As Australian cities and towns become more and more populated, the housing needs in these places grow proportionately. This is especially apparent in areas around Brisbane CBD. However, the number of affordable houses that are available falls far short of meeting this rising demand for homes. The resulting shortage of available land space for housing has led to an increase in real estate prices, which is disproportionate to the average wages. This has become the cause of a major affordability crisis in areas close to the CBD like Logan, Springfield, Brisbane, and Redland Bay.

With the race for available land at an all-time high, several folks have started sourcing and living in properties built on narrow fronted blocks, some even below 10 m in width. This is now raising worries among house owners about housing solutions in their narrow lot that can fully utilise the available space. However, block width and narrow blocks are not a concern if you rely on clever and affordable design.

Narrow lot house plans must be cleverly designed to make maximum use of the small land space to build beautiful and functional residences. INH Brisbane overcomes the hurdles presented by narrow blocks by incorporating design ideas like split levels, varying roof heights, using different facade treatments and well planned clever room layouts, etc. Our expertise and several years of experience in building on narrow blocks enable us to use every bit of space, or include features like office nooks, and living areas that help to maximize the functionality of the spaces.

The easiest solution to this problem is to build a narrow but tall house. For instance, a two-storey house that takes up only half the land of a normal house. This is an excellent way to incorporate more built living space into a limited block of land. Moreover, less expensive narrow lots can be made into habitable plots with this approach. For those with an eye on investment, there is also the option to build a multi-storey duplex instead of a single-family house. Then you can rent out one or both of the units to achieve maximum returns from the investment made on a narrow block. This makes the construction more affordable over a period of time.
