Front setback- is it worth modifying?

I'd definitely get the DA reapproved.
An extra metre in the backyard is far better.
Cheaper front driveway. It will pay for itself if your going to pay for another submission.

I think your unrealistic at 350k. Perhaps a prefab builder? Doubt even they could build and erect the modules for less than 500k.

Massive job. The boys took nearly a day to do it. Even if I had provisioned it, the cost would have worked out the same getting the fittings connected.
