Our team consists of reliable, professional plumbers, electricians, tilers, drywallers, interior designers and architects.

  • Shane Murray Owner / Master Carpenter

    Shane has been running SMC since 2005, leading sizeable residential and commercial renovation and construction projects. He is well-known for quality craftsmanship, moving a renovation along at a quick pace and his people skills. Shane has built strong relationships with his clients, tradespeople and the contracting industry. He prides himself in providing a high caliber product and keeping his clients well-informed during the whole process. In his spare time, Shane likes to renovate his own houses and play hockey on his sport court with his two young boys and wife. Always found singing on the job site, Shane likes to play loud folk, bluegrass and Americana. His hobbies include mountain climbing, learning slide guitar, singing in choirs, wood carving and hanging out with the kids. With a degree in Humanities (Philosophy), Shane loves reading Rushdie, Nabokov, Harry Potter and that kind of weird stuff.

  • Chris Zumkeller

    An extremely talented carpenter, Chris is Shane’s personal spell checker and grammar corrector, a big job. A true intellectual, Chris earned top grades at UVic while finishing his Bachelor of Commerce. Nicknamed “Employee of the Month”, Chris thinks about the job even more than Shane. Once a talented golfer, now a weekend hacker, Chris is in charge of social media and the website for SMC. He ONLY likes Alan Jackson and isn’t really into people. It’s nothing personal, just so you know clients–in case you were hoping for a long conversation. For those curious clients, he is married. And we should mention that his wife is very loved by Shane’s kids.
  • Andrew Rose

    Andrew was nearly a professional soccer player but for some reason chose to work for SMC instead! With a degree in recreation and leisure studies, this big brain is a carpentry materials information specialist and fluent in Chiwawanese. He is SMC’s driver and is in top shape. Andrew has a strong connection to the beauty industry, always ensuring that Shane looks his best when on site and reminding him to get his hair cut. Killing zombies and terrorists in his living room in his spare time and hanging out with Jess, Andrew also owns a boat. Sorry, “Token Hot Guy” is taken.
  • Leith Murray

    The man with more energy than a 20 year old, Leith has been working for over 60 years and hasn’t missed a day’s work, even stat holidays. Though he would rather babysit Shane’s kids than work and can sometimes be found working his “other” job to complete his 70 hour weeks, Leith is a talented, charismatic individual. Extremely generous and with a heart of gold, Leith is loved by all. Leith earned a degree in agriculture and formerly sold farm equipment for Massey Ferguson. Not only is Leith a smart potato (get it?) with a talent for Lego, he is the most kind and even-tempered guy, but there is a reason that his grandchildren call him “Grumpa”. The only time Leith has ever got truly mad is when Shane backed over Leith’s scooter with his big truck. Boy, was he mad! For those clients who are 60 plus, the answer is always the same “Yep, he’s taken. Of course!”
  • Brodie Driemel

    Brodie is a shark biologist from Campbell River who happens to also be a talented carpenter. His true love is flying at great speeds down a hill strapped to a mountain bike. Brodie is an enthusiastic Canucks fan which is few and far between these days. A verbose conversationalist, Brodie is an advocate for speed reductions and bike lanes. SMC is lucky to have him on the crew!
