What is the Cost of a Knock Down Rebuild?

You might be asking yourself why you would commit to the process of knocking down a pre-existing home to then build in that same spot. The answer for many is in the control it gives them over where and how they live.

For some, knocking down their existing home to rebuild on the same block gives them a chance to build a home with the space they need for a growing family, without having to uproot the kids. For others, it is simply a chance to refashion their desired location with the house that will fit their needs perfectly.

The cost of the knockdown process is usually a pleasantly inexpensive surprise to most. Once underway, it can usually take place quickly, and our specialist site prep team can look after all the important details quickly. Though the process of building your own new home can take some time following that knock down.

We would say that usually the entire process can take anywhere between eight to twelve months, and you will want to consider external costs like your living arrangements while undergoing the rebuild. The design of your home, site issues, approvals and other challenges will all factor into the time and cost of your knock down rebuild.
