Meet Ashleigh Hiemstra – qualified carpenter / boutique builder

ASHLEIGH HIEMSTRA WAS ALWAYS DESTINED TO BE A BUILDER – YOU COULD SAY IT’S IN HER DNA

Ashleigh has been immersed in residential building from childhood. She’s the third generation of carpenters in her family.

Her mum was a registered builder in the 1990s – a time when very few women were involved in residential construction in Perth.

With such established ties to residential building, it’s no surprise Ashleigh decided to become a carpenter, just like her father and grandfather. But becoming a registered builder was always her main ambition.

She completed her apprenticeship in the family business, Banken Building, where she demonstrated her determination to excel as a carpenter.

Merge Building | Perth’s quality home builder

Next, Ashleigh focused on gaining practical building supervision experience and growing her knowledge of home building in Perth.

As soon as she was eligible to become a registered builder, she completed all the essential requirements to gain her:

  • Building Practitioner’s registration

  • Building Contractor’s registration

The final step was to start a business and continue the family tradition of renovating and building quality homes in Perth, Western Australia.

Merging traditional values with modern building practices

Ashleigh created Merge Building in 2018. The company name represents the merging of three generations of her family’s building experience, skills and traditions.

Her expertise in carpentry means that Merge Building is a boutique home builder that specialises in renovations and timber frame houses.

At the heart of her business is a genuine passion to help people turn their concept of a beautiful living space into a reality.
