Hi Barlow, I didn't really get many answers on my questions but I was able to find out a lot from the Facebook Group. I suggest joining the group if you are a resident or owner in Saltwater Coast. It really gives you an insight into the community. My home is a few months off being complete, so I wil...

Hi D.LAM, It depends on the state you live in and the time you signed your contract. I can shed some light on the Victorian Grants and how they work having gone through it recently myself. First Home Owner Grant: If you are building through a builder usually the FHOG will be credited at one of the s...

My Process was: - Call SRO, explain our situation, they informed us to put our story and evidence into an e-mail - Created e-mail and sent to SRO (generic e-mail on website) - Waited months - Received e-mail from assessor asking for specific evidence and e-mails - Assessor asked how much time we req...

Hi Wild, You would definitely have a case for an extension. You would have to choose out of the two options above though. Either apply for it now or apply for it once the build is finished (I would wait till the builds finished just in case you have any other issues) Also seems stiff that they held ...

I'm building in Victoria > Point Cook through Henley, Not far off pouring a slab I believe. So just to clarify, reading your comments above... Is your opinion on Independent Building Inspectors that you don't recommend them because they aren't engineers (or they aren't required to have that training...

So your saying that there needs to be better regulations around building/surveying/design & engineering. The whole industry needs a revamp, sure. But as most on these forums are looking to build now, with the current building climate and current regulations what do you suggest they do to ensure ...

Actually it was more like 7-8 months because we still had a bit of time left in our period. If you are building a Single Story home you should be okay with 8 months, Double Story and you are starting to push it, but it is still possible. I would definitely tell your site supervisor (when you get one...

Hi StructuralBIMGuy, Can you give us a quick run down or list of who you would engage if you were building a house and at what stages of the build? Maybe include examples of companies who do the work you are suggesting? And if you understand the building codes of different states break it up into a ...

No worries, I know how hard it is to get information around this topic and how confusing it can be. Yes building in Victoria, It wasn't too difficult but it did take quite a long time (which when you are on the clock isn't fun). And it was difficult to get in touch with the right people at the SRO i...

Hi, I am engaging Darbecca to do certain stages of our build with Henley. The stages I chose and why are: - Pre-Slab (Its the foundation of your home, you want it to be correct and to engineers specifications) - Frame/Slab (Again, backbone to your house structurally) - Pre-Plaster (As mentioned I th...

Wow, 4 builds, I don't think I can handle another one for a while and we haven't even started building yet haha! I think the next couple we will try and renovate for investments. Who are the builders you have used each time? and a summary of your experiences with each? Also thank you for the offer, ...

How much is land around there now if you don’t mind me asking? I love that area. Always loved sanctuary lakes and salt water. 2 of my favourite places. When we were thinking of buying land their it was at $600,000 the seller wanted for it. But that was private. We didn’t think it was worth that muc...
