Tear Down and Build with Heartland Builders

When we hear the words “tear down,” we naturally think of something coming to an end. But at Heartland Builders, this phrase is all about beginnings. In fact, “tear down” has as much to do with the word “up” than it does with “down.”

If there’s already an existing structure on the piece of land you love for your brand new home, we do something called a Home Tear Down. Just as promised, this process is Easy. Fun. and Fast(er than you think). Take a look at how we give your home a complete do-over and turn it into the home you’ve always dreamed of:

Your Vision

This first step is always to understand your vision inside and out. Whether the existing home on the land you’ve found has been in your family for years, or is new to you, we have the tools and expertise needed to take care of it. A living space that’s not up to speed with today’s standards or your needs is not the right home for you — leave it to us to build the real deal.

Before Our Vision…

Of course, respect for the land is our utmost priority. We inform your neighbors of what we’re doing before we do it, so no one is blindsided or unaware. In addition, we repurpose any and all reusable material before we start, and ensure that we meet the requirements of the municipality.

3D Design

Once we’re squared away on your expectations and others’ boundaries, the real fun begins. As a copilot on the design journey, your input, preferences, and style are always at the forefront of our work. Before the process concludes, you’ll get to see your home in 3D and how it sits on your land. This is an awesome opportunity to get a real-life sneak preview of the place that you’ll be calling home in no time.


When it comes to constructing your home, Heartland Builders provides the smoothest process possible. We guarantee to act as good neighbors, good stewards of the land, and good builders who value safe, high-quality, energy-efficient homes for the incredible homeowners we work with. Your finished product will reflect you and your style inside and out, and improve the future for you and your family.

At Heartland Builders, tearing down doesn’t mean losing something — it means gaining everything. After all, what goes down comes back up! We can’t wait to work with you and bring your dream home to life.
