The Aussie chippie converts to steel

McDonald Jones Homes has partnered with well-known Aussie builder and TV personality Scott Cam.

Scott Cam talks about Supaloc Steel Frames

In this behind-the-scenes interview, Cam talks about his new love for Supaloc steel frames.

Scott Cam came on board with McDonald Jones Homes this year after he decided they were a genuine, quality and reputable family-owned business.

He spoke to McDonald Jones Homes about his history with framing. “As a carpenter, traditionally we’ve always worked with timber. Timber is very heavy. It’s nice to work with but it’s very hard to work with at the same time. ”

Cam then goes on to describe his new thoughts on Supaloc steel frames: “It’s lightweight. It’s easy to work with. The big thing is it’s termite proof. That’s what I like too. Certainly in regions that there are a lot of termites. It’s straight and it stays straight. Whereas timber won’t do that. It moves around a fair bit. Now I’m very impressed. In fact, I’m building a house up at Mudgee at the moment for myself in the bush, and I’ve been swayed- I’m going to steel!”

Great to hear Scott! We look forward to reading about the build on his blog, which you can read here.
