I have bought an inner city block of land 12.5m wide x 38m long with the aim of building a house and living in it.
I plan to spend at least $450K on the house + another 60K for a pool out the back.
What is the best way to go with regard to getting the house designed and built?
1. Go to a pre-designed home builder e.g. Simonds, Boutique homes etc.
2. Tender to an independent builder with plans drawing up by a draftsman.
3. Go to an architect and then tender out.
