The Founders

James and Louise Laird - Renovate Me Nelson

Established in 2012 by husband and wife, James and Louise, Renovate Me is the brain-child of the duo and a true family run local business. James’ 20 year experience in the building industry started during his apprentice days in Queenstown. Louise’s years of education and work gave her solid knowledge and skills in systems and management.

This has built a strong business pairing with huge amounts of passion and commitment.

The Story

James and Louise had huge success renovating their own home, which signalled the start of an appetite for home renovations. They noticed a shortage of appealing land, and rising costs of building new houses, meaning that more people were wanting to renovate. Renovate Me was born and together have spent the best part of 10 years renovating homes across the Nelson region.
