Win­ning is all in de­tail

Matamata Chronicle - - Building -

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.

Mas­ter­piece: This year Peter and Matt Gud­sell’s en­try was this house which has ev­ery­thing one could want, built to a com­pact 235sqm.

Ideal: The kitchen is an en­ter­tainer’s dream, with a spa­cious scullery, pro­vid­ing am­ple stor­age, and a gen­er­ous break­fast bar, de­signed from en­gi­neered stone.
