I'd joined this form earlier this year but that was as far as I got until someone reminded me that this form was here.
We are a family of 5 (three children - One almost 15, one almost 12 and the youngest is 7). We are just under 5 years away from looking to do a knock down /rebuild. We are currently concentrating on paying off our car loan (which will be paid of by mid next year) and then cutting down our mortgage as much as we can before we look at doing the build. This will be our forever home so want to make sure it has all that we need and we feel we are in a perfect location (have been here for over 15 years) as it's close to schools, public transport and local shopping centers.
Our land is 805 square metres (24.1 frontage) but we plan to sell off part of the land, keep 16 metre frontage and then sell off an 8 which will allow us to have extra money for the build but give us still a decent sized house (looking at at least 4 bedrooms) and looking at doing a custom build.
Not sure if it's okay to share but I have also created a facebook group for those in Adelaide if anyone wants to join. I sometimes forget to go on other sites but I'm on facebook alot so it is there if anyone would like to join in on both here and facebook
Hubby and myself will obviously be doing lots of research both here and elsewhere as we are both new at building but looks to be an exciting time ahead and we hope that the next few years don't pass too slowly so that we can get started hehe
Thanks for reading
