Top 10 Tips To Knock Down And Rebuild Your Dream Home

You love where you live, but your family is quickly outgrowing the space? You belong in this neighbourhood, so why not make a change while still being close to all of those things that matter most? Over the last ten years homeowners have trusted us as the best custom home builders Newcastle, with knocking down and designing their new homes from start to finish. This process has become our specialty because we know how important it can be for someone’s dream home! Here are some quick tips before taking that leap over into your brand-new lifestyle:

The ultimate home upgrade

Knocking down a house is no easy task. It’s worth it, though! With our team of experts at your side, we can make the process as smooth and painless as possible. From getting you situated on land that will work for your needs to designing out every detail from landscaping to painting walls – all while keeping up with zoning codes and regulations along the way – Newcastle Designs makes rebuilding homes in Newcastle an absolute breeze!

Planning is essential for a successful rebuild

The first thing we need to do is check the land for any zoning restrictions and determine if it’s suitable for a knockdown. We’ll then figure out how many walls you’re going to have, what materials you want on your exterior, whether or not there will be roofing over an atrium space in front of your house…

The process starts with determining where exactly should our new home go? What are my preferences regarding size as well as site orientation? There might also be some pre-existing structures that could stay up like old sheds or storage buildings which would provide more support while everything else gets rebuilt (knocked down).

Position your new home for optimum sunshine

After your new home is in the perfect spot, our designers will ensure that you have everything to make it an even more pleasant place for you and those around with a good serene environment.

Your house’s orientation impacts how happy or relaxed people are when they enter – so before we start designing anything, let us know which way up makes you most content!

Relocating is what we do best

Going from one home to another is an experience that can be both exciting and stressful. With our help, the process of moving will go smoothly so you can focus on other areas in your life without any worries about how it’s going with us.

Our designers will help you create a dream home

We’re serious about building your dream home. That means we go the extra mile to make sure that all of our clients are happy with their new space before they move in. You’ll be able to see how the house will grow and what it could look like, even down to details such as tiles and décor-which is a lot more fun than just digging holes! Let one of our onsite landscape architects help you from start (land mapping) through finish (tiles).

Our design team has the expertise to help you create your dream kitchen. We have all sorts of designs and materials that will make sure it reflects who you are as a person, from sleek black countertops with white cabinets for those minimalists out there, to rustic wooden accents if one is more into earthy tones.

Pools designed to be an extension of indoor living spaces

When you want a pool that is as beautiful and functional as your home, Newcastle Designs will design the perfect one for you. With our experience working with homeowners from all across Australia, we know what it takes to make sure everyone’s needs are met – safety fencing included!

Choose a design that suits your family

At Newcastle Designs, we’ve been building homes and families together for over 50 years. We are proud to offer you the widest variety of styles from traditional-styled gabled roofs with a more contemporary look to our newest selection: an exhibition design kitchen complete with premium European appliances. With features like butler’s pantry or cellar space designed in every home, there is no better option than one built by us!

With a plethora of designs to choose from, our homes have everything you could need for your family. Each design has been created with the needs and wants in mind beforehand so that every growing dynamic family can find their perfect fit!

Let us create the outdoor space you will love

The ambiance of a home is more important than ever before. With the fast-paced lives we lead and so many distractions, it’s essential to have an oasis in your own space where you can relax – even if only for a few minutes at a time! At Newcastle Designs, our design team will help create that perfect balance with tones from natural stone or wood flooring to innovative lighting fixtures which transform any room into something inspiring and unique. We are proud of how much thought goes into every aspect when building your new dream house; all built right here on site by some of the most talented craftsmen in Australia who take pride both professionally and personally in their workmanship.

Demolishing and rebuilding saves you money

It’s been said that there is no riskier investment than property – but what if we told you demolishing and rebuilding makes it worth more? That means not only are demolition costs covered from whatever expenses come up during construction, but stamp duty will also be waived as well as any markups for agency fees when selling afterwards. And then add all these cost savings onto how much cheaper building can potentially save you outlay-wise: obviously renovating requires high upfront labour costs because of the work involved; extensions aren’t always straightforward, and the costs of building can be up to 50% less than renovating.

Let’s build your dream home together

One of the first things you think about when planning your dream home is who will be there to help you through it all. Your personal Client Service Manager, who has been with us for years and knows every inch of our project management system like the back of their hand, will guide you from start to finish as we walk down each step together. An on-site Construction Supervisor can answer any questions that come up throughout construction so that nothing catches either one off guard at a crucial moment in time – especially since this person is also experienced in handling emergencies or anything else along those lines before they escalate into something major.

You are now just steps away from living out your most exciting dreams!
