Steve has been working at WA Country Builders as a Site Supervisor since early 2007. In 2008 Steve completed his Diploma of Builder’s Registration at Tafe and in early 2012 achieved his Builders Registration. Most of Steve’s previous experience was in Cabinet Making and some Secondary Fix Carpentry. He enjoys building WA Country Builders home’s as it isn’t your ordinary style of home, and that there are many challenges with the homes we build which makes it rewarding once the client’s home is completed.
Steve lives in Wandering and builds our homes in the souther suburbs and surrounds. He started out in the industry as a bricklayer and then supervisor, but has proved over many years he can turn his hand to anything which has given him a very broad range of experience – including a stint as a marron farmer! He has supervised for WA Country Builders for over a decade and now balances his time between supervising our houses, time with children and grandchildren, and being part of the coaching team at the Boddington Eagles Football Club. Originally from Geelong, he is still a Geelong Football Club Supporter – but we forgive him.
