How A site effects build cost
Services to site such as drainage, power and water will all need to be budgeted in the initial site visit and before we start the design process. The cost of these are widely varied depending on where your site is and how it has been developed- i.e., subdivision verse lifestyle property. The location of your section also affects cost, for instance high wind areas may require additional bracing, while sea spray zones will require robust materials to cope with this environment. A steep or sloping section is likely to cost more than to build on a flat site. Earthworks, retaining walls and piles can add a considerable sum to your site development budget before the house structure even begins. A sloping section may have a lower price tag but it may invariably cost you more in the long run. Its not all bad news for sloped sections though, as they can result in more unique architectural designs that work in with the site and allow views which are worth it.
