Ever considered a knockdown rebuild? It might just be the perfect way to upgrade your family home. Read on to learn more about if this exciting housing option is right for you.

What is a knockdown rebuild?

A knock down rebuild is when you knock down your old home and build new on the same block of land.

A knockdown rebuild is great if your young family needs more room to grow or even if the fledglings are leaving the nest and you'd like to downsize.

It's particularly ideal if you have found an old home in a great location or if you love where you live and want to stay there.

What does the knockdown rebuild process involve?

Undertaking a knockdown rebuild is very exciting, but it's also a complex process. You can rest assured that when you choose Beachwood Homes as your knockdown rebuild specialists, you'll be in safe hands. Here's the key steps to the knockdown rebuild process:

Step 1: Choose and finalise your home design

Meet with a sales consultant to explore floorplans, options, inclusions, and any upgrades.

Step 2: Site Assessment

Beachwood will order a site assessment of your block to assess suitability

Step 3: Quote

You will be provided a quote, which upon accepting, your building journey begins!

Step 4: Pre-site

Choose your colours and finishes for you home. All checks, documentation, permits and final plans are arranged for you to  do a final sign-off and acceptance before your building permit is obtained

Step 5: Construction

From the foundations to lockup, our team works hard to build your home to the highest quality, before the keys are handed over for you to move in!

Step 6: Aftercare

Our aftercare team provides a maintenance inspection a few months after you have settled in, along with information on your warranties. Rest easy knowing that Beachwood Homes provides a 25 year warranty on the structural components of your new home.

What are the benefits of a knockdown rebuild?

Great value

If you want a new home, then getting a knockdown rebuild is an economical option. Knockdown rebuild prices can be cheaper than buying established property or building new because you already own your land. You save on stamp duty and many other costs of moving location.

The knockdown rebuild cost in Melbourne and Victoria can be quite affordable, and if you choose a great builder like Beachwood Homes there are no hidden costs of a knockdown rebuild.

Familiar location

If you want to enjoy all the perks of a brand new home without having to uproot the family, then a knockdown rebuild is perfect for you.

Your kids get to stay at the same school and close to all their friends, avoiding the pressure of re-adjusting to a new life in a different suburb. This also saves you the trouble of enrolling the kids at different schools, learning new bus routes, and everything else that comes with a change of scenery.

Make it your own

Choosing a knockdown rebuild gives you the opportunity to create a home that is perfectly suited to your family. 

Instead of trying to fit your family into someone else's design, a knockdown rebuild lets you choose a home design with the right number of bedrooms, car garages and more.

You can customise everything from the essential needs to the fixtures, fittings and colours, creating a style that suits your tastes.

When you build with Beachwood Homes you choose from our Evolve and Ascend collections and use our Harmony Gallery tool to bring your vision to life.
