Get the skinny on narrow lots

As the desire to live within the inner city continues to thrive in Brisbane (and beyond), the likelihood that you will be building on a narrow block is becoming more and more likely.

Narrow lot homes are perfect for those who want to remain close to the CBD without breaking the bank.

Small doesn’t mean a compromise on the quality or finish of interiors, in fact one benefit of narrow blocks is you can incorporate double storey house plans with balconies and alfresco areas to maximise your living space.

So what are the benefits of a narrow block of land?

Maximise your living space

Embracing a narrow plan can provide benefits over even more ample lots! Small lot designs allow you to maximise your living space rather than spending it on maintaining a large yard.

Consider your courtyard design

By incorporating window access around vertical gardens and green walls, your outdoor area can be maximised while making you internal space feel wider.

Let the light flood in!

As Brisbane building covenants require a one metre setback from boundaries you can incorporate more windows to maximise natural lighting within your home, not only maximising ventilation but making your home more energy efficient in the process.

Maximise storage opportunities

Get creative by turning spaces like underneath the stairs into modern repositories for your household items. While you’re at it, opt for dual purpose furniture that will make your living spaces feel more spacious and homely.

Embrace the environment

Create more environmentally friendly spaces by incorporating porches and alfresco areas into your outdoor plans so as to reduce the consumption of water that goes into maintaining a lawn and garden. This will not only save you money but is environmentally friendly at the same time.
