Building A New House
Jul 19, 2015 9:19 pm
Been around reading a lot (learning)
Thought I share and get feedback
We have sign with homestead 20/12/14 and still at council (13weeks) issues with set back they want 1.5m from both sides (16m frontage that leaves us 13m to build a large 4 bed home)
We are in Broadview (in a character zone) 827m2
Working with the council the last sticking point is that We want to build on the boundary as our two neighbours has (& 7 people on our little bit of road has)
But they don't, we've got a private planner fight it for us ( he's thinks it's stupid as well)
This is my neighbour
We are knocking down in August with no build time or council approval
Now 90 days (contract signed) is up on the 17/8/2015 homestead said its not an issue!
Custom design 4 bedder
The drop ceiling next to kitchen is a study area
We are thinking of getting a interior designer on board to make it perfect (does that make it a designer house?) but it's 12k ....... ?
Please let me know your thought / comments
Fellow homestead please share
Thanks for reading

That's a good find with the blocks. I like how you've got a fair bit of storage in your plan, as that can really help a house.
The front windows look a bit unusual - are going for a heritage appearance with the two narrow windows to appear as if it a single room when looking from the outside? That's quite a clever way of matching the scale of an older style. It'd be interesting to see how that turns out when done.
I'd be a bit careful of natural light levels, especially in the kitchen area, as the windows all seem quite distant. It's interesting how fashion changes, and we're going back from open-plan back into having separate kitchens again.

Good score with the blocks that's a handy saving, I saw your plan before but it has disappeared now? How did you go with council?

Looks like the perfect spot to build a house! There is something nice about the empty site, though I do need to keep telling myself it's moving forward to spend nearly $10k to go from having a house that could be lived in to nothing.

Looks awesome coffeemad! Love how all the bedrooms are grouped together with the activity room and bathroom in the centre.
