As buyers react to the wide sprawl of Perth housing, and inner city councils work to draw in new buyers we are begining to see lot sizes getting smaller and smaller. This not only effects the ‘great Australian dream’ of a beakyard and a pool, there are major effects to the blue prints. One way buyers are combatting this is by building up.
Two stories have been on the rise, and plot sizes are to blame. It is the only alternate where families are finding the right location, and the functional space. Two story homes also provide a great oppertunity for smaller families to create their dream home experince, adding guest rooms and theatres, where they were not available before3.
