Our Building Process
Our experienced team is here to guide you through the process, every step of the way. When you build your home with Cunic Homes, you can be assured that our flexibility, reliability and our absolute focus on quality will ensure 100% satisfaction from the design and planning stages, through to completion of your project.
Making it easier than ever to build your dream home.
We live in a visual world and let’s face it, it can be hard to see what your home is going to look like from a set of plans.
Our home is our greatest investment, yet we never have the power to see what it looks like until it is finished. For a lot of people who have built, the finished home doesn’t always match the picture they had in their heads. This is why Cunic Homes have decided to make virtual walkthroughs available to our clients on request.
Make sure you enquire about a virtual walkthrough, designed to your specific plans and selections, next time your speak with our friendly team.
You now have the power to see what your dream home will look like before we even start building. We think this is a game changer.
Cunic Homes are now the proud owners of two additional HIA Awards! After a successful award evening recently, we are glad to still be 100% Tasmanian owned and after more than 40 years, continuing to build award winning quality homes across Southern Tasmania.

At Cunic Homes, the personal service provided by a reputable, professional and award winning builder, is the key difference that makes us a standout provider of quality homes. But don’t just take our word for it, read what our clients have to say about building with Cunic Homes:
“Brett and his team at Cunic Builders created a stunning home for us on the water, exceeded all of our expectations and did not let us down. The communication, attention to detail and most of all his expedience in getting the job done on time, and without complications was a brilliant result. It was the quality of design, construction and finish that was important to us, and Cunic certainly delivered this with our new home – we thoroughly recommend Brett and the team.”
“Love the finish – love the views! The whole appearance and feel of our Cunic home is just awesome. It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with Brett and all staff involved. Everyone has been so easy to deal with and all have been absolutely superb in detailing and explaining every step to us along the way, and assisted us in several instances with fast tracking processes. Thank you for taking the time to listen … and for your focus and commitment on “getting it right”!”

Frequently Asked Questions
What type of maintenance is available with my new home?
Your builder will provide maintenance for up to 13 weeks from when you take occupancy of your dream home.
Is my New Home insured while my builder is constructing it?
Yes, your house is insured under your builder’s “All Risk Construction” policy. Please note that the insurance expires upon issue of the Certificate of Occupancy.
The foundations are complete and my new home looks too small will it fit?
Yes, your new home will fit on the concrete or timber floor. It may appear too small, but this is a popular misconception at this stage of construction.
Can I have a key to my new home so I can access it when I want?
Your builder will be more than happy to take you through your new home. To arrange a viewing, contact our friendly staff during business hours with your requirements. With your safety in mind, we are unable to allow access to a construction site unaccompanied.
Can I discuss or instruct the builder’s sub-contractors when I visit the site as pre-arranged?
It is better if you do not discuss the work with sub-contractors. Any instructions or changes given to sub-contractors must only come from your builder. Due to requirements of the builder’s insurance policy, you should not visit the site unless you have permission from the builder.
What if I want to vary something in my dream home after signing the contract? What is the procedure?
It is essential to call your contact at Cunic Homes who will put your variations in writing for you to approve. This will ensure all changes are captured. Refer to our special conditions about variations which are requested after contract signing and colour selection.
Do post contract variations delay work on my dream home and cost more?
Variations requested after the colour selection has been completed can delay the progress and will cost more than adjustments made before the plans and specifications are finalised. It is better to avoid post-contract changes wherever possible.
When can my builder give me an approximate completion date of my dream home?
The completion of your new home is dependent upon Council requirements, weather, availability of materials, variations to the contract, etc. We can, however, give an approximate date of completion once we reach the fix out stage.
Can I keep any leftover building materials? What is the procedure?
Sometimes you may be able to keep excess materials (eg. bricks) but you must not do so unless you have written permission from the builder.
Who arranges connection of Electricity, Gas and Telephone?
Generally, it is the owner’s responsibility to arrange these services.
