1. Where do you live and why?
We live in Coorparoo.
We bought a home there to renovate in, roughly, April, 2017.
We chose Coorparoo because it’s a central location for both of us for work.
2. What is the best thing about your suburb?
The best thing about the suburb is that it’s a quiet, super friendly neighbourhood.
It’s only 10 minutes to the city, and it’s growing, with developments like Coorparoo Square now complete.
3. What do you love about your home?
I love that it’s now a home that we’ve created.
With all the renovations, the house is completely different, so it’s cool to see our plans come to life.

4. What would you change about your home?
If I could change anything about the home, it would be on a bigger block, and it would be a double story house.
Besides those things not really being options, we love that we’ve kept the character of the house.
5. Describe your dream home and location in Queensland?
My dream home in Queensland would be somewhere right on the beach, either on the Gold Coast or in Noosa.
Walking out the back door on to the beach would be amazing.
6. If money was no option, what would be your fantasy home anywhere in the world and where?
My fantasy home anywhere in the world would be somewhere like the Amalfi Coast in Italy.
7. What was the best piece of property advice you were give? Or what was the biggest lesson you learned?
The best lesson we’ve learned is that you always go over budget and over time with a renovation — just like everyone says!
