Your Complete Guide to Knocking Down and Rebuilding Your Home

When knocking down and rebuilding your home on your own property, you’re getting the best of both worlds – a brand new house with all the modern finishes you’ve had your eye on, and the ability to stay in the neighborhood that you’ve established roots in. Whether you need more space to accommodate a growing family or your house is simply stuck in the past and needs an upgrade, knocking down and rebuilding is a wonderful route to take with tons of benefits.

Now is your chance to enjoy a brand new home, custom designed to your taste and budget. If you’re in the right neighborhood, but not the right house, it’s time to knock down and start over. The experts at Center Island Contracting have floor plans designed for lot sizes that fit the lot you already own, so we can start by browsing our floor plan library.

What To Know Before You Begin

Before you begin, have peace of mind knowing our design-build firm will take care of every step of the knock down and rebuild process, from demolition to designing to rebuilding. We’ll even take care of the permit process and supervise the construction of your new, customized home from beginning to end.

Knock Down and Rebuild Advantages

The list of advantages of a knock down and rebuild project is lengthy. It includes:

  • Resale advantage
  • Rebuilding an energy efficient home
  • Brand new home on the lot you already know and love
  • No more structural issues with an outdated house
  • Designed exactly how you want it, within your budget

Custom Design Process

We can work together to choose a floor plan from our library, or a custom floor plan tailored to your personalized tastes. After we choose a floor plan, we will go on to choose the exact finishes you want for the brand new home of your dreams.

Save Money

It’s widely assumed that a knock down and rebuild project is pricier than most home building projects, but it could cost less than an extensive renovation project. Don’t rule it out because of the stigma surrounding price – talk to one of our building experts first.
