3 Reasons to Consider a Knockdown Rebuild Project

In recent years, one of the biggest trends in home building has been knock down/rebuild projects. Basically, they are the ideal way for people who have recently bought or own an old home to get a whole new property, without having to move to a new neighbourhood. Your existing home is completely torn down and rebuilt to your specification. Here are some of the reasons to consider a knock down and rebuild.

  1. It’s ideal for homes that can’t be renovated

There can be many reasons why a home can’t be renovated. If it has a lot of asbestos, structural problems, or issues that are too expensive to repair, then a tear down might be the best option. It can often be cheaper than fixing multiple issues in your home.

  1. It’s easier to get your dream home in the right location

When you shop for a house, you often have to compromise on either location or property style. But the great thing about choosing a knock down rebuild Canberra is that you can choose every feature of your home, and have it built on the land of your choice. If you’ve seen a house in the perfect location that’s less than perfect, or you own a house and love the neighbourhood, yet dislike your home, then this is the ideal solution.

  1. Knock down and rebuild can be less disruptive

There’s no denying that a knock down and rebuild is a big undertaking, but there are some reasons why it’s less disruptive than a renovation:

  • You move out for the duration – you don’t have to live with mess and noise, which you have to deal with if you’re renovating and living at home
  • There’s less likelihood you’ll come across further issues that need fixing
  • New installations are usually quicker than fixing things

If you’re worried about the disruption of a knock down and rebuild, then it’s worth speaking to a builder about how long the project might take. You can then make plans for alternative accommodation, whether that’s living in a caravan or staying with family. This kind of project can last 8-12 months, although some prefab options are faster.

There are many reasons why a knock down rebuild can work well for you. If your home simply can’t be renovated, then it can be a good alternative, and means you don’t need to move to a new area. Why not see if it’s a good alternative to renovating your home?
