Maximising the slope of your block

Your new home is your biggest investment and by being smarter it will give you a maximum return when you go to sell it. What we mean is, why not spend money on the home where it will give you a much better return?

You may be asking what we mean? Lets look at the two visual figures below:

We have a stepped slab and as you can see the house works with the slope of the land at the same time.

Benefits include…

  • Reduced driveway slope
  • Higher ceilings inside
  • Higher garage door
  • Unique design with a few steps
  • Less cut and fill
  • Less retaining walls
  • Better back yard
  • Less site costs
  • Less landscaping costs
  • The cost to do something like this is approx $10,000.

Lets take a look at the next figure:

As you can see this is a standard cut and fill home that most builders give you because this is the cheapest way for them to build. The problem is most clients do not know what they are going to end up with: large, expensive retaining walls, steep driveway, increased piering, drainage issues and an asset that is difficult to sell.
