Build

Dear Home Building Enthusiast,

Well, we're almost at the end of the year and what a year it has been!

Australia, and the world in general, has been through a lot this year and now is the time to kick back and enjoy a break with friends and family, and maybe a little bit of interstate travel to top it all off.

While the pandemic has hit economies hard, the construction industry looks like it might be turning a corner and returning to some level of prosperity. Loan approvals and an increase in detached dwelling approvals have been welcomed by industry experts.

In this newsletter, we look at what these figures mean for the housing industry and explore related factors including the things that turn people off house-hunting, how to properly deal with old heater removals, and how DIY broke some people's hearts (and bank balance!) during lockdown.

Lastly, we at Build would like to wish all our readers and subscribers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

We'll see you all in 2021!
