Thanks for quick reply to my post, I already looked at few houses and they are in range of 130-150k per year so I am saving 90K per year from the housing allowance as they will be paying me directly. My wife is a teacher assistant so hopefully she will find some work shortly.

The vehicle allowance will allow you to have two full size vehicles if you barter well. With four kids, most likely guessing your wife will need a vehicle.

You can expect 6,000 alone out of your salary every month, to go on school fees for your other two children.

My opinion, no way unless your wife is going to be working. .
