Since sloping land is different from flat lands, there are some rules that need to be while constructing on them.
First of all, it is very important to get a survey conducted on the land. This will determine the contour of the property. Having all the dimensions of the slope written down will help you avoid problems in the future. Moreover, it is essential to keep in mind that slope level changes are a big possibility when the structure starts to be built.
Furthermore, it is best to avoid selecting any home design that is made for flat lands. It would be better to only search through designs made for sloping hills. An advantage of making your customized house on a hillside is that you can make a unique house structure. Additionally, you get a lot of spectacular views from your windows. If you hire professional sloping block builders, the whole process will become easier.
You should only decide to have a single slab on the floor while constructing if the inclination of the slope is 7-40%. If the slope is a ratio of 1:5 or 4-120, then consider using 2 or more slabs. You should also keep the option of beam construction and part post/part slab open so that things work out perfectly.
If your slope is over 20-180, then you will need to build a pole construction. This will make the land stable and straight for construction.
You also need to consider the extra costs while building on a slope. This includes; excavation, consultations from professionals and retaining walls. There are a lot more things that have to be decided when building on a slope, but the process is easier when you have a group of professionals helping you out.
