The Heustis family have been settled on Bribie for a little over a decade but they haven’t always lived and worked in this state or indeed Australia. Mark, Robbie, and Jacinta spent five years in the United States while Mark was driving big rigs interstate for a US freight company. “We had the opportunity to go to the US and drive for a big transport company. Jacinta was just a baby at the time but it was a great way for us as a family to see the country and the money was pretty good which was a bonus,” said Mark.

The family then returned to Australia so Jacinta could attend school here. Nowadays, the couple is focussed on growing their family business and making it work by combining each individual family members’ talents to tackle the jobs that come their way. “Jacinta and her boyfriend Mark are a whizz at assembling flat pack furniture and cupboards,” said Robbie. “She and Mark can get the job done in half the time we could do it,” she jokes. Mark says that his father was a gifted fine woodworker producing beautiful violins. He said that he learned a lot from his father in precision woodworking.
“The time spent helping my father and learning those skills has certainly benefited me in tackling the types of jobs we get here on Bribie,” said Mark. But Mark reserves his highest praise for his wife Robbie who he says produces the best tiling work he has ever seen. “In one of our renovation jobs Robbie tiled a complete bathroom and when the builder arrived he absolutely heaped praise on the quality of her workmanship,” he said.
