  1. Hi Guys, I am new to the forum & have been living in Mandurah for around 2 1/2 years now. We absolutely love it here & are about to lodge our PR. Once we have this we will be looking to build. I actually work for Ventura homes so naturally we feel building new was the way to go. Has anyone had this process of build new or buy established? Want to gain more information on buying land, building restrictions & site costs? The experiences we have had so far nobody ever explains this in enough detail & if anything we would feel more confused. Friends of ours actually brought some land to build & didnt know their exact site costs which ended up being far more then they had budgeted & now they cannot sell the block or afford the home design they want. Since arriving in WA I have built around 200 homes as a supervisor & recently got into the Design Consultancy side, I am more then happy to help anyone struggling to decide which way to go. I can give you advice on sites works costings, design options to maximize the block of land as well as time frames & any hidden factors no other consultants will explain in enough detail. Thanks, have a great day https://www.facebook.com/John-Barnes-New-Home-Design-Consultant-572218846279101/
