Western Suburbs Weekly - - Coastal & Country -

A POD-STYLE fam­ily home in Quin­dalup has been named Best Coun­try Home at the 2017 Master Builders Build­ing Ex­cel­lence Awards - South West.

The four-bed­room, three-bath­room Built By S home in­cludes a range of build­ing ma­te­ri­als in­tended to blend the house into the sur­rounds, in­clud­ing lime­stone rammed earth, Hebel wall pan­els, shadow clad and corten steel cladding, pol­ished con­crete floors and full-height north-fac­ing doors.

The open-plan liv­ing area fea­tures a fire­place, un­der­floor heat­ing, su­perb cab­i­netry de­sign, wrap around spot­ted gum deck, and view­ing plat­form.

South West re­gional judge Char­lie Baggetta said the in­no­va­tive home showed ex­em­plary qual­ity crafts­man­ship across a num­ber of trades.

“The com­bi­na­tion of qual­ity work­man­ship was on dis­play with the cab­i­netry, the straight clean lines of the rammed earth and lime­stone, the pol­ished con­crete floors, plus the paint­ing and tiling, all of which were main­tained to the high­est stan­dards,” he said.

“The abil­ity of the builder, to­gether with his trades­men, to achieve the ex­cel­lence in work­man­ship dis­played in this res­i­dence was the de­cid­ing fac­tor in it win­ning the Best Coun­try Home.”

Master Builders South West re­gional man­ager Geoff Bo­sus­tow said the awards were a great suc­cess.
