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!

What are some benefits of building a wide-block home?

Some of the benefits of building a wide-block home include the following:

  • More space to work with – Wide blocks offer more space to work with, which means you can have a larger home ideal for growing families.
  • More privacy – A wider block typically provides more privacy from your neighbours.
  • Better light and ventilation – With more space comes better light and ventilation.
What should I look for in a floorplan with a wide block?

When looking for house plans for wide blocks, you should consider the following:

  • The orientation of the block
  • The size and shape of the block
  • Your budget
  • Your lifestyle needs
  • The type of home you want to build 

If you have a wide block, you will want to ensure that your house plan makes the most of the available space. You should also consider the orientation of the block and how this will impact the design of your home. Your budget is another important consideration, as well as your lifestyle needs and what type of home you want to build.
