One great way to save on this one-hour task is to provide your tradesfolk with a locked space on site that they can securely There are obviously many things your tradies wont be able to delegate to you, but youll be amazed how many little jobs you can take off their hands (and how grateful they often are). 4. GET DIRTY There are a lot of jobs during a home improvement project that can be done by even the most unskilled renovator, like digging holes and moving dirt. So roll up those sleeves and give it a go. Obviously its essential to listen to your tradies and work within the workplace health and safety boundaries (which they will be able to guide you on), but in most cases you will find your team will welcome the extra help.
