Roseleigh triumphs with custom design

AWARD WINNERS: Roseleigh Homes’ Craig Chugg and Brad Chugg with happy client Prue Cox, whose new Warragul home won the company ‘Best Custom Home’ in the $400,000-$500,000 range in the Master Builders Victoria Regional Building Awards.

THOSE who have been clients of Roseleigh Homes won’t be surprised to learn they’ve again been recognised as one of the best in the business.

The company recently won ‘Best Custom Home’ in the $400,000-$500,000 range in the Master Builders Victoria Regional Building Awards for their project at 37 Stoddarts Road, Warragul. 

Designed by Brad Chugg, Roseleigh Homes’ general manager and chief designer, the winning design focused on meeting the client’s individual specifications “which would reflect her personal style, whilst utilising the elevated position of the corner block upon which the house sits”.

“The exterior of the home incorporates the use of render, James Hardie Axon cladding in complementary Colorbond colors of Shale Grey and Monument which are softened by the use of feature Silvertop Ash cladding on the garage facade and porch,” he said.

The use of render and cladding is also combined to enhance the design aesthetic, highlighting the pavilion-like feel of the home. Contrasting colours have been used externally to accentuate the form and clean lines of the house.

With polished concrete floors and a light-filled open plan kitchen, meals and living area, the raked ceiling rises up from the kitchen to the living side of the building to 3.9 metres in height. 

Oversized windows ensure the main living area of the home is open, light and bright. 

Boasting double glazed windows, specialised ceiling and wall insulation, LED downlights, and loads of other features, means the home not only looks good but has an impressive 6.1-star energy rating.

“We pride ourselves on personalised service and have been building in Gippsland and the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne for the last 28 years,” Brad said.

“The quality of construction, not only in finishes but also the structure, is always the most important factor for Roseleigh Homes.

“Our client was specific on her requirements, so as to suit her personal style and the quality of the finish that she was looking for.”

One of South East Victoria’s most awarded boutique home builders, Roseleigh Homes is renowned for building quality homes with distinctive style and house design. 

Brad said the company appreciates the “power of truly great home design in every home we build”. 

Bringing decades of proven drafting and home design experience to each project, the company has a strong focus on collaborating with clients every step of the way and ensuring their vision for their home is realised.

Roseleigh Homes has a skilled in-house drafting team that can create a custom design based on a client’s initial ideas and concepts to combine functionality, creativity, sustainability and liveability to bring to life a truly unique home. 

They also have an extensive range of plans available to build from, which can be customised to suit land size, orientation and specific finishes as required.

Well deserved praise for DAS

TOP TEAM: (L) DAS Constructions’ Dale Sartori is congratulated by Monash MP Russell Broadbent with the construction team (back left) Matt Crooks, Alex Sartori, director Melissa Sellings, Bevan West, Aaron Atwell and Darren Bainbridge, at the multimillion dollar Newhaven College gymnasium.

IT’S a massive feat in itself to tackle a multimillion dollar construction. 

Yet Wonthaggi DAS Constructions has done just this and collected an accolade in the process.  

Recently owner Dale Sartori and wife Melissa Sellings picked up a special commendation at the Master Builders South Gippsland Regional Awards.

The award celebrated excellence in construction of a commercial building over $6 million in value.

The honour was for DAS Constructions’ work in Newhaven College’s new state of the art $7 million gymnasium.

“It was really special to be recognised for our hard work that we have put in,” Mrs Sellings said.

The impressive gym was completed in January this year after 12 months of construction, and is one of many new school buildings at the campus completed by the Wonthaggi company.

College principal Gea Lovell said she couldn’t be happier with the design, layout, finishes and building work that has gone into this iconic gymnasium.

“I think of all the buildings Dale’s firm has built at the college, it is the new gymnasium he is most proud of and I think this is his best too,” Mrs Lovell said.

The award, however, is not DAS Constructions’ first.

Last year, the company claimed an award for excellence in construction and ‘Regional Builder of the Year’ for the learning centre and specialist facility at Newhaven College.

“We have a fabulous working relationship with the college and in particular principal Gea Lovell, business manager Stuart Robinson and the board of directors,” Mrs Sellings said.

Having over 25 years experience operating from a dedicated business premises in Wonthaggi, Dale and DAS team are dedicated to creating extraordinary commercial and domestic construction across the South Gippsland area.

Intricate design plus craftsmanship adds up to top award

TOP BUILDERS: The awards keep coming for the Vuillermin team with carpenter, Jackson Harry, named Victorian Apprentice of the Year.

THE high quality craftsmanship of local tradesman working under builder Steve Vuillermin has shone through in this year’s Master Builders Awards.

Steve’s intricate build of a luxury Inverloch home has won him his second residential builder of the year title for South East Victoria.

He is now off to the Victorian finals which will be held in Melbourne in a few months time.

The prestigious award follows on from his carpentry apprentice, Jackson Harry, been named the Victorian apprentice of the year.

Jackson goes through to the Australian Masters Builders Awards which will be held in Uluru in November and now Steve has the chance to join him as another state representative.

The Inverloch project took more than 18 months to complete as the local team delivered the dream inspired by the innovative and unique plans drawn by Melbourne architect, Michael Ellis.

“When I handed the owners the keys to their new house I did so with a great deal of pride,” Steve said.

“It was a challenge to build, but we were wrapped with the finished home and I’d love to be building a special residence like this each year.

“I drew on the best local expertise and the work of Nick Shaw, John O’Sullivan, Steve Johnston and Jason Pell to name just a few was first class.

“Their efforts were carried on by stonemason Sam Twite and flooring experts the Hams Brothers.”

In winning the award the judges commented that the detail and execution of the project was exemplary.

“Five different materials cover the external walls with each requiring a different specialist trade.

“The interior features parquetry flooring throughout the main living areas and marble paneling on the bathroom walls, and a four-piece, book-ended panel of marble located underneath the suspended fireplace.

“The construction of this home draws attention to the varied materials that come together.”

The spectacular home can now lay claim to be one of the best ever built in South East Gippsland.
