Based on her best selling book Building Home – The 5 Step Journey to Building your Best Lifestyle, her online course delivers her revolutionary 5 step process for planning to build a new home in Australia today. It’s been designed to take away the fear, confusion and frustration that can often go hand in hand with choosing to build.

As Natalie says, ‘Building a home doesn’t take a dream, it takes a plan… and this is the plan you need to live the dream’. Natalie and her team operate on a very simple yet profound philosophy that ‘The happiest of families aren’t the ones who have the best of everything, but they are the ones who make the best of everything they have’. Build In Oz supports this philosophy by showing families how to spend their budget on the areas of their home that will bring them the most happiness regardless of whether their budget is big or small.
Her game changing planning process is also helping Australian property investors take advantage of the financial benefits of building new and helping them create an investment that will deliver them the best returns.
