Local luxury home wins award
IT WAS a luxury home on The Range that saw husband and wife team Matthew and Amanda Day have their names called as the winners of the House of the Year award.
On Friday night the co-owners of Day To Day Constructions attended the Master Builders Central Queensland Housing & Construction Awards where they took home the prize for building the House of the Year.
Matthew and Amanda, both born and bred in Rockhampton, have owned their own construction business for the last 11 years and said it was the first time they had one the category.
"It was such a surprise when our names were called,” Amanda said.
"We were already celebrating because we had won the housing award for an individual home priced between $651,000-$750,000 and then to win house of the year, it was such a great feeling.”
The Rockhampton home that won the couple the award is a four bedroom, two bathroom, open-plan living luxury home located in Agnes St, The Range.
It boasts views of the Botanic Gardens and Gracemere, capturing views from high up on The Range.
The home was built last year and was finished just before Christmas.
Amanda said it took about nine months for them to build and was specifically built to suit the owner's needs and lifestyle.
"This home was architecturally designed so we had the freedom to be different and offer something unique,” she said.
"I think that's maybe why it won the category because it was so different and it's just such a beautiful home with some unique qualities.”
Matthew said he couldn't be more proud of the team's achievement.
"We are really privileged to have a team of skilled, loyal and reliable tradesman and subcontractors behind us,” he said.
