Deciding whether to build a single or double storey house is one of the most crucial decisions you’ll face as a homebuyer. Depending on your personal situation and block, there can be both pros and cons to building either a single or double storey home.
For example, single storey homes are usually better positioned to take advantage of natural light and are generally easier for climate control. On the other hand, by building up, double storey homes are better for maximising space on small blocks and are easier to create privacy in as you can locate bedrooms on the upper floor and living areas on the lower floor.
The decision of whether to build a single or double storey home is entirely yours. If you’d like expert advice from a leading home builder on whether a single or double storey home best suits your block, contact Hallmark Homes to speak with one of our expert Sales Consultants.
We have specialist Colour Consultants who will personally guide you through this process. This takes place at our onsite Colour Selection Centre – ‘Select by Hallmark’ – which is located at our Head Office in Southport.
When you meet with your consultant, they will personally guide you to bring your dreams to life and answer any of your questions. Your Hallmark Homes Colour Consultant will ensure that everything you choose works together seamlessly, both inside and out.
Take a look at our 10 step building process, which outlines exactly what you can expect when you build with us.
Due to workplace health and safety regulations and the hazards associated with building a new home, it isn’t possible to visit the construction site unsupervised. However, if you need to visit the site, please contact your Supervisor to request a site visit at a mutually convenient time.
This is for your own personal safety and protection. We understand that your block is your property, however, for legal reasons, we’re obligated to control the construction site during the build process and control any hazards that may be present.
During the build process, a Hallmark Homes Building Supervisor will oversee all aspects of your new home construction. As soon as construction commences, you’ll be given your Supervisor’s mobile number so you can communicate with them directly. Throughout the build process, your Supervisor will contact you weekly to keep you up-to-date on the build.
We don’t assist with the knockdown of your existing home. However, we can build on your cleared block once the knockdown process is complete.
We love receiving feedback from past customers. It helps us become better at what we do. Please take a look at our Testimonials to find out why Hallmark Homes are the right home builders for your new home.
