There are many reasons you may need custom home design, and we’re the experts to talk to when you do. Firstly, one of the most popular reasons for Sunshine Coast custom home design is that you simply want your dream home! A new home is a huge financial investment, and you want to picture yourself in the home for years to come. That’s why it should be something special, and truly suited to your lifestyle. Another reason for custom home design may be special physical requirements. You may not be able to use stairs, or need ramp access.
This can also lead to certain design needs inside the home. If you have mobility concerns, you can design a home perfectly suited to you. In addition, you may have a uniquely shaped block of land that doesn’t support a standard home design. This is when you call the experts at AUSMAR to help determine the perfect use of space and design your home accordingly. Whatever your reasons for custom home design, our expert designers are there to work with you every step of the way.
There’s a popular misconception that you can only have an affordable home if you choose a standard design or buy a house and land package. There is an element of truth to that, because custom home design is more expensive than standard. However, that doesn’t mean custom homes on the Sunshine Coast should be out of people’s reach financially. Here at AUSMAR we believe in building homes as affordable as possible. Backed by the AUSMAR, we have a strong network of professionals, as well as shared management and administration services. This results in lower costs for us, and we pass the savings on to you.
Just like any new home journey, a custom build can be very exciting. That’s why you want to keep up with the progress every step of the way. We understand that, which is why we provide access to a building account to every client called BUILDERTREND. This handy dashboard lets you view updated photos, access important documents, and even message us with any questions you might have about your build. At AUSMAR, we want you to be involved in your custom home build from start to finish.
As Sunshine Coast home build specialists, we know that not every parcel of land is the same. Many standard home designs simply aren’t created with sloping blocks and other complexities in mind. So, that’s just one of the reasons we offer a custom home design service. Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast land for sale isn’t always flat and easy to work with. So, if you’ve purchased a block of that’s a little less than flat, don’t despair. We’re professional home builders, and there’s no challenge we can’t overcome. Having built custom homes for over 30+ years, we’ve seen and built on all types of land. Sloping sites are no exception.
If you’re shopping around for land and you just can’t find any flat blocks in your desired area, don’t throw in the towel just yet. You might identify a perfect suburb or location for your home, but you’re worried that the best available block is on a slope. While many see that as a problem, here at AUSMAR we see it as an issue to overcome. Our custom design service can work with any type of land, and that includes sloping sites.
In fact, having a sloping site can even open up opportunities you wouldn’t normally have. For example, it’s often difficult to build functional outdoor decks on a flat block. Sloping sites, however, are perfect for building a backyard deck where you can enjoy the afternoon sun. You’ve also got some more interesting design options on a sloping site, such as having downstairs rooms through half of the building. Perfect for rumpus rooms, or even semi self-contained areas for teenagers. So, don’t let a sloping block of land discourage you. Talk to the sloping site experts today and start working on a solution.
Naturally, one of the cheapest ways to build a new home is as part of a house and land package. Standard home designs are great value because there’s no need for new design work. So, if you need a custom home design, there will obviously be some additional expenses depending on exactly what you need. However, consider the other side of the new home coin. Not withstanding location, but a flat block of land will usually be more expensive than a sloping site in the same neighbourhood. If you could save money by purchasing a sloping block of land, you can put those savings into custom home design. So, while it seems all doom and gloom if you have to pay more for a sloping site build, consider the savings you can make from the land purchase in the first place.
