In Part 1 of this two-part series, we laid the foundations for why you should consider a Knock Down Rebuild for your new home, along with the benefits of a KDR and where to start.

Now, in Part 2, let’s dive a little deeper into your Knock Down Rebuild with Beechwood Homes.

The key steps to your Knock Down Rebuild 

After you have spoken with the team at Beechwood Homes and decided that a Knock Down Rebuild is the best way for you to achieve your perfect home,

you are now ready to get started. There are four key steps to a knock down rebuild:  

  • Design.
  • Approvals.
  • Demolition. 
  • Rebuild.


Having chosen the Knock Down Rebuild path for attaining your new home, you now need to consider the design. At Beechwood Homes, we have many innovative home designs to choose from, all of which can be tailored to meet the needs of your family. You can go inside our many single storey and double storey display homes from the comfort of your current home with our virtual tours to see which will best suit you. 


Many regulatory approvals need to be signed off before the physical part of a Knock Down Rebuild can commence. Following the correct processes and procedures will help your project to progress with minimal fuss.

The Beechwood Homes team will work with you to manage all approvals on your behalf to ensure your Knock Down Rebuild keeps moving forward and doesn’t succumb to unforeseen delays or complications.

Once your project has been approved and permits are in hand, then the action starts with the demolition. All of your utility services will be disconnected, and your existing home will be demolished down to its foundations. The rubble will be cleared, and the site prepared for the rebuild. 


One of the most exciting times in your life will be seeing your new home come to life. In the Rebuild stage, communication from your builder is critical. With Beechwood, not only will you have a dedicated team member who will be your primary point of contact, but you will also be given access to Beechwood’s online communication hub, Pulse Portal

As each stage of your Knock Down Rebuild is completed, your site supervisor will update you and provide images of the stages that have been completed via the Pulse Portal. 

Knock down the old and rebuild anew 

One of the hardest parts of finding a new home is facing up to the possibility that you may have to move away from the area you know and love. The area where your family has grown-up, put down roots, and built long-term relationships with your neighbours. 

But that doesn’t have to be your future – if you choose a builder with a proven track record in successfully delivering knock down rebuild projects. At Beechwood Homes we have been delighting customers with new homes for nearly 40 years.

Experienced in knock down rebuild projects, we will work with you to ensure that you can stay in the area where you have built a life and give you the best new home in your street.
