Sloping Block ‘Pole Homes’

House on sloping block

When designed correctly, sloping blocks normally mean beautiful ‘views and decks’. When it comes to designing your new home, designing one that works with the slope will reduce the high levels of excavation and retaining walls required in order for you to maximise those views. (Put in link to designing your perfect home.)

Kline Homes have spent years perfecting our steel frame system and no other company does what we do.  We have been able to keep building costs down and give owners more.

Designing and building homes on sloping blocks requires real skill and attention to detail. With over 20 years’ experience in designing homes for sloping sites, we understand the careful consideration required pertaining to drainage and soil retention, driveway access, height restrictions, retaining walls, maximising views to name a few.  By working with the unique slope of your block and designing a home that works with the slope, you can reduce the need for excavation and retaining walls.

Whether you have a block that slopes 1 meter or 12 meters, your new home will be designed to suit your family’s individual lifestyle requirements. We offer a personalised service, which we believe, is second to none. Our ‘one stop shop’ service provides you with teamed skills of Building Designers, Interior Designer and Builders all under the one roof.  Our Green Smart accreditation considers your solar orientation, the views and the prevailing breezes.  We want to warm your home naturally in winter and keep it cool in summer to create an energy efficient, environmentally responsible home.

“Our specially designed steel frame system took years to develop through trial & error in our pursuit to develop a cost efficient unique building system that leaves our competitors speechless”.

Sloping Block Home

Kline Homes have been architecturally designing quality homes for over 20 years, accredited “Green Smart Professionals” ensures clients the confidence their home will be designed to suit the orientation of the land. “Square pegs, don’t always fit in round holes.”

Kline Homes will design to your budget.  Architects and drafts-people don’t always know building costs or the building processes.  The life of a designer is spent in an office unlike a builder who’s onsite making sure everything goes together properly. Builders price each job meticulously and it’s this intimate knowledge and attention to detail that ensures your home will be built within your budget.  I have personally seen many architecturally designed homes go way over budget that causes heartache, stress and unfinished homes.
