Triplex Development – Introduction

A few years ago together with the misses, we bought an old house sitting on a decent parcel of land, enough to build three houses when the time came. You can further read about the purchase on our joint blog sonyaandtravis.com, “Buying a house and making a home”.

Well the time has now come to start developing, as a first time developer and builder, there will be a lot of learning and experiences which I will document and share, and hopefully it will be useful for others in the same situation.

Some information on the land;

  • 3×1 double brick house
  • Land area 911 metres squared
  • Approximately 18 x 50.3 metres
  • Zoned R20/R40
  • Purchased for $500k
