Your narrow builder specialist.

Indigo Homes are experts and pioneered Narrow Lot homes in South-east Queensland, with several awards pertaining to small lots under our belt to attest to this. 

We understand that while the block may be smaller, the livability shouldn’t be. We focus on making the most out of every inch, nook and cranny in our designs to avoid any wasted space.

On top of this we use every trick to make the space flow and feel open and inviting while providing privacy from your neighbours and retreats internally for when you want your own space.  

If you’re a bit unsure of what building on a Narrow or Small lot entails and the best ways to take advantage of it, we have written a “Small lot Home Guide – Living large while building small”  for you to view.

Due to being in this area of construction for a substantial time, we have designed and refined a wide range of narrow lot designs for you to view.

Avoid the common narrow lot mistakes and save yourself thousands of dollars.

A small lot is any block of land with 10m or less frontage or less than 450m2, with the exception being battle-axe lots which can be up to 600m2 and still be considered a small lot. Most subdivided lots are considered a small lot.

Many small lots have a large amount of infrastructure built around them as they’re in inner-city locations or newer suburbs. It’s a great way to have a city lifestyle or start becoming part of your local community.

You will have more time to enjoy your new lifestyle as your home will require less maintenance or upkeep in your day to day life.

This depends a lot on your desired block of land as each block will have different requirements and variables that we need to address. However, generally, any floorplan with a 10m or less frontage is acceptable.

It really comes down to your block of land and location. Provisions for site access, traffic control, retaining, and more can add additional costs. However, with a preliminary assessment we can determine any additional costs. You can relax knowing what to expect throughout the building process.

It’s as easy as contacting the office directly or filling out our Contact Us form on our website. One of our friendly and helpful team members will get in touch with you to discuss your requirements and give you useful information and guidance. You can also download our Small lot e-book as an initial guide to get you started.

Building your own home allows the opportunity for you to create a space that is unique to your style and needs. Not only will you have a beautifully personalized home, you will have the freedom to decorate it as you choose because you own the home! Whereas with townhouses or apartments, you may not own the full block only having a share in the land, if you own it at all. You may also have additional costs including body corporate fees. Houses generally appreciate more than either townhouses or apartments meaning while they can be initially more expensive, they give a larger return in the future.
