Cairns builders and designers recognised at residential building Awards

Media release
Cairns builder Ash Moseley Homes was awarded the coveted HIA Cairns Home of the Year for an impressive hillside luxury home in Mooroobool at the 2022 HIA-Pioneer North Queensland Cairns Housing and Kitchen & Bathroom Awards.

The stunning four-bedroom family home takes full advantage of its position, with generous amounts of glass capturing panoramic city views and glimpses of lush rainforest. Separate levels create an undulating and stepped feel across the residence, while a skillion roofline adds volume and space.


HIA Cairns Home of the Year was one of six awards collected by Ash Moseley Homes including Custom Built Home, Custom Built Home over $900,000, Townhouse / Villa Development, Townhouse / Villa of the Year, and Unique and Difficult Sites.


“In recent times the industry had challenges ranging from skilled labour availability, material shortages and the ever-rising costs of construction. HIA Awards highlight the resilience, skill and professionalism of our members,” commented Shane Moon, Housing Industry Association (HIA) Cairns Branch Manager.


“The projects in this year’s Awards were of an extremely high calibre and the closest judging we have seen for a long time. The projects are nothing short of outstanding and it is a real credit to the finalists and winners,” Mr Moon said.


CCW Cabinet Works had a night to remember, taking out an impressive eight awards in the Kitchen and Bathroom categories which were Kitchen of the Year, Bathroom of the Year, Renovated Bathroom, Renovated Kitchen up to $35,000, Renovated Kitchen over $35,001, New Kitchen over $40,001, Kitchen Design and Interior Cabinetry.


Kitchen of the Year and Bathroom of the Year featured in a beautifully renovated Palm Cove apartment. The brief was to minimise the kitchen’s appearance with clean lines and no handles to interrupt the flow, while providing ample storage. The bathroom featured a walk-in shower, wall hung double vanity and 50mm stone wraps to give a luxurious feel.


“The HIA Awards program is seen as a demonstration of the local building industry’s commitment to their clients and the home buying public by delivering projects with the highest standard of workmanship,” stated Mr Moon.


“The awards recognise building and design excellence, showcasing innovation, technology and modern trends in new homes, kitchens and bathrooms,” he concluded.


Major winners progress to the HIA-CSR North Queensland Housing and Kitchen & Bathroom Awards in Townsville on 4 November to see who is crowned North Queensland’s best.
