Earth Moving – Eagle Bay
There are a variety of different types of ground you can encounter when building in Eagle Bay and it is a good idea to check what the ground type of the land you wish to buy in Eagle Bay before purchasing.
Some areas are sandy with good drainage whilst other ares can be gravelly with clay deposits, rocky or even have large deposits of Granite just below the surface. So be sure to check below the surface of the land for sale in Eagle before making plans to build you new luxury home. The costs of earthworks and the position you are left to build on are something very worthwhile when considering the total cost of you house and land venture. For instance, lets say you wish to build into a sloping north facing block, the surface of the block may look like an easy earth moving exercise, but sometimes there can be very large Granite deposits just below the surface that could greatly blow out your earthworks budget.

Fire Protection – Builders Eagle Bay Eagle Bay is in a valley surrounded by Class A Native Bush Reserves and large swaths of privately owned bush and farmland. When the Summer months come along the area is prone to bush fires. It does not take long for the bush to dry out in most parts of Western Australia during the summer months and Eagle Bay is no exception.
Careful planning of the location of your home site on your block is essential, the prevailing winds from the North, East and South reach strengths of up to 40 knots+ sometimes during the summer period. Combine strong winds, a dry bushland area and just one spark and Eagle Bay can become under threat of a bushfire very quickly.
