The building boom is attracting a large number of new people to Mosgiel but the locals are not being left out.
Shelley Williams-Bennett and her husband Jamie Bennett are building a four-bedroom home in the Heathfield subdivision in the town.
Mrs Williams-Bennett said she had lived in Mosgiel before deciding to build, but wanted to find a bigger home to accommodate Jamie's son Kayden (7) and her daughter Taneka (8).
The couple began looking to buy a four-bedroom home in November last year in either Fairfield or Mosgiel, but could not find anything suitable and decided to build.
The family wanted to stay in the Mosgiel area because it had a good climate.
''We have got everything out here that we need.''
She said it was not difficult to find a builder ,and they just chose a company that best suited what they wanted.
The family was ''very excited'' to be receiving the keys to their new home next month.
