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.

Frequently asked knockdown rebuild questions
Building a new home is a rewarding experience. In among all the excitement there are big decisions to make and many choices to consider, so it’s natural you will have lots of questions along the way.
At McDonald Jones, we do everything we can to make the process easy for you – after all, we’ve been building beautiful, architecturally designed homes for more than 30 years, and we know how to make your knock down rebuild journey as simple and seamless as it can be.
This decision really comes down to three key factors - the condition of your home, your budget and the cost to create what you want and need. Depending on the size of your renovation, a knock down rebuild is generally far more cost effective and the return on investment is generally better. A KDRB offers you a completely new home from the ground up, which suits your every need vs a home with new features and retrofitted to suit only some of your needs.
As soon as you know you want to knockdown rebuild, get in touch with us! The sooner you start planning - the better. Our team of experts can help guide you and provide all the technical advice you need to get your home started and also help minimise downtime and keep your new home moving.
Renovating an old home can uncover some pretty nasty, and costly, surprises that may end up hitting your budget harder than you think. The great thing about a completely new home is that you get to select absolutely every aspect of your new home and ensure that the design, floorplan, and style are absolutely what you want for your home. Plus, you get the added benefit of all the new home warranties that come with a brand new home, giving you extra peace of mind for years to come.
One of our Knockdown Rebuild Specialists will visit the site to check the suitability of your land. This includes accessibility for trade deliveries, the slope of the site, traffic, schools, neighbouring lot conditions etc. There are numerous things we must consider for example, is electricity underground or overhead?
Knockdown rebuild is often less expensive per square metre than renovating and you get a brand new home, exactly the way you want! Most people choose to finance a knockdown rebuild using a construction loan. These loans are specifically designed to provide finance in a way that matches the milestone requirements during the construction process. Our Partners at MyChoice Home Loans can help find you the best loan for your circumstances.
