KDR Metricon Liberty - Hampshire 45 QLD

Building price increases
Well what I've taken from this thread is that I'm screwed.

Building inspection stages
Your list is woefully inadequate
Who will check your site drainage and relationship of slab levels in relation to ground?
Who will check your contract adjustments at the end?
Put together this little tv unit for the kids retreat, so good that the kiddos have their own little area to chill out

You need to look at the council guidelines for setbacks which are something like Dwelling Houses 4A Section 2 and have a read. I think you'd be able to use the church like…

Also, did you do any…
