The Founder – Sheldon Powe-Hobbs

G’day readers! I’m Sheldon Powe-Hobbs, the founder of Cairns Custom Bathrooms. It’s time we got to know each other a little better. Since this is our first blog post, I thought I’d share our story, my personal journey, and the passion that propels us towards perfecting bathrooms across North Queensland.

From the first time I put on a nail bag back in 2009 at 17, the construction industry has been my playground. As I refined my skills as a qualified carpenter and builder, I began to understand the unique creativity that goes into each square metre of a renovation project. This insight, coupled with an appreciation for attention to detail, is what drew me specifically towards bathroom renovations. I came to love the variety and the unique opportunity to transform a small, often overlooked space, into a unique, personalised oasis.

That’s how Cairns Custom Bathrooms was born. Our goal has always been to revolutionise the perception of the renovation industry, a task we’ve undertaken by showing genuine care for our clients and their homes. We are determined to debunk the stereotype of tardy tradies and unreliable service. Instead, we work relentlessly to put you, the client, at the centre of attention for an enjoyable renovating experience.

Our mission is simple: we work with people who have tired, run-down, out-of-date, or leaking bathrooms to create the best before & afters money can buy. Whether you’re in Edmonton, Trinity Beach, or nestled closer to the city, we’re here to breathe new life into your space. We create bathrooms inspired by the ones you’ve seen on TV, social media, magazines, Google, Pinterest – the works! Your vision and our craftsmanship is the perfect combo to make that happen.

Our unique selling proposition doesn’t just lie in the final product but the journey there. We understand that every client is unique, and so are their requirements. It’s not just about the tiles and fixtures; it’s about creating a space that mirrors your personality, and that’s something we take to heart. We know you’re not just looking for a renovation – you’re looking for a revitalization.

As a lover of the outdoors and art myself, I get the thrill of incorporating these elements into our designs. No two projects are the same, and that’s the beauty of what we do at Cairns Custom Bathrooms.

But beyond all this, what truly sets us apart is our commitment to challenging the status quo. This is more than a business to us; it’s about shifting the narrative of the construction industry to one of trust, reliability, and exceptional quality. We’re committed to keeping our promises and exceeding expectations. That’s why we turn up when we say we will, we do what we say we’re going to do, and we put our heart into it every step of the way.

So here’s to the beginning of an incredible journey. We hope this blog will serve as a valuable resource and a platform to share our passion for transforming ordinary bathrooms into extraordinary experiences.
