Hi, we're Courtney Adamo & Natalie Walton

Between us, we have renovated 12 projects, covering a range of home styles, scopes, budgets and locations. We know firsthand that when you’re planning a home renovation, it can be hard to get straight answers and work out what you really need to know. We want to change that.

We started Renovation Ready to share our hard-earned knowledge with you so that you don’t have to go through the trials and tribulations that we did. We can't wait to guide you through the entire renovation process, and simplify all the decisions you need to make, as well as share what to avoid, and what you need to focus on to get your renovation right.
