Full Video Script Below;

00:00:00,000 –> 00:00:03,290
Hello & welcome to the Bayside demolition cost calculator

00:00:03,300 –> 00:00:06,190
tutorial we go through the 12 questions to help,

00:00:06,210 –> 00:00:10,700
you get a knockdown rebuild estimate,
the house we are using today

00:00:10,700 –> 00:00:15,790
is 131 Wallace Street in Geelong West

00:00:15,800 –> 00:00:22,390
so we have got the postcode put in here it is 3218

00:00:22,400 –> 00:00:27,290
There are three things we have to measure house size,
yard size & shed size

00:00:27,300 –> 00:00:33,090
that we use Google Earth there is a
measuring tool to the side here,

00:00:33,100 –> 00:00:35,690
so you can see we’ve got
the size of the house

00:00:35,700 –> 00:00:42,190
size of the shed
and the size of the yard to be cleared,

00:00:42,200 –> 00:00:45,790
so we just put them in our calculator,

00:00:45,800 –> 00:00:51,890
and now we have to find out the wall structure,
roof material & main foundations.

00:00:51,920 –> 00:00:56,410
Does it contain asbestos?
And what’s it made out of? So here if

00:00:56,400 –> 00:00:59,490
we look at style the house,
we can see some weatherboards.

00:01:00,000 –> 00:01:06,690
You can see the 1960s 70s style build
and just down here.

00:01:06,700 –> 00:01:09,030
We can see the shed is made of brick.

00:01:13,520 –> 00:01:17,140
So now you’re back into our cost calculator.

00:01:16,400 –> 00:01:19,890
What is the wall structure weatherboard, for roof

00:01:19,900 –> 00:01:23,490
material with we can actually see this on
Google Earth, its tin

00:01:23,500 –> 00:01:30,290
main foundation im assuming stumps
based on the design year built 1960 to 85.

00:01:30,300 –> 00:01:34,490
Does it contain asbestos? Asbestos is pretty

00:01:34,500 –> 00:01:37,890
commonly found in these houses doesn’t look like it.

00:01:37,900 –> 00:01:40,490
Was just going to say yes to make sure we maybe pick

00:01:40,500 –> 00:01:44,490
that up if there is some can’t see what’s in the yard.
It’s a pretty clear yard

00:01:44,500 –> 00:01:50,890
so we will go a few small shrubs.
If the yard is messy go further down the list.

00:01:50,900 –> 00:01:54,690
It’s very hard to describe.
All the different things that you find in the yard.

00:01:54,700 –> 00:01:59,690
So the messier the yard, the more expensive it is to clear
sometimes, it can be more than the house

00:01:59,780 –> 00:02:05,190
so we will go a few small shrubs.
Vehicle access this one can be a little tricky

00:02:05,200 –> 00:02:10,490
If you go back to Google Earth & we can see,
it’s not very big street but there’s room

00:02:10,500 –> 00:02:12,590
in there for a decent size truck,

00:02:12,610 –> 00:02:17,500
so we’ll go good access rather then very good,

00:02:17,500 –> 00:02:24,790
but it’s not too bad.
Whoops i forgot to choose brick for the shed.

00:02:24,800 –> 00:02:28,090
Get estimate. So here.

00:02:28,100 –> 00:02:32,390
We go total cost 15k to17k thousand,

00:02:32,400 –> 00:02:36,890
this doesn’t include your permits.
Permits in the Geelong area somewhere around 2k

00:02:36,900 –> 00:02:43,090
So there you go, that’s the first
step on your knockdown rebuild budgeting.

00:02:43,100 –> 00:02:48,690

or buy contact us,

00:02:48,700 –> 00:02:50,190
Just to make sure you don’t get caught out.

00:02:50,200 –> 00:02:54,390
Asbestos is a big one,
sometimes the external cladding can be asbestos.

00:02:54,400 –> 00:03:00,000
You might know know so you will go bang .
There we go next. Theres an extra few thousand

00:03:00,000 –> 00:03:04,890
So be careful, they’re.
