Quality Custom Homes
You’ve found the perfect site for your dream home. The views are spectacular, the location ideal between work, schools, friends and family. Just one small concern: with the views come a building site that can be challenging. What you need is sloping block builders in Brisbane that will help you assess the land and advise you on height restrictions, possible drainage issues and how to get the best out of the site, while keeping costs down.
Gradients vary as do sloping block house designs in Brisbane. Fortunately, Tangara Constructions have experience designing and building on a variety of exciting sites. We love the challenge, and we understand that sloping block homes in Brisbane will become places where families live, love and thrive.
When you embark on the journey to build steep block house designs around Brisbane, there are some factors to consider. Luckily such a build allows more creative scope for the architect which can count in your favour. This cost can be offset against the lower price you may be paying for the block because of its steep nature. Keep in mind that building costs can go up significantly because you need to consider the slope and a split or pole design. You will probably need to cut and fill to create a flat block as the foundation of your home. A good designer will keep excavation and land cuts to the minimum while providing a design that enhances the qualities of the site. Think expansive views, natural light and incorporating rock finds in your landscaping – it is safe to say that your house will be the only one of its kind.
Drainage and retaining walls are also important. The last thing you need is a pool of accumulated water at the bottom of your plot leading to erosion. Fortunately, there are several ways to deal with water seepage and sewage on steep sites including pumps, manholes and careful planning. Water can be led down a predetermined path with trenches and pipes, and erosion control can include the use of terraces, and planting shrubs and trees strategically. Speaking to someone who has experience working with steep blocks should be your starting point. There are no challenges, only opportunities, we believe. We will always find the most cost-effective and sustainable way to address the unique features of your sloping block.
