The Sloping Block Home Design Process

When looking to build a sloping block house design, the first step is to inspect the land. The evaluation of the land is vital in helping us determine its approximate complexity, allowing us to understand how it will impact the design considerations. It also gives a chance to investigate the adjacent properties.

Upon completing the property inspection, a detailed contour is required to enable our designers to draft a concept drawing. From here, you are able to communicate your thoughts and home requirements to us. Once we’ve established a comprehensive view of your ideal home design, the preliminary design stage can begin.

Once the initial designs have been finalised, a pricing framework is established. The initial designs plainly identify where the splits are to be located in the home, the height of each split and the number of stairs between each level. Developing a sloping block house calls for a considerable degree of planning and home building proficiency.

Structural Guarantee

Financial stability, a peerless reputation coupled with an unmatched level of experience developing first class luxury homes for our clients, enables us to offer an astounding 25 year structural guarantee with all luxury homes built.

Design Stage

Based on what was established at your first meeting with us, our architect drafts a series of floor plans and interior designs, before inviting you to inspect the final concept. Upon your approval, we present you with an extensive list of fine quality décor choices to furnish your new home. We then supply you with an itemised list of the expenses that reflect your home design and décor options. Lastly, we create a schedule that provides an estimate of when construction will commence and when your new home will be ready for you to move into.

During the approval phase, you have the ability to make last-minute changes to the floor plans and building materials. When you are satisfied with all the changes and are ready for us to proceed, the official contract documents are created. Once you have approved the documents and signed them, the building permits will be sourced from your local council so that development of your new sloping block house can officially get underway.

The construction stage begins by preparing your block of land. This consists of making any necessary excavations, clearing away any existing rubbish and removing any unwanted obstructions, such as large trees. Once the site has been deemed suitable, the foundation can then be laid. During the construction phase, we keep in regular contact with you through phone calls and onsite meetings.


The Handover

When the construction of your new split level home has been completed, you will be invited to our head office. Here, you will be issued with a portfolio containing all the official building documentation, along with the keys to your magnificent new residence. At this time, we also organise the dates for our complimentary post-construction inspection of your home.
