We have a 10 year old queenslander style house and we want to build in underneath. Our beautiful home is ready to go, it is full legal height and the slab is already down.
I have been told that we will have to get a draughtsman to draw up the plans and then a certifier to approve the plans.
What I need to know is how much work in involved in this? we have never done structural reno's before, we have only done bathrooms/laundry and cosmetic stuff. What is actually involved in building in this space? is it done with cladding? How does it work?
How much of this are we going to be able to do ourselves? It is a job for a builder or can we tackle the building in and internal walls ourselves? Obviously we would get professionals to do any and all electrial and plumbing.
Any advice is welcome!!
