I read your whole blog in 2 days. I came across this while searching for someone built with metricon and if I can find useful information about their journey.

Could you pls. share some information on site cost as well? I am planning to do a knock down rebuild in eastern suburb, where I currently own a house.

There is bit of slope/fall (according to metricon sales person), but not too much approx. 1.5 mtrs.

This is going to be my first home in Australia so have no idea what it means.

Any information, if you can share will be good for me.

Hi PN,

Usually the price of building can be roughly broken down into 3 major parts:
1. Site costs
2. House with basic/standard inclusions
3. Upgrades

The site costs is everything else needed to prepare the site for the house to be built. This includes things like laying the house foundations/footings, any costs in getting equipment on site, site cleaning, connecting utilities to the site, temporary fencing etc.

So with a site fall, one of the site costs would be to provide excavation and retaining walls.

Then of course there is landscaping on top of all this.

Does this help?
