A LOCAL builder has received the ultimate tick of approval after having his high level of workmanship recognised and highlighted by a leading industry body. 

Lake Eacham’s Jesse Howe, of Howe Building was recently named Master Builders’ Queensland’s Far North Queensland rising star, a testament to providing top shelf builds for more than two decades.

Masters Builders Queensland is the top industry association that represents building and construction in Queensland – which makes the acknowledge quite significant.

“Jesse has been delivering amazing building projects in the Atherton Tablelands and beyond for the past 20 years,” a Master Builders’ QLD spokesperson said.

“He learned from a young age what it takes to deliver quality and innovative workmanship and prides himself on building great relationships with his clients.” 

The humble local was happy to gain the accolade. “It’s definitely a bit of a surprise, I’m humbled by it and feel fortunate to have claimed such an award,” Mr Howe told The Express. 

“We actually submitted an entry in the $450,000 - $550,00 individual home category and won that, so to then be named the rising star on top of that, was really special.”

Master Builders’ Queensland said Jesse and wife Tya have spent the past five years building their business on top of raising five children and taking care of a host of animals including 30+ head of cattle, six horses, chickens, pigs, guinea pigs, a cat and a much-adored dog.
