Exceeding Expectations, that's our promise


Garwood Homes was founded in 2005 by Dean and Denita Garwood. With plenty of experience in the local building industry Dean and his team at Garwood Homes strive for 100% customer satisfaction for all of their clients on all of their projects.

Backed by over 20 years’ experience, Garwood Homes promise we will exceed your expectations. New homes, renovations, extensions, or smaller projects, our focus is you, the client!

Our goal is to keep our team reasonably small so we can deliver on our promise of quality workmanship every time. Our team of qualified builders are experience in building new homes in Northern Tasmania.

As members of the Independent Building Network (IBN), we have access to resources and suppliers that some of the smaller builders miss out on. By bringing together a number of smaller builders into a larger group, the IBN has access to the buying power and resources that the large building and construction firms have – however we are able to stay small and deliver all the customer service benefits related.

The IBN also delivers flexibility to our new home builders, you can bring your own plans or we can use some of the great existing IBN plans. We can also easily make changes to the IBN plans that suit your preference for external façade and internal fixtures and finishes.

We know that we are competitive on price and there is no loss on the quality of our finished homes.

Backed by our 15 years of experience, our promise is we will exceed your expectations


New Homes


We work with you to ensure 100% satisfaction when you move into your new home. Backed by our experience our promise is we will exceed your expectations.

Building a new home can be a stressful time, so it is our focus to make this as an enjoyable experience as possible. Our qualified and experienced team of builders will help you through the whole process and give you peace of mind that your new home is a quality job at the right price.

Delivering the best value for money, a hassle free building process and superior quality workmanship is the focus at Garwood Homes. Our team endeavour to deliver on every project the very best in quality, design and craftsmanship, whatever the budget. From small to large, single storey or double, contemporary to period, every new home is built individually to the highest quality with your specific needs and lifestyle in mind.

At Garwood Homes we believe customer service is paramount so we work closely with our new home clients, providing feedback every step of the way, working with them on ideas, ensuring budgets are met, and most importantly communicating with them throughout the whole process.

Renovations & Extensions


Transforming your current home into your dream home is a reality for us. We can deliver on your requirements or help you with ideas and options to upgrade your home.

We can design and build any new renovation or extension to your existing home. We can assist you with ideas for quality fittings and finishes that will really improve your current home so that is a pleasure for you to live there.

The location of where you live may really suit your family needs but your current home may need an update or your family may have outgrown the size of your property. There can be significant cost savings to stay at your existing property instead of selling and moving to another less convenient location. Garwood Homes can assist you with a minimum fuss renovation or extension process, and this low stress build starts with really understanding your needs and minimising any disruption to your current premises.

We trusted Garwood Homes to build our dream home and we are so pleased with the result. The Garwoods were outstanding from the start of the project, assisting with practical and clever ideas during the planning and fitting selection process. Dean was continually providing expert guidance throughout the build and accommodated a couple of layout changes along the way. We are exceptionally impressed with the attention to detail, level of finish and professionalism of Dean and his team. We couldn’t recommend Garwood Homes highly enough!

Simon Faulkner

We had Dean and his team do a number of ‘random’ jobs at our home and they were nothing short of fantastic. A new shed, large driveway and the tennis court base. Communication was brilliant, always contacting us to let us know what was going on and where progress was at. Ideas and support also brilliant, we were unsure on how we should go about these projects and their support helped us make the right decisions with no stress. And the team, which made a big difference to us, were extremely friendly, always willing to have a chat and let us know what was going on. We couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

Andrew & Amanda Cowley

My husband and I built our first new home a few years ago and chose to have Garwood homes help us build a home that not only catered for our very busy lifestyle but to also be a warm and comfortable environment for our two children. As we had not been down the road of choosing what materials, colour palate design, concept ideas etc before, we found it very reassuring that Dean and Denita were happy to assist and guide us in any of the tricky and somewhat overwhelming decisions. They made building our home a pleasurable experience, and made what seemed impossible achievable. The "please call me anytime for any matter" motto was very satisfying . At no time did my husband and I feel that we were not up to date on all of the building stages, this made the process very smooth and no stress, and we were able to stay within our budget!! Garwood homes treat their clients with the utmost respect and have proven that honest hardworking builders do still exist today. We have no hesitations on recommending Garwood Homes to potential home builders in the future. Their Prompt, professional and friendly service should be commended

Callum and Hannah Howard - Grindelwald

It is very clear that Garwood Homes values their customers. Dean has been great to work with and really went above and beyond for us. He took every concern seriously and handled all issues promptly, no matter how small. This was our first experience with new construction and the friendly and professional team at Garwood Homes made it smooth and painless. Garwood Homes build excellent quality homes at a great price and we would definitely recommend them to others.

All homes are guaranteed against structural defects for the period of 7 years from the date we apply for your Warranty Insurance.

Your Builder will generally provide maintenance for up to 13 weeks from when you take occupancy of your dream home.

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.

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.

No, we cannot hand over our builder’s master key at any time. Your builder will, however, arrange for the house to be opened for you by prior arrangement, during business hours, just contact the builder with your requirements.

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.

Variations must be put in writing and given to the builder. Refer to our special conditions about variations which are requested after contract signing and colour selection.

Variations requested after the colour selection has been completed will always delay progress and will cost significantly more than adjustments made before the plans and specifications are finalised. It is better to avoid post-contract changes.

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.

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.

Generally, it is the owner’s responsibility to arrange these items. Keep in touch with your builder to find out the correct time to arrange these connections.

You should arrange applicable cover for your house and contents from the day you take occupancy of your new dream home.

We are available by phone during normal business hours (Monday – Friday 8.30 am to 5.30 pm), or by mobile if there is an emergency after these hours. We ask that you respect our private time which we prefer to devote to our personal and family matters.
