First Rung podcast: Reno 101 – What to think about if you’re about to tackle a big DIY project


Welcome to episode 2 of First Rung: Reno 101, Homed’s podcast about all things renovations.

In this episode, my colleague Kylie Klein Nixon talks to a first time homeowner who pulled off an extensive remodel of her kitchen and bathroom that turned her cottage into a “villa-ish”.

We also help you work out how to choose the right tradie for the job, and how to hire them.

Kylie also catches up with the Kiwi DIY experts who turned their passion for house flipping into a career, Moochstyle’s Georgia and Shayden Whipps.

So join us, won’t you, for another wild ride up and down the painter’s ladder of home renovation!
