The Scenic Rim has made its mark as a place of quality housing and construction, taking out multiple awards at the prestigious 2019 Master Builders (Gold Coast) Housing & Construction Awards.
Canungra-based family business Hobbs Building & Interiors won three trophies and the construction company behind Kalbar renovation project Herrmann House also took out an award.
Hobbs Director Luke Hobbs was named Rising Star and the company also won Housing – Individual Home $251k – $350k for its ‘Project Mundoolun’ build and Housing – Best Use of Sloping Site for its ‘Project Macdonnell’ build on Tamborine Mountain.
Mr Hobbs said it was an honour for Hobbs Building & Interiors to be recognised.
“We operate with a strong mission to be the preferred Scenic Rim custom builder delivering quality projects of modern country-style, while offering value-add expertise to eco-friendly homeowners,” he said.
Entrepreneur April Cornwell and her husband Paul Cornwell are behind Herrmann House and also own the stunningly restored White Chapel and Black Hall wedding and conference venues up the road.
The Cornwells moved an original 1880s house from nearby Munbilla to George Street, Kalbar and combined it with the historic Chant’s Cottage. They named their lovingly restored work, ‘Herrmann House’ to honour former owners of the house shifted from Munbilla and to keep history alive.
