Jenny Seaton continues her series of helpful tips to assist the do-it-yourself renovator or home builder with the help of Home Base Expo in Subiaco.

This week, Jenny again talks with plumber and Home Base Expo spokesman, Dean Harnett, about the correct steps in being a successful owner/builder.

Dean explains that Home Base Expo conduct regular Owner/Builder courses and at any time, experts are on hand to help with any queries.

Dean also explains the meaning of the term BOQ, which simply means Bill of Quantities, a document that lists all the components required to build the home, set against a budget figure. This is absolutely vital for the owner/builder to keep control of project costs.

Jenny also discusses the desirability of seeking multiple quotes for work to be done and supply of goods; the need for regular site visits to maintain schedule and to question tradesmen about any aspect of the project at all times.

Home Base Expo is located on Level 1, 55 Salvado Road, Subiaco on the corner of Harbourne Street. Contact them on 9388 1088 for more information.
