Knock down and rebuild
Knock down and rebuild
with King Homes NSW
If you already live in an area you love, but the home is out-dated, you don’t have to experience the hassle of moving or undertaking a renovation. A renovation can sometimes become just as costly as building a brand new home.
And when you knock-down and rebuild, you demolish your old home and replace it with a completely brand new, contemporary home designed to suit your family and lifestyle.
We invest into having our very own in-house design team which means we can work together to modify one of one of our standard plans to suit your block of land and council regulations. Alternatively, we can design a truly one-of-a-kind custom home or accept client supplied plans.
Our King Homes team will support you through the process of knocking down and rebuilding, so you know what is happening every step of the way. We know exactly what needs to be done, so all you have to do is think about what type of home you would love to live in.

The knock down and rebuild process
We understand a knock down and rebuild are very different to building a brand new home on an empty block of land.
When you choose us as your Builder, our team will support you throughout the process right from the start.
1. Choose your new home
We welcome you to visit one of our display homes to view our flexible floorplans and have a chat to our experienced Sales Consultants. You should bring along information about your block of land, including any surveys or land diagrams you may already have. Once you decide to proceed, we can organise a site inspection to determine whether your existing block of land is suitable to build a new home.
This is where we will prepare a tender for your new home build based on your floorplan selection, soil test will be completed at additional cost if required, site survey and any preliminary engineering. It will be your responsibility to engage a demolition company for the demolition of the existing home. Our team will be able to guide you on timeframes for when demolition should take place. Our team will also take care of all pre-construction related matters. Please keep in mind, after the Tender is accepted, no further changes will be made so it is imperative you review all documents and sign off before you go ahead with demolition.
At this stage, you can also visit our external partners, PGH or Austral bricks, to complete an external colour selection for your new home.
We will prepare the contract and full preliminary drawings, Basix assessment and provide you with an easy to understand HIA contract to review and sign.
4. Colour Selection
This is where your new home starts to come to life. Our clients often say the Colour Selection is one of the most exciting steps and you’ll be invited to our Studio King Selections Centre to complete a personalised colour selection for your new home. During this appointment, you will be guided by one of our resident interior designers to choose everything from tapware, to paint colour, to flooring and everything in between.
5. Pre-construction preparation
Now that your contract has been signed and your colour selection completed, there are several extensive steps required to be completed to get your new home ready to enter construction. This includes obtaining necessary approvals, permits, site surveys, soil tests and the final construction plans.
This is the official start of the construction process. Our friendly team will contact you to confirm when your home will be commencing construction.
The first major milestone in the construction of your new home, with the laying of your concrete slab. You will be introduced to your dedicated Building Supervisor who will be on-site for the duration of your build.

The electrical and plumbing done, stone bench tops, door furniture, shower screens and mirrors are installed. Any external render (where applicable) will also be completed. Towards the end of this stage, your Building Supervisor will arrange for you to attend a Practical Completion inspection.
Congratulations! Your new home has been completed and is ready for you to move in. On the day of handover, you will meet your Building Supervisor who will conduct an on-site handover.
