Our plan is to build the Metkithome Forest 3 which we have changed slightly to be a 3 bed, 2 bath with laundry, open plan kitchen and lounge with a deck out the front (which will face toward the rear of the property. It is a beach house, so we are content with it being 100m2 for the moment.
I'll be asking lots of questions, and appreciate any answers, comments or suggestions.
The site will be cleared of vegetation as little as needed to comply with the environment overlay and as much as needed for the bushfire overlay. As it is in Venus Bay, both overlays applies.
After bushfire assessment we will apply for planning permission and septic at the same time.
Process starts with septic tank and drain field installation, then concrete slab, then the kit home on top, with a 3,000 litre water tank (only 2 people and it is a beach house).
We will try to do as much of this as the rules allows us to do, only using contractors for the parts that needs to be done by them, like plumbing and electrical.
So a really simple house.
Current question is where we can get a contour map of the site, is there a resource that does this at block level? Only ones I've seen so far has been too general - for the area.
Anyone done this and have any comments on the extra costs, the time needed, things we might have forgotten, etc? I've read with great interest the building of the PAAL Camden in WA and all the trials and tribulations.
