Richard has followed Lester’s lead and done some research about the affordability of moving an existing house onto one of the sections. He asked some neighbours, who have done just that.
Using their figures it would cost about $100,000 to buy a two bedroom house and have it moved onto piles with water tank, plumbing, roofing, exterior finishing and interior joinery done. A four bedroom house with the same would cost $230,000.

These figures don’t include greywater, power or phone because these will be included with each section. They also don’t include project management and interior painting because most of us are likely to do it ourselves.

He brought those figures to our meeting on Sunday night.
