Build your dream home in your dream location.

Perhaps you need more space, more versatility, or maybe you’re just ready for an upgrade. There’s no need to compromise on your sunny beachside location when it comes to knocking down and building your new home.

And we’re here to help! Keep reading to find all the tips you need to bring your knockdown rebuild project to life.

Firstly, what’s a knockdown rebuild?

A knockdown rebuild project involves a home owner organising the demolition of their existing house and rebuilding new on their land.

Knocking down and rebuilding may be an alternative to renovating an older home, allowing you to have complete control of all aspects from the floorplan design right down to the facade.

Let's get started.


Let’s get started.

Like with any project, doing your research is paramount before getting started. We’ve made that process simple for you with our Essential Knockdown Rebuild Guide.

Here, we provide an easy to follow checklist so that you don’t miss anything along the way. Examples of this may include the level of slope across your block (does it slope front to back or side to side?), level of street access for construction workers and what to discuss with your neighbours.

As the Gold Coast is closer to the beach, your new home may require a stronger foundation as the soil contains more sand, or it may need to consider galvanization to prevent corrosion from the salty ocean air. And we’re here to help every step of the way.
