Why we are the sloping block specialists on the Sunshine Coast
Building your new home on a sloping block requires a custom solution. Speak to most project builders and the moment you say “we want to build on a sloping block” there’s a high likelihood you’ll be told “sorry we don’t build on sloping land”.
Sloping blocks come with a range of complexities and challenges, and if you don’t choose a sloping block builder you could be up for a budget blow out, or worse, problems down the track. Beachside Construction are one of the Sunshine Coast’s specialist sloping block builders. We are experts in slope specific building methods and specialized construction programs.
So why is it important to work with the best sloping block builder? Here’s our top reasons:
Getting the foundations right for your sloping block home
During the early stages of the building process, it’s necessary to excavate, add concrete piers or screw piles (depending on your home design), make provisions for adequate drainage pits and construct retaining walls to prevent erosion or drainage problems. If these issues aren’t addressed early on, it can compromise the structural integrity of your new Sunshine Coast home.
The future value of your home is at stake
Working with a sloping block specialist means you’re investing in the future value of your new home. Get it right from the beginning and you’re limiting the potential risks that building a house on a sloping block poses.
We design homes that maximise the potential of your sloping block
As custom home builders, every home we design is unique. In most cases, we like to start with an on-site meeting so we can see your block of land and understand the vision for your new Sunshine Coast home. During the on-site meeting you’ll deal directly with the builder, Paul Johannessen, who’ll guide you on the best design options, taking into consideration your budget, the contours of the land and your design requirements.
The key things we consider when designing a site responsive home on sloped land
- The steepness of the block – this might dictate whether you have a pole home or a slab home, a single stepped home or a split-level design;
- The direction of the slope – whether the slope runs up from the road or down from the road or across the block;
- Location and amount of drainage to move water away from the home;
- The direction of your views, and which views you want to maximise;
- Environmental considerations, such as maximising light, air flow and reducing the effects of wind tunnels.
No Budget blow-outs
Building a home on a sloping block is more expensive than building on a flat block, however choosing a custom home builder who specialises in building on slopes will help reduce costs associated with the build. In particular, a site-responsive design will require less excavation and less retaining – and these can be heavy ticket items!
