SHAW BUILDING GROUP

Knock down and rebuild? Do you love where you live, but find that your home no longer suits your needs? Why not build a brand new home on your existing block?

That way, you can stay in your familiar neighbourhood and enjoy the amenity of a new, custom-designed home. What’s more, you won’t be up for stamp duty.

Rebuilding versus extending

There are three main reasons why rebuilding might be a better choice. The first is that times have changed. We’re now much more conscious of sustainability issues, like reducing energy and water use. Making an older home sustainable can be difficult, if not impossible.

The second factor is cost. It’s always more challenging and relatively more costly to build onto and around an existing dwelling, compared to building on a cleared site. If you’re thinking of a substantial extension (more than 120m2), it’s worth exploring the knock down rebuild option.

The third factor is the state of existing household services such as electrical wiring and plumbing, and the building structure as a whole. Wires and pipes can deteriorate over time creating issues like unnecessary noises and hazards to health. The risk of the existing building not being adaptable to today’s environmental standards.
