Duplex Builders Brisbane

Duplex designs allow you to optimise the value of your land by occupying a single block with two connected houses. Due to the growing popularity of close-knit and compact living, particularly in urban locations, dual occupancy is a sensible method of ensuring maximum investment potential.

Duplex Home Design

Homebuilders will occasionally claim to have a set of standard duplex designs that can be applied to various parcels of land, but such blueprints are simply not possible. Building a property with two houses side by side has its own set of obstacles that aren’t common in single-family home designs.

Dual-occupancy homes necessitate a unique design solution that considers the style, size, and complexity of your land plot, as well as your property goals and financial limits. We’ll build you the best dual living home you’ve always wanted in close collaboration with our in-house design team.

The Advantages of Building a Duplex Home

The cost of constructing a stunning new duplex home in Brisbane is less than you might think, and the financial potential is very attractive. For investors, there are several important advantages to building a duplex home, including:

  • There are no common rooms or entrances, despite the fact that each unit shares a central wall. Each dwelling is fully separate from its neighbouring property, with its own utilities, bedrooms, yards, and, in most cases, garages.
  • Duplex housing offers excellent financial options, whether you want to build a duplex home and live in it while renting out the next property, or buy it simply as an investment with the goal of leasing both dwellings.
  • Better than a granny flat — when it comes to selling, duplex residences are often significantly more appealing to home buyers than a single-family property with a granny flat.
  • Strata title is optional — having no strata title allows you to earn more money from your rental property.

Is a Duplex Home Design Suitable for My Block of Land?

Before you consider having a duplex built, there are a few things to consider, such as:

  • Zoning restrictions in your municipality – your block of land must be greater than the minimum necessary.
  • Drainage – It must be proven that your site will not cause drainage or stormwater concerns.

To ensure that there are no misunderstandings about compliance standards, all local governments have building rules easily available for you to view.

The Best Way to Profit from Duplex Home Ownership

Multiple properties on a same piece of property will usually boost your equity. Creating subdivisions and building several low-maintenance homes opens up a slew of money-making opportunities, including:

  • Renting out each home to generate several streams of revenue
  • Sell each property outright for a large one-time profit.
  • Live in one home while selling the other.
  • To help pay off your mortgage faster, live in one property and rent out the other.

Single or Two Storey Duplex Homes?

Both single and double-storey duplexes have their own set of advantages and disadvantages. Single-storey homes are ideal for retirees or couples who don’t have children or whose children have grown up and moved away.

Families frequently choose single-storey homes since staircases can be difficult for newborns and younger children to navigate. Single-storey homes also have speedier construction times, which is a huge plus for people who want to move into their dream home sooner or just start benefitting from their investment sooner.

First and foremost, double storey duplex buildings conserve space, making them perfect for highly crowded areas as well as maximising your income return if you plan to rent your properties out. Aside from that, the extra floor affords superior vistas, and the top and bottom storeys might create a sense of privacy for parents with teenage children.

Advantages of Custom Designed Homes

You have a lot of options – with a project house, the construction process is quite rigid and leaves little possibility for customization. Those who want something that deviates even slightly from the pre-existing floor plans will quickly discover that doing so will result in a significant rise in the total cost.

However, with a custom made home, the freedom of choice is at the heart of the entire experience. You tell us what you want us to design for you instead of being shown the various designs. Our in-house staff is entrusted with transforming your ideas into a great, liveable new luxury abode, and your ideas and input impact the final home design.

Every aspect of your new home is up to you, including the architectural style (Contemporary, Art Deco, Edwardian, Georgian, Victorian, to name a few – the choice is yours), interior and exterior colour schemes (with expert guidance from our interior designer), lighting, layout, amenities, and everything in between.

They’re very reasonably priced — a project house may appear to be a great deal at first sight, but after optional extras are included in or floor plans are adjusted, expenses may spiral out of control. Buyers quickly realise that custom homes offer genuine value for money once they understand this.

We review your budget with you during your initial appointment with us and give you an idea of the size and quality of home you can expect to have built for you in your price range. We work on fixed-price contracts at Unique Built, which means the price you’re offered on the contract agreement will never alter unless you decide to make extra changes to your design at a later date.

Environmentally friendly design – while the bulk of the homes we build are on the larger side of the scale, we make sure that each one is eight-star energy efficient. Each home is outfitted with a variety of environmentally friendly features, including as rainwater harvesting systems and grey water recycling mechanisms, as well as high-quality insulation and building materials that improve comfort and reduce dependency on power-hungry electrical appliances.

The dwellings are cleverly designed to take advantage of the cool incoming air while also incorporating energy-saving lighting and energy-efficient appliances. All of these eco-friendly features contribute to a home that has a lower carbon footprint and saves you money on your energy bills.

"My wife and I recently had a custom home built here on the Gold Coast by Jim Taylor and his team at Unique Built. From the initial site inspection through to the final completion of the new residence, we found everyone to be very polite and professional to deal with, making the whole experience that much more enjoyable. The end result is nothing short of spectacular, and we wholeheartedly recommend them to everyone. We're looking to get another investment property built sometime later this year and will definitely be in touch with Jim and the team again for this project as well. Thanks again".

I was taken aback by the remarkable workmanship and pristine build quality of our new residence. The advice care and communication we received throughout the entire build has been exceptional. Our utmost gratitude and thanks to Jim and the rest of the team at Unique Built".
