Top 100 homes in running for Registered Master Builders 2015 House of the Year honours

299

Registered Master Builder’s Chief Executive David Kelly says there’s real diversity among the finalists this year.

“There’s an English style country home with grand stature, a 1970s beachfront bach that’s been given a new lease of life, and homes made of the most sustainable materials available. There are homes that exude wow factor, and others whose excellence is only visible to the trained eye.”

Representing the top entrants in this year’s regional competitions held in July and August, the Gold Reserve National Finalists will now be re-judged by the national judging panel to find out who will take out the ultimate accolades of the Supreme Awards for House of the Year and Renovation of the Year.

Finalists also have the opportunity to win one of the 12 national category awards, as well as separate awards for lifestyle categories such as best kitchen, best bathroom and best outdoor space. There’s also an award for the most sustainable home.

The results will be announced at a gala dinner in Auckland on Saturday, 14 November.

“We’re very proud that we are continuing to see impeccable work from the builders named as this year’s Gold Reserve finalists,” David says.

“Building quality homes is central to what we do as Registered Master Builders, and the impressive workmanship and high standard of the homes at this stage of the competition prove that quality is still our highest priority,” he says.

The National Gold Reserve Finalists’ properties will now be judged again over the next few months before the National Category, Lifestyle and Supreme Award winners are announced in November.

The Awards are made possible through the support of PlaceMakers, Master Build Services, James Hardie, GIB, Nulook, SafetyMate, Carters, ITM, Plumbing World, Resene, Westpac and Mitre 10.
