Another thread had me wondering about barriers to interstate renovations. Often some of the best buys are places that with a small amount of work could be worth a lot more. Often these are no where near where we live. So I'm wondering how you manage your interstate renovations, or conversely what are the barriers if you would like to do it, but you don't think you can. I recently renovated more than 1000km's from home. At the time I was thankful that I had family close by and the use of their tools. Not sure it would have been possible otherwise. So how do you do it, or why not? Going to time how long it takes DaveM to mention taking a ladder on the plane.
