Our Team

John Bartrum – Owner

Kurrajong Steel Homes founding director John Bartrum began his building career in the 1970’s, while he began using mostly timber in Queensland’s termite prone areas, it quickly became apparent to him the benefits of a steel frame far out weighted a timber one in terms of strength and durability. John personally manages the footings, substructure and or slabs, ensuring a solid foundation and base for the longevity of every new Kurrajong home.

John also has considerable experience in swimming pool installation, which he likes to do for clients so that both pool and home can be designed and built in harmony with each other to enhance your lifestyle experience

We work as a team at Kurrajong – like family – and we are immensely proud of all of the staff whose skills and enthusiasm for their product ensures a pleasant and happy client-business relationship from the moment you walk through the door.

Craig Lane - Site Supervisor

Craig joined Kurrajong Steel Homes 10 years ago and says he loves steel for its ease of use and straight functional finish.
Craig is an integral part of the site team, co-ordinating the delivery of all materials, and sub-contractors work schedules as well as looking after quality control and overseeing day-to-day on site operations.
From time to time he can also be seen getting his hands dirty – steel welding when necessary.
His long history with the company ensures that the final build is to the quality and finish that Kurrajong Steel Homes are renowned for.
