Whether you’re an investor or a first homebuyer looking for a little exibility, there are quite a few ways you can make more of your block and the building process. This page gives you an idea of the kind of projects B1 Homes can help you with.
The first thing you need to do when you’ve decided to build new, is get yourself a good building partner. We’d love to help and we’re well qualified to do so. After all we’re part of a group with over 25 years’ experience and a mountain of shiny building awards. So whether you’re building your very first home, considering a new home on your old block or looking at a dual occupancy project, we’ve got a lot of wisdom to share.
What exactly is a dual living residence? Simply put, it’s two homes in one house. They’re becoming a popular option in Perth because of the flexibility and investment opportunity they offer. So what can you do with a dual living property?
• Give adult children a bit of space
• Live near (but not with) extended family
• Live in one unit, rent the other
• Maximise returns by renting out both units
The reason we love dual living properties is that you can double the usefulness of a property without having to double the land size, or the building cost. The two dwellings make dual living a brilliant prospect for people who want to share the cost of the investment with friends or family. And in today’s housing market, anything that makes homeownership more accessible has got to be a good thing.
Block sizes keep getting smaller but your love of entertaining is growing, right? Our Manhattan- inspired 2 storey range is the perfect way to get a next-level lifestyle on a small block and budget. There’s plenty of reason to choose two storey living, especially when it’s delivered with such style.
• Two storeys can double your living space without doubling the home’s footprint
• Two storeys make the most of views on offer
• Upper East Side style will impress family and friends
Soaring ceilings over 5 metres high, highlight windows that ood towering exposed brick walls with natural light and a super-functional open plan kitchen, it’s two storey living that lets you stretch out without stretching the budget.
With state and local governments keen to encourage urban infill, battle-axe blocks are becoming easier to approve. What’s a battle-axe block? It’s a potential homesite behind another house. If you’re thinking about building on one, you’ll need driveway access and enough land to build on. (The team at B1 Homes can let you know what is and isn’t possible.) Battle-axe blocks can be an investor’s dream. You end up with two separate properties and a whole lot of options:
• Live in one and rent the other
• Rent out both and maximise the return
• Sell one and pay off a chunk of your home loan
• Sell both and reinvest the profit
We’ve got dozens of home designs to suit blocks of all shapes and sizes, and understand the shire approval processes. So if you want to build a home behind a home, we’re behind you.
