We want to rebuild after the 2009 bush fires in the Kinglake area (Victoria).
We have gone through a battle with the council, BAL-inspectors, building regulations, building inspectors, etc.
Now it seems that we are going to receive a planning consent to start building our new house.
After looking for a building company it came clear to us that building a house won't be cheap.
Most likely we have been in contact with the wrong people.
If you have been able to rebuild to BAL-40 specs on a budget then we would like to hear from you!
We are looking for a simple but thermal efficient home.
All ideas, opinions are welcome!
Any builders you can recommend who can do everything from concept to completion?
Thank you very much in advance for your advice.
