With sections in Auckland getting smaller and smaller, clever design is the name of the game. A Home design has to be designed around the section it will sit upon and not the other way around. If you have a house design you love but have not yet the land, unless it is a large section or lifestyle block you own, chances are that the home will not fit the section. Things to consider in home design are:
Make the most of all day sun by putting living areas north facing if possible. This helps for the all-important warm and healthy home.
Use of land rules.
Even though Auckland Council is supposed to be one council their use of land land rules are different from suburb to suburb. These rules will have a big influence of what you can or can’t do with your home design.
Size of section.
With the footprint of your home only being allowed 35% site coverage in many areas section size has a large factor to play in the design of your home. In many cases to achieve a functional home with all the elements you want you will have to go two storied. More so now with land sizes around Auckland getting smaller and smaller.
Subdivision Covenant rules.
Before purchasing land ensure you are familiar with the subdivision covenants as these rules may conflict with the type of design and style you want in your new home.
