With lot sizes in Perth’s new developments shrinking, home buyers are embracing the concept of building upwards as the cost-effective solution to maximise the space and make the most of their land.
One of the main advantages of building a two storey home in Perth’s new estates, is that it will allow you to take full advantage of your small or narrow lot, leaving enough room for a decent backyard or luxuries like swimming pools.
New home builders such as Express Living Homes are leading the way in building double storey homes using innovative lightweight technology and sustainable materials, which results in faster construction timeframes and affordable prices.
With the introduction of this new building method, building a two storey home in Perth is now within reach and a real consideration against the traditional, one storey homes.
Innovative lightweight technology
Express has invested in researching the best materials and construction systems to create two storey homes that are stronger and quicker to build.
Combining the TecBeam lightweight technology with conventional double brick construction, Express homes can be built within similar timeframes as a single storey home, and at a more affordable price than traditional two storey homes.
Effective zoning and expansive living
Two storey home designs provide more flexibility in terms of layout, which means you can have a better division of space in your home.
One of the biggest trends for double storey homes is the concept of ‘upper floor living’, which is becoming very popular in Perth – particularly in coastal suburbs. Here you can have your kitchen and main living areas upstairs, enabling you to maximise any potential views you have from your block.
Express has a clever two storey home design range that is exceptional in both zoning and expansive living. You have a choice of 10m through to 15m blocks with three or four bedrooms. To see a design that will suit you, view Express Two Storey Home Design Range here.
