Our Building Process

Sometimes it’s better just to start from scratch.

Here at Bluegem homes, we have been working with knock-down re-builds for more than 10 years. We have the experience and care needed to help you through the knock-down process and build the strong, sturdy new home to stand in its place.

Benefits of Knock Down & Rebuild

  • Cost effective when compared to renovations or extension
  • You live in your home till you’re ready to start building, reducing holding cost of land and paying for your current home (mortgage or rent)
  • You stay within your local area, no new neighbours.
  • Cheaper land value compared to today's $/sm. for land purchase

Our Building Process

Site Investigation/Appraisal

  • We look at the site topography, any easement restrictions, location of services on site, site access, condition of boundary fences to be retained and if there is any major/large trees and shrubs on site.

Select Your Home Design Or Start From Scratch

  • Based on your block site (depth and width) we will recommend some of the designs that will be applicable to your lot. If our design don’t fit your needs, Bluegem will alter the design or we start with a blank canvas and work with our customer so achieve the forever home you desire.

Initiate Selections And Tender Price Estimate

  • Based on current standard inclusions and finishes, Bluegem is able to provide you the client a budget estimate based on the design or custom home selected. Our estimating and sales people have worked closely with our suppliers and trades to help us work out initial budget cost on standard design or customised thanks to out special estimating tools.

This will ensure that your designed home will not blow the budget and you are able to have the needed home at an affordable price.

Plans Approval

  • Plans and consultant documents are submitted to Certifying Authority for approval. You will also be assigned a customer liaison manager who will ensure that your application is approved swiftly while keeping you informed about its progress throughout the assessment period. During this process, the client is able to make upgrade variations and selection changes prior to signing contract and final tender.

Contract And Tender

  • Once the plans are completed, and the initial selections and finishes are included, we draft up final tender price based on the design, house size and selections. Customer will be required to sign the tender along with the final architectural plans and documentations and building contract.


  • Building your dream home starts here…..out with the old and in with the soon to be completed new home. Our construction team will ensure your home is built to the highest quality and we have taken that step further by engaging external independent building inspectors that will inspect the construction of your home at critical stage completions. Prior to each progress claim, a member of our site team will schedule a site inspection with you and take you through your home and show you the progress.

My home is my sanctuary!

Bluegem helped me make the complicated choice whether to move to a new location or knock down & build on the existing site. I love the majestic facade, spacious living area & adjoining spaces.

It’s hard to find a builder who’s prepared to work with you.

Bluegem's Homes' builder only took 12 months to build our new home. Special attention was given to the kitchen, which resulted in high quality features.
