Taupo Show Home wins silver in Master Builders House of the Year

17 August 2015

The entire Generation Homes family is thrilled to be celebrating with Paul Marshall and his Rotorua/Taupo team after winning silver in an important section of the Bay Of Plenty-Central Plateau Registered Master Builders 2015 House of the Year Awards.

What made winning silver in the GIB Show Home Award even sweeter for the team was the fact that it was the very first time they had entered such an awards event.

“To win silver straight off the bat was really great considering this was the first time we’ve entered any awards like this,” he said.

“Generation Homes is built on the trust customers have in us, and awards like this make that confidence they can have in us a little bit more visible. We will definitely be entering more awards and hopefully be able to achieve some more great results.”

The announcement was made on Saturday 15 August. Celebrations on the day were lively, but kept fairly low-key because of another high profile event.

“We definitely enjoyed a few quiet beers when we heard of the win, but the Bledisloe Cup decider was on that night, so we the celebrations stayed pretty low key so that everyone could get to where they’d arranged to watch the game,” says Paul

Judges spent around three hours going over the Wharewaka Point , checking on overall design, finishing and flow.

The two-story, four bedroom home features a stairwell and hidden lift which connects the three downstairs bedrooms and family bathroom to open-plan living upstairs. Upstairs makes use of the fabulous views for al fresco living by using a large covered in area connected to pillars featuring local rock.

Paul is proud of the team effort critical to earning the award.  “My name’s on the award, but this is all about team effort and pulling together – like everything we do. Everyone who worked on this deserves their name to be on that award – but that would have to a pretty large-sized award.”
