Note from the House & Garden South Africa Editor-in-Chief, Piet Smedy.
I very recently purchased a new apartment. It is nothing fancy; in fact, it is quite the fixer-upper – which is, of course, a prospect that really excites me. Even though this is not my first renovation rodeo, I still find that there is a lot for me to learn about the process – especially with so many options available. no matter the size of your home makeover – from a quick refresher to a wall-bashing, ground-up build – if I can impart one hard-learned lesson: get the right person for the job. and getting the right person starts here. Personally, my copy of House & Garden Design Directory is falling apart; thumbed to death, ravaged by Post-It notes, dusty and crumpled from being dragged to and from site – but it goes everywhere with me and never fails to answer my need-to-know questions. When you are ready to start building your dream home, I hope it does the same for you.
