Carport Ashmore

Carport Ashmore

With all the rain that has been around lately, it was a great idea & investment to install a carport for Phil at Ashmore. There was no undercover area at the front of his house, which made it pretty difficult to stay dry. He called Elliott Homes and we were more than happy to install a carport for him on the side of his house. The carport has a black colourbond roof and  panels of clear polycarbonate sheeting to allow visibility.

Renovation Capalaba

Renovation Capalaba

This past week we have been converting a downstairs brick room into a new room. The renovation capalaba had a room downstairs that was just brick, and cement. We have completely transformed the room by covering the brick with gyprock, so that it blends into the rest of the house. A new solid door was added, with architraves around all the windows to give it that homely feel. It is yet to be tiled & painted, however it was a huge transformation.

What to Ask Before Hiring a Carpenter

Most people will find it hard to find a carpenter these days and if you will think of it, a carpenter may be having difficulties finding some jobs today since only a few people prefer wooden structures, furniture, etc. Out of desperation to find a good carpenter, do not rush into hiring the first one you will find. Ask for quotes and his carpentry experience. Below are some questions that you should ask when looking for a carpenter to hire.


The most important questions to ask before hiring a carpenter are about his experience. How long has he been offering carpentry services? In general, the carpenters who have more years of experience are more skilled and know more techniques than others. However, there are some exceptions and those who have only a few years of experience should be given a chance too.

In addition, you should ask the carpenter about projects that are similar to yours. It is better if the carpenter has done similar projects within the year. There is a higher chance that he knows the latest materials, newest techniques, etc.

Sketch & Portfolio

It is also important that you ask for a portfolio. Whether you are looking for carpenters and whatever it is that you need the carpenter to make, you should always ask for a portfolio. It should have plenty of photos of his previous projects. Look closely and examine each picture.

In addition, you can tell the carpenter what you want and ask him to make a sketch. It is a good way to know whether or not he understood what you want.


If you are satisfied with the carpenter’s experience, communication skills, portfolio and sketch, you can ask how much he or she would charge you. In fact, asking for a quotation could happen even before asking for his experience. You can even request him to provide a detailed quote so that you know how much is for the materials and how much is for the labour.

Most of the time, the use of subcontractors can affect the cost. When hiring carpenters in your area, it is best to ask whether or not the carpenter will rely on subcontractors. If they will, which ones they will work with. It is also best if you could meet these subcontractors.

You should be very picky when hiring a carpenter. Ask him about his experience, sample works, a sketch of your project, and the costs.
