We have built several project homes with prominent NSW builders over the last 10 years and are now planning to build again. Unfortunately we are finding that the plans of builders willing to build in rural NSW are all the same (bedrooms mostly together, too small etc) with varying inclusions and at varying costs. We feel a bit disollusioned with the whole process. It doesn't seem as simple or as clear as it was only a few years ago.
We are now considering purchasing a kit home and owner building. I would like to hear from others who have chosen to owner build. In particular how much more it cost once you had purchased the kit home. Some have suggested double the price others have suggested triple it (if this is correct it seems a very expensive option).
I would also like to know about your experience good, bad or otherwise. So if you would like to share your experience I would appreciate it.
