Big gongs for builders
North 2 South Executive Homes took home several Master Builders Great Southern Excellence Awards at Saturday night’s awards, including the prestigious country home of the year.
Its stunning McLeod Street, Mira Mar, build won over the judges for its use of site and the quality of the project.
North 2 South owner Haydn Glendinning said he was overjoyed with the win.
“It’s been a big year for all my crew,” he said.
“We weren’t expecting as big a year as we had.
“We had three homes in the last financial year, and were very fortunate enough to have great clients, which helps.
“I couldn’t be more pleased for my workers, my whole crew, my wife — this goes down to everybody.
“Everybody down at the suppliers, my workers, my wife, as I said in my speech. She’s everything to our business, she runs the show pretty much, and my boys . . . they were crucial to the success of this year.”
The judges said: “Built as a coastal escape for a farming family, this home offers topend, maintenance-free, easy living, which is perfect for those relaxing getaways.
“Designed to maximise the stunning ocean views while capturing the natural light and warmth from the Albany sun; the addition of a lift ensures that this home will be providing family memories well into retirement.”
