The person in question really did give the argument of needing to live there first "So you can pick out which drapes to buy." No misunderstanding on my part. It…

Yeah, I've already bought a block of land there and have been constantly reading from yourhome.gov.au and drafting a ton of ridiculously novice plans and documents to give to an…

But there is such a thing as deliberately spreading misinformation. And doing so to try and steer someone's actions.
Well, I wouldn't have to interact with that person any more. And…

A relative. They don't live on the island though.

Thanks hey.
The bad advice I've been given. Do you think it might be intentional?
To try and get me to move to the island before building?

Hi, how are you guys?
Yeah, I've been given a TON of advice of building a home, and a lot of it seems a bit suspicious. Seems like it's someone purposefully…

"Volume Project Builders" Do they exist?

What? No, that's not my block of land. That was on the Metricon site.

I found this here:

Looks like a completely new measurement I've not seen before. lol
I don't understand why they don't just use squared metres and save everyone…

Here, I'll go get the page.
Here it is. The very top one.

They list 25 under "Total area (sq)".
So just "square". Hmm... I don't know.

Oh, alright, I'll make sure to ask Kitome and get a price tag with all the inclusions and what not.
Thanks, Uni.

Wisdom homes start at $275k and $680k for a ready build home.
Holy hell.
That's WAY beyond what I can afford.

Yeah, it might be interesting to visit a display village.
How crowded are they usually? It may not be a good idea currently. You know, with the virus and all.

26 d26 dMoromillas RadecMoromillas Radec posted:

Ah, so those are volume project builders? Like Metricon? Thanks, hey. I would never have guessed just by looking at their website.
I found a list of houses on the Metricon…

I don't know if it's the same for others. But when I put "volume project builders" into a search, nothing comes up.
Builders come up, yes, but nothing to indicate that…

Is it worth getting an architect for an 80 square metre home, though? Or is an architect just for the rich and their mansions?
Will they even bother with an 80…

Even traditional builders. There's no site where they're all reviewed.
We're all just flying blind here.

Looked great. But how long do they last? There isn't anything online about this. Nothing that compares the two.
See, this is why I need to find some sort of consultant…

Ah, geez. So they might be significantly lower quality then. They might just be a temporary house.

27 d27 dMoromillas RadecMoromillas Radec posted:

Wait, why would it be an interesting option? They're not really the traditional home designers that I'm looking for?

27 d27 dMoromillas RadecMoromillas Radec posted:

Will do.
They might even have better designs that fit my wish list. They've most likely got significantly more experience than me at designing after all.

27 d27 dMoromillas RadecMoromillas Radec posted:

Yeah, or a building designer.
Would kitome be worth making an appointment with? Do they sort of do what I'm looking for?
They do mention on their website that they do design…

Reading their blurbs on the website, it almost seems too good to be true.
Have you built with them before? How much of my requirements do you think they would fit?

I bought some land on Russell Island. lol It's a nice place. I got a nice block of land too.

Oh yeah, I suppose you do have a point there. If I end up having a large family, the mudroom could very well be filled to the brim.

The mudroom is kind of large, isn't it? Any ideas how to shrink it down?

At least, after the house extension, the kitchen and living room will -- sort of -- be in the centre of the northern wall.
