Knock Down & Rebuild

Why knock down and rebuild?

Our philosophy at Smart Footprint Homes is centred around finding magic in the minimal, which is why we offer knock down and rebuild (KDRB) services as well as new builds. We understand how important location is for living the life you dreamed, and when you find an amazing community of people that you connect with, why would you want to leave?

You can stay in the neighbourhood you love, but get a brand new home with a knock down & rebuild

So if your home is looking tired, no longer meeting your changing needs as a family or couple, or you simply want to maximise your outdoor space by reducing your living areas, a KDRB could be the perfect solution to packing up and moving house.

This isn’t the only benefit to KDRB. The cost of building a new Smart Footprint Home on an existing block of land will surprise you. Consider just some of the costs you’d be avoiding:

  • No hidden or unexpected renovation costs
  • No Stamp Duty
  • No Real Estate selling fees

Regardless of these savings, you’ll be creating a home designed specifically for you, at your stage of life, in the location you’ve always loved.
