Dominic and Marie Romeo are experienced and passionate renovators of important heritage properties that are under threat of decay and loss to the national estate. The Romeos have refurbished and brought back to life six significant properties, including one of the largest private houses ever built in Australia- Rupertswood, the birthplace of The Ashes, in Sunbury, Victoria.
What does it take to renovate remarkable mansions not once but six times over? In the case of the Romeos it is a drive to restore heritage properties to their rightful place in the national estate.
From stained-glass windows to entrance halls, wallpapers to walled gardens, The Constant Renovators showcases each of the Romeos' renovation projects, the history of the houses and what it took to restore them. It is full of handy tips for all home renovators, no matter how big or small their project. The wealth of photographs includes historical images showing properties in their original glory, 'before and after', during the renovation process and the stunning finished results.
