Baby's arrival sees design take shape CONTINUED Page 5 Six awards in the Registered Mas- ter Builders' Association regional awards have been won by Upper Hutt properties. They were announced at the Wellington-Wairarapa house of the year and commercial project awards on August 5. Only two of the winning buil- ders are based in Upper Hutt -- Lindsay Residential who won gold, and H M Build who won bronze and an energy-efficiency award. Eddie and Frances Thompson have the unexpected arrival of their son, Hunter, now aged two, to thank for their double-award winning home overlooking Maymorn and designed by Mrs Thompson, an interior and spatial designer. Spatial design seeks best use of shapes and spaces. Their house was built by H M Build and won two awards, one for energy efficiency. After renting at the other end of Mangaroa, the Thompsons loved the valley so much they bought 10 acres of former sheep farm from Malcolm Gillies and moved a 72-square-metre new relocatable home there from Kapiti while they planned their dream home. They had given up hope of a family when Mrs Thompson became pregnant in her mid-40s. Out came the drawings for the extension and construction began about the time Hunter was born. The original relocatable home is now the guest wing. The 297-square-metre extension on one level is timber-framed, and clad with Linear Weatherboard and Zincalume. The chimney and pillars at the front gate and main door are built from riverstones. Mrs Thompson is Scottish and met her husband, who is from the Wairarapa, in Scotland. Their property, in Rural View Way, is accessed from Mount Marua.
