Tell us about your business and how it started?
We are a design and construction company based in Inverloch which is by the beach in Gippsland, Victoria. I started out working for myself in building design after I had my daughter back in 2008. It really snowballed from there, and I gradually got bigger as my daughter grew up and I could work more.
I then did a building course with a girlfriend who also worked in the industry, and together we both got registered and created a company building unit developments for clients. This was a great learning curve and it was aimed towards the mum and dad investors which worked great.
We got to a point where we had to go full time in the business or call it a day, and as we both had relocated hours from each other we called it a day, and now we do our own land developments together instead.
I relocated my design business to Inverloch and we have a great team designing new homes, extension and townhouse developments, and along with my plumber husband we build a small number of mid-high end homes each year.
