Let the Blogging begin!

Our story began about 8 months ago when my husband and I made the decision to sell our house and buy a new one closer to the beach. For some strange reason our Real Estate agent suggested we could build and that was it. A Week later our house was sold and we had put a deposit on our small little patch of paradise.

So far it has been a bit of a slow process. After a few false alarms choosing a project home with one of the many builders out there, we finally settled on a smaller, new company called One Three Designer Homes. We had a design drawn up for us. Submitted our plans to council, got them back all approved, handed over some cash and we are now at the point of waiting for our construction certificate.

This is where our Blog begins. Hopefully days away from getting the final approval to start work on our big patch of grass.


  1. Hi, Megan and Dan

    We are building with One Three in Shell Cove as well. We did a Google search for complaints against them and discovered your blog. Our search was prompted by continuing problems and it appears your experience resembles ours. Glad to hear your journey is over – it looks like we have a long way to go. Wish we had found your blog before we signed the contract!

    We have been inspired us to start our own blog. Like you we are first timers at this medium, which I have found a great way to vent. I think everybody else is sick of hearing me complain!

  2. Hi Megan & Dan
    I am also building with One Three in WoonoA. I just wanted to respond to say that my journey has been wonderful with them. I'm just building a small single storey home but i am so happy with them. At this stage i really couldnt fault them although i am only a brick stage. Hope it continues. How does your house look now that it is finished??
