If you have the right permits etc you could build yourself a nice house for 300-400k. We were thinking of building in the future another house on our property but gotta still look at what the city allows etc

The houses around you Singh (including yours) are they built using bricks?

Brick, cement, stucco etc

Good, good, good. For some peculiar reason I had it in my head most houses are made of wood out there???

All the framwork and what not is 99% of the time wood (unless you use sheet metal stuff which is not at strong as wood) and then exterior would be brick, stucco etc. The base And foundations of the house is cement.

When you've seen builds, did they do the brickwork first, and then the inside. Or did they start the interior first and then wrap it up in bricks after?

Thanks for that! Looks like a timber frame, which can then be wrapped up in brick afterwards! Hmmmm. I suspected as much.

I don't think she'll use brick here though. Doesn't look like she's got the footings for it?  Keep the pics coming if you don't mind. Thanks again!!

Yea wood frames usually go up first and then people have the option of brick, stucco, stone etc for exterior.
