Block Selection & Orientation

The design of a house or an addition to a home requires a systematic and rationale approach to design. Design is about combining creative concepts with form and function.  Begin your design process by looking around at display homes or through design magazines, identify what you want, and what you can afford. Once you have the basic plan and design elements worked out you can start to talk about designing your project. Some issues that you should now start to consider are:

  • Selection of the block
  • Energy efficiency requirements and building alignment
  • Life style
  • Budget

    Selection of the block

    Many people starting out to build their dream home tend to look at a block of land and then seek to get a house to fit. Many building developers create a sub division from a secured allotment of land. In order to make a profit a developer will identify the number of blocks they need and where those blocks need to be located. They are required to put in power and other services with a minimum street size.  The prevailing decision is rarely what the client wants but what profit can be created from the venture.

    However, as the customer you can choose the block that suits what you want to do with it. A couple of design tips that may help you are:

    Do you want the sun in the house and if so where and when do you want it to come in?

    Ideally the building should be positioned to catch the winter sun, especially in South East Queensland. However, in warmer tropical climates it is better to reduce sun exposure to the windows by having wider sofits. Other design tips you may want to consider are:

    Face low traffic area rooms to the south east including:

    • Garages
    • Laundry
    • Wet areas
    • Generally rooms that can be blocked off

    Face certain areas north west to north east including:

    • Living areas
    • Dining
    • Decks
    • Bedrooms

    Life Style

    • Do you entertain? If so do you need a veranda or outdoor entertaining area?
    • Do you require drive through access to the backyard?
    • What storage do you want?
    • How many rooms and where do you want them located?
    • How many car parks?
    • Do you need a shed or workshop?
    • Do you want a walk in robe?
    • Do you need/want an ensuite?

    Once you have a bit of a picture of what you are looking for in a house you should probably reconsider your block purchase and may be pay a little more for a block that will enable you to build the home you want.

    Budget

    This is probably the most defining factor in your whole design. Consider the very maximum you are prepared to pay.  Building the house is only part of the equation.  You need to consider the type of fittings, floor coverings, white goods and landscaping. (more…)

    You need to be independent

    A Building Certifier will pass you on to a Building Designer, Architect or Draftsperson.

    If we take a basic example where a building application is required under a self-assessable application relating directly to a residential house, which does not trigger any development issues then the process will be the following.

    A Building Designer or Architect will evaluate the site; the house design & the zoning to establish what can be built on the site.

    The house is then design & plans drawn hopefully to reflect the client’s budget.

    At this point they may need to use consultants like Surveyors or Engineers

    Once the plans have being drawn for Construction Issue, they are then forwarded to relative consultants, these being

    Engineers for footing, slab & other structure design elements.

    Soil test: to evaluate the soil structure so that the engineers can design the footings accordingly. Usually Engineers provide this service but can be independent.

    Energy Efficiency Compliance: some times done by the Building Designer Or Building Certifier.

    This information is then passed on to the Building Certifier. These guys require multiple copies of everything & in time I will post these on my web site. Generally they will provide you with a list of items they require before they even take the plans over the desk. (more…)

    After all that the fun starts

    If you were building a new house I would recommend you do the following:

    Engage a Quantity Surveyor to establish what the house should be costing to build (with in reason).

    Next:

    1. Have the quote put out for tender.
    2. You can then pass this on to builders you know & restrict how many builders you want to quote by picking ones you have researched, stick with 4 to 6 builders.

      By doing the quantity survey you will know which builders are pricing to much or not enough & you should be able to establish why this is the case if you have a tender report carried out once the quotes have been received.

      This process could save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars.

    3. Have the builder use a Queensland Building Services Authority (QBSA) contract for best client protection
    4. Once you have chosen the builder & signed the contract life should be a little better knowing you have done the best you can do to protect yourself. Which by the way is more than probably 99% of the rest of the population does.

      The services that we provide can take you through these services with minium stress.

    This again is a simplified look at the process, there are a lot of other factors that you will be required to work through, like the type of fit out you require in the house to the colour section but at least we can remove the most important part of the process leaving you more time to create the home you will be happy with.
