The Backspace Living Team

Trent Robinson and Josh Perry have combined their years of building and construction experience into a company they call, Backspace Living.

 They saw a wide open market to build granny flats that would make their customers’ friends say “why didn’t we think of that?”.


Trent has more than 20 years’ experience as a builder and is passionate in changing the perception people have of granny flats! He prides himself in creating a positive and healthy culture within the workplace where it’s not just a job it’s a lifestyle. Trent is heavily involved in the design and construction phase with a relentless approach of improvement and innovation.
