3. Research

My husband and I built our first home last year in Port Macquarie.  It was a very long 12 months as we built two townhouses and they were required to go through Council.   After a very exhausting but rewarding 12 months we finally got to move in.    One of the most important learnings from our build was ensuring you do your research from where you choose the location to spending alot of time in the planning phase.   If you are purchasing land I would chat to Newcastle local Council.  I have put together the top 5 questions you must ask Council if you are purchasing land here.  Don’t forget to get our 5 Affordable tips Free Download for building your new home here as well.
