Building First Home

G'day all

First time posting and looking to extract some of your knowledge :p and I hope this post is in the right category.

I'm looking to build a house, and the cost of the build will be approx. 500k.

A few questions below -

What's the process of building a house?
How much cash/deposit do I need to make this happen? (I currently have 10%)
Will the bank lend me that much?
Apart from LMI and Stamp Duty, do I need extra cash for anything else?

Appreciate your time

I'm not saying you won't get useful answers here on somersoft, but I think you'll find a lot of really helpful in-depth answers over at the homeone forum.
You'll also see a lot of members detailing their build process, which can give you a very useful heads-up.
