Narrow block house designs
It is quite clear that finding available flat land on which to build your dream home, is getting more difficult. Many land developers are trying to squeeze as many blocks as they can out of new land estates. Whilst some offer traditional sized lots, the majority are all narrow blocks. So let’s talk about narrow block house design and all the considerations you need to be aware of.
So, where do you start? Do you choose your block of land first, or choose your house design? Have you fallen in love with that estate that is close to everything? It has all the transport facilities and the childcare and schools you need. Or do you have specific needs in what you want for your dream home? It appears that everyone has a different approach. So let’s start with choosing your narrow block house design first.
Factors you must consider when choosing a narrow block house design
- How many bedrooms
- Number of living areas
- Single or double garage
- Building covenants
Most people looking to build a new home already seem to know what they want in a narrow block house design. You will have an idea of how many bedrooms you require for your family. Do you want plenty of space to relax and so need two living areas? It is often hard to fit a double garage on a narrow block house design, but not impossible.
Another consideration you must take into account when choosing a narrow block house design, are the building covenants of each land estate. These building covenants are guidelines on what the developer will allow you to build. Sometimes contained in these covenants are the side boundary setbacks. Before making the final decision on your narrow block house design, be sure to check you comply with any of these building covenants.
