Options for building

blue prints for a house with paint samples and a rulerThere are many different options available to the person who is thinking about building a house. You can choose how much involvement you have in the project, based on your experience and expertise.

Building a house can be broken down into the following stages, namely:

  • choosing a house design;
  • choosing land; and
  • choosing a builder.

Beware! The type of land you buy can sometimes limit your options for the design of your house. Also, the type of house design you choose may impact on your choice of builder. You will need to think about all three stages at the same time.

In this section we look at some of the issues involved - please select from the following links.
