Why knockdown rebuild

Why renovate when you can build a brand new home? Not only is it easier, but it’s often cheaper and allows you to build exactly what you want.

Every year thousands of Australian families live through the nightmare of renovating the house they’re living in, expecting it to be quicker and cheaper than building from scratch. But demolishing your current home and rebuilding can actually be more cost-effective and faster than extending or renovating.

There are a multitude of plans on offer. Our Rethink Rebuild team specialises in building new homes that take full advantage of your site and you can choose from the most popular Rethink Rebuild designs which incorporate all our customers’ favourite features or any other home from our contemporary designs.

We take care of everything from obtaining the necessary permits to arranging the actual demolition and clean-up of the site. Working with Orbit Homes means you get the buying power of a large building company, resulting in reduced prices which can’t be achieved by a smaller supplier.

Plus, as we’re known for impeccable construction standards and attention to detail, you can rest easy knowing that there is company-wide commitment to customer satisfaction.

Knockdown and Rebuild

We had built before so we knew the pitfalls to look out for. From the very first meeting with Orbit Homes, we felt confident and at ease with them. What we really liked was that if our customer liaison officer thought something could be done better she made suggestions but didn’t pressure us into making decisions. We would recommend Orbit Homes to anyone.

Is your project suitable?


Do you already own the land on which you want to build?

Unfortunately we are not able to quote if there is no land or property purchased but we encourage you to contact us when you have done so.


Have you already demolished the house on your land?

That’s no problem – we are happy to build on blocks that have already been cleared of their former dwelling.

That’s no problem - we are able to manage the demolition of your existing property.


Do you already have plans from another builder?

Unfortunately we are only able to offer Orbit Home plans but we are confident that we have a plan to suit your needs so we encourage you to talk to us.


Are you looking to build units/ townhouses or a single dwelling house?

Unfortunately we only offer single dwelling plans and are not able to build units or townhouses.


Are you planning a renovation, extension or a build on the rear of an existing property?

Unfortunately we only offer whole builds for a new house on an un-subdivided block.


Are you interested in a custom or standard build?


Unfortunately we do not provide custom designed plans but there is a degree of flexibility
with the standard Orbit plans so we encourage you to talk to us about your needs.
