I’m about to move into a house that’s double the size of the house I currently live in. That’s obviously really exciting as I’m moving onto bigger and better things and can afford to live more in luxury. The only issue is that I don’t have enough furniture to furnish the house! I never even considered this to be a problem until I walked into the house for the first time. Once I realised that the living room was almost the size of my old apartment, I knew that I had to do some serious furniture shopping. And then I remembered that I spent all my money on buying this house so I had to get creative. I decided that I had to take matters into my own hands (well, outsource it) and hire someone to build furniture for me. As a part of the deal, I told them that I would source all the materials they needed to make my furniture. I know for a fact that I want some cute fairy lights around the house and so I’ve already been to the hardware store and picked up some electrical supplies. In the Cheltenham area, it’s really easy to visit the hardware store because it’s so local, so I look like a good person by offering to help out the person who’s helping me, even though it’s not hard for me in the slightest.
To ensure that I’m getting the most value out of the DIY builder I’ve hired, I conducted several interviews with people in my neighbourhood to choose the best person. I can safely say that the person I chose is the best and he has a lot of experience. He’ll be able to build plenty of things, which made my trip to the hardware store in Sandringham worthwhile. I’m sure that every material that I chose will be used and I’m very much looking forward to seeing what he produces.
