The very nature of building on a sloping block means you will nearly always need to go for a custom designed floor plan. A sloping block can be very difficult to build on. Even a gentle slope can be a challenge. As a rule; the steeper your block the more complex the building will be. A house designed for a steep site will be heavily engineered. Building on a sloping block will require more materials and the home will usually be much larger than one built on a slab.
To minimize costs you should always appoint a designer that is experienced in sloping block design. Failure to properly address the fall of your land in your design can be the difference between an affordable home and very expensive one.
