How to Make the Most of Your Block Space

One of the most exciting things about building a new house is the opportunity you have to create something completely suited to your individual style and needs. The first step starts with your block of land. You have a blank canvas just waiting for you to turn it into something great!

So whether you’re building your first home at Monument and you’re on a budget, or looking for room to grow, there are a few things to consider when it comes to making the most of your space.

Get expert advice
When you’re looking for the perfect block, your builder will be able to give you expert advice on how to get the most out of your space. They will be able to walk you through the house positioning, and give guidance on any regulations and design guidelines that you might also need to comply with.

Know your living needs
Creating a seamless connection between the inside of your home and outdoor living areas is a balance of good design and clever use of space. Consider your alfresco space and its position to be able to make the most of outdoor living all year round. You can enjoy easy access to the kitchen for entertaining and the veggie patch for those gourmet barbecues!

Go up
If a smaller lot has caught your eye, but you feel you might need more outdoor space, why not explore double storey options? With a two storey home you won’t have to sacrifice on your garden space to get that extra bedroom in! It really is the best of both worlds.

Orientation makes a difference
The positioning of your home can make a difference when trying to make the most out of your space. Have you considered flipping your floor plan to make use of the North facing sun? It may help you make the most of the winter sun, while avoiding the heat of summer for optimal energy efficiency.
