About Us

“There’s no better feeling than taking a client’s ideas on a piece of paper, then finally watching their face light up at handover.”

Over the decades, we at Humble Abode Building Group have seen how ‘small’ building faults eventually turn into huge problems for the homeowner, where sometimes it’s too late for them to turn back. We want this cycle to end, and for clients in the market who are looking for a private
builder to put their dreams into action.

IMAGINATION, FUNCTIONALITY and EASE. These elements fall hand in hand with the process of your build and us as builders are responsible to highlight them every step of the way. Taking the stress out of decision-making, instead making the journey an enjoyable one! We invite you to make
yourself at home with the team at Humble Abode.

While Humble Abode’s presence was first established in 2018, its backbone has been built from over 30 years of industry experience and partnered workmanship. Directors Jarrod Gaget and Dan Cattolico noticed issues in their own homes after choosing a bigger builder. This was the perfect motivation to get Humble Abode up and running, achieving the outcome that the homebuyer truly deserves. Jarrod and Dan are ready to take the Humble Abode Building Group to a professional home builder standard, for home buyers and renovators alike. Caring for each home as if it’s their own, from the first plans to hand over.

After accomplishing state-wide projects from a professional carpenter’s perspective, the developed Pakenham (VIC) based company is now accompanied with important home building techniques, support from experienced tradesmen and valued major developer relationships.

Taking the stress out of decision-making, instead, making the journey an enjoyable one!

We invite you to make yourself at home with the team at Humble Abode.

Jarrod Gaget – Director of Humble Abode : Growing up, Jarrod was always eager to create something from scratch/ to keep his hands busy. In 2005, he would start his apprenticeship in carpentry with the guidance of an expert mentor, who motivated him to launch a carpentry business in 2008. A few years in the trade, Jarrod would team up with Dan Cattolico (Director of Humble Abode) and together expanded their carpentry endeavours with the opening of ‘Trussed Carpentry’ in 2014. They completed jobs for multiple home builders with their dedicated team on board, from small renovations to large developments.

Dan Cattolico- Director of Humble Abode : Dan has always liked planning and designing stages when it comes to construction. He started an apprenticeship in 2008 where he then enjoyed his time on the tools as a carpenter, but always knew there was more growth in the development industry. After owning his own business for a few years, he launched the partnered company ‘Trussed Carpentry’ in 2014 with Jarrod (Director of Humble Abode).

The Director’s vision: Over the years they both noticed issues on the build sites they worked on.

Even in their own homes after choosing a bigger builder. This was the perfect motivation to get Humble Abode up and running, in hopes of achieving the outcome that the homebuyer truly deserves.

Jarrod and Dan are ready to take the Humble Abode Building Group to a professional home builder standard, for home buyers and renovators alike. Caring for each home as if it’s their own from the first plans to hand over.
