Capitalise On Your Land and Take in the Views!

We have built a great team with deep industry knowledge and expertise and have gained a reputation as a builder of choice amongst the beaches community. A large number of projects on the beaches are knockdown rebuilds and we understand the challenges when building on the much loved Sydney Northern beachside landscape:

  • Marine environment requirements to resist the potential attack of salt in the air: i.e. exposure grade bricks, stainless steel bricks ties as opposed to galvanised and upgraded mortar with increased cement to sand

  • Challenging block foundations e.g. rock, sand or sloping block

  • Maximising your block and how to take full advantage of your location

With knockdown rebuild projects in  Allambie Heights, Balgowlah, North Balgowlah, Belrose, Clontarf, Elanora Heights, Forestville, Frenchs Forest, Freshwater, Killarney Heights, Manly, North Manly and Seaforth, our Coastal, Cottage, Contemporary and Hamptons designs are the perfect mix of relaxed, indoor, outdoor living, that suits Australia so well.

Custom Build Guide

Deciding to build a brand new home is a major life decision. You can invest years into researching what your perfect home will look like, or perhaps you might walk into a display home and find that's the perfect design for you and your family.

Whatever you decide you always have a choice, a choice to decide how much you want to invest in your new home project, that is how much time and money you are willing to put into creating you and your family, your forever home.

If you are thinking about a custom build there are a number of factors to consider. As custom home builders in Sydney, specialising in knockdown rebuilds with a key focus of building new homes throughout the Eastern Suburbs, North Shore, Northern Beaches, Sutherland Shire and Epping areas, we have had years of experience creating custom home designs and building custom homes. We would like to share our insight with you and how you can save time and money in probably one of the biggest investments, you will make.


Knockdown Rebuild Costs


When it comes time to knockdown and rebuild there are a lot of questions about how much it is going to cost. From demolition costs, site costs and ultimately your new home building costs. The costs to knockdown and rebuild your home is not a one size fits all. We highly recommend to not compare the costs of someone's build to yours - this is an unrealistic approach to a knockdown rebuild project. This will be your personal journey where your site, design, and personal requirements will differ.

Knockdown Rebuild Costs Include:  

1. Size of the existing home (sqm) that you are knocking down

2. Site costs including clearing for the new residence

3. Location –coastal, bushfire zones 

4. Heritage conditions if applicable

5. Traffic control especially on busy roads

6. Demolition of the existing home and asbestos removal (if applicable) 

7. Hydraulics 

8. Trees, not just on your property but your neighbours too 

9. Plan changes and where they are made in the process 

10. Fixtures and fittings 

Our experience with the changing needs of suburban living is a vital component of our success. Our understanding of the surroundings allows us to make a customer's investment go further, from home types to council standards and regulations. 


Robyn's Story


A Hamptons-inspired family home on Sydney's lower North Shore, as featured in Home Beautiful October 2021.

 For Sydney homeowners Robyn and husband Jonathon, it took more than five years before finding the perfect builder and locking in a home design they were both happy with. Needing to accommodate Robyn's large family, which includes young children, the house's design blends the indoors with the outdoors.

Sloping Blocks

Often seen as a challenge and more expensive to build, designing your dream home for a sloping block of land does come with hurdles, but there is also a lot to gain once your home is completed.
When designing and building on a sloping block, the primary consideration will be how to make your living zones comfortable without too many split levels or steps. This can be a challenge - especially if your home builder isn't familiar with sloping home designs or if they don't have flexibility with their range of homes.
Building on a slope requires intensive site planning and design consideration and as sloping block builders, we are here to help you understand how to make a sloping block home design work for you.

Heidi's Family Story


Our clients were ready for their forever home. After six years of living in their dream location of a leafy, coastal suburb on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, this young, professional family decided it was time to knockdown and rebuild to make way for their growing family.

The decision to finally take the plunge wasn’t an easy one as they had created wonderful memories in their home. However - with the structures falling down around them - the writing was literally on the wall!
