Choosing to build is a big decision, and getting it right the first time is a priority for everyone involved. To make sure you have enough room for your family to grow and retain the ability to accommodate future owners, you need to consider how your family’s needs may change during the time you live there. And while the number and size of rooms are key factors, it’s also important to work with your section right from the start, ensuring any plans not only fit on it, but maximise its exposure to the sun. Here’s a few tips to bear in mind when picking your plans.

Whether you already have a section or are looking at a few different locations, any house plan you chose should maximise the sun exposure on offer. If you’re looking at plans drawn to a particular section, you’ll notice they show which direction north is so that you can predict the path of the sun and identify which areas of your home will get the most light throughout the day. These areas should be your living room, deck or outdoor living space and your bedrooms, and will ensure that your place is a comfortable and inviting home year-round. Available with any plan or house and land package we offer is the ability to flip the drawing or change its orientation so that your home receives sunlight where you want it

Flow

To best accommodate your family and any future homeowners, it’s worth considering an open plan layout that allows for the most customisation when it comes to interior design. This is easy to spot on floor plans because you won’t see any walls or partitions separating the living space from the kitchen, and it means that the position and size of couches and dining tables can be shifted depending on your lifestyle or how many people are in the space. 

Customise it to your budget

While we offer a number of house plans that are drawn to accommodate a variety of budgets and lifestyles, one thing unique about us is the ability you have to customise any of our designs. You have the options to pick from a number of finishes and building materials with live price updates and can choose to work with our consultants and designers to fully customise plans so that they enhance your family’s lifestyle.
