If you’re like most busy people … you are very time poor; sure you can do all the research, but WHEN … and WHERE do you start?
The more research that you do on your own, the more confusing it can become; because you don’t have any previous experience, reference point or knowledge about ‘XYZ’, and the learning curve is often steep.
Having a qualified tradesperson / trainer to guide you through the maze will provide you with a massive advantage, because there are so many different paths to take … any it’s vital that you choose the right one for you.
I have spent over 2,000 hours developing the most comprehensive training program about inspecting, renovating, extending and building houses ever created in Australia.
“The course was specifically created for Home Owners, Renovators & Property Investors living in Melbourne, because the rules & regulations in Sydney and other states throughout Australia are VERY different and not relevant.”
There’s not much point investing in a generalist training program that tries to please everyone and inevitable fails to please anyone.
Hybrid Renovating ™ is full of valuable information that I’ve acquired over 30 years, and the strategic advice and tips that I share in the course each week will definitely save you time … in fact, a LOT of time!
Quotations from Builders & Tradespeople can vary by as much as three hundred percent … that’s right 300%.
There are several reasons, including:
1.They’re not quoting apples for apples; and / or
2.They’re trying to rip you off!
Hybrid Renovating ™ empowers you with the knowledge you need for each trade / piece of the puzzle, so you can develop your own project specifications, and never have anyone try and pull the wool over your eyes again.
“The notes include lists of recommended suppliers based in Melbourne that the tradies buy from. Knowing where to go (not so easy), what to ask for, and how to request trade pricing will often save you 20 to 40% or more!”
I have also included sample fee structures for each of the trades.
You’ll be in a great position to negotiate.
TV Shows are all about creating artificial drama and product placement, whereas Hybrid Renovating ™ is all about AVOIDING those problems, by empowering you with the knowledge you need beforehand.
“I am a qualified ‘A’ Grade Electrician and have been project managing … repairing, renovating & building houses for over 30 years, and the LAST thing you want on any site is drama.”
Hybrid Renovating ™ incorporates everything that I’ve learnt; so you don’t have to make the same mistakes that so many novices or non-tradespeople do, because it’s :
- Too late;
- Too expensive;
- Too time consuming ; and
- VERY stressful to try and learn on the run
The most common theme on our testimonials page is: “I wish I had completed this course before I started my project …”
My projects run smoothly … the last place you want to end up in is a Tribunal or Courtroom; but so many people do, because they trusted the builder or tradespeople, and didn’t empower themselves with knowledge BEFORE they started.
Hybrid Renovating ™ will also teach you how to source your own team:
- Tradespeople; and / or
Forget about all the waffle you‘ve read on the web about finding great people … I’ll teach you how it’s really done; because that’s the simplest way to eliminate most of the stress.
Stay Safe & Healthy
If you care about your family & tradespeople … and of course you DO, then Health & Safety should be your No. 1 priority. Building sites can be VERY dangerous places if people don’t adhere to industry best practices and take the appropriate care.
The first module in Hybrid Renovating ™ is entitled – ‘Safety & First Aid‘
“At least 12 people per week in Melbourne are hospitalised for injuries sustained from DIY renovation accidents and 1,900 Victorians have been admitted in the past 3 years.”

You’ll learn everything you need to know to stay safe & healthy, and protect you and your family from injury … or much worse! Sure, you might not be doing most , or ANY of the work and just project managing; but the second anyone steps onto a building site, they are also exposed to the same risks.
Improve Build Quality
Remember these very important words …
“Unless you specify what you want; the default option will be the cheapest way … because tradespeople are not telepathic.”
Tradespeople are also not your friends, you have to understand that; they are running a business, and if they can cut corners or install a cheaper product, then they will, UNLESS you specify EXACTLY what you want.
Hybrid Renovating ™ includes hundreds of pages to help you do that … along with references to the relevant Australian Standards which are there to protect you.
Once tradespeople understand that you have empowered yourself with knowledge, two (2) things will happen:
1.The build quality & finish will go UP!; and
2.The price will come down
Avoid Any Nasty Surprises
Ever wonder why your friends all know someone who has had a renovation or building nightmare, or they themselves have had an encounter with a builder or tradesperson from HELL?
“Well sadly it’s become the norm, almost acceptable … and that’s wrong!”
Home Owners & Property Investors should not have to be held hostage by unethical builders & tradespeople, and CAN be proactive in protecting themselves from the same thing happening to them.
Modules 3, 4, 5 & 6 of Hybrid Renovating ™ provides you with all the ammunition you need to protect yourself:
- Consulting Team
- Owner Builder / Contracts
- Project Management
If you apply what you learn in the course, and cross the ‘T’ & dot the ‘I’s in valid contracts; then you’ll be able to protect yourself against the vast majority of nasty surprises – i.e. unexpected variations of 1, 5 & $10K or more from contractors.
Most disputes related to properties are also avoidable when you’re smart, and empower yourself with as much knowledge as you can BEFORE a project starts, however if you do run into an issue that you can’t resolve.
Module 24 includes 80 pages of detailed information plus a ‘Quick Reference Guide’ to help you get back on track.
The more you know … the better.
