This is where the adventure/wild ride/challenges/memories/amazing-ness begins.
My (patient, amazing, supportive) partner, Steve and I are preparing to embark on our first home build together- a process that I hope to share with as many people as possible- where our experiences can hopefully make the journey for others like us a little bit clearer and easy to navigate!
We have gone about things in a slightly unconventional way- we signed on with a builder before we even had a block of land! In the end, the hope is that doing it this way will save us a lot of money and will afford us the time to get the most out of our savings.
We have bought a block of land about 45 minutes north of the Melbourne, in a place which feels like the country but is close enough for us to work in the city- our version of paradise. Yes it's scary, currently I have a lower bank balance than I have had since I was 15 (cue nervous rapid breathing) but above all else, it is so incredibly exciting!
So welcome to the ride, I can't wait to share our experience with you!
