hi my name is nick i used somersoft forum a while ago and found it really inforamative to read posts, i recently purchased property in dingley village melbourne after being out of market for 2 and a half years.(sold and rented due to wife having a baby) ouch i know. I now need some help now with procesess about going ahead with the build of a granny flat for my mother in law to live in. can anyone recommend me to any good and economical draftsman and building surveyors in melbourne or in the dingley vicinity and approximate costs i should be paying. i work in construction and was hoping to get some of the work done by connections i have met to cut down costs. is it possible to build this way. granny flat will be approx 50-60 sqm. does anyone know approx costs if going with the many companies that specialise in start to finish builds? what are your thoughts of me organising tradesman to do work and does anyone have any first hand experience or friends doing it this way. i hope my post is not too confusing. thank you for taking time to read my post and any help is very much appreciated. regards nick.
