Heya.. i'm new to this but am looking for advice.. my partner and I recently purchased some land in metro Adelaide (Western Suburbs - Charles Sturt Council) which is 475sqm, approx 16 w and 28 d, not a perfect rectangular block but a reasonable size.
Our current dilemma - to build one or two story.
a 3 bedroom house with at least 2 living areas (ie one living, one home theatre)
a reasonable space in the yard that doesn't appear to be claustrophobic
We have been advised that the double garage would be up against the West fence, there is a req for the east side of the house to be set back at least 2m, and the front of the house has min 5.5m set back albeit I've been advised we may be able to reduce this to 4.5 - 5m.
Preference is to have a one story due to significant cost savings, however if we go 2 story, I need main bedroom with ensuite and WIR in addition to a small study (aka nursery) downstairs as I use a walking stick and don't want major rooms upstairs.
Any advice / recommendations for a builder who may be able to help without us having to take out a second mortgage
