    Hey guys,

    First time home buyer here so please bare with me.

    I'm looking at buying a block of land with a 15.7 m. lot frontage. Then it says home width requirement OMP to OMP is 11.8. What does this mean?

    Thanks in advance!

    OMP = Outer most point
    So the house can only be 11.8 Meters wide (outer most point to outer most point)
    Have you engaged a builder yet?

    Yes the house we are building requires a 12.5 m. frontage but is only acutally 10.8 m. wide so it sounds like it's fine then. I did Google OMP but I couldn't find out what it meant in relation to this and I was scared it had to do with where you have to put your house on the block. Thank you so much for your answer

    Yep it's fine, your builder would know this stuff as well
