Advantages of building on a slope
Building on a sloping site opens up many incredible architectural opportunities. Your new home may have such features as stepped floors, basement walkouts, and extensive panoramic windows.
Hillside homes are the exclusivity and remoteness that they usually offer. Cities and town centres are rarely built on a hillside; typically they are located on more level ground. Building with the slope is a way to get away from the city and enjoy rural life.
5 Considerations for Building on a sloping block
In order to build a home that is essentially designed for use on a slopping site, there are 5 major aspects that you’ll need to consider during the design process:
How a slope affects the type of your home that can be built
How to ensure all spaces are designed to fit your lifestyle
How to maximize the natural light coming into your home
How to effectively utilize all living spaces
How to take advantage of the views
Dream Concept Homes ensure that each home is built as an environmentally-friendly construction, both during the building process and by incorporating some environmentally-conscious elements in the design that increase energy efficiency and maintain the long-term value of the home as well.
Subdividing your site can be a great opportunity potentially offering you considerable financial rewards such as rental return. We can assist you fulfill your dreams by building a new additional dwelling on your site or removing the old house and building two or more new homes in its location.
However, the subdividing process can be very cost-effective as well as time-consuming. It comprises with consents, council restrictions and planning regulations and all of that comes before a new home is built on your site.
