Making Sure Your Forever Home is Really Forever


Finding a home you’ll fall in love with and enjoy for years to come can be a difficult feat. You need to love where you live, but most importantly, you’ll need to love to live within the four walls of your home.

There’s no better way to ensure your forever home is really forever by building it from scratch. Whether you’ve sketched out the ideas for a floor plan or browsing Pinterest for inspiration, there’s a few important factors you’ll need to consider before you begin the build. Provincial Homes has listed them below.

Work with the right builder

It makes sense to build the home of your dreams – literally – with an experienced builder who understands your vision. But more than that, you need to get the green light. Find a builder local to your area who knows the land well and is well-versed and knows what’s achievable when it comes to your space. A good builder will be able to lay out any limitations and council conditions for your chosen block, including bushfire limitations, flood zone impacts and other factors that may block the process. This stage is very crucial so you don’t waste any time or get high hopes about the perfect block of land only to find out you can’t build on it.

Is it big enough for a growing family?

When you work with an experienced builder in designing your custom home, you’ll be able to factor in things like zoning to accommodate for a growing family. Smart zoning involves placing the children’s and guest bedrooms in one area of the house to ensure privacy, so you can easily close off an area until the pitter patter of tiny feet arrives. Similarly, down the track when you want to downsize, these same rooms can be transformed into a study, a library or something similar.

Consider the location

Undoubtedly, the location of your real estate is one of the most important aspects of your forever home. This is crucial to the needs of every household member – both present and future. You’ll want to be close to all the important amenities such as a shopping centre, grocery store, medical centre, and primary and secondary schools later down the track. Just as important is public transport, roads and major motorways – all these factors will help determine how easily you can commute to work.
