Building your dream home is all about designing a space that aligns seamlessly with your lifestyle and preferences. However, for many, the idea of building a new home comes bundled with concerns about uprooting their lives and facing the need to relocate.

Saying goodbye to a familiar neighbourhood, the memories you’ve made there, and the ease of living in a community you love can be tough. It’s a challenge when you want a home that suits your changing lifestyle but don’t want to leave your current life behind.

That’s where Metricon’s KnockDown ReBuild service comes in — the perfect solution to bridge the gap.

What is KnockDown ReBuild?

KnockDown ReBuild (KDRB) is an innovative approach where your existing home is demolished to make way for a brand-new one on the very same block of land. This process allows you to maintain your current lifestyle, connections, and convenience while enjoying a modern, customised home.

A Step-by-Step Guide to KnockDown ReBuild

1. Choose Your Dream Design

Start by exploring Metricon’s extensive range of home designs. From modern minimalism to classic elegance, there’s something for everyone. Visit display homes, browse 3D tours, and create a shortlist of your favourite floorplans. 

2. Get the Site Assessed

Preparing for a new build involves understanding the condition of your land.

Metricon conducts comprehensive soil tests and site surveys to assess the land’s suitability for your chosen design. This step identifies any potential challenges, such as land slope or service access, which can influence the design of your home.

3. Navigate Council Approvals

Once you’ve chosen a design, Metricon takes the lead in navigating local council approvals.

This thorough process ensures that your plans for a new build align with all regulatory requirements, making the approval process smooth and stress-free.

4. Finalise Your Preliminary Contract

After reviewing the site assessments, you’ll discuss and finalise your home plans, including any customisations and upgrades. Metricon ensures transparency in costs, so you know exactly what to expect.

5. Tailor Your Home

Personalisation is at the heart of KnockDown ReBuild.

Metricon’s Studio M provides customisation options for your home’s interior and exterior. Here, interior design consultants assist you in selecting colours, fixtures, and finishes that align with your vision.

To help spark your creativity, Metricon’s Lookbook also offers a wide range of design inspiration.

6. Consult for Electrical Layout

A crucial yet often overlooked aspect of home design is the electrical layout.

Metricon arranges consultations with electrical experts to discuss the optimal placement of lighting and other electrical features. 

7. Sign the Final Contract

With design and approvals in place, it’s time to sign the final contract.

Metricon helps you through the contract signing process, ensuring transparency in costs and design choices. This stage sets the foundation for the construction of your new home with a clear understanding of the timeline and budget.

8. Obtain a Building Permit

Securing a building permit is a critical step in your home-building journey. Metricon’s team manages this process and makes sure that all necessary approvals are in place before construction begins. 

9. Coordinate Demolition

Preparing your block for its transformation begins with the demolition of your old home.*

While Metricon doesn’t directly oversee this phase, they can connect you with trusted demolition companies. These recommended experts ensure the process is handled safely and efficiently to set the stage for your new home’s construction.

*Before proceeding with the demolition of your old home, it is crucial to ensure that you have obtained all the necessary and approved documents from relevant authorities.

10. Watch Your Dream Home Take Shape

Now, the exciting part can begins the construction of your new home.

Your site manager will keep you updated throughout the process and make sure that everything aligns with the agreed plan. Your role? Simply watch as your dream home comes to life.
