I have a property 300mtr from wtr front. If it was riased it would have water views. Is raising a house worth it just to get water views. Its probably worth 210ish now, and houses with bay views built in down stairs are around $380-$400, ones just on poles around $350-$360. So what kinda cost is involved here; a. Just to put it up on steel poles. b. To raise it and build under neath. Im sure its weight bearing, so would I have to put on a tin roof (tiles now)? How high can it be raised off the ground (qld)?
