You must research your land before purchasing to build your home. So often costs are incurred that are more to do with the location of the building site, as opposed to your construction costs. Taylor Made Homes therefore are honest with you at the outset about the challenges with working in certain environments. Simple research, contacting your local council will ensure you are in the know when it comes to any land- use setbacks or certain zoning requirements.
Check for any covenants that may not suit your lifestyle. Some may restrict the style, type, size or location of your home.
Do you have access to utilities such as water, sewerage and electricity? If the land does not have water services, find out about the water rights, any access points you may have to a creek or dam? Will you need to bore, or to catch water? If there is no sewerage then you will have to allow for a septic system.
Congratulations, you are a proud land owner with grand building schemes we would love to help you achieve here at Taylor Made Homes. We would really like to know what your block is actually like. Do you have good drainage? Will the block need to be levelled or cleared for construction?
The direction your block faces will determine how best to build your home. In our home state, Tasmania we all LOVE to make the most of the sunshine, especially in the cooler months that seem to stretch out for plenty of the year. You will need to consider living arrangements, such as whether you really want your sundrenched rooms or alfresco designed areas facing onto the street. We want our clients to be in their element, living their best lives in their Taylor Made Home so we want to make sure you are happy with your building block and how the designed home will be positioned on the land before a project gets underway.
Sometimes things on paper are not as they appear in real life. Check for easements that may affect your building site. By measuring the block you will come face to face with any neighbouring buildings, fences or driveways that may not fit in with your plans.
Do you have any indication, as to what soil type we will be working on when building your Taylor Made Home? It is important for owners to have an idea about this. It can determine much about how your design will fit in with the environment you have chosen to live. Ask a neighbour, how their soil may have been classed and if it affected their home build, or invest in a soil test to ensure you have made the best decision at the outset. There are cost risks if the soil type is not favourable for your home design.
