Knockdown Rebuild

Why Knockdown Rebuild?

If you’ve outgrown your home or it’s so outdated that it’s almost unliveable, you can sell it and move, renovate and extend it, or knock it down and rebuild your dream home. 

Why Knockdown and rebuild with Hickinbotham?

Uprooting your life and family to another suburb can be difficult, and it can be equally daunting facing a potential money pit of costly and never-ending renovations. A knock down rebuild can keep you settled in one place and is often less than the cost of renovating.

Demolishing an existing structure and building a new home or subdividing to make way for building multiple homes can be an excellent lifestyle and financial investment – especially in premium suburbs where land is scarce. 


With a knockdown rebuild, you'll save money and time

With a knock down rebuild project, you’ll end up with a brand new, modern home to suit your lifestyle now and into the future, and it will generally cost less than renovating and extending. It’s often cheaper (per square metre) to build a new home than to renovate or extend.

A knockdown rebuild is low-risk compared with renovating

Starting renovations can be exciting. But when you pull up floorboards or chip away at a wall, you don’t always know what’s underneath. The great unknown can open up major construction challenges, which leads to timelines being extended indefinitely and unforeseen costs beyond budget. You may also discover that you need to upgrade parts of your current home (stumping or electrical wiring) in line with modern building and council regulations, which can also be costly.

All of this can be bypassed with a knock down rebuild. In the long run there are usually much lower ongoing maintenance costs with a brand new home.

Rebuilding means your home will be exactly as you want it

Having to work with existing structures when renovating usually means you’ll have to compromise on achieving the exact layout and features you want.

With a knock down rebuild, you’ll have a blank canvas where you’ll be able to think outside the old box and choose a contemporary design that suits the lifestyle you want. Hickinbotham has more than 300 designs to choose from.
