What's the largest house plan that will fit on my block?

  • Article by: Samara Amadi @ homeshelf

The size of your block will determine major factors in your build, like the size of your home and your ability to have a yard and other outdoor features. Most builders will typically have standard plans ready for various block sizes so you can get a sense of what’s possible. If you're building in a land estate, builders are familiar with the typical setbacks required and can assist you in working out how to maximise your space.

Here's a list of the maximum home sizes (single & double storey house plans) that will fit on standard land estate block sizes in Australia.

The home sizes take into account the standard setbacks on most estate blocks. Sizes may vary a little, but it's a good guide.
