Australian House Renovation Blogs

Where are they all, and why can't I find them? I'm still on my blogging "L-plates" so perhaps I'm not looking in the right places.


I'm particularly interested in blogs about renovations to Queenslanders. Thanks to Anita from Fun and VJs I've managed to link up with Mel from Bungalow Bliss and Amber from Spots and Stripes, but surely there are more out there.

I seriously love seeing what other people are doing out there, and I'm always on the hunt for first hand accounts, inspiration and new ideas. So please if you have a house reno blog, or know where I can find one, let me know about it.

  1. I know exactly what you mean, I have been trying to find them too. There are a few on my blog roll- crazy house capers are doing the house next door as an investment, nostalgia and now has just started building under, and rachael's extremely bit by bit renovation was going gangbusters but she is too busy at work to blog for a few weeks. Anita from Fun and Vj's did do a post i think back in January about all the reno blogs she knew of, perhaps we need to ask her to do an update. melx

  2. Hello!
    Mine is not specifically a renovation blog...but I am a fellow Brisbane blogger and we are SLOWLY renovating our Queenslander.
    When we bought the house it was structurally sound but the interior was full on granny. So we have spent a fair bit of time just painting...I will NEVER paint VJs again...and doing the floors. We tackled the bathroom last year. And next up will hopefully bit a big kitchen, dining, back deck addition.
    I have been reading your blog for a while and am looking forward to seeing how it all turns out!
    Cheers,
    Caitlin from Mother Down Under
    PS, here is a link to the pictures of our bathroom renovation.

  3. Hi there
    I'm renovating and blogging over in Windsor - my blog (which has been very quite of late due to variety of bit and bobs) aims to describe the process of dealing with banks, suppliers, contractors etc rather than my own particular tastes/interiors etc - but I love to get great ideas from others - such as you. Come and visit, I found your blog via Mel at Bungalow Girl.
    Cheers
