Property Ladder

Varje eftermiddag kommer jag hem en kvart in på repriseringen av ytterligare ett favoritprogram från England: Property Ladder med Sarah Beeny som programledare. I programmet (som går på TV8) får man följa vanliga glada amatörer som försöker tjäna pengar i renoveringsbranschen, genom att köpa skruttiga hus, renovera dem och sälja dem vidare.

Det är roligt att se hur engelsmännen resonerar kring det perfekta boendet: Det ska vara AGA-spis, "good sized bedrooms" och helst ett en suit-badrum till varje sovrum. För en engelsklärare som mig är det dessutom rena fortbildningen, då jag snappar upp nya bransch-ord varje dag: Belfast sink, bespoke kitchen, inglenook fireplace, sash windows...

Sarah Beeny är härligt "besserwissrig"gnäller alltid över att ingen lyssnar på hennes goda råd, att folk tänker mer med hjärtat än med hjärnan och att de inte är tillräckligt affärsmässiga när de renoverar hus de ändå bara ska sälja vidare. Sensmoralen i programmet är tydlig: Man ska akta sig för att ge sig på sådant man inte har erfarenhet av. 

Det roliga är att det så gott som alltid slutar med att amatörrenoverarna knäpper Sarah på näsan, säljer sina nyrenoverade objekt för massor med pengar och skrattar hela vägen till banken. Mycket underhållande TV!

  1. Lite kul ja.. då de egntligen skulle behöva bättre isolering, ordentlig luftkondition och tätare fönster..

    Må gott, Marie

  4. Åhh, jag gillar Sarah! Själv irriterar jag mig på att de flesta amatörer har noll koll...
    Många av renoveringsmetoder skulle knappast godkännas av en svensk besiktningsman. Hughhha säger jag som jobbar på ett byggföretag ;)

  5. Hmm, den branschen kanske man skulle ge sig på!!
    Ska öva lite här hemma först i sommar med fönster och fasadbyte! ;)

  7. Har missat det programmet helt!
    Jag älskar den typen av koncept.
    Just för att man lär sig med tiden.
    Så oavsett om man är glad amatör eller inte så kan man ge sig på projekt=))
