Top 3 Plans for Generation GenEsis

May 31, 2017

Call it the “lifestyle block backlash” or the revolt against spending all weekend maintaining the property but the housing trend towards less is more has already grown exponentially in global popularity. 


Why wouldn’t it? 

Without having to sacrifice much floor space and still having a desire for outdoor space TGA Homes have identified this housing trend where you can embrace the easy living mantra, free up some capital (i.e. enjoy the kids inheritance!) and where sustainability isn’t just a trendy catch phrase.


Maybe it’s been a dream to retire or even semi-retire earlier so why not take the opportunity to start thinking about all the options out there that can get you some cash back and most importantly; time back too?


Breaking your back all weekend can be exchanged for pottering around, walks and talks, coffee and cake, grandkids and memories and anything else you’d rather be doing.


Shop smarter not harder they say so here’s our top three home plan design picks for our generation GenEsis.


Plan design #1: The Fantail


Under the Fantail banner there are three exterior design styles to choose from – The Hip, The Gable or The Skillion.  That means you have three different design faces to explore while getting a versatile floor plan that works.   With extra bedrooms smartly placed away from the main bedroom suite this layout is perfect for privacy when friends want to come and stay (and let’s face it when you live in the Bay of Plenty that’s more common than not!) or for when the kids and grandkids head home for the holidays.

Plan design #2: The Ludlow 

 Maybe it was watching what’s happened during the global financial crisis that made us think outside the housing box but one things for sure planning for sustainability made us think more cost effectively and innovatively. 


The Ludlow plan design is our pick for sustainability; including clever design that give you the choice to shut separate wings off when needed; reducing heating costs in the winter yet the option to have everything wide open in the summer;. Double glazing is another must-have energy saving feature we include of course.


Having a slightly greener world view isn’t as new as maybe the younger generation thinks but who cares who came up with it?  It works!

Plan design #3: The Brighton

“Limitation breeds creativity” and The Brighton with a smaller floor plan of 160.35m2 was an excellent opportunity for the design team to focus on maximising space in every room. The Brighton puts every square inch to good use without adding un-necessary floor area.  


By removing additional corridors and Integrating the living space this clever home plan places the kitchen at the heart of the home while creating separate zones for rest and play.
