We'll hopefully be owner building our second house after 10 years and hope that this is 'the one'.
Although our block is 619sqm, it has a frontage of only 11.7m and is around 53m long. I work from home as a graphic designer/printer so having a home office accessible from the outside was one of the main reasons for wanting to build from scratch. The house will also be 7km closer to the kids school from where we live at the moment so a saving of 28km per day when factoring drop off + pick up x 2.
Land was purchased last year. We tried to initially put a small double storey unit at the front to rent out and a larger 3 bedroom double storey unit at the back for us but despite 3 attempts, the council knocked it all back due to various reasons. So we said it's a sign for us to build 1 single storey house hence our journey began.
Below is what it looks like.
