The 2012 HIA Awards was held last weekend and as it turned out, we couldn’t be happier – walking away winning the 2012 HIA Best Custom Built Home in the $350,000 – $475,000 category.
It was a big weekend for Aaron & Jess, Our Builders and Your Building Broker. Together, we managed to win the coveted 2012 HIA Award against a lot of tough competition in the Best Custom Built Home $350,000 – $475,000.
Aaron & Jess were actually our very first client when we launched Your Building Broker back in July 2010. Aaron has experience working with lots of home builders Australia wide as he is part owner of a software business that services the home building industry.
So when he approached me and said he’d like to build a custom home, I was pretty happy. Knowing he was putting his trust in us to do the right thing meant a lot, especially given the amount of connections he has.
The actual piece of land Aaron & Jess bought came with several design challenges, mainly due to the extensive easement and the need to capture the views from the park lands at the back of the block. It was also a battleaxe block, meaning there needed to be consideration for vehicles turning.
There was also a few issues right at the beginning stages of building – something we don’t like to hear. The developer hadn’t connected the sewer properly but the builders and their plumber made a big difference in getting it resolved quickly.
Speaking of quickly – their 2 storey home took less than 10 months to build! A real credit again to our builders who do a fantastic job and deliver on promises. If you’re wanting to see what the finished home look like you can see more images that were taken right as Aaron & Jess moved in.
All in all as the owner and Managing Director of Your Building Broker, this award represents what we offer – our great home design service coupled with our industry knowledge and builders who we’ve found and audited for great construction quality and of course you, our clients who trust us to build your wonderful homes.
Finally, congratulations to all the other winners and finalists at this years 2012 HIA Awards.
