Our Knockdown Rebuild Process
Drop into one of our 4 display locations across Tasmania and get the conversation started with a Building & Design Consultant. They can discuss your home and lifestyle requirements and show you potential designs for your new build. We require a copy of your Title so we can get an understanding of your location and surroundings.
One of our Construction Managers will visit your site to check the suitability of your KnockDown land. This includes accessibility for trade deliveries, electricity network supply (under or above ground), slope of site, traffic, schools, neighbouring lot conditions, legal point of discharge etc. We will also look at impact to neighbours. There are many things we must consider. We will also conduct initial investigations regarding your address and what you are aiming to achieve with Council.
After discussing your vision with a Wilson Homes Building & Design Consultant and having your site inspected, we’ll then provide you with an initial quote for your Knockdown Rebuild home.
The next step involves signing your preliminary agreement and paying your initial $3,000 (non-refundable) deposit fee, which secures your quote for 180 days.
If you want to make any changes to the design of your home at this point, your quote can be amended. Now is the time.
A meeting will be booked with your Building & Design Consultant so that you can review your Consolidated Tender (CT). Once the CT and any other remaining paperwork has been agreed on and signed, you can move forward with choosing electrical appliances and design details. Your plans will then be drawn.
Your house plan will be ready to review at this stage. If you’re happy with everything, the plan can be signed off on.
This stage of the build involves turning your house into your dream home using MyChoice Design Studio. Including multiple appointments with a qualified Interior Designer – this is where you will really start to personalise your home. You’ll also attend an electrical appointment to finalise any upgrades to electrical components.
You will attend a meeting with your Project Coordinator to review and sign your contract.
Once your contract, interior design and electrical components have been finalised, your plans will be lodged to obtain your Building Approval.
Once we have building approval, at this time, your independent demolishing company can knockdown the existing home and clear the site.
The independent demolishing company you engage will have given you demolition certificates, these are now to be passed onto your contact at Wilson Homes.
We will visit your cleared site for soil and contour reports to provide information for all engineering requirements.
After sending your financial lender a copy of your Building Approval, your lender (if applicable) will provide you with an Authority to Commence Construction letter. You'll be placed on our construction list and will progress to the next step.
