Building two storey homes here in Perth is becoming a trend among new homeowners. There are reasons why people opt for building this kind of house. Why? Let’s find out!
Do you want to build your own dream home? Perhaps, you believe you’ve already thought of all the things you need. You know exactly what you need and want in your home, but have you thought about what you lack or even what you don’t have? You have given much thought and consideration to what will work for you, but have you taken the time to think about what won’t work?
Having a low budget and poor planning can lead way to wayward disastrous and inconvenient mistakes. When you plan to build a new home, you must think about your requirements and the things that you have from all angles. And that includes looking at the available space you have.
Many homeowners investing in their new home sometimes find it tough to fit all the space and amenities they want on the smaller and oddly shaped lots these days. They don’t want to give up the luxury they desire, but they find out that having a one storey home may mean giving up yard space or a nice view from their new property. The solution to this is building a two-storey home. There are numerous advantages to building up instead of building out that many potential homeowners aren’t aware of.
The most obvious benefit of building a double-storey home is the amount of space available – you can double the amount of living space available despite having a small lot. Another way to look at it is that one two-storey house (depending on the size) can be equivalent to two single-storey houses. By having more living space in your house means that you got more options such as having a bigger floor plan to play in terms of design, having more rooms and more storage space.
Another advantage of having a double-storey home is keeping privacy. Since family areas are separated from the rest of the house, each member can have a haven of privacy that visitors to their home won’t infringe on.
Also, building higher gives the homeowners greater opportunities to maximise any views that their property may have. It can also improve your natural home lighting by rising out the shadows. In order to make the most of the improved light available and the aspect that being higher up provides, homeowners are choosing to have their living areas on the upper storey.
These are the reasons why building a two-storey house is ideal for you. Keep in mind that planning is important so it is important to plan ahead and be prepared to avoid the stress brought by building a new home.
