Eight’s enough for small lots

Eight Homes maximises space in homes on small blocks while streamlining the building process.

Eight Homes has devised the ideal solution for the small-lot housing code.

The builder’s 21 by Eight Homes is designed for efficiency and affordability while making the process of building on small blocks easier than ever.

The range features four single and four double-storey designs, all suited to 21m-deep lots with widths from 10.5m to 14m.

Each home in the range cleverly maximises allotment space, giving families they space they need.

The company uses a “quick and streamlined” eight-step process to make the building process hassle-free, says Eight Homes state sales manager Luke Veith.

“We take the hard work out of selecting what is important to you by providing an efficient process so more value goes into your home and not into administration costs,” Mr Veith explains.

“Simply select your home, choose from the great range of options, and select your colour scheme from the pre-determined colour boards prepared by their interior design experts and they will take care of the rest.

“We’ll help fast-track your build with a minimum of time and fuss to get you and your family into your new home.”

Eight Homes’ detailed understanding of the small-lot house code underpins the efficiency of the company’s building process.

“The small-lot housing code was designed to accelerate development of smaller houses to support the increased number of smaller families, single person households and general affordability,” Mr Veith says.

“The code is simply a set of design standards that eliminates the need for a planning permit, which is typically required for lots under 300sqm. This significantly decreases the approval time and cost to build.

“The standards include specific requirements relating to setbacks, building height, provision for car spaces and private open space, overlooking, overshadowing and building articulation.”

Mr Veith says 21 by Eight Homes also has applications beyond small allotments, particularly for families wanting more yard space.

“This range is also the perfect solution for those wanting to maximise their backyard space by building a shorter home on a larger block,” he says.
