I recently found this forum while doing some research on an extension we are planning. Married with many kids who will likely still be living with us in 15 years!! (Hence the need to expand)
I must say this is a very informative site with a heap of friendly people who are willing to share their knowledge. Thanks all
Briefly my background
Spent around 10 years running a excavation business specialising in laying gas & water mains around Victoria.
About 15 years ago (must be getting old!) got out of this (lost interest) and went to work for a large Australian building company.
Spent 11 or so years working in the Window & Door division eventually running the National business - the largest window supplier to New Home Market in Australia
Decided to re balance my life (was travelling 10 days per month) and spend more time with the family.
2 years ago the opportunity arose to take over a distressed & poorly managed Window business with facilities in Vic, Qld & SA. Initially an enormous challenge cleaning up the mess but getting there now!
Look forward to sharing any knowledge i may have with you all and learning all i can from you
