The white space left inside your rectangle is the area you have to build on.
"This visual task is a great way to understand why deciding on a particular DualOcc option is often the last step in the planning process," Jarrod says. "Although you'll have plenty of fun making decisions down the track, it's important not to get fixated on a design upfront as this can end in disappointment.
"Being flexible with your expectations is the best way to ensure a successful outcome. Our team of experts at Metricon can help guide you through the planning process and choosing the best solution for your site, resulting in a beautiful design outcome that meets all requirements."
Why feasibility is important
Feasibility is another critical factor in the planning process and will impact the design you choose: do the numbers stack up?
"Feasibility means making sure your build plans make financial sense, not just meeting council requirements," Jarrod notes. "There's no point choosing a design then not being able to build it because of land restrictions or building costs."
