Heading up the design and project management team is company owner Garrett Hebden. Garrett is a registered builder with more than 30 years of home, kitchen, and bathroom renovation experience.
Garrett’s career in the building industry continues a family tradition of exemplary home building and renovating. Both his father and grandfather ran highly regarded and successful businesses, in Essendon and the surrounding suburbs.
After completing a five-year apprenticeship working with a well-established Master Builder in Essendon (responsible for many of the landmark homes built in the area built in the 50’s and 60’s), Garrett’s father purchased a Cabinetmaking Business. Utilising his building skills and his own father’s business knowledge, Garrett’s father was able to expand the business into building and renovations, specializing in kitchen and bathrooms.
