Hi All, I used to have extremely helpful and friendly answers on this forum. Therefore I will annoy you with one more question which I am desperately trying to resolve. Short story: My younger brother died oversees :-( and I am the only descendant. So I've brought my parents to Australia (legally of course, paid 110.000$) and now I need to provide some accommodation for them. We need one bedroom and one bathroom for them even in our own house. 3 options are available: 1. Granny flat approximately for 100k 2. House extension approximately for 100k 3. Garage conversion - price ? Unfortunately after 110k rip-off I don't have any serious money and after careful consideration we decided to investigate 3rd option. I am completely new to that business and I've opened few web-sites and found some rough cost estimates for example: Approval Pricing & Process Sydney NSW | Garage Conversion | Garage Conversion - 8380$ This looks to me as extremely expensive fee just for approval. Am I right? Or this is common price and I should suck it? Can someone recommend me any proper way to approach this problem or recommend proper builder to deal with in Western Sydney? I am really scared by all this stories about dodgy builders. I would really appreciate any help and any way to reduce the total amount. Thank you very much in advance.
