Lee and Scott are two of our students from our Summer 2017 Floors & Counters classes. They’re also from Australia. This couple traveled over 8,000 miles to attend! Talk about a long trip.
Recently, they made the trip again to reunite with friends Pat and Bill, as well as Tom and Jean Eaton. Pat and Bill used to live Australia. After they moved to Minnesota, they took our Granicrete Floors & Counters Classes. When Pat and Bill shared what they’d learned with Lee and Scott, they knew they had to take the classes too. While attending class, the couples learned how to install Granicrete products, work with our colors and isopropyl alcohols, and how to use our epoxies and light-weight concrete.
Today, Pat uses Granicrete in commercial and residential projects. She’s done work in their coffee shop, The Bean, as well as their Air B&B homes. She even took the class with her sister Nora; they hope to start their own business together. Nora uses Granicrete on furniture that she sells, such as table tops
and resurfaced end tables.
Lee and Scott took their knowledge back to Australia and are starting their own epoxy company called Pro Surfaces-Australia. We’re so excited for their new adventure! Someday, we’d love to visit Lee and Scott – like with many of our students, we’ve become close friends with them over the years.
