It’s time to live large on a small block!

Here on the Sunshine Coast, Beachside Construction have built a strong reputation as a quality builder with great customer service. We’ve built big homes, small homes, two-storey homes and homes on big slopes! But one trend we’re seeing more and more is building custom homes on smaller blocks of land.

Smaller lots are becoming more and more common on the Sunshine Coast (in fact throughout all of Australia), and it actually makes a lot of sense! So many new estates are popping up swelling with amenities – cafes, playgrounds, green spaces, sporting grounds – with smaller sized blocks that more people can afford.

So if you’ve recently snapped up a smaller sized block of land, we’re ready to work our design magic and deliver a perfectly sized home for your family and lifestyle. Here’s the top three benefits of building a custom home on smaller parcels of land?

Design Flexibility

Custom designed homes offer greater flexibility in personal style.

Smart design choices play an important role in getting the most out of a small block of land. When you opt for a custom home, you also gain full control over designing your home space.

We are a leading custom home builder on the Sunshine Coast and have extensive experience in the industry. We understand our customers’ needs and know their priorities, and we work together with you to plan the layout of your new home to utilise every centimetre of the available space while focusing on your lifestyle requirements.

The size of a block does not mean you will feel cramped and uncomfortable. We can extend the home vertically to two or three stories (building regulations permitting) to provide a spacious living area for you and your family.

Energy Efficiency

One of the reasons we specialise in building custom-designed homes is because of the environmental impact. A custom home by Beachside Construction will always be designed to complement your block of land, from the size and layout of the home, orientation and placement of doors and windows to ensure as much natural light and ventilation. These factors help to keep a home cooler in summer and warmer in winter, reducing the need for artificial lighting and cooling/heating.

Better Investment

As each year passes, we see land prices rise and rise. This is because, as the Sunshine Coast demographic changes and densities increase, the demand-supply gap increases, pushing up the cost of housing. A well-designed custom home will more often that not attract a higher price when selling, than an ‘off-the-shelf’ house plan. Furthermore, at Beachside Construction we use experienced, reliable and quality trades and only recommend the best suppliers – this leads to an even greater value appreciation as the quality of the home and internal fittings will stand the test of time.

So if you have a block of land in mind, or looking to move to the Sunshine Coast, come and have a chat with us at Beachside Construction. We would be happy to discuss your custom home design needs, and offer advice on what would work for your block of land.
