Winning is all in detail
Matamata-based building company Gudsell Designer Homes were proud winners, receiving Gold for the $250,000 – $350,000 category, at the recent Registered Master Builders’ Waikato region House of the Year 2012 Awards.
Peter and Matt Gudsell were also thrilled to be awarded Overall Category Gold, beating strong opposition.
This is the second year running that Peter and Matt Gudsell have achieved top awards for all their entries.
These awards range throughout the categories, from under $250,000 to $1,000,000, proving to them and the judges that high quality finishing and attention to detail is paramount in all their building projects.
This year’s entry is a house which has everything one could want, built to a compact 235sqm.
Outside it features aged-looking exterior brick cladding, in a sandy colour with rough-cast pointing.
Band-sawn cedar above the windows has been back flashed to avoid the use of scribers, creating the ‘‘old English’’ look.
Inside, the inviting interior features varied ceiling heights, bold and traditional finishing lines, classic mouldings and a gorgeous colour scheme.
The kitchen is an entertainer’s dream, with a spacious scullery, providing ample storage and a generous breakfast bar, designed from engineered stone.
The bathroom and ensuite have been well appointed with lavish tiles and vanities.
There is ample storage with a walk-in hot water cupboard, a separate storage room and even attic storage above the garage.
The property will now be judged in the National Master Builders competition by a different panel of judges.
