    I will be in the process of renovating a 2/1/1 in Brisbane next Month, given that I am from Sydney I will have to stick to a time limit of 1 week.

    I am hoping to do most of the work myself to save on costs, however will need to outsource part of it to ensure I can complete on time.

    I will be hoping to outsource the following:

    - Light/Switch replacements
    - Carpet/Floor boards
    - Tiling in bathroom and kitchen
    - Benchtop cut/installation

    I am wondering whether there are any handyman available we can possible complete most of the work above rather than me outsourcing to 4 different tradies.

    I will try serviceseeking.com.au, however if you guys have any recommendations please let me know!

    Thank you.

    I'm currently conducting a Reno in Brisbane from Melbourne and done a lot of my work through hipages.com and contacts through my property manager. Chuck an ad up and literally get replies within minutes, with options to choose from. Highly recommend the site/app

    You can buy the switches and lights yourself and only pay for the time to install by an electrcian
