Knock Down Rebuild
Knock down and rebuild your Melbourne home with professional custom luxury builder, Comdain Homes.
RENOVATE OR REBUILD?
With a profusion of outdated housing in sought after suburbs in Melbourne, the idea of a luxury home rebuild is becoming increasingly attractive to families who love where they live but want a more comfortable lifestyle close to excellent schools and public transport.
With a renovation you’re restricted by the style and floorplan of your existing house, whereas a well-designed custom built luxury home can optimise the home's orientation and have highly liveable spaces inside and out. A brand new custom built home will be comfortable thanks to excellent insulation, environmental considerations and the use of non toxic materials.
Building from scratch also allows you to utilise the latest building techniques, thereby reducing maintenance and running costs. Importantly, there is more certainty of the final cost of a rebuild as opposed to a renovation where there can be unhidden costs.
