Border and North East builders will be well represented at Victorian awards in November after claiming three-quarters of the honours at regional level.
The area won 13 of the 17 categories at the Housing Industry Association Northern Victoria Regional Housing Awards held in Wangaratta.
Flair Cabinets took out five trophies, with a project in Woolshed Drive, Thurgoona, winning kitchen of the year, bathroom of the year, new kitchen over $50,001 and new bathroom up to $30,000.
A kitchen for a home in Adams Lane, Staghorn Flat, was also named best renovation up to $30,000.
Flair Cabinets general manager Ted Lawrence said features of the Thurgoona project included full extension soft close drawers, induction and gas cook tops and engineered stone bench tops.
The renovation, designed by Emily Bramich, turned a dark, older kitchen “into something magnificent”.
