Innovative Registered Master Builders

Registered master builders are an innovative lot. To see an example of this you need look no further than this issue where we feature long-standing Tauranga member Shannon Moyle who is building a “movable” 880 sq m, three-level home — complete with seven-car garage, internal elevator and a swimming pool on the top floor!

 

The whole house is built on concrete teflon skids, allowing it to be moved within 14 days if necessary due to its location in a “Coastal Hazard Zone”.

 

Read more about this impressive engineering feature on page 12.

 

The excitement is building for this year’s House of the Year competition as more and more Association gala dinners take place around the country.

 

We have a full round-up of the latest batch of events, and a whole lot more besides.
