As a first time buyer, renovating a newly bought house can be extremely costly and difficult. Not to mention trying to find a decent builder who will not try to take advantage. Unfortunately, I came across a builder who not only charged an arm and a leg, but who also managed to leave the flexi-pipe under the sink so twisted and bent out shape, it caused a hole in the pipe and my bathroom was flooded Within the space of week. So now my newly laid floor tiles looked horrible and to make matters worse, my kitchen ceiling had a hole due to the flood. I felt like a young tom hanks in the movie "The money pit" only I'm not a lawyer! After a year the bathroom still needs work but after I had the kitchen ceilIing repaired, I simply cannot afford a makeover.
