A sloping block can be a huge advantage if you want a unique and interesting home. Your home will not look like any others on your street or in your area if you get Braewood Homes to design and build it. So, the land you have chosen, in the area you want to live, is a sloping block. That isn’t a problem at Braewood Homes – we love a challenge. We can design your home with you to ensure that you get a home that not only is perfect for you but also uses the slope of your land as an asset rather than a problem.
When planning your new home there are many elements to take into consideration – let’s presume the two most basic ones of budget and location have already been decided. What do YOU AND YOUR FAMILY need from your new home. It could be a good exercise to start by listing everything you want or need.
Most new homes have their garages facing the front street and the garage is integrated into the frontal aspect of the home. As many homes have over 20% of their frontage as a garage door, it is important to make the right choice. Your garage door needs to complement the style, look and colour of the home façade you have chosen.
Garages seem to be a part of the house plan that gets less thought than all the other rooms. It shouldn’t – the garage plays a fairly big role in the family home. The size of the garage you need (the realistic size) depends on the role you want it to play and how that can be fitted into the house plan you are designing with your Custom Builder. If you build with a volume builder, the garage on the plan is the garage you get, making changes after the plans are complete is a very expensive option.
