Exquisite attention to detail and magnificent quality has seen local company Dixon Construction recognised at the region’s premier building awards.
The company won Best Country Home at the 2018 Master Builders-Bankwest Building Excellence Awards on Saturday, September 1, for their work on Lot 26 Merivale Road.
The rural home, 12 kilometres east of Esperance, hosts glorious views overlooking the ocean and was built sourcing most of the trades locally.
The home spans a massive 1500 square metres and includes sweeping verandas, a heated indoor swimming pool and sauna and is powered by solar panels supported by smart wiring technology.
Master Builders regional awards judge Charlie Baggetta said the builders honoured had drawn on quality local tradespeople as well as specialists from further afield to produce outstanding results.
Mr Baggetta said judges were struck by the quality of the home, which was built on a difficult clay site.
“It is a very unusual farm home with living quarters in different sections of the building to give private space to each of the people sharing it,” he said.
“Dixon Construction sourced most of the trades locally and the workmanship on all the carpentry, joinery and cabinet work is exceptional.”
The home also received awards for the work on the ceilings, carpentry, plasterboard lining and roofing, something Mr Baggetta said showed the consistently high standards throughout the building.
Master Builders regional liaison officer Doug Backhouse said the awards were a beacon for those considering a building project in the Goldfields-Esperance region.
“Although Goldfields-Esperance has the smallest in population of the regions, the quality of workmanship and expertise of local builders matches the best in the state,” he said.
“All builders should be very proud of their entries into the awards this year.”
Award winners will be considered for the 2019 statewide awards.
