About Us Personally:

Peter McCabe is a TAFE lecturer and qualified carpenter and builder (NSW builders licence # 133677C; QLD builders licence # 1148383) who holds over 14 years of experience in the building industry. Peter’s most recent career highlight has been volunteering his past 4 summers (totalling well over 12 months of his own time) in restoring Mawson’s Hut in the Antarctic. Peter’s primary role was that of field leader and expedition carpenter.

Throughout this project his primary responsibilities were to provide daily reports and on site team management and act as media liaison as well as designing and constructing a remote field hut for the site within a strict time frame that would serve as a living quarters for future parties at the windiest valley on earth. This project also involved his expertise for the external and internal construction of new and existing buildings using various design techniques customised to withhold extreme temperatures.

His qualifications include:
  • Cert IV in Training & Assessment
  • Trade Certificate in Carpentry/Joinery
  • Certificate 4 in Residential Building Construction (with distinction)

  • Certificate 1 & 2 in Carpentry/Joinery Pre-Apprenticeship (Award of Excellence)
Also since early 2009, Peter has been lecturing a course in General Construction (Trade Entry) at TAFE. This course allows people seeking entry into the general construction industry, primarily in the carpentry and bricklaying trades.

You can always catch Peter’s monthly talkback radio show on 2UE which talks about DIY jobs around the house. He provides handy and useful DIY tips that can make a difference to any project or you can talk to him direct, by going to our contact us page and finding his details.
