We are thrilled to announce that Against the Grain Building & Renovating has been named a finalist for this year's Timber Design Awards for Interior Fitout - Residential, for the exceptional craftsmanship that went into the interior of their new build project - Benison - completed earlier this year.   This is another nod to Against the Grain Windows & Doors and the custom made doors and benchtops we built for the project.


We are pleased to advise that the Macquarie University Innovation Hub took out several awards at the Gala Dinner/Award Presentation held on 25 October in Melbourne.  Awards included direct nods to the windows, doors and facade panels built by Against the Grain Windows & Doors.  Lipman Contractors won a further three awards for this unique build.
