Owner & Operator
Owner & Operator
Chris is a ticketed carpenter with nearly two decades of high-end residential building experience and a strong background in structural work, architectural concrete and millwork. He found his passion early, managing million-dollar builds and large crews before he hit 30.
Born and raised on Vancouver Island, Chris is knowledgeable in marine ecosystems and how to be mindful around these sensitive environments. He is known to bring this essential consideration to his waterfront builds. His experience working with municipal governments makes him a valuable asset leading development projects.
Chris lives an inspired life travelling the world with his wife, and exploring B.C. through camping, fishing and snowboarding.
Originally from New Zealand, Ryan has called Victoria home for over 15 years. This talented Carpenter also brings to our Team his extensive roofing experience, having run a successful business himself. You will always find Ryan working right along with the team, mentoring the younger guys or leading the day’s work. And if he’s not on site, this Kiwi is off searching for the best surfing spots on Vancouver Island.
James’ high-energy is expected from being the youngest on the crew, but his enthusiasm and quick wit are what we value most. This Comox-born Apprentice Carpenter joins us on the recommendation of a family member, and has proven his mettle with his hard work and commitment to the team. We’re proud we able to share our knowledge and experience with newcomers to the trade, and help James get his carpentry ticket.
