What is a knockdown rebuild? 

A knockdown rebuild is the process of demolishing an existing structure on a property, usually an older or outdated home and constructing a brand new one in its place. It offers homeowners the opportunity to start afresh and create their dream home without having to move to a new location. A knockdown rebuild allows for greater control over the design, layout, and features of the new home, providing the flexibility to customize it according to specific preferences and requirements. It is a popular option for those who love the location of their current property but wish to upgrade or modernize their living space. 

How much does a knockdown rebuild cost? 

The cost of a knockdown rebuild project can vary significantly based on various factors. A knockdown rebuild will likely involve higher upfront costs compared to just renovations or purchasing an existing property. This is due to the costs involved in demolition and then building. However, the benefit of a knockdown rebuild is that you achieve a brand-new home tailored to specific needs and preferences in the location you’ve long loved. G.J. Gardner Homes offer a fixed price scheme so you can know the overall cost of the project upfront and understand the investment involved. 

Think of knockdown rebuild as an alternative to land and home packages or the more economical alternative to buying a new home in your area. As property prices continue to rise, knockdown rebuilds let you stay in this coveted location but achieve an updated home that’s built custom to your needs. 

The major costs involved in knockdown rebuilds

Demolition and site preparation: The cost of demolishing the existing structure and preparing the site for construction can vary. It will be based off a range of factors such as the size and complexity of the demolition, accessibility of the site and any specific removal requirements. 

Design and construction costs: Our construction costs will depend on the size, design and complexity of the new home. Through our fixed prices and custom building, you can find a price that works with your budget and avoids overspending. 

Permitting and approval fees: Across the country, knockdown rebuilds require necessary permits and approvals from local governments. These fees can vary depending on the location and are essential to the project.  

Knockdown Rebuild vs. New Home 

The decision between a knockdown rebuild and building a new home from scratch depends on individual circumstances and considerations. A knockdown rebuild offers the advantage of preserving the existing property’s location. It eliminates the need for searching and purchasing a new property, potentially avoiding additional costs like stamp duty.  

Building a new home from scratch, on the other hand, provides the opportunity to choose a vacant lot in a desired location and have full control over every aspect of the design and construction process. 

The choice comes down to personal preferences, budget, time frame and the condition of the existing property. Our team can help evaluate your options and support you in reaching an informed decision that aligns with individual goals and requirements.
