Knock Down Rebuild
November 23, 2022
A common misunderstanding about knocking down & rebuilding your house on the same land is that you must pack everything, find another house and be miles away from the place you have fallen in love with. The concept is intimidating, and suddenly, the procedure becomes more challenging than you had anticipated.
We know how the knockdown procedure feels, so no homeowner, especially one eager to start their new journey, finds this thought alluring.
What’s the good news, then? You don’t have to leave! Why should you, too?

Steps Included In The Knockdown & Rebuild Process
The Initial Site Evaluation
Once you’ve decided to knock down and start over, a builder will conduct a detailed initial site evaluation of your chosen location for construction.
They examine the soil, the site’s structure, and the ground’s foundations to ensure that all three are appropriate for the type of building you are planning.
They employ a rigorous testing procedure to evaluate any threats and accurately comprehend the foundations.
Many building planners won’t talk to you about the difficult but necessary council approval process. Council approval is one of the most crucial steps and one that your builder should guide you thoroughly.
You and the council must be satisfied before construction starts since they cannot move forward with the building without the council’s approval.
When your visionary designs start to materialise, this is one of the most thrilling phases of the construction process. The building team will be on-site to create the initial building, which will take the shape of site preparations.
The final plan is forwarded to the council for approval, along with the approval of the building permits, as soon as these site preparations are finished. All your planning and wishes for your home will quickly become a reality as it takes shape.
