    I have done live in renos (both around 8 days straight at 15+ hrs per day) in both Brisbane and the central QLD coast (not quite Cairns) and I would take the coast any day. I still remember sitting on an upturned paint can after a day in the back yard in my old Brissy place watching literal litres of sweat hit the ground and thinking to myself it was the hardest I had EVER physically worked given the humidity (that was a January reno, chalk it up to being stupid in my younger years).

    At least I know what sweat equity is.

    I have literally just gone and still going through exactly that!

    Elevated block in north brissy hills - Exterior painting and 600Lm of decking was my entire xmas break, i thought i was going to die some days. Haha

    Hey saves paying someone the best part of $30-$40k so worth it.

    I am with you.

    Once we sell our Brisbane home, we are off to the coast, the Gold Coast (Kirra/Coolangatta).

    Can’t wait to have those lovely sea breezes blowing through my curls every day.

    Scaffolding alone on my place would cost $3k.. I think you missed the part where I said 600+ metres of decking, materials alone for both were close to $10k.

    $3k is cheap, if you can find someone to do a good job go for it..

    That is why the old-fashioned people build houses up high to catch the breezes and preferably on the eastern side of the ridge top. Ventilation is so 19th Century. "Modern" houses don't work.

    I can't breathe in Perth and Adelaide over Summer. Their climate is way too dry for me.

    That's the good part about buying into the hilly section within Brisbane ,around about 2-3 in the afternoon most times the breeze from the bay comes in very different in the lower sections ,plus it's never flooded on the hills..

    It is a marketing ploy to keep all the Mexicans from crossing over the border, taking our jobs, pushing up property prices, increasing congestion on our beaches, roads, public transport, ...

    A lot cheaper (and probably a lot more effective) than building a Trump Wall :D.

    It's not hard to wonder how many others would think the same way.

    Yep and why the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast are much better investments than Brisbane! Nobody really wants to live in Brisbane particularly the baby boomers who are retiring ;-)
