Why knockdown and rebuild new?

Don’t live in someone else’s dream home. Knockdown and rebuild in the location you love, with a home you’ll cherish forever. 
We are here to help you every step of the way.

Knock down rebuild cost efficiency

Using the latest materials, smart home technology and energy efficiency in a new home means you don’t ever have to worry about all the costs associated with old wiring, plumbing or power. Architecturally designed homes consider natural light, cross ventilation, solar and use materials to maximise the running of your new home, reducing maintenance and energy costs. 

The right floorplan for your needs

Old existing homes mean you may have to comprise on what you can achieve through renovations alone. The flow and layout of your home should suit you, your lifestyle, provide flexible spaces for growing families, maximise the orientation of your block and have the space to enjoy everything your want in life.

Live where you love

Your current home may not be right for you, but you love the location you live in. It’s close to work, schools and family and friends. You don’t have to move out of the neighbourhood you love, with a Knock Down Rebuild, you could be the envy of the street.

Renovation unknowns

Renovating an old house can uncover some nasty unknowns once you begin. Asbestos, rotting timbers, termites and old plumbing or electrical issues can turn it into a much bugger job than anticipated. Building new, means buying new, from the ground up. And best of all, you can enjoy all the building warranties that come with a brand new home to give you peace of mind into the future.
