of free YouTube videos plus spreadsheets you can modify to your needs. At the price of the can’t see the value added.
