Knock down & rebuild – how does it work?

Are you starting to feel that your existing home no longer meets your needs, but still love your neighbourhood? Don’t leave friends, family, school and the community that you love. Create your dream home, right where you are!

A Knock Down Rebuild allows you to stay in your current neighbourhood and enjoy an architecturally inspired new home, designed specifically to reflect your style, taste and lifestyle. If you’re dreaming of a new house but don’t want to move, Fairhaven Homes’ Knock Down Rebuild service is perfect for you.

Here’s how it works:

Stage One

Have a 1:1 consultation with your Knock Down Rebuild Consultant to discuss your vision and budget, and assess your land.

Stage Two

Choose from a range of floorplan designs, to find one that best suits your lifestyle and block of land

Stage Three

We will undertake some preliminary works (site inspections, soil reports, etc.) and prepare the initial documentation.

Stage Four

Your colour selection appointment is your opportunity to make your new home your own – you’ll choose your fixtures, fittings and finishes with the expert help of a qualified Interior Designer in the myHAVEN Selection Studio.

Stage Five

We will prepare working drawings, preliminary engineering designs and building contract.

Stage Six

Once you’ve signed the building contract, we will apply for your building permit. Once the permit has been granted the existing property will be demolished.

Stage Seven

We will arrange final soil reports, contour surveys and engineering designs once demolition is complete.

Stage Eight

Construction of your new home begins. You’re encouraged to make regular site visits during the building process and share in the excitement as your new home takes shape.

Stage Nine

It’s now time to move into your new Fairhaven Home!

Our dedicated Knock Down Rebuild team are standing by to help you decide if this is the right option for you – contact us today to discuss your situation and ask any questions you may have about the process.
