Choosing the right neighborhood to build your home.
When it comes to building your dream home, there are some other considerations you need to take into account
- Type of people living in the area
- how close are the shopping centres
- How close are the schools if your planning on staying for awhile and having children.
- easy access to trades and plumbers
- Easy access to lawn mowing and garden maintenance people
- How long you plan to stay in the area
- Which is the best suburb for your build
- The weather
Is the house your going to build going to be your life long dream or is it a stepping stone to other properties.
When you build your home you need to take into consideration the distance you are from local amenities. If you are a long way from these things and you need any trades like plumbers, or roof tilers there can often be additional travelling fees associated for them to get to you. Give these guys a call to find out the cost of additional travel outside the metropolitan area.
Also being too far from the local shops if you urgently need supplies can be a drag as well. None the less something to plan for.
Of course trying to find out what other types of people are moving into the area or who are already there can be of great benefit. You might like to spend some time driving around the area, spend a few weeks driving in and around the locations.
Check out the local shops and ask around. Visit the local Malls and council offices to get a feel for the culture of the place. You might even like to visit some churches or sports clubs.
Plenty of sports clubs around.
- Swimming pools
- Golf clubs.
Walking tracks, National parks.
Depending on the location you are choosing, you may also like to go for walks in the national parks. See how far away these are from your suburb of choosing. Going on walks or hiking.

Here are some great pics of a recent hike some people from the Australia went on
This is in the vicinity of a number of new housing developments going up in Coomera and Upper Coomera Gold Coast Queensland.
IN this region for instance there are numerous open land areas, with extensive grass areas for family BBQs and fun days for the children. Plenty of open parks and plenty of theme parks which make it an ideal location to think about building your first home.
The weather is another important factor to consider in building your home. For instance if you don’t like storms then this might not be a good place for you. as the winter storms can be quite large and big with lots of lightning.
Having said that the overall temperature for this region hovers around 25 to 35 degrees Celsius. Sometimes the humidity can get you at around 100% bit drinking plenty of water can minimize the effects of this

What size tile you choose can give the feeling of space if large tiles are chosen. You can have have large diamond shaped tile in white. This looks great.
Additionally having large tiles with a border of small classy tiles around the egdes can give a a unique finish.
A person can be really creative in designing tile. In fact you could even use a theme around some broken tile and create shapes around them.
Choosing a style is dependent on you as the people creating the theme.
This can depend on what culture you are from.
What culture or them you want to create.
You might want to create a Tuscany feel to your tiling and flooring, or a beach theme.
Some theme design include dolphins actually in the tiles.
Of course you need to make sure the plumbing and pipes are all sorted before the tiles and flooring go in so make sure you double check with your plumber tradesman
