Zane’s been in the trade for 12 years, mostly involved with residential newbuilds and light-commercial projects. He became a licensed building practitioner in 2018 and has an eye for doing things right. 

Zane is a excellent leader and has been the key promoter of Cabana's environmental systems, paving the way to a more sustainable outlook through our projects and through our people.  

On the weekend he can be found in his garden, climbing mountains or at the gym. Oh and don’t forget to say hi to his Border-Collie Charlie onsite too!  

Joel Sheely

Company Director

P. 022 282 7623

Joel’s been on the tools for 8 years. His career has consisted of working on re-clads, renovations, light commercial with the odd new build to spice things up every now and then. Joel’s favourite projects are creative “outside the box” jobs that test the boundaries of architecture. 

Joel drives the systems behind Cabana and ensures that projects run smoothly start to finish.

When he’s not swinging a hammer or lining the next sub-trade up, he’s down in  Ohakune carving the snow, or chasing waterfalls around the country!

Testimonials

"Awesome work done by Joel and Zane! Their communication was excellent and prompt. They came out to my house, took photos of the issue and gave me an approximate cost immediately. They sent through photos of the before and after with the final cost, and did an awesome job! Would highly recommend them as they were very punctual and professional. Would look to use them for any work in the future."

"Joel and Zane are professional, prompt with contact, organised, timely, and did a great job. I expanded the job from the original request into several other jobs (wooden stairs, and wood panel ceilings) and they were all done with a high level of skill and craftsmanship. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Joel and Zane for other jobs."

"Joel and Zane did a great job repairing a large section of native hardwood flooring. It was a tricky job getting the reclaimed boards to match the existing and required a lot of patience and skill to get the result I wanted. Really happy and would recommend and use again. Thanks guys!"
