How do we know Jack?… When Paul and I 1st moved to Melbourne we lived in this super sweet pad in Mt Martha right next to the beach (this is where we 1st started to gut the bus). I was Studying Art Therapy and working at spotlight while paul was working from Seaford doing Plumbing. This is where he Met Jack. Jack was an apprentice and Paul worked with Jack allot. They did allot of homes in your classic “Sea of houses” suburbia and they all look the same, with the same vibe and lack individuality. #yawn
Anyways, long story Short, Paul left that job (and sadly his bromance with Jack) and started contracting for a top bloke, Gavin, in the city of melbourne, doing lots of renos, and solar heating (which is much more suited to paul and he really loved working for Gavin)… If you need any plumbing done in Melbourne CALL GAVIN, his got skills for days and will look after you! (check out the website below) Highland plumbing website
So a year or so later Jack qualified (whoo hoo) and was about to head to the snow for a snow season and needed some work, so he scored a few weeks work with Gav, and then the Bromance was just as romantic as ever. #bondedbywater
Jack moved to Torquay in this sweet pad…
Working here … Selling Coffee/skateboards (i know right, so trippy that Paul and Jack Both did Plumbing at the same time and now are both working with coffee) Check out the shop here…
Hanging out with these dudes… What I loved about all of Jacks mates up here was, that they are all extremely motivated in their life passions and they all support each other in that. Was really awesome to see. I wish I could do a blog on all of them. Really beautiful crew.

So we thought, “we miss Jack” Lets go see him!. #sowedid
