Thorn Homes were chosen by the South West regional judges as the winner of the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) 'Extensions and renovations under £100,000' prize in the South West 2012. This category is the most relevant to all homeowners, as we all spend up to this amount on our properties, in our lifetime. For more information about the awards please visit the FMB's website.
Master Builders Nominations must come from satisfied clients and builders are judged on their building technical ability together with their customer service.
As a FMB regional winner Thorn Homes was then considered by a national panel of judges. The FMB national winners of the 11th Master Builder of the Year Awards was announced by architect and TV presenter George Clarke.
Mr Trevor Thorn, owner and director of Thorn Homes said “I am very proud of the building achievements of our team and this builds on the success of our award in 2010 when we were the South West runners up.”
The Award winning project
The project comprised of two story and single story extensions with a basement games room below. Thorn Homes carried out full landscaping of the rear garden formed over multiple levels. Even creating a bmx track for the clients' children using the materials that were excavated to form the basement.
Thorn Homes worked closely with the client to meet their needs and requirements. The basement was a difficult task carried out through winter months, with limited access and space but as always, we rose to the building challenge. The client was so pleased with the outcome and so nominated Thorn Homes in the Federation of Master Builders Awards which we won first prize.
Mr & Mrs Dr Laker are still enjoying their build and remain to be one of our references.
