Taranaki’s finest homes revealed

A new home build in New Plymouth has been named this year’s top Taranaki home, winning the Supreme Award in the Taranaki Registered Master Builders 2013 House of the Year.

New Plymouth’s Terry Clegg Builders Limited scooped five regional awards, including the Registered Master Builders Supreme Award for the House of the Year as well as winning the Category and Gold Award in the PlaceMakers New Homes $350,000 - $450,000 category. The company also secured the Heart of the Home Kitchen Award and the Plumbing World Bathroom Excellence Award.

The judges said, “This new home has been cleverly integrated with an old workshop through continuing the new cedar boarded frontage across the front of the existing structure as a false façade.

“Custom-made fittings and joinery finished in a high gloss white lacquer throughout the home are exceptional. Boasting a cleverly located roof skylight over the living room and a dining section of the kitchen joinery supported by a single spine of laminated glass, the builder’s workmanship is outstanding.

“Successfully completing a modern structure to be proud of, this home is clearly a winner of the Supreme Award.”

The region’s builders were recognised by members of the Taranaki Registered Master Builders and the local building industry at the Quality Hotel Plymouth International on Friday, 9 August.

There were 10 Gold Award winners from the Taranaki area, which will now be assessed alongside Gold Award winners from the 10 other regions of the competition to find the National Gold Reserve finalists, which will be announced in September.

National category winners, Registered Master Builders Supreme Awards for the Renovation of the Year and the House of the Year will be announced at a gala dinner in Auckland in November.

The Awards are made possible through the support of PlaceMakers, James Hardie, GIB, Nulook, Future-Proof Building, Carters, ITM, Plumbing World, Resene and Westpac.
