live in copper coast area in south australia and hoping in the next 5 years to have atleast a block with a shed preferably house too and have a few options in mind based on the council requirements with blocks and sheds and was wondering which option is cheapest and would make more sense as dont earn a lot and would need to start small and work up.
1. find a block that already has a shed and get the shed problems sorted then slowly build house and another shed.
2. buy the cheapest house you can just for the sheds and get that sorted then work out wether to fix the house or knock down and rebuild.
3. (last plan) buy a completely vacant block and get approval for a house to be able to put shed there as council requires you to get house approval and have a house there before you can put shed up and then see how much it would cost to build to lockup stage and get the shed sorted and then slowly finish house.
all options would need to have at least a 1200m2 block
would local council allow a secondhand transportable house and also secondhand shed on a block if you were to get approval for them if they're structurally ok just needing lots work.
minimum is 10% for a deposit but obviously if you can come up with 20% or more for a deposit itd be better and theres much more hope.
thanks for any help and answers
started drawing up a few house plans that have got in mind just to have a think about and the one that will go with depends on the block and what will fit
