To all of those who have been following my home building journey, welcome to my new thread!
I've decided to start a new thread and put the last two years behind me. My build permits have been issued at last and I'm looking forward to building my new house over the next 6-8 months.
To everyone else, hi I'm Dawn! I'm a 29 y.o woman building my first house.
I purchased land in stage 3 of the Ascot estate, Pakenham in July 2014. My land is 294m2 (10.5x28m). Titles for stage 3 were released February 2016, after a 10 month delay.
I'm building with a small custom builder that I engaged October 2014. I signed the building contract on the 15th of March 2016.
