Knockdown rebuild

Do you love your neighbourhood but crave a modern, functional home?  Maybe your existing house feels outdated or simply doesn't meet your family's needs. A knockdown rebuild might be the perfect solution! This approach offers a unique opportunity to create your dream home from the ground up, all while staying in a familiar and cherished location. In this blog post, we'll explore the many advantages of knockdown rebuilds, from achieving a fully customized design to maximizing your property value.

Get what you want

Design and building a home that suits your lifestyle rather than compromising for something that is ready built. You can get the home you want, built exactly the way you want.

Stay Home

Imagine staying put in your cozy French Provincial home, surrounded by loved ones and the familiar comfort of your surroundings. You know exactly where everything is, from your favorite shops to the best route to work, and even where to grab that perfect cup of coffee.

Savings of a Knockdown and Rebuild project

Avoid stamp duty costs, real estate agent commission fees and all the other additional costs associated with buying a new property.

Save time

Avoid having to spend weekend after weekend trying to find the right property, uncertain of whether you will succeeding in finding what best suits.

Less ongoing repairs

A brand-new home means less maintenance with new electrical, plumbing and more, compared to an older existing home. 


Knockdown rebuilds offer a surprising benefit for families with children: stability. By staying put in your familiar neighborhood, your children can avoid the stress of changing schools, disrupting their education and social circles. This continuity allows them to focus on their studies and maintain involvement in extracurricular activities, creating a smoother transition for the whole family.

Know from the beginning what you are getting, rather than selling and being left uncertain of where your family will end up.


Building a brand new modern home or a charming French Provincial home on your land can be a strategic investment. The increased value of your property can unlock exciting financial opportunities, giving you more freedom to achieve your long-term goals.

Reduced energy bills

Along with a requirement to meet a 7-star energy rating there are certain prescriptive BCA requirements, such as sealing and services. With the latest in technology and appliances, brand-new homes are generally more efficient in electricity usage, insulation and water consumption and can therefore reduce your energy costs.

Knockdown Rebuild: Your Dream Home, Same Great Location

A knockdown rebuild offers a compelling solution for homeowners who crave a modern, functional home without sacrificing the comfort and familiarity of their cherished location. You gain complete design control, avoid the hassle and expense of moving, and benefit from a brand-new home with lower maintenance costs, improved energy efficiency, and potentially increased property value.  

So, if you're ready to unlock the full potential of your existing block and create a dream home that perfectly suits your lifestyle, a knockdown rebuild might be the perfect path forward.
