Discussing :: Building a low-medium budget Kitset house?


Building a low-medium budget Kitset house?

Has anyone recently done a kitset? What costs popped up that you weren't expecting and how much more than the actual kit did it set you back (ish)? Was it worth it in the end?

We're expecting around 10 K in consenting, 25 K for water/septic tanks and maybe another 15 for earthworks and landscaping. We will need to pay for construction and wiring but will get plumbing and any legal at cost through family. I see there is a list of things on that link that it doesn't include, but thought I'd check in with the know how of the sub for any general/useful knowledge. Thanks in advance.



It's better to consult with specialists. When I decided to build my own house I asked for help specialists from well-known and reliable buisling company Madison Park Homes and don't have any regrets. The build was finished exactly when promised. I just moved into my new house and can say it is perfect!
