editor’s letter

With advances in computer modelling and home builder websites offering 3D walk-throughs, it’s now much easier to get a sense of what your new home will look like once it’s built. But despite such welcome developments in technology, there is no substitute for walking through a house, roaming from room to room and trying it on for size. With a custom build, of course, that won’t be possible, but many project home builders have stunningly styled display homes, grouped together in villages, you can visit. Display villages are growing in number and in the breadth and diversity of homes on offer. Visiting display homes allows you to get a first-hand feel for the size of the rooms and the flow of the floor plan; to assess how much natural light the…

it takes a village

Websites brimming with stunning images of beautifully styled homes, each supported by a detailed floor plan, are useful, but nothing compares to exploring a house first-hand. That’s where display villages come in. There really isn’t any substitute for having a good nose around a house. You can experience the flow of the floor plan, see how much natural light the home allows in, imagine how it will be cooking in the kitchen or barbecuing in the alfresco, and get a true sense of the quality of the finishes and appliances. Display villages are by no means a new concept but they are certainly growing in number and sophistication. The calibre and diversity of homes is increasing and the on-site facilities are ever-improving. We asked three home building experts to share their…

celebrating excellence

Held annually, the HIA-CSR Queensland Housing Awards recognise the skill, commitment and professionalism of Housing Industry Association (HIA) Queensland members.

The awards would not be possible without the valued partners who support industry events such as this and, to them, HIA extends its heartfelt thanks.

jewel in the crown

This impressive luxury abode is the jewel in the crown of Castle Glenn Homes. In 2017, it not only won for the prestige builder the coveted title of Queensland Home of the Year in the HIA-CSR Queensland Housing Awards, it also won the Custom Built Home, Outdoor Living Project and Steel Frame Project of the Year categories. The creation of this spectacular two-storey waterfront residence overlooking the canals of Raby Bay was, in every sense, a Castle Glenn Homes’ family affair. The design, a contemporary masterpiece capitalising on the unsurpassed view of the canals, is the creation of Dean Bolger. Dean’s father, Glenn, built the home to the highest standards, and Glenn’s wife, Toni, brought the home to life, creating stunning interior and exterior spaces of refined design and timeless elegance.

height of luxury

Architecturally designed and faultlessly constructed, this luxurious Hamptonsinspired residence didn’t just exceed the expectations of the extremely proud homeowners, it wowed the judges of both the 2017 HIA-CSR North Queensland Housing Awards and the 2017 HIA-Austral Bricks Mackay Housing, Kitchen & Bathroom Awards. As a result, CCF Homes received a swag of honours, including North Queensland Home of the Year and Mackay Home of the Year, as well as three Custom Built Home awards. Set on one of the highest hills in Gladstone, this luxe 655m² home, dubbed The Aboda, was designed to encompass 280-degree panoramic views of Mount Larcom, the harbour and the city of Gladstone. This was achieved with the use of expansive rear and side decks and large well-placed windows and doors. The home, which was set over…
