Been following several threads on here for a while now & finally it's my time!
We have 2.2acres near Gawler, it's got a tiny 2 bedroom house on the block already, nicknamed the "shoebox" which my family of 4 moved into in January this year after selling our last house. We have to knock the shoebox down once the new house is up as per council approval. Looking forward to being able to look out my kitchen window & watch my new house go up.
We have also already built a "American barn" style shed to use as storage of furniture etc during the build. My husband is also very handy so he spends plenty of time in there
We've had our own plans drawn up by a draftsman & have taken them to 4 different builders for quotes. We have decided to go with a small, family owned boutique builder who I actually worked for for a couple of years. We always hoped to go with them but thought it would be naive to not compare their price with others. We feel comfortable going with these guys as I have seen 1st hand the pride they take in their work & really trust them. Well I hope they don't screw us over, the directors & site supervisor we at our wedding!
We have a meeting with the builder on Thursday to sign contracts
Anyway, thanks for reading & I will put some plans up shortly
