What Our Clients Say

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to build a home in Cairns?

As you might imagine, the average cost of building a home in Cairns will vary from property to property. The size, features of the property, and complexity of the build will all contribute to overall costs involved in building a new home.

At Cougar Homes, we aim to provide high-quality houses in Cairns that you and your family will love – at every budget. Check out our design range page to see some of our most popular designs and to get a better idea of costs.

Is it cheaper to build or buy a house?

It's one of the most common questions that we receive: is it cheaper to buy or build a house? In truth, there are a number of factors that will play a role here, but as a rule, it is often cheaper to buy a block of land and then build a home on it instead of purchasing a pre-built, established home. While buying an existing home may be easier, building a new home means that you will be moving into a home that you can enjoy immediately without thinking about your next reno project.

How long does it take to build a house?

Again, it depends on the complexity of the project. On average, it can take anywhere from 4-9-months to build a home. Depending on the complexity of the build and external factors such as weather and access to materials, the process may take longer and shorter.

Before commencing work, our team will be able to provide you a more accurate estimation on timeframes. We understand that waiting for your new home to be finished can be excruciating, which is why our team will keep you in the loop each step of the way so that you can plan your move when everything is ready.

Can I customise standard home designs?

Absolutely. While we have a range of beautiful designs to choose from within our website, we understand that for the average family, building a new home comes down to more than choosing floor plans and fixtures. Every family is different and will have a unique set of wants and needs for their dream property. We want to be able to create the perfect home for everyone – which is why we offer flexibility across home designs, styles, and finishes.

Cougar Homes employs a team of talented and experienced construction builders, draftsmen, and designers to help you come up with your ideal property in Cairns. We make sure each home is built to your standards and requirements every step of the way.
