Are you aware that your build might have extra costs to meet the requirements of Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) assessment/report being obtained and being below a certain level to ensure building is less prone to bushfire loss.
These requirements monitored by the local council could add thousands of dollars to your build costs.

Assistance during bushfire recovery
Landgate Media release: Thursday, 14 January 2016
The State Government is providing assistance to property owners and South-West communities as they rebuild and recover from recent bushfires.
Lands Minister Terry Redman said Landgate was providing duplicate Certificates of Titles which were lost or damaged during the fires, at no cost to applicants and will assist with property ownership details if requested.
Landgate is also facilitating the re-pegging of property boundaries by re-establishing important infrastructure that provides location information.
"Due to the scale of the destruction, property boundaries may be unclear. South-West residents can be assured that Landgate will determine these to ensure the accurate placement of buildings and fences," Mr Redman said.
"Other information available through Landgate includes aerial photography to determine the location of roads and property addresses."
