My Story

Hi, I’m James and this is my beautiful daughter, Alana.

Thanks for stopping by to learn about me and Our Build Home Improvement services.

About Me

I’m 37 and a builder. I love making a living helping and consulting with people, like you, to assist with your dream projects.

You can catch me any day of the week hanging pictures, building decks, renovating bathrooms, supervising projects or assisting in design and aprovals, it does not matter as I love it all and I love to get my hands dirty.

I have a beautiful wife, Alison (who you can meet by clicking About me > My family). We live in the coffee drinking capital of Sydney’s Inner West, Annandale. My two passions are my family and building, so that is probably why our place is always being renovated.

My story

I grew up on a farm outside Wagga Wagga in country NSW, which is where I started my building career at the age of 16.

After finishing my four year carpentry and joinery apprenticeship, I made the move to Sydney. Spending another three years as a subcontract carpenter, I also studied to get my builders licence so I could have my own building business.

As well as obtaining my builders licence, I have also completed various courses and study in Project Management, Estimating, Australian Standards, Dispute Resolutions, Contracts Administration and Time Management to name a few.

For 15 years I was a partner in a multi award winning building company. We specialised in design, renovations, extensions and new buildings. Recently, we decided to focus on our own endeavours and that is where you find yourself now, Our Build Pty Ltd. I wanted to focus my energies on offering you all that I have learned over the past 21 years in the industry.

Running the Our Build home improvements and consultancy business allows me to focus helping you get exactly what you are after. It also affords me the time to work on my own renovation projects, as well as helping other builders and owner builders with their journeys, plus spending time with my precious family.

If Our Build can be of assistance to you with your project please give us a call.

Best Wishes

James Mason.
