Country 2 City Metal Roofing won the ‘People’s Choice Award’ at the Building Excellence Awards – Master Builders ACT in June and ‘Excellence in Metal Roofing’ from the Metal Roofing and Cladding Association in September for its work on the Fairley Early Childhood Centre in the village.

Business owners and husband and wife Chris and Cindy Murphy have lived in Murrumbateman for four years.

“We just love the community here,” Mrs Murphy said.

It wasn’t long ago that Mr Murphy decided to take a leap of faith and run his own business after working for his father for 16 years. Today, the company services the Yass Valley and Canberra and has a staff of five.

“Chris shows a lot of attention to detail and prides himself on quality,” Mrs Murphy said.

The build included 1600 square metres of metal roofing and 600sqm of wall cladding. The job was completed by Mr Murphy and co-worker Dylan Patten within a month or so, back in 2017.

“This was our first year entering the awards and we weren’t expecting to win,” Mrs Murphy said.
