Designing and building a new home on a challenging site (building on a slope or narrow block) requires specialist skills and a builder who has a proven history.

The design of your new home must suit your lifestyle and your budget, however it must also consider the fall of the land, solar orientation, flood or vegetation overlays, prevailing winds and site access. We often find that sloping sites are purchased due to the potential for views and this often becomes a key consideration in the design of the home.

Our team at Green Earth Homes has expertise in custom designing and constructing homes that overcome the challenges of a sloping site. We work with the slopes to maximise the attributes that your block offers to give you the best outcome for your home.

Challenges we often design around include:

  • Building on a slope
  • Building envelope restrictions due to setbacks, planning overlays, vegetation protection requirements
  • Imported fill to site
  • Uncovering rock on your land
  • Tight or restricted site access
  • Flood level issues
  • Unusually shaped sites
  • Challenging soil conditions
  • Steep driveway access

The design approach at Green Earth Homes, is to work with the site, to maximising the solar orientation of the land and the views while limiting the disturbance to your site. Our team also aims to avoid unnecessary and expensive site cuts and retaining walls where ever possible – this is possible due to our extensive experience and our ability to assess the site accurately.

These challenging blocks often provide the fantastic opportunity for spectacular and innovative design to be used.

Where other builders may lack the experience and / or confidence to tackle a difficult or sloping sites, Nathan, and our team at Green Earth Homes, specialise in providing custom designed solutions to suit your lifestyle and your budget, no matter how challenging the site.
