5 Common Mistakes When Building an Acreage Home

Acreage homes have much more space and privacy, making them a popular choice for Australian families. If you’re considering hiring acreage home builders, you have a lot to think about, as far as what kind of house and design features you want. At the same time, you should avoid some common mistakes for the smoothest build process. Here are the top five mistakes to keep in mind when building an acreage home, from the experts in home building here at Enso Homes.

Impulsive Land Choice

First things first, take your time deciding on which lot may be best for acreage homes in Geelong. You may want to jump at the first deal you see, but you should explore your options and make sure the lot and land make sense for you and your loved ones. Consider your daily commute, local schools, nearby shops, and surrounding amenities, when picking where to build an acreage home.


Too Many Opinions

Keep in mind the importance of making your own decisions, with the help of your builder or designer. The more voices that are involved, the more likely there are to be disagreements and delays. The more you can trust your acreage home builders, the easier the process will be, as you can follow your instincts and make design decisions without too much background noise.


Overlooking Functionality

It’s easy to get distracted by trendy elements in luxury acreage home designs, but you should always go back to functionality. Structural features that protect the integrity of your home and floor plans that make sense for everyday life should be a top priority when designing acreage homes.

Misused Space

Building an acreage home is an opportunity to make the most of a bigger lot. Speak to your builder about using the space wisely, such as extending your home to add more bedrooms or bathrooms or creating your dream backyard with an outdoor kitchen or pool.

Cutting Corners

Lastly, cutting corners with the wrong builder won’t do you any favours. If they promise you the world but don’t have the portfolio and testimonials to back them up, proceed with caution. Read reviews, schedule consultations, and take your time choosing the best acreage home builders, Geelong has to offer.
