Knock Down Rebuild or Renovate?

A knock down rebuild will involve finding the right balance between your budget, the features you would like. It also allows you to stay in your current location meaning minimal family disruptions.

Should I knock down my existing house and rebuild?

The knock down and rebuild option is fast becoming more popular due to a shortage of land in residential suburbs. Many older homes on valuable and sought after land do not offer modern integrated family spaces with good construction techniques and energy efficiencies.

Knock down and rebuild means that you do not have to work around existing structures and you do not have to compromise.

If the existing house is structurally in a bad way, there is a likelihood that knock down and rebuild will be a lot cheaper and easier than trying to renovate it.

Knock down and rebuild will enable you to stay in your current location. This provides minimal family disruptions and no need to change schools or re-establish your family in a new neighbourhood.

Tip: Deciding on whether to renovate or rebuild is a big decision and an expensive one. Whichever way you go, it is vital to do your homework or speak with a knowledgeable and experienced builder such as Style Plus, first.

Why choose to knock down rebuild?

A knock down rebuild suits homeowners who are not content with:

• A large renovation with quotes that are fast approaching what a new home build would cost.

• A design | floor plan that does not suit the family’s lifestyle.

• Earlier construction, materials, or techniques that do not incorporate items such as double glazing or underfloor heating. Additionally, future proofing your existing home may not be an option due to cost.

• A sited home that has no environmental benefits or poor natural light.

If you decide to embark on building a new home, the following are a few pointers:

As you plan your new home, one of the first questions to consider is whether working with a custom design & build company such as Style Plus or a higher volume home builder is the best choice for you.

A volume home building company simultaneously builds multiple homes based on a collection of home plans – cookie cutter approach. Buyers personalise their home by selecting product categories such as appliances, cabinets, countertops and flooring from a menu of options offered by the builder.

A custom design & build company such as Style Plus typically creates a one of a kind, unique home that offers an even greater range of design choices. Clients who wish to have a home purpose built for their needs and lifestyles often decide to work with a design & build company.
