It might seem like a big step, demolishing your current home and building a new one. But improving (instead of moving) your life can be easier than you think. And taking advantage of your great location can reap financial rewards down the track.
Do you love where you live?
At Metricon, we are all about loving where you live. For so many people, loving their inner-city home is all about where it is, rather than what it is. Whether it’s the street, the view, or the lifestyle of the suburb they are in, it’s all about location. If your current home isn’t exactly want you want, and you don’t want to face the significant financial risk of a large renovation, then consider Metricon’s KnockDown NewBuild solution. Our service in metropolitan Melbourne can help you deliver the brand new home you love, in the place you love.
Is rebuilding easy?
The short answer is yes, it can be. We have been building homes for more than 40 years and our experience provides you peace of mind. There is nothing like the feeling of walking into a brand new Metricon home, especially one you have created with your preferred finishes and colours throughout. Some people choose to completely renovate their home, not realising how easy a KnockDown New Build can be. Renovating can result in cost blowouts and the discovery of dangerous and costly surprises. Knocking down and rebuilding can have the benefit of being able to stick to a strict budget, and having the perfect home for your lifestyle to show at the end of it.
How do I get started?
The first step is to choose your dream home from our huge range. One of our experts will complete a free appraisal of your block of land to determine whether the home options you have chosen are suitable for your block. Then the fun part begins; our team will work with you to finalise your dream home design, complete with the available customisations and personalised finishes you want in your brand new home.
Our design philosophy has always been focussed on continuing to improve and innovate, allowing us to create beautiful, modern homes for the Australian lifestyle. We understand the importance of space and openness, and our homes reflect your family and your lifestyle through their designs.
What about hidden costs?
From the very start, we will give you access to all the information possible, to help you budget and make the right decisions for you. Your preliminary contract and the builder’s plans for your home will be prepared for you to review, so that we can show you all of the costs of building your dream home, and how it will look on your block.
We will invite you to visit our incredible Studio M selection centre where you can look through a vast range of colours, finishes and fixtures while working with a Metricon home décor consultant to ensure you get the best possible look. Once you are ready to get started, we will conduct soil tests and check further survey and service information on your site. All this will be presented in your preliminary contract which includes itemised site costs, upgrades and a detailed siting showing the intended positioning of your dream home on your block so there are no surprises for you and your family.
What happens next?
Once you are ready to go, it’s lights, camera, action! Well lights, power, contract, permits and demolition, anyway. At Metricon, we can help you every step of the way. We will arrange everything for you to help move your dream forward, from the building permits and contracts, through to the lighting and electrical. And we can even recommend a reputable demolition company to remove your old house and prepare your block for your new home. From the pouring of your concrete slab, erecting the frame, gaining ‘lock-up’ status, interior and exterior finishes to the final handover, we’ll be right there to advise you on updates and answer any questions you have along the way.
