Knockdown & Rebuild vs Renovation

Just to add another builder to the list: Latitude 37 is one that I came across as well. But I've not contacted them.

Hi Mscat.
I've come across Englehart in my initial searches but not Highview home. With regards to Highview home, as lovely as it is, it doesn't suit us. What I mean…

Sure thing. Thanks for your feedback. One company did give a rough starting point of about $700k. But the other two said about $800k-900k would probably be more 'reasonable'.
Ideally, the…

Thank you for all the sharing. My current discoveries/learnings so far.
For what we are hoping to build, we are looking at approximately a 40/45 sqm home.
This is roughly double what…

DO you need permission to build a deck

My deck was going to be over 10m2. So a build permit was required (Kingston Council).
Granted this is not in Wantirna but I am assuming some similar standards may…

Just following up here as well. Did anyone end up with Mazzei? I'm interested to get some reviews.

Hello! We are still researching but leaning towards a KDR.
A sell and move may not be financially feasible. On top of that none of the floor plans available appeal…

Hi everyone, I’m currently going through some concepts for a potential knock down and rebuild. It would be great to get some inputs from the more experienced folks here.
Understanding that…

Thanks brokenstick. Will do. I think we are in a similar boat - i.e. spent ages house hunting, and from what we've gleaned,…

Hi everyone,
I'm doing some research and I'm stuck. What is the general consensus on reno conducted on a waffle pod?

I will check out the volume builders you've listed before looking up for smaller builders. Our block is trapezium in shape. I just think…
