Renovating Your Existing Home vs. Looking for a New Home Builder

Renovating Your Existing Home vs. Looking for a New Home Builder

Wondering whether to knock down and rebuild or renovate your existing home?

We at Parkvuehones often get asked by homeowners whether we think they should renovate their existing home or build new. The answer, of course, depends on your unique situation, your financial goals and future plans. The important thing is to consider what each path offers.

You should start by considering the home’s intended use. What sort of living areas do you need to fit your lifestyle? How much room do you need? If you have specific ideas, now is the time to bring them out. Once you have the answers to these questions, dig into the structural soundness and health of the foundation as much as you can. If the foundation is cracked or the frame of the house is compromised, there is little use in spending a lot on renovations. Depending on the type and amount of damage, you may find demolishing the existing house and rebuilding to be a better choice.

After every angle has been taken into consideration, how much will the renovation cost in the long and short term? More specifically, is it worth the cost compared to simply building from the ground up?

In the end, your needs, situation, and budget help you make your final decision. We at Parkvuehomes are always there to guide you step by from planning to construction. The wish for a home that is built precisely to your desires can push the decision towards a new home builder.

If you need help weighing your options, please feel free to reach out to our team. We are always here to help!

How to build energy efficient custom homes?

How to build energy efficient custom homes?

Going green can sound a little intimidating to some homeowners. With so many eco-friendly options to choose from, it can be hard to know where to begin. Here are some green suggestions on how to build energy efficient custom homes.
This goes for people already settled into their home as well as those working on home construction.
No matter which stage you’re at, you can help the environment with simple, effective changes. You just need a little push in the right direction.

Get on the Roof
Is the roof over your head just providing shelter or making a difference? Use it to make your home more energy efficient with the help of solar panels. Solar panels take in energy from the sun to fuel the electrical systems inside the house. They bask in as much light as they can from the roof and then distribute the energy they consume. Solar panels can cost a bit to install. But they are worth every penny in the long run.

Work on Your Windows
When thinking about how to build an energy efficient home, consider upgrading your windows. As windows age, so do their moulding. Old moulding cracks the insulation, meaning more air is getting out and coming into your home. Such a change in the regular flow of things can cause havoc with your HVAC. Keep everything under control with upgraded windows. Some are even meant to work better in certain weather conditions. For example, if you see a lot of cold weather, look for windows that insulate heat to stay inside the home. It can ease your heating system’s workload, saving a significant amount of energy and money.

Change the Lighting
Incandescent light bulbs take up more energy than you might think. Instead of opting for these outdated fixtures, use LED or CFL bulbs instead. These bulbs are made with energy efficiency in mind. They tend to be stronger and last longer, all while cutting your energy consumption significantly.

Plant More Trees
Sometimes, understanding how to build an energy efficient home has less to do with the house itself and more with the landscape. Try planting more trees and shrubs around the yard. These will offset the energy you use inside.
One way the balance is achieved is through shading. Shading casts a shadow over certain areas of your home to help windows and HVAC systems do their job with less energy. It works in the summer as well as the winter.
Windbreaks are another benefit of better landscaping. They reduce the speed of wind that hits your home - the lower the speed, the better insulated everything will be.

5 benefits of building custom homes

5 benefits of building custom homes

Building a home means much more than just building a house. Building a home means building a peaceful sanctuary, a place where you will go at the end of the day to forget about your stressful job, create memories with your loved ones, and hang out with friends.
That’s why your new home has to be special. It has to meet your every need and reflect your individual taste.

Here are five reasons why you should consider building a custom home.

  1. You Get Exactly What You Want
    The biggest advantage of having your home custom built is that you have the ability to get exactly what you want. You’re the one who gets to choose everything from the layout to the colour of paint on the walls, what kind of taps you want, how many lights you want in each room and the type of kitchen appliances you want installed.

  2. You’re In Complete Control
    When you build your custom home, you’re the one who’s in complete control. It’s your call when it comes to making every decision that affects your house. A great custom home builder will be able to guide you when you need help making your decisions, but the final outcome is always within your control.

  3. You Can Plan For The Future
    If you choose to build a custom home, you’ve got a great opportunity to design a house that could not only be your home for the next few years, but one that could be your family home for decades to come. Incorporating clever design features that allow the home to be just as suitable for your family in the coming years as it is now means that you’ll be reaping the rewards of your initial investment not just now, but in the future as well.

  4. You Can Choose Unique Finishes
    Custom building your own home makes it easy to integrate unique features into the house during the planning and design phase. By doing a custom build, you can feel free to design your living room around a piece of heirloom furniture passed down through generations or integrate interesting building materials from an ancestral home, like a brick accent wall. The options are limitless.

  5. You Will Get The Most From Your Block
    The design of your home and the features of your block need to work together. If your land and your house design aren’t made to match it can mean you end up with wasted space outside the home or an unusually shaped front or back yard. By designing a custom home and floor plan that works with the slope, shape, and orientation of your block, you’ll not only create a beautiful home for your family but have the best opportunity to create the perfect garden as well.

Future-Proofing Your New Homes Construction With Flexible Spaces

The past few months have seen us spend a great deal of time indoors and locked in our houses. Many of us spent the time in lockdown working from home, leaving us plenty of time to think about the tweaks and changes we’d make to our homes if we had the chance. Building a new home gives you the opportunity to design things exactly as you want them, specifically suited to your family and lifestyle.

One of our most popular requests when finding or creating the perfect house plan for our customers is for a ‘flexi-room’ – an extra room that can be transformed throughout different life stages, from an exercise room to a playroom to a home office. So as you embark upon your home construction journey, read on to learn our top tips for making the most of a flexi-room.

FURNITURE
Invest in smart pieces of furniture for your flexi-room, like a fold-away wall bed, built-in bay window or a sofa bed, and an adjustable desk that could be used for crafts or as a TV stand. Make sure your choices fit the space, and don’t use huge furniture in a small room.

SMART THINKING
If you want to use your flexi-room as both a home office and a media room, consider using a smart TV as your computer monitor, or invest in a large computer screen that can double as a TV screen and place a couch in view of the screen. Vertical space can be cleverly used for shelving or extra storage, and an inbuilt study nook could be converted to a closet later down the track.

THINK LONG TERM
You may be a young couple wanting to use your flexi-room for exercise or a second lounge, or a potter needing space to make their latest creations, but if kids are in the pipeline, you might want the flexibility to turn the room into a nursery, playroom, study or guest bedroom as your children grow. Think long-term before making any big decisions such as wall coverings and design, and ensure you think about the possible resale of your home, and what future buyers will be looking for.

LAYOUT
If the room is being used for two things at once (both a spare bedroom and a study), consider your furniture size and layout carefully to ensure one function doesn’t impede on the other. Think about whether you need to build in a cupboard to add extra storage to your home, or to store toys and crafts depending on how you intend to use the room.

Add extra value to your Home Construction

Add extra value to your Home Construction

If you’re thinking of building a new home, start with the end in mind. Even if you plan on staying forever, create it with the type of function that appeals to everyone (well, lots of people). So, if life circumstances change and you need to sell, you can sit back and enjoy the frenzy as buyers scramble for the highest bid!

When looking at adding value to our home, we can look through two different lenses: homeowner or investor. To maximise the potential of our home, we want to include things that attract both homeowner and investor. After all, you never know who your buyer will be – but you do know you want someone that is willing to pay the highest price!

Look at the averages in your neighbourhood
Take a look at around your neighbourhood and see how many parking spaces, bedrooms and bathrooms most nearby homes have. These numbers set a standard for the market in your suburb. Make sure you match or better these numbers so that your house is as attractive as possible to any potential buyer.

Savvy street appeal
Make your home super-attractive from the get-go. No one wants to apologise for their home, pleading with visitors that it gets better inside! When building a new home from scratch, plan an attractive frontage for your home, using striking materials, contrasts and garden areas. At Parkvuehomes, we’ve created a collection of home designs exactly with this in mind.

Think sustainable living
Environmental problems are not going away anytime soon! Consequently, sustainable living and eco-friendly homes are a must. Ignore sustainable living and passive design principles, and you may have a very hard time selling your home.

Create a striking entrance
The entrance to your home is the beginning of an emotional journey, so make sure it’s a good one. Your entrance should be clean, uncluttered, inviting and (preferably) striking.

Create at least one standout feature
Put some effort into this! There are plenty of boring houses on the market, but if you want someone to buy your home at the maximum price, make them want to do – and pay – whatever it takes to get their hands on it. If you can’t come up with any ideas yourself, consult with professionals that can. It’ll be well worth the effort. In the meantime, think of the following:
• Is there an amazing view? If a view is not obvious, maybe you could discover one if you built up a floor?
• Turn something boring into something amazing – think of a side fence, wall or laneway that can be cosmetically enhanced through the right materials (think planking, brickwork or even paint) for massive appeal.
• Have a swimming pool? Pay a lighting designer top dollar to give you amazing visual appeal at night.
• What about the garden? If your garden plans are a bit ho-hum, again, pay for a landscape designer to come up with some amazingly inventive plans destined to give your home that wow factor – and get people talking.

Go nuts with storage
Everyone wants loads of built-in storage. Let’s face it, it’d be hard to have too much of it, especially with today’s smaller homes built on narrow or small blocks, so build it in.

Include a fantastic kitchen
It’s been said many times – people want great kitchens. And kitchens add serious value to your home. Even if you’re not big on cooking, remember that a lot of others are. Make your kitchen big, or at least big-ish! Include space for cooking and incorporate as many timeless, good-quality appliances as possible. And, make sure your kitchen is a joy for entertaining. Position it close by to alfresco areas, make it attractive and inviting, and consider some welcoming inclusions such as an island bench and barstools.

Benefits of Choosing a Townhouse Development

Benefits of Choosing a Townhouse Development

Townhouse living is gaining popularity by the day in Australia with many advantages including affordability, low maintenance and modern designs in convenient locations that appeal to a wide range of buyers, including First Home Buyers, investors, downsizers and families. Whether you’re interested in getting a foot in the market, looking for a smaller design or love the idea of a vibrant new community with modern conveniences, without scarifying space and style - this blog explains the benefits of buying a townhouse and the opportunities you get with townhouse living.

VALUE FOR MONEY
Townhouses are a more affordable, family friendly option rather than going for a detached house with a backyard. With more space than an apartment, Townhouses are compact yet spacious. You can buy two or three-bedroom townhouses that are much cheaper than a detached house as they’re built on compact lots with no dead space and a shared wall. The saving is what makes Townhouse living so popular. With the amount of space you get, Townhouse living is a cost-effective option for a whole host of buyers.

LOW MAINTENANCE
Townhouses may be even more appealing for those who aren’t a huge fan of gardening. Most New Developments Townhouses include a spacious outdoor courtyard requiring less upkeep while still offering enough room for outdoor entertaining with friends and family, keeping pets or just enjoying a peaceful cuppa in the morning sun!

AMENITIES
Save money and be close to the action – that sounds pretty good! Townhouses are built within thriving communities that are just a hop, skip and a jump from parks, schools, shops, cafe’s, restaurants and public transport; offering convenience and flexibility for you and your family. There’s no need to sacrifice your lifestyle when buying a townhouse, plus there’s other benefits such as future growth opportunities including career and financial growth.

SENSE OF COMMUNITY
Living in a townhouse will give you the opportunity to make new friends, young and old. Townhouse living allows you to truly get to know your neighbours and create a sense of community. It’s nice to know you can rely on them for a favour or organise weekend drinks in the courtyard. There’s something nice about being a part of a townhouse community, where new friends are just a stone’s throw away.

FUNCTIONALITY
Don’t be fooled, you’ll be amazed at the amount of space you can achieve with townhouse living. Modern floor plans with open plan living spaces and generous master bedrooms that reflect the spaces you’ve come to love in our Brighton home designs. The layouts in a townhouse are perfect for busy young professionals, small families, retirees, first home buyers and investors. Townhouses are roomy and have plenty of natural light with cleverly placed windows that allow you to let life in with a flow that instantly makes you feel at home.

STREET APPEAL
Townhouses have serious street appeal, with striking facades that will turn the heads of those in the neighbourhood. Admire these modern facades in your front outdoor living area and smile at the passers-by who have serious street envy. The great thing is, each townhouse will have a consistent run of eye-catching facades, each complementing the next; all with the same colour scheme, landscaping and latest exterior trends.

How Do Home and land packages Australia Work?

How Do Home and land packages Australia Work?

What Is a Home and Land Package?
A home and land package typically involves working with a respected home building contractor who combines the land and New Homes Construction purchase into a single price. Typically, you work with a builder who can offer a range of home and land and different options. Working with them, you can select a home and, sometimes, also certain special features. The appeal of the package comes in its enhanced convenience and, occasionally, even a lower price than some alternatives.

How Will House and Land Packages Offer More Convenience?
Buying land and building a home, or fixing up an existing home to meet your needs, are both complex endeavours. Each involves working with multiple entities and keeping track of a lot of moving parts. You benefit from added convenience because we take care of the details. You get a single price for the entire project that requires a single loan to cover building and site costs. Our team works with you to offer a number of possible design features.
We also make sure that all elements of the project abide by applicable laws and regulations.

Will They Cost Less Than Other Options?
When you price a home and land package and compare it to other options, you may be pleasantly surprised at what you find. First, these packages are usually better deals than purchasing an existing home of similar size. The difference lies in the dreaded stamp duty. Buying property that no land developer has touched ensures that you pay far less in duties than you would if the house was already there. Home construction and land packages can come in different types, depending on budget and how many personal touches you need to be included in the home. Standard packages provide a move-in ready home, but with few extra amenities. You may also save on your down payment. Those buying a home for the first time should check out national or state/territory-based programs that can help make the home and land package affordable. Home grant loans, first-time buyer programs, special offers for servicemen, and other schemes can help make the purchase more affordable.

How Should You Choose a House and Land Package
Your builder can offer a wide range of potential home and land combinations. Some clients get quickly overwhelmed by the full array of choices available to them. It helps to look at selecting a home and land package purchase as a multi-step process. First, put together a reasonable budget for the purchase. What can you afford to pay for the entire property? What monthly payments can you handle? Your builder may suggest using a mortgage broker to figure out the best deal possible for your financial situation. Those who need to improve their credit can count on advice from the broker on what they need to do to save money. Once you receive a pre-approval, you can start working with the builder to determine what style of home and which features you will want or need. Make sure that you evaluate the area closely. Consider the quality of schools, commute times to work, the condition of the neighbourhood, and other important issues.
