The best projects always take their surroundings into account. A building really needs to be aware of the space in which it stands, particularly when that space is the bush lands around Mount Buffalo.
We had a client come to us who wanted to build a simple, small home on their forest property. They had already consulted with designers and architects, so they were able to give us a very detailed idea of what needed to be built.
We worked with those ideas to find the most practical, most efficient and highest quality way to build their dream building.
The project came together perfectly. What we like most about the home is its long, thin layout. The length of the building against the gentle slope of the ground gives the elegant impression that the building has been nestled into its beautiful surrounds.
5 Things to Know Before Building an Indoor Riding Arena
1. Know what you want to build.
The first thing you need to know is what your building will look like. Do you plan on having a stable complex built in? Will your indoor be full sized or will it be smaller? Will you need to have large vehicle access?
2. Know your site.
Where is your indoor going to be built? You need to find a location that is accessible, has good drainage, and has enough space to build.
If you know which builders you’re going to use, work with them. They will be able to develop your idea into detailed plans and can put together concept drawings for you.
3. Design your indoor.
This is part of the fun; you need to design exactly how you want your indoor arena to look. This includes everything from the floor-plan to the colour of the roofing.
4. How are you going to clear the site and lay your base?
Before you can start building your indoor, you need to level the ground and lay your arena footing. Most indoor builders will be able to refer you to someone who can do this for you.
5. Check out other indoors first.
The surest way of getting what you want is spending time on other indoors. Take note of what it’s like to be in them, & ride in them. Ask the owner what they like & what they wish they had done differently. This kind of research will ensure that you end up with an indoor you’re happy with.
