    • Is it cheaper to knock down and rebuild?

      Generally speaking, a knock down rebuild is a cost effective alternative to renovating or buying a new home, as it allows you to create a custom-built home that meets your needs and preferences. Renovations may be cheaper, but you'll be bound by the existing home's structure to a certain extent. Alternatively, buying a ready-made home may mean giving up the block of land that you love, or a specific location that you've dreamed of living in.

    • How long does a knock down rebuild take?

      The length of time it takes to complete a knock down rebuild will vary depending on a range of factors, such as the size and complexity of the project and the time required for council approvals and building permits. Generally, a knock down rebuild project can take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years to complete.

    • Do I need to obtain council approval for a knock down rebuild?

      Yes, obtaining council approval is required for a knock down rebuild project, as it involves significant changes to the existing property. The approval process may involve obtaining a demolition permit, construction certificate, and other relevant permits and approvals from the local council and regulatory bodies.

    • Can I customise the design of my new home?

      Working with our experienced rebuild specialists will allow you to customise the floorplan, finishings, style, and design of your new home. Our design consultants will work closely with you to create a custom design that maximises the potential of the site and makes the most of the surrounding environment, resulting in a high-quality, custom-built home that perfectly suits your lifestyle and preferences.

    • What are the benefits of a knock down rebuild over renovation or buying a new home?

      A knock down rebuild allows you to create a custom-designed home that perfectly suits your lifestyle and needs, without the limitations of an existing structure. They also offer better long-term value than renovating, as the new home will be built to modern standards and include the latest in energy-efficient and sustainable building practices and technologies.

    • What kind of QUALITY guarantee does New South Homes provide?

      Once construction has been completed, the home will be officially handed over to you. One of our representatives will hand you the keys, along with a copy of your warranty documents and information detailing our award-winning after-sales service commitment.
