    This is a great video, just what i wanted to see! I want to build a home in the next few years and have no idea what the process involves. Thanks so much for posting :)

    can she just film show us and not talk as much like omfg no offence and I don't mean this to be rude but in all honesty it is a bit much because every time I click to a new part of the video low and behold there she is talking talking and talking. Im really sorry if this appears as a hate comment but maybe they will see this and think a bit, because I clicked on this video to watch a process of the building of a house as I want to be an interior designer but its a bit distracting. So sorry if this seems like a hate comment because I don't mean it that way its just my opinion and a suggestion.
    Really sorry if this seems rude and arrogant but I'm only 14 from New Zealand and I am just making a suggestion.

    I have just watched all of this series and I love your house! It was so much fun seeing the process from start to finish. We are beginning our building process, and are trying to decide on house plans. What is the square footage of your home? It looks like a great size, but not overwhelming- just perfect!

    Apparently these video are educational for students who want to learn how the house is built. It's honestly so helpful

  • Ryanna Avery

    I build houses for a living and it's crazy to see how different we build houses in the states compared to other places and the different timeframes it takes. When my subs are on task we can build a house in 90 days and that's from slab to CO.

    I love how flat your block is!! We're building as well in Sydney but the land isn't registered yet. Looks like ours is going to be so slopey! :/ I've been so excited for your building vlogs!

    • Catching Up With The Contes
      Catching Up With The Contes  2 years ago +1

      That's one of the worst things about building in a new estate when the land isn't developed yet and just buying off the map. We didn't know what it was going to be like in the last one we built and it sloped down so much at the back - we put in soon much fill to make it even. But then we could basically see into the neighbours yard! But congrats on deciding to build! I hope you enjoy the process and it goes smoothly! ox

    Amazing thank you for letting us into your house build journey. A big congratulations too on completing the build. May you and hubby make it a happy home.
    Perhaps you and hubby can do a video on saving up for a house, why you choose to build instead of buying.
    Looking forward to the rest of the series.

    I haven't seen all your house videos but any chance you can do a video where you include things that you wish were different or some things you would change? A lot of people who have built homes already always have lots of insight into what to watch out for and what they wish they could've added etc. Hindsight, you know. Anyway, how exciting for you both. I'm hoping to build by the end of the year! I hope we get approved for our loan. Please pray for us! We're so desperate!!! Damn Sydney prices!!!!

    • Catching Up With The Contes

    So exciting, the house always looks small at the slab stage, we we built our house we were so freaked out because we thought it was so small but as you now know it starts to look real size when it gets further along. Love the fact you vlogged everything. Thanks for sharing 😘
