A residential care facility has taken out the 2022 Master Builders-Bankwest Building Excellence Awards for displaying an outstanding commitment to quality workmanship and innovation in Western Australia’s southwest.

Easybuild WA took the award for the 2022 Best Country Home South West. The spacious home on Australind Road, Leschenault, was created to maximise living and entertainment on a private bush block located near the picturesque Leschenault Peninsula Conservation Park.
The home represents a modern way of living combinedvwith the natural bush surrounds. Highlights include Donnybrook stone feature fireplace, polished salt and pepper concrete floors, trend plank spotted gum feature cladding, custom concrete benchtop and basins, and 12-metre pool with exposed aggregate.
Judge Sam Karamfiles was impressed by the high calibre of entries in a uniquely difficult year.
“South West builders take great pride in producing quality, and seeing the entries this year made that clear.
“The results showcased the ability to bring the best out from all their subcontractors and suppliers and produce the workmanship everyone is proud of,” Mr Karamfiles said.
The awards were held on August 20 in Bunbury at Quality Hotel Lighthouse.
