Pichelmann News

What a truly humbling and privileged experience we have had working with the volunteer BlazeAid organisation at Cobargo last weekend.

We arrived not really knowing what to expect, just willing to help. What we experienced was incredible ! To be given the opportunity to help and interact with families that have lost and suffered so much and yet were so appreciative and warm but still very fragile was something that is really hard to describe.

BlazeAid - You guys are fantastic! You are all volunteers working incredible hours to help us volunteer our time to the farmers! You are the Australian spirit on steroids.

I'd personally like to thank our crew - My wife Meike, Eugene, Tom, Steve and his beautiful family, my daughter Lilly, Kien, Jack, Peter, Tim, Jeremy, Justin, Ryley, Brian, Kyle, Mike and Megan.

Also like to thank Erick and his crazy Brazilian mates who went to the Adelong BlazeAid site to help there as well!

We are all looking forward to going to Cobargo again in early April and swelling our numbers to more than 40!.

Another award for Pichelmann Custom Building! This week we won the HIA National Award for Special Purpose Housing.

We are very proud of this award - this luxury home was built for a client with a degenerative condition. The home was completely customised to the client's brief whilst allowing flexibility for the future. Styled with Japanese themes and achieving an 8.7 star energy efficiency rating, the home features an exercise pool in one wing and the adaptability for the other wing to operate independently as a residence for a live-in carer.

We were recently featured on Channel Nine’s Open Homes Australia showcasing one of our projects at Wamboin. We’re very proud of this one and if you missed us on the small screen, you can watch the segment here.
