How’s your outdoor area? I’ve met Charlie a couple of times one of my close friends a fellow Yogie Anna’s lovely husband Tim works with him but I haven’t really had the opportunity to back Charlie into a corner at a social function and start going on about my dog ruined, crappy backyard so getting him on NHM- I GOT HIM FROM MY MUMMA seemed like a perfect idea. Charlie is on the box at the moment in the latest Selling Houses Australia series but if you’d like to get him over to your place you can find him daily at Inspired Exteriors.
Here are some of the things we talked to Charlie about, click the link below for the NHM-I GOT IT FROM MY MUMMA, Outdoor Renovations show.

Is it worth investing in a fence?

Can be expensive. Lots of people love them because it creates a nice common area you can enjoy with your friends.
Consider do you need the fire pit or could you just create the same nice common area without one.
Go for a cheaper option - Mel’s partner Mick acquired a drum from inside an old washing machine and mounted it on bricks and it works perfectly.
Train them to do their business in a certain part of the backyard
Contain them in their own space in one part of the yard or get a cat
From a ‘real estate’ point of view they’re viewed as one of the worst investments you can make in a house however Charlie says he loves his pool and his kids use it all the time so he doesn’t believe it.
