Are you on the hunt for a brand new home that you can build your future around? Perhaps you’re looking at building your very own home or even buying one that’s just come onto the market. No matter what path is ahead of you, there’s no denying it’s an exciting one. The great Australian dream of owning your own home can be a bit intimidating and full of choices you never knew you needed to make. But never fear, we are here to break down some of the most desired features that Australians look for when searching for a home design to build.
One aspect you’ll need to consider is the day to day running of your home – gas, electricity, water. It’s always a great idea to think about the measures you’ll put into place to ensure efficiency of your home before you start the building process. Double glazed windows will keep in the heat in winter and the searing sun out during summer. This will help enormously with your heating and cooling bills, whether it’s gas or electric units you have for temperature control purposes. Solar panels are a fantastic way to offset your emissions and power your home, which is simultaneously saving you money and lessening your footprint on the planet. Outside your home, your garden will need watering and the installation of a water tank means you can collect rainwater and run off from your roof and guttering system. This will save an enormous amount of water and money for you and keep your yard looking beautiful all year round.
A layout to suit your lifestyle
Downsizing? Planning a family? Have loads of relatives that visit regularly? Or do you just want to get into the property market as soon as possible? Hotondo Homes has floor plans that can accommodate all your needs. Our most popular double or single storey home designs have a lot of room for flexibility and aim to grow with your family. You can choose from 2, 3, 4 or 5 bedrooms and single or multiple living spaces that are closely located or spread throughout the house. Our open plan designs facilitate communal living and give your family a fantastic place to congregate and enjoy each other’s company.
There’s no doubt about it, Aussies love to entertain. Whether it’s a barbeque in the backyard, a Christmas Day lunch with the extended family, or a kids party you’ll have the space you need to do it all. At Hotondo Homes we offer a range of home designs with alfresco space to enjoy, so your home has a true blend of indoor/outdoor living. From ample outdoor space with a green lawn for the kids to play on, there really is something for everyone.
