The list of why people consider a knockdown rebuild is endless. But there is one thing we know for sure: when people settle on the stunning Northern Beaches, they simply don’t want to leave. Often people struggle with the idea of a knockdown rebuild or a major renovation for quite some time. It’s never a decision that is made lightly. The main drawcard to knocking down your current home and rebuilding is that, more often than not, it can be a far more cost effective solution than renovating.
Why Knockdown Rebuild?
Is your home simply too small?
Are your young children suddenly teenagers requiring more space?
Does your home no longer fit your needs?
Is it starting to fall apart around you?
Do you need extra accommodation for ageing parents?
Why We Do What We Do
As builders on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Peninsula Homes specialises in custom designed KDR (knockdown rebuilds). The reason for this is simple: the Northern Beaches landscape varies greatly from beautiful seaside suburbs with coastline vistas, to suburbs surrounded by lush bushland and National Parks. With this in mind, many Northern Beaches properties do not sit on flat blocks of land, which makes them unsuitable for a standard project home. Our custom designs take all these things into account to make the best use of your land’s features.
A shortage of land around the Northern Beaches, and metropolitan Sydney in general, has been a driving force behind the surge of knockdown rebuilds. Best of all, when you undertake a knockdown rebuild, you start with a clean slate. Managing your budget when undertaking a knockdown rebuild is also easier, and with fixed price contracts, there will be less demand for a high contingency budget. On the other hand, undertaking a renovation can expose many unseen problems, leaving you with budget blowouts.
When you engage Peninsula Homes, you do not just get a ‘new’ home. Our aim is to design a home that highlights all the best aspects of your location and to minimise those less favourable. Sustainability and having minimal impact on the environment are key in our designs. Our design process takes into consideration things such as site orientation and cross flow ventilation to ensure the home is not only positioned to gain maximum benefit from cooling breezes and hot weather, but also offers protection from undesirable weather. By applying such design principles, we can often eliminate the need for air conditioning. Custom homes do not need to be vacuous to be functional. By maximising floor space with well designed and flexible floor plans, this allows families to grow with their home as their needs change over the years.
When you engage Peninsula Homes to design and build your home, we are with you every step of the way. There are no middle men. We know every contractor who works on our sites and they share the same attention to detail that we strive for. We manage the entire project from design stage right through until your occupation certificate.
