Our story begins when Homestead Homes was established by Rod Lindner over 30 years ago. Rod had started his building career at the age of 16 as an apprentice to his brother. Rod’s father also had his own building company. Rod and his brother then branched out into their own successful businesses.
“Timeless custom homes, meticulously detailed and beautifully finished.”
Rod initially worked on home renovations and extensions, then constructed his first project home, the ‘Monterey’, in the late 1980s. The ‘Monterey’ was built in Cherrybrook, and was soon joined by the ‘Waratah’ in Castle Hill. The single level ‘Waratah’ was popular with young families, being designed to fit the smaller blocks in Sydney’s growing Hills District.
Homestead Homes continued to build in the Hills and upper North Shore, with Rod’s custom designed homes being sought-after by growing families.
A family man, Rod named his next two display homes after his daughters, Taya and Skye. The ‘Taya’ and ‘Skye’ homes remain popular after 10 years. Rod’s latest home, the ‘Ruby’ is named after his grand-daughter. The ‘Ruby’ is being constructed in Kellyville and will open in mid 2014.
Rod remains committed to the company he founded, and can usually be found at one of the Homestead Homes construction sites when he isn’t in the office planning the next Homestead Homes project.
Knock Down Rebuild
‘Why should you knock down rebuild?’
Your needs change as your family grows. When you first bought your home 5, 10 or 15 years ago, things were different. Now, your needs and expectations have changed and it’s time to make a decision about your family home. Your options include renovating, knocking down and rebuilding on your current block or moving house. Each decision has merit, depending on the priorities of your family. There are times when renovating your home, upgrading a kitchen or bathroom, is all you need to do. However, this may only solve the problem in the short term.
‘Many of Homestead Homes’ clients choose to knock down and rebuild with us because they love living where they live.’
They enjoy their lifestyle, the street, distance to schools, shops and work, friends and family. Knocking down and rebuilding allows you to get the advantages of a new custom designed home for your family as well as staying in the area you love, often for a lower price than renovation.
The Knock Down Rebuild Process:
Design research – walk through our display homes to get ideas for your family’s new home.
Obtain approval – through the NSW Housing Code or the traditional approval process. Each of Homestead Homes’ houses is designed to meet or exceed the Complying Development rules.
Selecting materials – get your family involved in colours and finishes for your new home.
Demolition – Homestead can demolish your existing house and clear the block to ensure the site is left in the best possible condition for building.
Construction – the foundations, frames, brickwork and roof are constructed.
Interiors, fitting and fixtures – the finishing touches are completed according to your design specifications.
