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 in terms of foundations and steel fabrication. 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. For more information on building designers read our article Architect or Building Designer. Building on a steep block can produce a spectacular one off individual home. It can also end up being a nightmare if the wrong team is appointed to design and build your house.
