Meet the Team: James
What’s your favorite aspect of carpentry?
I like being able to make and create things out of a natural product that can be used and kept for many years.
What first got you interested in pursuing a career in Carpentry?
My Dad is a very successful carpenter. He had a good career as a site foreman and then went on to be self-employed starting his own business. He has built his own house in Kent, England. This inspired me to be a carpenter.
To date what has been your favorite project with Chuditch and why?
I enjoyed working on the Pine Street houses in Pemberton. It was nice to get away for a bit and off the big commercial jobs. The job was in a nice quiet area and the work was basic second fix carpentry working with good materials and was enjoyable to do.
What is your preferred Carpentry scope of works to partake in?
Why do you enjoy working for Chuditch?
You get treated fairly, as a professional and get to work with a great team.
What skills have you learnt since working with Chuditch?
I have learnt how to communicate professionally with other trades and site management. I have also learnt how to supervise a big team to make sure the job is done correctly.
If you could create anything with timber what would it be?
If I had the money I would create my own tree house mansion in the jungle.
How long have you been a Carpenter now?
I have been a qualified carpenter for 11 years.
