Steve Gibson started his career in carpentry at the age of 16, completing an apprenticeship in carpentry and joinery. In over 35 years Steve has gone from carpenters apprentice to supervisor, project manager, site manager and builder. He has subcontracted to various builders in the Sydney metropolitan area working on an array of custom-designed homes and working on the Northern Beaches for the past 30 years.
Steve has proven himself as an exceptional builder with an eye for detail. The attention Steve puts into every project is second to none and shows in each of the nearly fifty new home builds he has managed since starting Peninsula Homes in 2009.
Steve’s a family man, happily married to his lovely wife Marg and has 3 adult sons. They all love the great outdoors and enjoy camping, water skiing and a spot of fishing.
Coming from two generations of builders in his family, Paul has worked in the residential building industry for over 25 years. Completing formal building qualifications in 1999, Paul has since compiled a wealth of experience building here on the Northern Beaches. From a practical and hands-on trade background, he has developed an interest and focus on the practical application of green living principles. This environmental focus touches most areas of Peninsula Homes’ work from the initial design, through the use of appropriate materials (many of which are recycled) all the way to helping homeowners on how to best use the well-designed features of their new home.
Paul’s genuine love of building always shows through and together with his calm and considered approach to his work means that issues are solved without fuss, well before they develop into a problem.
A dedicated family man to two teenage daughters, Paul is also passionate about health and fitness. He has completed a number of marathons, including seven ultra-marathons, with plenty more in the pipeline.
It’s quite simple. When we say that we’ll do something, we mean it and we see it through. This sounds so easy that it should just be a given, right? But in reality this type of commitment is difficult to practice, especially when it comes to being Sydney builders.
From a 25 year career in sales and administration management within the cosmetics industry, Nicole would never have dreamed that she would work in the building business. But after 12 years with Peninsula Homes, she is very much at home with all the building processes and technical jargon.
A super-organised person by nature, Nicole not only manages the office but also provides amazing creative input into our social media and website. Often the first person that people speak to when they call our office, Nicole plays a huge role in the success of each home.
As Northern Beaches builders, we’ve realised that every homeowner has individual expectations and requirements. They each have areas of their homes that carry significant importance. After all, we are all individuals.
