Owner Builder Forum
May 07, 2016 2:37 pm
I'm planning an owner build in Mackay QLD.
Can anyone recommend building supplies companies in Mackay that are reliable and sensibly priced?
Ideally I'd like to establish an account with these suppliers and then organise all materials through them. That will save me time and stress and hopefully benefit the supplier since I won't be constantly shopping around for prices.
I'm guessing there may be three key suppliers:
(1) structural timber (for timber wall and roof framing)
(2) steel (for the raised subfloor system since the house will be on a steep slope)
(3) general hardware
