WHO IS THE HAPPY CHIPPY?

My name is Brent McMillan. I am a New Zealander who has been residing in Australia for the past 20+ years. I have been in the trade since before I left school, starting by sweeping floors in Joinery factories through to completing my Joinery apprenticeship before travelling overseas. When I eventually settled in Australia, I went on to earn my Carpentry and then my Builders Licence.

My experience covers (but is not limited to):

Small and large renovations. New Builds. Wooden Joinery. Cabinetmaking. Shop fitting. Timber machining. Site Supervision. Maintenance. Hard landscaping. Termite repairs. Consultation. Commercial Installations. Commercial Maintenance. Grounds maintenance. Housing Commission Maintenance. 2nd Fixing. Disability modifications. Furniture design and construction.

I am based in Redcliffe, and I decided to work for myself for a number of reasons - some of which are: family/work balance - A chance to use all of my skills - Variation of work - To help people receive an honest well completed job - because I believe that people are not always treated fairly with regards to their wishes/requirements. I believe that with the combination of my skill set, honesty, people skills and fair pricing, I can make a difference for the people who engage me to complete their works.

In my non-work life, I'm fortunate to be happily partnered with two beautiful sons and an extended family who keep me very busy! I enjoy a number of different pastimes from family time to building radio control cars, but my main focus outside of work is my family life. Time spent with meaning with family.
As for the name? Simple. I have worked with too many grumpy trades people! Life is short, be in it!
