Knock Down Rebuild

You live on the perfect piece of land. Big, wide, and right across the road from the park. It’s so good you often hear passers by comment on it. “Now that’s a block of land!” they say. Then they get a look at the shack that sits on top of it. Old, outdated and not making the street look particularly great.

But you put up with it, because the kids are going to school down the road, the neighbours are great, your friends are close by and it’s a stone's throw from everything you need.

So Why Not Knock Down Rebuild?

We can help you with the knock down, the rebuild and every step in between. You’ll be surprised how affordable and easy it is, with the added benefit of not having to move your life.

So don’t say goodbye to the location you love, say hello to a whole new way to live.

Knock Down Rebuild

Step 1

We assess your existing home and location using the information you have from your original purchase contract, and any previous tests and reports that have been conducted on your land. We then discuss any additional reports we may need to purchase.*

*We may be required to purchase reports for your block of land to determine building requirements.

Step 2

We work within your needs and budget to help you find the McDonald Jones architecturally designed home that fulfils your hopes and dreams.

We adjust the home options to fit the land, Complying Development Certificate (CDC) and Council Development constraints.

We complete an initial site inspection and you relax as we prepare a comprehensive, company-backed written quotation to give you confidence in taking the next step forward towards your dream home.

Step 3

We walk through the quotation with you and discuss the implications.

When you are satisfied with the quotation, you pay an acceptance deposit and are on your way to plan preparation, colour and inclusion selections.

After the Building Plans are approved and the demolition has taken place, the construction begins!
