This is just a general query, maybe some of you have experience of building your own home and could read on and pass on some advice.
I am considering buying a plot of land in the Brisbane/Gold Coast area. I have seen a few for sale that look good but I have no idea what happens once I buy????? I want to build my own house (well, I want to get a good builder to build my house!).
How do I go about getting permission for this?
Should I only look for land with permission granted?
How long does it take to build a house?
How much does it cost to build a house?
I am looking at highset 5 bed/3 bath (2 en-suite) with double garage. I guess about 40sq split over 2 floors plus garage. I know this is vague but I'm just looking for an approximate cost.
I need to know if I can afford all this before I get the architects started on design - just kidding!
Any advice would be very much appreciated,
