'Design your home to complement your land' is possibly the best advice that can be given to anyone about to embark on the road to new home ownership.

A significant trend seen today is to acquire a floor plan straight off the shelf, which is sometimes even chosen prior to the purchasing of land. The selected floor plan might meet the requirements of your lifestyle, but does it meet the requirements of your land?

A good design should allow the land to shape your home (making the most of its individual location), and not your home to shape the land. The land itself has long provided the inspiration of many incredible homes, as you can forever design a home to suit a landscape, but you may not be able to modify a landscape to accommodate the specifications of house plans. Designing your own home from a blank canvas is also the ultimate chance to create something that is completely designed around your own unique needs.
