Whether you’re experiencing growing pains, looking to up-size due to a lifestyle change, or feel uninspired in your house but love your neighbourhood, a knockdown and rebuild could be perfect for you.
Knockdown and Rebuilds are becoming increasingly popular as land prices rocket to record highs, and we can see why as it’s typically more economical than moving!
How to: Have it all, knock down the old house and rebuild your new dream home
Instead of beginning the arduous search for a new perfect suburb to live in, you can bypass the entire process and build the home you’ve always wanted in the community you’ve built your life in. You’ll no longer have to compromise or settle for close enough — you will have full control of the style, features and most importantly, location!
The knockdown and build process with Premier Traditional Homes can be summarised in 4 simple steps:
1. Communicate with your local council — government authorities tend to have strict rules regarding knockdown and rebuilds as it can affect the wider community. During this part of the process, you will be required to submit permits and receive approval from your local council that authorises you to start the demolition process. It can seem a little daunting but don’t worry. We’ve got checklists to help you feel confident that you’ve got everything!
2. Share your vision with us — Let’s talk! Whether you’ve decided to build a home from our range of designs or looking to build a beautiful custom home, we’d like to get to know you and your vision so that we can draw up plans accordingly. Tell us what your dream house looks like in great detail to ensure that we can deliver you a home where you and your family will create countless memories together.
3. Getting lay of the land — During this stage, our preliminary testing, such as soil tests, plans, energy rating, and site cost analysis, commences as we’d like to get a better scope of the job at hand. Since no one knows your land the same way you do, we will brainstorm with you and help maximise the features of your new home. You’ll also be able to select colours, fixtures and fittings!
4. It’s time to build — Once we’ve confirmed the plans, contracts have been signed, and approval from necessary authorities has been received, it’s time to start building! You’ll be introduced to your Construction Manager, and then the fun part begins — you’ll be able to enjoy watching your dream home take shape!
