We are proud to announce we are award winners!
The beginning of a new year can often be sluggish and quiet. However, for us we were looking forward to the Greater Lincolnshire Construction and Property Awards.
We were finalists for two categories, amongst some great companies and projects, so were proud to be part of the event.
We had a table of people who represented each part of the process to join us. Imagine our shock when they announced we had won the Residential Properties of the Year and a Highly Commended for Sustainable Property.
I think for Martin and myself the biggest surprise is that we are not builders, so to be in the finals, was a huge pat on the back, never mind win one.
As many of you know it has been a long journey and sticking to our vision has often been challenging. Watching the houses develop and having an owner now enjoying the first one is so rewarding. To have the winning acknowledgment from the Lincolnshire Chamber judging panel really means a lot to us.
It is also a great pat on the back for all involved, as it really has been a team effort from a lot of people.
We now have another house nearly complete, with two others well on the way for spring. The site itself looks great now, less like a building site, which I am sure will make a difference for viewings and potential buyers.
It was interesting to hear on the night of the awards, how challenging the last few years have been to anyone involved in the construction industry. If you have been following the blogs, you will be aware of the struggles we have had, both for supplies and trades. This still continues to be the case and we constantly have meetings on how to overcome this. There does not seem to be any let up with areas of products. Being held up coming into our ports with the boat being stuck in the Suez Canal and Brexit, or purely the knock on effects of COVID. Either way I hope that things will ease as we move forward into 2022.
Chiselwood remains busy with new projects coming on board weekly which is great. Fortunately we are managing to keep things flowing, even if we have to juggle fitting dates due to building projects struggling to meet dates. We are lining up dates for photography over the next few months. https://chiselwood.co.uk/project/period-home-remodelled-for-modern-living/
Martin is preparing to fly out to Sub-Zero Wolf headquarters in a few weeks. The closing date for the awards has passed and there are many entries to mark. However he is ploughing through them alongside the other judges in readiness for their meet up. He is impressed with the entries and I am sure it will be a difficult few days choosing the winners. https://www.subzero-wolf.com/trade-resources/kitchen-design-contest
As I look outside the window at the abundance of snowdrops it reminds me that spring is not far away. We know that this will bring people to our showrooms wanting inspiration for projects in their homes. We look forward to meeting them with less restrictions and an optimistic year ahead.
