Cottage homes on small sites have become popular with first home buyers seeking affordable options and clients wanting a compact, low maintenance home. Designs are usually double or triple storied to maximise the size of the building and reduce the building footprint on the allotment. This makes the most of the space available and allows room for a small garden. Outdoor entertainment areas need to be carefully positioned to allow privacy from neighbours and bedroom areas positioned to reduce road noise.
Often new housing estates have certain building covenants which need to be followed e.g. restrictions on roof pitches, specifications for fencing, landscaping, colours, wall materials, site placement. We can advise on whether relaxation of these conditions is possible. Our knowledge and experience in these areas will make certain that your plans comply with current regulations and that the design utilises the unique features of your block to its best potential.
