Will these owners keep or sell their dream reno?

first_imgAnd what it looked like before the renovation. And after. And how it looked after. And before the renovation. The renovated living room. That’s a big difference. While John started out wanting to stay, through the course of the show and after Andrew Winter showed them what else was available, they have decided to list it.“Once we had two boys, they are little puppies and they need a yard to run around and we don’t have a yard, it’s basically a deck and a pool,’’ Georgia said.“So for me it really didn’t mean what we did physically to change the house by building in underneath, you can’t actually change the footprint of the house.’’“By the end of the show I sort of came around to that a little bit,’’ John said.“I had always thought we’ll have the front yard and, we will have more house but the more and more we got to see other properties then the yard became just as important.’’The couple agreed that the result of the renovation was beautiful and better than they would have envisaged themselves. “The benefit would be they do the renovation before we look to sell it and then we can make a decision about whether we want to stay there after the renovation or not.’’“It was three bedrooms plus a study and then one full bathroom and a powder room,’’ Georgia said.Downstairs had a double lock up garage and it was already enclosed as a garage with timber slats, and a full structural slab already in place. Neale Whittaker transformed this area in the renovation.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus16 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market16 hours ago When they bought it the appealed because of the ability to build in underneath and it had a good back deck and swimming pool and was close to the train station.With the arrival of their twins sons, John said they started to realise the house wasn’t big enough for them anymore.“We had only ever imaged having four people, here, two adults and two kids, so then it was the decision was maybe we don’t do the renovation ourselves and we sell it as. The market has moved and it’s a growing area. That’s when the show came along and we thought that is exactly the decision we were trying to make. John and Georgia Bilad at their renovated Corinda home.WHEN John and Georgia Bilad bought their Corinda home they always thought it would be great for future renovation and would grow as their family did.The couple were expecting their daughter Madeleine when they moved in, but the arrival of twin sons about 18 months later saw them fast track their desire to expand their living quarters.John didn’t like the idea of moving so hoped a speedy renovation on the Lifestyle Channel’s, Love It Or List It, would achieve the space they needed for their fast growing family.But Georgia had different ideas and hoped that John could be convinced they could find a different home that had what they really needed — more outdoor space. Unfortunately though it was the perfect house on too small a block of land.“It’s a beautiful home it is a beautiful area, they have done an amazing job on the renovation,’’ Georgia said.“What they did inside was just amazing.’’The house was transformed into a five-bedroom home. Two bedrooms were added downstairs as well as a bathroom and another living space.An upstairs study was used to put in internal stairs and a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite for one of the back bedrooms. This is how the dining area looks now. The downstairs area before the renovation. Neale Whittaker helped deliver an amazing renovation for the couple, but Andrew Winter showed them they could buy what they were after.The home has not been listed for sale yet, the couple are building a carport out the front and hope to have it on the market next year.“It’s a hard thing when someone designs a home with you specifically in mind,’’ Georgia said of appearing on the show.“I think that was part of it, it is definitely to our taste and our style, it’s beautifully done, so it’s very hard to go ‘oh thanks, but no thanks’,’’ she said. The bedroom before the renovation. This part of the downstairs was converted into a bathroom. “But for me it is still one of those things as beautiful as the house is itself it still doesn’t really fix the challenge that I have around lack of yard and that space to grow into.’’Tune in to Lifestyle on Wednesday October 24 at 8.30pm, as a New South Wales couple Isaac and Renee decide whether to love or list their Sutherland Shire home of six years.last_img read more

first_img Sharing is caring! LocalNews Loubiere teenager fined $2700.00 for possession of cannabis and cocaine by: – September 19, 2011 Share Share Tweetcenter_img Photo credit: lazytechguys.comNineteen year old Evans Charles of Loubiere was this morning fined $2700.00 on two charges of possession of Cannabis and possession of Cocaine by Magistrate Evelina Baptiste at the Magistrate’s Court in Roseau.According to the facts presented to the Court by Police Prosecutor Sergeant Nicholas Bruno, the Defendant and two others were seen on the top porch of Francis Enterprises on Friday 16th September, 2011 at about 9:30pm when Constable Yankey B and other officers of the Drug Squad Task Force were on patrol.Constable Yankey B informed the Defendant that they were going to be searched for drugs and ammunition. While conducting the search on Mr Charles, the police officer found a clear ziploc plastic bag containing what appeared to be cannabis and asked him about his findings; to which he replied ‘a little weed I have my friend that give it to me.’Constable Yankey B continued his search and found two straws and contents which appeared to be cocaine. He again questioned the Defendant about his findings but the Defendant explained that the substance did not belong to him and that his friend had given it to him when he saw the officers approaching.The Defendant was transported to the Police Headquarters in Roseau where the contents were placed into evidence bags which he signed.Mr Charles offered no objection to the facts read by the Police Prosecutor when asked by Magistrate Baptiste.In making a plea in mitigation for himself, Mr Charles told the Court, “I admit that I had the cocaine on me. I admit that I smoke marijuana. I will not do it again.”Magistrate Baptiste told the Defendant that she hoped he was speaking the truth for the benefit of himself and his community.In sentencing the Defendant, Magistrate Baptiste told him that she had considered the fact that this is his first offence and that he pleaded guilty, however she must also consider the aggravating factors in this matter.The aggravating factors being the prevalence of this type of offenses and the destructive nature of the abuse of these kinds of drugs. She also lamented the fact that the prevalence of these offenses are affecting the fabric of society; how we behave and how we conduct ourselves.Magistrate Baptiste also told Mr Charles, while he claims that the cocaine did not belong to him this is not significant, as a responsible person would ask to see what he is being given before accepting it and therefore he must accept responsibility for his bad action.On the charge of possession of Cannabis he was sentenced to pay the sum of $700.00 on or before the 28th day of February, 2012 or in default spend five months imprisonment, and on the charge of possession of cocaine he was sentenced to pay the sum of $2000.00 on or before the said 28th day of February, 2012 or in default spend six months imprisonment.Dominica Vibes News 6 Views   no discussions Sharelast_img read more

Tremors recorded at Negros’ Kanlaon Volcano

first_imgA view of Mt. Kanlaaon from Barangay Mansilingan, Bacolod City on Monday, June 22. ARCHIE ALIPALO/PN “Activity at the vent consisted of moderate emission of white steam-laden plumes that rose 200 meters before drifting southwest. Sulfur dioxide emission was measured at an average of 438 tonnes/day on 13 June 2020,” said Phivolcs. In an advisory on Monday morning, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said 136 volcano-tectonic earthquakes – with the strongest one at Magnitude 4.7 – were recorded in the volcano’s western flank within a 24-hour period. Four of the earthquakes that happened at 1:01 a.m., 1:04 a.m., 1:34 a.m., and 2:06 a.m. were recorded by the Philippine Seismic Network at magnitudes that range from 3.2 to 4.7. “Ground deformation data from continuous GPS (global positioning system) measurements indicate a slight deflation of the lower and mid slopes since January 2020. Short-term electronic tilt monitoring on the southeastern flanks recorded continuing deflation on the lower slopes but inflation on the mid slopes since April 2020,” it added. The said earthquakes were felt at Intensities II to V in La Carlota City and Bago City, Negros Occidental and Canlaon City, Negros Oriental. It added that civil aviation authorities must also advise pilots to avoid flying close to the volcano’s summit as ejecta or materials spewed from any sudden phreatic eruption poses aviation risks.center_img The state volcanology bureau reminded the public to heed the prohibition against entry within the four-kilometer radius of the volcano as it is currently abnormal condition and has entered a period of unrest. MANILA – State volcanologists are keeping a close watch on Kanlaon Volcano in Negros Island after a series of earthquakes was recorded on its western lower flanks. “The local government units and the public are strongly reminded that entry into the 4-kilometer radius Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ) must be strictly prohibited due to the further possibilities of sudden and hazardous steam-driven or phreatic eruptions,” Phivolcs said.

Community Shield: Aubameyang lives up to his rating, scores for Arsenal against Liverpool

first_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Arsenal’s captain and talisman, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is on fire as he netted Arsenal’s first goal against Liverpool in the ongoing Community Shield final. The Gabonese scored in the 12th minute to keep Arsenal in the right frame for the match. A moment of magic from Aubameyang remains the difference so far. Liverpool started off sloppily, but grew into it as the half wore on. Arsenal have been well organised and are a threat going forward with Bukayo Saka particularly impressive. Kieran Tierney has been getting forward well too. Liverpool might look to the likes of Naby Keita or Takumi Minamino to just add a bit of creativity to the midfield. They have the ability to break through the lines and unpick the opposition. It has been a really good game. Liverpool have dominated possession without really creating any chances. Arsenal have looked good on the counter. Aubameyang has picked up where he left off at the end of last season, with a really good finish. It is good from Arteta. Arsenal are deep so Salah and Mane can’t get into the pockets of space. When you have a front three like the Gunners they are dangerous. For the first time in a while, there is an air of optimism around Arsenal going into the new season. Some of that is to do with the afterglow of a 14th FA Cup triumph, achieved at the expense of London rivals Chelsea. read also:Arsenal Talisman Aubameyang shows off Supercars collection That, though, is only superficial; many are sensible enough to understand a trophy at the end of a disappointing league season only papers over cracks at best. No, the real source of excitement is the presence of Mikel Arteta at the helm and what that represents: a return to lofty standards, but also the sense of direction and deliberation he seems to exude. The signing of Brazilian defender Gabriel Magalhaes, which by all accounts is imminent, means the heart of the Gunners’ defence is sorted for many years to come.

EPL: Red Hot Foxes invade Villa

first_imgRelatedPosts Runarsson joins Arsenal on four-year deal Martinez completes £20m Aston Villa move Grealish signs new five-year Aston Villa deal Aston Villa vs. Leicester CityVenue: Villa ParkKick off: 3PMLeicester City will be looking for their eighth straight win in the Premier League when they travel to Villa Park to face Aston Villa this afternoon.A stunning run of form has seen the Foxes rise into second position in the table, while Villa occupy 16th spot having collected 15 points from their 16 league outings during the 2019-20 campaign.Four wins, three draws and eight defeats – that is how Villa have performed during their first 15 matches of the 2019-20 Premier League season.A total of 15 points have left them in 16th spot in the table, just one point clear of the relegation zone heading into this weekend’s fixtures.Only the bottom three teams – Everton, Norwich City and Watford – have lost more times in the Premier League than Villa this season, but Dean Smith’s side have won the same number of matches as Arsenal.The promoted club picked up an impressive 2-2 draw against Manchester United last weekend but could not build on that result during the week as they suffered a 2-1 loss at Chelsea.The performance at Stamford Bridge was strong, though, and Villa are now heading into a run of matches which will see them play four times at home in their next five, including a clash with Liverpool in the EFL Cup, where the Reds will name a shadow side to their involvement in the Club World Cup.Villa have not actually beaten Leicester in the Premier League since December 2014, although the two teams shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw when they last locked horns at Villa Park in January 2016.Leicester continued their stunning run of form with a 2-0 win over Watford on Wednesday night. The Foxes have now been victorious in their last eight matches in all competitions, seven of which have been in the league.Eleven wins and two draws from 15 matches have brought them 35 points, leaving them three points clear of third-placed Manchester City and six ahead of Chelsea in fourth.Leicester announced on Friday that head coach Brendan Rodgers had signed a new contract at the King Power Stadium until the summer of 2025 amid reports of interest from Arsenal.Rodgers’s side are 12 points clear of fifth-placed Wolverhampton Wanderers, showing that they are in a wonderful position to secure a top-four finish come the end of the 2019-20 campaign.The gap to leaders Liverpool is eight points, though, and it is difficult to envisage a title challenge at this point.Jamie Vardy was stunning during Leicester’s 2015-16 Premier League triumph, and the 32-year-old is enjoying another remarkable campaign.He has scored in each of his last seven league outings, with his record standing at 14 in 15 league matches during the current season.Leicester’s success has also been built on a strong defensive unit, though, with the Foxes conceding just nine times in their 15 matches, which is comfortably the best record in the division. Aston Villa possible XI: Heaton, Guilbert, Engels, Mings, Targett, McGinn, Luiz, Hourihane, El Ghazi, Wesley, Grealish.Leicester City possible XI: Schmeichel, Ricardo, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell, Ndidi, Barnes, Maddison, Tielemans, Perez, Vardy.Tags: Aston VillaDean Smithlast_img read more
