Dream home nails national building award Kumeu coup: House owners Cameron and Justine Smith and Dale and Allan Wallace of Allan Wallace Builders with their national award for their category at the Registered Master Builders PlaceMakers 2010 House of the Year. Bucket list goal: This Huapai home was a dream come true for its young family. By RANI TIMOTI A building company has nailed a national award. Kumeu s Allan Wal- lace Builders Limited secured the win in the new homes $350,000 to $450,000 category of the Registered Master Buil- ders PlaceMakers 2010 House of the Year. The designer of the Huapai home was Leuschke Kahn Archi- tect Ltd. Allan and his wife Dale were buzzing over their national award in the country s premier building competition. It was a fantastic night and our clients are so happy, says Dale. Their son Jono, now dubbed golden hands , was instrumental as the foreman for the project. For Allan, a chippie for 45 years, loyalty is important and he always relies on his regular sub- contractors for jobs in the nor-west. Justine and Cameron Smith say their house was a much-dreamed about and long saved for project -- and can be one of their goals ticked off their bucket list. We made a decision pretty early on in our marriage to try to live on some land and we wanted our kids to have a pretty old fashioned lifestyle with lots of wide open spaces. Living in a little cot- tage for seven years, the couple planned their house and were amazed to see the building team realise their dreams. It was really import- ant that this was a house that worked for us because we want to live here for a very long time. We needed a house that could accommodate the way we work as a family, we wanted a real Kiwi home, and it had to look good on our land, Jus- tine says. The Smiths were appreciative of Allan s established building experience and pro- fessionalism to the job. The guys who built this house were a great team. We loved the way they welcomed us, especially the kids, to the project as that helped it feel more like home before we even got into it. Judges say the refreshing design and planning, along with superb craftsmanship, made it a natural winner of its category. There was a lot of innovative detailing from flashings around exposed rafters, to the use of exposed bolted trusses inside the home, and saw cuts in the pigmented slab co-ordinated to cen- tre on the structure -- unusual features to see in a home in this category. The builder obviously took great care and thought in executing these complex features, which added real charac- ter to the home. This home sits beauti- fully in its landscape delivering a farm ver- nacular design for the 21st century.
