Building Your Own Home

Building Your Own Home by George Wilkie & Stuart Arden


A Comprehensive Guide for Australian Owner Builders.
Second Edition.
Revised and Updated for GST.

This complete guide to building your own home covers every step of the process. The book tells you how to select land, and gives you design guidelines, outlines on the roles of professional consultants and the workings of control authorities, advice on preparing working drawings, a who's who of subcontracting and supply industries, and detailed drawings showing how all the components are assembled to achieve the home of your dreams.

This revised and updated edition includes sections dealing with new materials and systems. It also covers the impact of the Goods and Services Tax, a fundamental change to the industry that makes owner building even more attractive than previously: unlike all paid labour, the owner builder's personal labour is GST-free.
