Owner Builder Vs Registered Builder

When you're building a new home or planning a big renovation, there's no shortage of decisions to make. One of the first big choices is deciding whether to become an owner builder or hire a registered builder.

Got some trade skills? Looking to save on construction costs? The owner builder route might be calling your name but before you dive in, it's essential to consider this option carefully.

As an owner builder, you're the boss of the entire project. You'll need to know building codes, ensure on-site safety, and keep track of mandatory inspections. It's a big responsibility and the buck stops with you!

But it's possible! In fact, over 40,000 brave Australians decide to become Owner Builders every year. Whether it be a new build, an extension or a renovation. It's because owner building gives you 1) control over the build 2) the opportunity to save money and 3) the flexibility to do it over time.

Building your home as an Owner Builder is a HUGE achievement and brings an incredible sense of pride but it also comes with its fair share of risks. So do yourself a favour and take time to explore the information on this site! It might just be a game-changer!
