Even though I planned to buy a second-hand home and move it to the land, I still need to get the local approval to place the house on it. And the following process still has to be followed:
1. Drawings for the house
2. Engineer’s Structural report
3. Energy efficiency report
4. Need to lodge the documents to the council.
I tried to get the estimated cost for the removable home and was told it was impossible to get the estimated total cost up front but there is a rule of thumb that can be applied to give me a guide as to what to expect. The home mover recommends adding 50% of the delivered and re-stumped price on top to arrive at a reasonable allowance for completion of a house of average condition and quality.
Eg. This house is priced at $160,000 delivered and re-stumped included, add 50 to 70% (i.e. $80,000) to arrive at $240,000 as the total estimated cost including the house, delivery, and completion ready to move in. It really depends on the condition of the house this house alone could possibly cost well over $300k to complete.
Sorry old girl you cost too much. I’ll look for a better alternative.
Before I begin I’d like to start with a quote from Lao Zi: “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”.
So this post is my very first step towards a journey I’m just about to embark on. I know it’s going to be epic and extremely challenging and I don’t know where it is going to take me but I know it’s gonna be awesome!
So today I’m shooting this video because I want to put it on tape and also I want to take all of you on this amazing adventure with me.
So what is it all about? A while back I posted on Facebook that I wanted to build a not-for-profit self-awareness retreat in Eyre Peninsula, South Australia. It’s about five and a half hours drive from Adelaide Airport.
Now I posted that a while back, but I didn’t really know how to start the journey and so today I decided it doesn’t really matter. Instead of sitting around waiting for something to fall on my lap, I’m gonna just start it anyway.
I have no idea where this is going to take me but stay tuned and find out.
I will shoot another video tomorrow and I will show you the whole process.

My challenge was to give a 7 minutes inspirational speech. It was my first time ever, and I nearly had a heart attack before I went up the stage. Public speaking was my biggest fear but fortunately, I never, ever shy away from any challenge or fear so I faced it head on. By saying that I got a lot of help from my wonderful friends, mentor and hubby and the speech was well received. I won the first two rounds and came third at Division level.
No trip to Vancouver this year, sorry to all my Canadian friends!
After each competition, people came up to me and asked if I could record my speech because they want to share it with their loved ones.
I was hesitant at first because I didn’t think it was good enough. But one day I overheard my hubby’s good mate Gary Vee saying “don’t be fancy” so here it is :)
