Learn more about the benefits of being an Owner/Builder and the process involved
As well as saving thousands of dollars, there are many benefits in being an owner/builder.

•  Be in control of the result - don't be told you have to settle for less  •

•  Build the house YOU want - be limited only by your imagination (and budget)  •

•  Enjoy the flexibility to make last minute changes  •

•  Use your own preferred tradesmen, friends/family  •

•  No waiting time - build to suit YOUR schedule  •

Most states in Australia require you to hold an owner/builder's permit whenever you undertake a construction project on your property, that exceeds their cost threshold.

Acquiring a permit is a simple process, involving an application fee and normally a short course - which can be completed online at your own pace.
