Amazing home building experience

We built our house with Carlisle EasyLiving and our overall experience with them has been really great. The best part was that most home designs came with all the inclusions that you would normally require to live in a house, unlike other builders. The house was complete within 3 months, without compromising on the quality of the build. If I happen to build another house, I will not look for any other builder than Carlisle.

Positive experience with a reliable builder

Our experience with Carlisle is very positive so far. The moment we stepped into their display home, we knew it was the perfect house design for us, that was also within our budget. We are thankful for the team and support assigned to us - they're very patient in answering all our questions. Overall, the team from Carlisle delivers well and we are grateful that this experience has been very good and smooth for us.

Carlisle Homes redefined perfection!

From A to Z, Carlisle took care of things for me very well. I had complete peace of mind having them build my first home & I knew I was right! The colour selection process was smooth and the sales rep was very helpful and cheerful. I received a very high class build and after-build support was great too. I'd build with Carlisle again without a doubt!

There are a few things you can do to increase the amount of natural light in a narrow block design:

  • Skylights: Skylights are a great way to bring natural light into your home and make the most of a narrow block.
  • High Ceilings: High ceilings can also help to increase the amount of natural light in your home.

  • Glass Doors: Glass doors are a great way to let natural light into your home and create the illusion of space.
  • Alfresco Areas: Incorporating an alfresco area increases your home’s connection to the outdoors and allows natural light to filter through.
  • Open Plan Living Areas: Open plan living spaces are a great way to maximise space and increase natural light.
  • Vertical Gardens: Incorporating a vertical garden is a great way to add greenery to your home without wasting valuable space.
