Why you should choose a custom home builder for your compact block of land

As leading custom home builders on the Sunshine Coast, we at Beachside Construction understand the importance of designing and building a home that maximises the site – in terms of size, location and contours. We know that building your dream home is not all about the block of land, but designing beautiful living spaces that are comfortable and luxurious, and built to a top quality standard. This is what we do best!

As the Sunshine Coast population continues to grow (forecasters say by 40,000 people over the next six years – SOURCE), we’re seeing land sizes shrinking. Soon, large sized front and back yards will become a thing of the past, and more people will be building on a compact block. So, what are the 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, please give us at Beachside Construction a call on 0409 591 005. We would be happy to discuss your custom home design needs, and offer advice on what would work for your block of land.
