New Front Door Installation

One of our clients required a new front door as the existing one was just an internal hollow core door so a fit for purpose solid front door needed to be installed. She picked out the door and hardware and we prepped it in our workshop cutting it to size, 3 coats of oil based enamel paint and installed on site in an afternoon so there was minimal interruption to our client.

Pergola Construction

This just finished pergola construction has made a previously uninhabitable space habitable for our clients located on Cairns’ Northern Beaches. This is now a lovely covered and insulated outdoor area where our clients can relax in. We constructed the framework with termite resistant structural pine then painted to match the house. Same with the colourbond roof and guttering were chosen and installed to match the existing house. A seamless addition to a modern house.

Partition Wall Built for New Restaurant

This just completed which was the construction of a partition wall for an exciting new restaurant opening soon in Edge Hill. As this was for a restaurant we had to make sure that not only was it super sturdy as it’s destined to be a high traffic area but waterproof as well due to the alcove area intended to be the wash-up area. This was done with villaboard and waterproof base coat as well as silicone around the whole base of the wall. The wall itself it a normal stud wall which was then sheeted with gyprock, plastered and painted. The End!

Building of a New Fence and Gate

We got to put our carpentry skills to use again for this one. This client wanted a new fence and gate built so the ponds he had would be kept secure. A simple treated pine fence and gate was installed with a pool safe latch. Ponds are still easily accessible but safe behind a fence.

Washing Machine Delivery, Installation and Disposal of Old Machine

This out of town landlord needed a new washing machine she purchased, collected, delivered and installed in a unit she owns in Port Douglas. It was organised that we pick up the new machine from a local retailer and after speaking with the property manager we organised a time with the tenant for delivery and installation. We arrived onsite and removed the old machine and installed the new one and disposed of the old white good at the local recycling facility. Happy Landlord and happy tenant!

Tired Looking Deck Refinished and Brought Back To Life

This deck was in desperate need of some TLC as it was looking quite weathered. The deck was prepped and pressure cleaned to remove a lot of the mold and old finish that was flaking off in some parts. The merbau stained finish was then applied over 2 coats which brought the deck back to life making it look new and shiny again.
