Easy ways to ensure your home fits your life and your block size.

Easy Way

Along with all the excitement of building a brand new home, one of the most common questions clients ask is: What’s the best home design to fit on my particular block of land?

The short answer is that there are many different factors that you need to think about carefully, beginning with things like your family, the kind of lifestyle you lead, and your plans for extensions or resale in the future.

All of these will help you decide on the best home design for you block. We offer plenty of choice, and our sales team is always happy to help you work out what’s the best fit so you get an affordable new home that works for you.

These handy questions will guide you when you’re deciding on a home design:

1. What’s your family size and lifestyle?

This helps you figure out how much space you need, and what kind of space. If you’re a small family now, do you have plans to grow? Think about indoor and outdoor space for kids to play, do homework, get online, watch TV or chill out with friends. Teenagers enjoy escape zones as much as parents! If you’re a couple without kids, maybe you want extra bedroom and bathroom space to have friends and family stay with you.

2. How do you live your everyday life?

Are you a busy family? If so, run through your daily schedule and figure out what’s important. You’ll most likely need a floorplan that lets everyone get along easily. Think about where the kitchen’s located and how it connects to other living areas. What about the alfresco? Look for a design that gives you enough outdoor space to enjoy life. Need backyard lawn for cricket, trampolines or a cubby house? Planning a pool? Make sure you know what you want.

Or you a busy worker, always on the go? You won’t want to be thinking about maintenance when you’re working hard and playing hard! So figure out how much time you’ll have after work for keeping up with things like lawns and gardens. If low-maintenance living is your dream, pick a home design that makes it work. Our team can advise on building covenants and any restrictions on you home’s footprint on your block.

3. What are your resale plans in future?

Selling will be the last thing on your mind right now. But thinking ahead can make all the difference to the resale value of your home. Remember that a home built with a family focus will give you a much wider buying audience, so choose a floorplan that has the traditional spaces defined for family living, even if you don’t intend to use the rooms that way. Think about the number of bedrooms and bathrooms families are after. If you’re starting with fewer bedrooms and plan to extend in future, make sure your block size will allow additions. Our team can give you all the answers on this.
