What has been your favourite build to complete and why?
I guess my favourite project would have been an architect designed home on a 4000 square metre block in Beeliar. It had a great design and featured diamond cut limestone blocks on its exterior and also on some selected internal walls as well. The owner was over the moon with how the project turned out, so it was extremely satisfying for me as the builder to be delivering a home that exceeded the owners expectations in every way.

What’s something in the next year you would like to do/achieve as a business?
I’d like to be building more high-end, exclusive designed, solar-passive homes.

Funniest moment on the job?
The day I saw an apprentice painter kick a tin of paint off the scaffold plank and see it end up all over his boss who was standing below. Absolute gold!

What’s the best advice you have ever heard? Never give up and always look for the positive side of things.

What James Hardies products do you love at JBS? I love the Linea weatherboards they look fantastic.

Favourite quote/saying on the job? Measure twice, cut once

What do you like most about JBS? I love the fact that when you walk in the place, people know your name and are generally very knowledgeable about the products they are selling. If they are not sure, they go out of their way to find out. It’s a place I can go to and be confident I’ll always get what I need, and that’s rare these days.
