What Is Zero Lot Boundary?

When looking at floor plans for new homes, you may notice that some designs refer to a “zero lot boundary” footprint. But what does that mean and is it applicable to your house or land?

Zero lot boundary refers to a structure being built up to or very near the edge of the owned land (the boundary line). Architects work on zero boundary floor plans to maximise liveable space and adapt to areas where there are high-density populations. It allows for a larger number of residents in a desirable location. For this reason, zero lot homes are becoming increasingly popular.

Homes with zero boundaries tackle the issue of land availability and allow homeowners an opportunity to build a home that is more affordable because it involves less material and therefore less cost. This is an attractive solution for investors as well, as it yields rent that is affordable to tenants. Not to mention, these modern homes have little maintenance to worry about due to minimal landscaping around the perimeter.

So how is zero boundary achieved? By drafting a footprint that encapsulates as much of the property as possible, builders make innovative changes to an otherwise traditional floor plan. Zero boundary homes typically have fewer walls and are narrow in design. In order to facilitate to Council guidelines and many new areas around New South Wales, New Living Homes already has a range of zero boundary home designs in our Metro Range.

The idea behind this range is to offer people a cost-effective solution that doesn’t compromise a desirable home design that is comfortable and modern. Some may perceive a zero boundary home too tight for comfort, but on the contrary, these homes are designed to maximise the use of land space for as much luxury as a traditional home. Features include fully functioning designer kitchens, bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, separate laundry rooms and even alfrescos.

If you are unsure about a lot of land and what type of home it is suitable for, speak to someone from the New Living Homes team. By checking the exact measurements and total width of your block, our experts will be able to advise you on a zero lot home that will fit your land purchase and suit your family’s needs. At New Living Homes, we also have a wide range of House & Land Packages that make choosing a zero lot home even easier. Book an appointment with us or call 1300 366 766 for more information.


Building a New Living Home has given me confidence that I can easily embark on building a home rather than buying a place, and get a better house/ home rather than a small flat. But you have to choose a builder that KNOWS how to build, that builds exactly how the design dictates. A builder who can deliver what they say, when they say. A house that won’t look daggy in years to come is important too, and New Living Homes did just that. The overall investment has worked out well too, growing in value is a short period of time.


”The idea of our brand new home is still really sinking in as we never dreamt of building or ever own. A VERY big thank you to New Living Homes for giving us a brand new home! You’ve made our dreams real!”- Grevillea 4.1, Elegance Facade

I love that my new home is mine!!!! There is nothing I don't love about it. The finishes are great and it is just perfect! I love showing it off to people and all of my friends and family love it and always compliment the design and workmanship.

‘’From the very beginning, our experience with New Living Homes has been nothing but amazing. From our very first meeting at Spring Farm, to the accounts team, to the pre-construction team, and our Construction Manager on site, nothing was ever an issue, or a question too stupid’’.

Rebecca & Steve - Jordan Springs 

‘’I have been extremely happy with my experience with New Living Homes and have told anyone and everyone about our build. Everything went smoothly and yes there were a few problems but our site manager sorted them out as quickly as he could.. Throughout all the build, nothing was too much trouble for our site manager’’

After hearing some horror stories of people building their homes we were fairly nervous to see how it would all
unfold however from the very first dealing with New Living Homes we could not fault a single thing. I would like to
give special mention to Emma from the Brooks Reach Display who was very accommodating with us pestering her
with what seemed like every week as we would be checking different things in the display home.

My experience was excellent. This was the second house I have built in 4 years and the whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish. All of the sales team were very helpful and very responsive to each and every enquiry I had.

Building with New Living Homes has been a pleasant and enjoyable journey so far, and we know we have Sandra to thank for this. Her customer service is second to none, and has made all the difference in building this time round. My husband and I just wanted to make sure recognition and praise was given where it is due. Thanks again for everything Sandra! We are looking forward to more builds with NLH.

I always thought that building a house in Australia would be a nightmare like everyone told me but it was more than a pleasure as I was never troubled about anything. The process was as smooth as a butter.

Thank you guys, its because of your amazing team work, good flow of communication and the zeal to work hard to let people achieve their dreams, has gotten us what we really wanted. -
