Sloping & Difficult Sites

Building on Sloping and Difficult Sites

Do you want the uninterrupted views and breezes of an elevated, sloping site but can’t envisage your home or how to build it? Sloping sites in North Queensland are synonymous with views, natural airflow, bush landscapes and our tropical way of life. Sloping sites means LIFESTYLE and at Cato Constructions that’s what we’re all about… Building your lifestyle. Building on sloping sites allows freedom in design as your home is built specifically for your site. We have project managed several constructions on sloping sites and guarantee we have the experience to build, renovate or extend your project successfully.

More Information

Pole Homes

Pole Homes offer a practical and stylish solution to building on sloping sites. They are timber homes constructed around thick timber posts that are secured with concrete footings.

They are built to the natural contours of the land thereby minimising site cutting, the need for retaining walls and their environmental impact. This usually means the home is split level with a sprawling, earthy appearance. From a building standpoint, constructing pole homes often means it cuts out common issues encountered with slab on ground homes on flat sites such as drainage, subsidence and termites.

Split level

Split level homes don’t have to spell rustic and natural as its environmentally friendly features suggest. Think large expanses of glass, skillion roof on a brick masterpiece. That could be your home. That could be your Castle. Call Cato Constructions today for a free quote.

Difficult Sites

Narrow and battleaxe blocks, tight turning circles from street to driveway, low overhead power lines on site, uneven terrain, low quality fill sites and dense scrub are all conditions Cato Constructions have worked with and ultimately mastered to give you the dream home you envisioned. If you feel you have the challenge of a difficult site on your hands and you want to turn it into your dream home, contact Cato Constructions to discuss how we can make this happen.
