Benalla businessman Mark Pryor has earned recognition for his cabinetry work in a Mansfield home in this month’s edition of Grand Designs Australia magazine.
Mr Pryor, of Rose City Kitchens and Joinery, completed cabinetry and furnishings such as bookshelves in the kitchen, laundry, walk-in robes and living areas in the home, and his kitchen cabinetry earned him front-page fame with the magazine.
The nine-page spread on the Mansfield home came after it was filmed for series three of the Grand Designs television show, which aired last year.
‘‘I am proud, it’s the front cover, it’s a fair achievement,’’ Mr Pryor said.
‘‘People might think my work’s not so bad now.’’
Mr Pryor said the team who worked on the Mansfield home included Damien King, Daryl Anderson, Michael Wilson and Shaun Harper, who were all part of the joinery fit-out.
The community response has been positive and supportive of the Benalla business.
‘‘A few people have rang and mentioned it, and they were all happy,’’ Mr Pryor said.
The Mansfield home was selected to be featured on the Grand Designs show for its unique indoor-outdoor design and the materials that were used.
