I don’t want to alarm you (well, not much anyway), but there’s a real chance that at some point in the future you will be overcome by the need to renovate.
You may not think it could ever happen to you. After all, you’ve managed to get through life so far without succumbing to planking, Facebook or Justin Bieber.
But all it takes is a few episodes of The Block, a month of nagging from your partner or one too many Bunnings commercials, and suddenly you’ll think you’re a jack-of-all-trades instead of someone who knows jack.
Before you know it you’re digging random holes for a deck, chipping away tiles in the bathroom or taking out an entire wall (and quite possibly the electricity).
If you’re lucky, you’ll come to your senses before it’s too late (i.e. before you start) and either abandon the idea or get a professional to finish the job. But be warned: you may be so determined/stubborn/delusional that you keep going until either the job’s done or the beer runs out.
And the result? Well, you could have a new deck in your back yard, a freshly tiled bathroom or an ‘open-plan’ living area. Or, if you insisted on doing it yourself, a tiled deck in the middle of the lounge room. (“Well, we’ve always wanted a dancefloor…”)
Regardless of who did the work, one thing you’ll definitely have is a large pile of debris. And as much as you’d like to keep all those timber offcuts, broken tiles and beer bottles as a monument to all your hard work, your partner will think it’s an eyesore. And considering how the bathroom now looks, that’s quite a statement.
Now you could try getting rid of it yourself, but chances are you’ll miss a tile fragment or something, which is just asking for trouble. Even if your partner doesn’t notice it straight away, they will when your lawn mower sends it hurtling through the lounge room window. After all, there’s nothing worse than broken glass on the dancefloor.
A much better option is to give Brizzy Rubbish Removals a call. They’ll quickly come around to your house, remove all the renovation rubble and debris and take it away for you. You won’t have to lift a finger, which is just as well because it’s quite sore.
Instead, you can simply enjoy the fruits of your labours. See you on the dance floor.
