Is this the Outdoor Lifestyle Winner of 2019?

A brand new outdoor area and a chance to win a Master Build award in 2019! Hamish Kincaid reveals his new outdoor area, featuring the Galaxy 6 Burner Built-In BBQ and the Galaxy Professional Rangehood and shows us why he might just win a Master Build award in 2019.

  • The History

    When Hamish and Gail Kincaid purchased a former Royal N.Z. Artillery & Engineers barracks in 2007, they knew the grand old lady would need care and attention to get the large spaces just right.

    As the family grew, Hamish and Gail wanted to provide an area of entertainment and lifestyle for everyone to enjoy. A welcoming area that could cater for many and that had little to no maintenance.

    They also wished to utilise the idle land surrounding the old barracks, taking into consideration Wellington's changeable weather conditions. It made sense to create a forever-holiday vibe on the giant space they had to work with.

    They started with a 10.5m, self-cleaning, heated pool. The area surrounding it was tiled and astroturfed (no mowing lawns here) and evergreens were planted to create a totally private oasis. Giant, 9-metre sliding doors, that recessed back, meant that the whole BBQ/Entertainment /Dining area could transform from indoor to outdoor (no need to worry about the weather any more)! A large recessed spa pool inside the pocket doors ensures you finish your swim in comfort and style.

  • The Outdoor Entertaining Area

    The indoor/outdoor kitchen is fully equipped with a hidden dishwasher and fridge and of course the giant Gasmate Galaxy 6 Burner BBQ! The Gasmate Galaxy is cleverly recessed into the kitchen, to create that ever-important social hub.

    The mirrored splash back means the cook can still see all the action, whilst not missing out while preparing the meal!

    "It was important to have a large BBQ to match the size of the area and to be able to cater for large numbers, the Gasmate galaxy was the perfect fit!" says Hamish, adding "with the warming rack and the size of the BBQ, there is no need to have to rush off to another oven to keep food warm, or make space."

    The guests (and cook) never have to leave the fun. Service commences straight from the BBQ to the large serving bench making entertaining easy. Food stays warm by simply closing the lid - an important feature when the little ones don't want to get out of the pool in time for dinner! This means a progressive dinner is no longer a hassle - just put the lid down and there's an instant warming oven right there!

    Hamish says "The area is a huge space with big fun to be had, we required a big boy BBQ that could handle the lot, and we thankfully found it in the form of the Gasmate Galaxy!"
