THE team at Hotondo Homes in Inverloch recognise land comes in all shapes and sizes, and can often have quite a slope on it, making it more challenging to build on.
Rather than seeing a sloping block as a negative, local builder Trent Allen aims to make the most out of the land by taking advantage of its orientation.
“We are passionate about working with our clients to ensure the home we’re building is the home of their dreams. One of the best things about a sloping block is that we can actually maximise sunlight and make the most of the sweeping views the Gippsland region has to offer,” Trent said.
“Sloping or unusual shaped blocks actually allow us to get a little more creative when we’re building because we can work with the orientation of the land to create extra storage spaces, a second living area, or even a teenager’s retreat,” Trend said.
Hotondo Homes Inverloch goes above and beyond to ensure the structural integrity and longevity of their clients’ homes, offering a number of foundation options to accommodate varying degrees of upslope and downslope blocks.
“We also pride ourselves on inspecting our clients blocks to ensure we are making the best use of the shape and fall of the land, as well as addressing any issues before they arise,” Trent said.
The team also specialise in single and double storey homes, split level homes, knockdown rebuilds and acreage properties, and with more than 90 flexible floor plans and a huge variety of façade options available, the team can find the perfect home for you.
“We can also build a home with a reverse living floorplan, with the central living areas on one level to enhance the views, while the bedrooms and main bathroom are on the ground floor,” he said.
“Some home owners opt for a split level design which has the kitchen and open-plan areas situated on a different level, and just like a double storey, the ability to build up means you can have a larger backyard without compromising on the size of your home.
“The benefits are endless with a sloping block, these designs cater for all climates and can actually enhance your home’s energy efficiency, control and comfort. They also allow for natural ventilation and drainage.”
