The Most Educational Home Building Resource in Victoria

 

Here we provide our readers with answers to all the common (and not so common!) questions around building a home in the country.

 

Why do I need a soil test before building? We answer that. Should I build or buy a home? Yep, we help answer that too. What’s the best time of year to build a new home? Or what about The section 32 statement?

 

We are regularly adding new content to this library, so keep checking back to increase your knowledge and understanding on all things related to building a new country home.

 

Or, if you can’t find an answer to your question, reach out to us on 1800 01 05 09 or email us at [email protected] and one of our helpful consultants will happily attempt to answer you question!
