After moving to Australia, Curt worked as a welder and a water treatment system technician then began building high-end houses. He learned many different aspects of the building trade, including carpentry, plumbing, roofing, painting, cabinetry, brickwork, concrete work, tiling and landscaping. After moving back to Canada, he worked as an agriculture technician on a variety of equipment, including combines, tractors and semis, while running a ranch and custom combining operation.
