The Sunshine Coast is an ultimate holiday home destination known to many local and international people. Holiday homes are the ultimate getaway for family and friends, or can potentially be utilised for income generating rentals.
If you are currently considering building a holiday home on the Sunshine Coast – have a read through our tips to consider for design and layout:
MAXIMISE SECURITY AND CREATURE COMFORTS
Security in a holiday home can become a major factor – especially when staying in a foreign or new area. We offer security locks, and pin-pad devices unique to each user – for holiday home builds. Creature comforts will be another factor to consider when choosing a rental – or even for your guests. Ensure enough beds and sleeping areas have been accommodated for. Allowing space for two or more adults can provide opportunity for tenants to share costs and can be sufficient when allowing for extra family.
BUILD AND DESIGN TO THE CLIMATE
It goes without saying, the Sunshine Coast is located within a tropical and humid zone. Designing to the climate can be a very big factor, and can potentially save on electricity costs! Simple techniques such as placement and location on the land, addition of windows and roof types can play a big role in this.
FURNISH IT FOR THE AGES AND DURABILITY
If you are considering building a holiday home for rental, clean neutral and simple will always be the right decision. Let the location, and the building design do most of the speaking!
CHOOSE A LOCAL BUILDER
When making a decision with who to build with, you should consider a local builder who understand the local rules and regulations best. A local builder will also have better relationships with trades and suppliers – and understand site parameters and conditions much better.
Whether located along the beach, inland among the rainforest or close to town – a holiday home would be a wise and rewarding investment. Contact us today to discuss all of your options! View some of our most popular designs here.
