Now in 2014-15 Steve's sons Leon and Colbain have built a few houses in Qld mostly to train Colbain up in his carpentry apprenticeship although most of their combined effort these days is operating a creative building design office and offering services to builders & tradies.
The hands on construction aspect of the family business has been wound back due to Leon's career change into a private venture, this will allow him more time to dedicate to his Australian mission work, Steve who is now over 60yrs old finds climbing around roof trusses all day is getting too hard.
