Servicing the Tea Gardens, Hawks Nest, Port Stephens and Hunter areas.



Originally from Forbes NSW growing up on a sheep and wheat farm and once completing school, Justin started his apprenticeship at Bathurst NSW back in 1995.

Since then he has gained experience working as a carpentry contractor in the Eastern suburbs, Northern Beaches and Inner West of Sydney completing a number of projects ranging from luxury residential new builds to major renovations on heritage terraces.

He has traveled overseas and worked in London completing loft conversions and extensive outdoor areas for a major garden architect in the West End.

Upon moving from Sydney to Tea Gardens he has worked for a luxury residential builder with the highlight and pleasure of being part of the team that built the NSW Master Builder award-winning “Lake House” private residence on the shores of North Pindimar.

Wanting further challenges and experiences he moved into a Commercial building, gained a Foreman’s position with a major Newcastle builder, and was the supervisor who completed the “Manor” nursing home in Tea Gardens. Other projects include numerous schools, major works at John Hunter Hospital, and aged care facilities. A highlight being the senior foreman and part of the team responsible for taking out the Newcastle Master Builders Commercial builder of the Year 2017 for “Opal Hillside” a multi-story nursing home in Mount Hutton.

Justin has recently launched  J&A Howarth Constructions at the beginning of 2018 offering Tea Gardens/ Hawks Nest and surrounding areas a fresh approach to high-quality custom homes/ renovations and extensions.
