Blocks tend to be smaller these days so it’s important that your home doesn’t feel overlooked.
A Designer First Home can be designed to suit your block, ensuring that windows minimize views of the neighbors while framing scenery and making the most of natural light
inside. We'll do a thorough site analysis of your block that takes into consideration natural factors like light, wind, rain, heat as well as slopes,
council and any covenant requirements.
The orientation of your new home can be planned in relation to sun and wind patterns, enhancing the energy efficiency of your new home.
This can reduce energy bills substantially by making the most of passive heating and cooling. In tropical regions such as Cairns,
houses should be angled to benefit from cooling breezes, funneling the breeze through the house.
Designer First Homes can be designed to run on solar-energy and have better quality windows and insulation to maintain the inside temperature.
They can incorporate environmentally-friendly options such as water-saving devices, compost pits and indoor herb gardens.
To make these kinds of adaptions in an existing home could be costly.
Quality Appliances and Fittings
This is one of the great advantages to building a new home; you aren’t forced to live with someone else’s choices.
If you buy a house that doesn’t quite meet your standards, it’s easy to tell yourself it’s only temporary and you’ll update soon, at extra costs.
The reality is that most new home owners don’t have any spare cash for several years to buy new appliances and make changes in design and layout.
With a new build, you will get the appliances and layout that work for you without compromising, without waiting and without extra cost down the track.
