Planning a Knockdown Rebuild? We’ve Got You Covered!

We’ve got all the tools, advice and specialist support you need to make your Knockdown Rebuild a breeze.

If you love where you live, but not the house you’re living in, a Knockdown Rebuild (KDR) is the perfect solution. Demolish the dated original dwelling and replace it with the new, contemporary house of your dreams – all without uprooting your family from the neighbourhood you love.  

As a few more steps are involved in a KDR compared to building on an empty site, it’s important to have the right support. At Carlisle Homes, we are experts in Knockdown Rebuilds, with a dedicated team to help you every step of the way. We also have a raft of great resources to assist you – including a comprehensive info pack, a Knockdown Rebuild podcast, and case studies where you can hear (and learn) from buyers who’ve done it before.

Planning a Knockdown Rebuild? We’ve Got You Covered!

Carlisle Homes are experts in Knockdown Rebuilds, with a dedicated team to help you every step of the way and a raft of great resources to assist you.

1. A specialist KDR team 

KDR projects are a little more involved than a standard build. There is a demolition to manage, council regulations to meet and neighbours to consider. So it’s crucial to choose a builder that specialises in KDRs. 

Carlisle Homes’ dedicated KDR team understands every step of the process and knows exactly what needs to be done, so all you have to do is think about the type of home you want to live in. They will assist you throughout your KDR journey – from helping you find a suitable KDR site and organising permits, to ensuring your new home has the perfect orientation. 


2. Information pack

Our free 60-page comprehensive guide details everything you need to know about demolishing an existing home and building a new one, including financing advice, how to find the right block, expected costs, demolition and construction timelines and more. Our aim is to remove any ambiguities and answer all of your questions so you can enjoy the process of building your dream home.
