And 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.

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.
