VBUILD'S HOME FIT FOR A FAIRYTALE

VBUILD'S HOME FIT FOR A FAIRYTALE

A WEDDING, a mountain and a 'home among the gumtrees' this $4 million project by V-Build has it all.

Tucked away in the depths of Mount Tamborine, the home features a unique floating box staircase, curving cross fall driveway and eight months' worth of stonemasonry.

There was no negotiating the deadline for this awe-inspiring project, as a marriage ceremony for the client's daughter at the finished home was on the horizon.

Keith Vandyke, director of V-Build, says the ease of working in collaboration with designer Mark Granger was refreshing.

"On a house like that, I'm steering a ship," says Keith.

"The crew is worth a mansion and every subcontractor on that job deserves a pat on the back. Logistically Tamborine is a bit of a challenge because everything has to get up the hill."

For creating this mountaintop masterpiece, Keith and his team took out the Individual Home $2 million - $4 million award at the Master Builders Gold Coast Housing & Construction Awards 2016.
