Contemplating a Renovation?

Have you been contemplating a major renovation to revamp your kitchen, and bathroom, and bring in modern fixtures and fittings, only to be discouraged by the sky-high construction costs? Don’t let the burden of unpredictable expenses deter you any longer. By opting for a knock-down-rebuild approach, you can sidestep the unpleasant surprises that often accompany renovations, ensuring your budget remains predictable and manageable.

Alternatively, your current residence might lack the ideal layout, space, and natural light found in modern home designs. However, if you’re deeply attached to its location, fear not. You can have the best of both worlds by preserving the site and starting afresh with a brand-new home that meets all your desires.

At Mincove, we make the dream of residing in a stunning, modern, and affordable home attainable. Our fixed-price contracts eliminate the stress of escalating renovation expenses, ensuring a seamless and predictable home-building experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of a Knock Down Rebuild?

For many homeowners looking to give their home an upgrade, there’s always the toss-up between renovating or moving. In some circumstances, starting from scratch with a knock down rebuild may even be the best option!

While the idea might sound extreme, there are many benefits, including:

  • Cheaper and faster than a renovation — In our experience, we find that starting from scratch is the more cost and time-effective option. This is often because there are no surprises expenses, plus you won’t have to worry about repaying stamp duty or real estate fees.
  • No need to move — Many homeowners who’ve either outgrown their home or want a fresh start struggle with the idea of selling their home because they love the area. By opting for a knock down rebuild, families can stay in their suburb but enjoy the luxury of a new home.
  • Greater flexibility in design — House hunting doesn’t always go according to plan, especially if you’re after a specific floor plan or design. With a knock down rebuild, you’re the boss. You’ll be in charge of everything from the interior design to bedroom size to kitchen features.
  • Can keep up with a growing family — One of the common reasons homeowners need to move house is because they’d like to expand their family. Opting to have your home rebuilt means adding as many extra rooms as you want, without having to endure the stress of moving.

Is a Knock Down Rebuild more cost-efficient?

Generally, yes. Our knock down rebuild specialists will give you a fixed price before we begin demolition. Having a locked-in figure in place means you’ll be able to budget accordingly. It also means you won’t be hit with any surprise costs or fees along the way — a pinch that often comes with renovating.

What factors influence a Knock Down Rebuild process?

Once we sit down and begin discussing your vision, some factors can influence the process, such as:

  • Design goals — Do you want a complex floor plan?
  • Property size — Will we need to demolish a large house?
  • Any legal issues that arise — Are there fixtures that will be difficult to approve?

How long does knocking down a house and rebuilding it take?

On average, a knock down rebuild takes around 8-12 months. However, this isn’t a guaranteed timeline — a few things that can get in the way of demolition include:

  • Issues with the land or soil
  • Financial constraints
  • A change in design
  • Harsh weather conditions

Do I need a permit for a Knock Down Rebuild?

Yes. As part of our service, Mincove Homes will be your partner throughout the process. This includes obtaining permits and other approvals from your council, as well as providing cost estimates and design assistance.

Will I need to organise the demolition myself?

No. Once you sign up for a knock down rebuild, we take responsibility for everything from demolition to design. We understand that this can be a stressful time, especially if you’re new to the concept, so it’s best to leave it up to the knock down rebuild specialists.

Should I get a loan for a Knock Down Rebuild project?

This will depend on your financial circumstances. If you are still paying off your home loan, you might consider refinancing rather than taking out another loan. On the other hand, if you have paid off your mortgage and need extra help with financing, shop around on construction loans to ensure you get the best deal.
