Home Renovations

Dear Diary,

Home renovation shows are the thing in this house - particular House Rules, and Under the Hammer... I just realised the humour in the title of the latter. They are bought at auction, and then go 'under the hammer' for renovations... Wow, I should have written about this earlier. Much respect.
Anyhow... where was I? Ahhh yes- asbestos. We have to (would be incredibly sensible to) sell our Quakers Hill home soon. It needs modernising before we sell.
Everything I want to DIY, is stopped by the incredibly vigilant Worplace Health and Safety Officer (Rona).
One of the downsides of being married to a doctor is they know lost of things that can kill you... Because she sees younger and younger people suffering from asbestosis, I can't take wallpaper off the walls. She's put a stop to me gutting the bathroom for the tiler. I'm okay with that, it makes total sense. I'm sure many people have 'future killed' themselves by trying to get the tiler's costs down. But wallpaper! It's totally fair enough, and I can't prove it's safe - so she's probably saving my life... but I just want to do what the reckless people do on the TV! I'm inspired to create and beautify.. even if death is likely, I still want pretty walls..

Anyhow I need somewhere to records these measurements for painting the kitchen laminate-

Cabinetry:
.72+.448+.16+.112+1.08= 2.52 msq

Benchtop:
1.074 + 0.35 = 1.4 msq

Tiles:
1.84 + 0.36 = 2.2 msq.


Bye Bye.

David
