‘It’s hard to find that time, especially given the demands of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic and recession.
‘So when my youngest daughter Lily wanted to build a cubby house for her school passion project, this was a great opportunity.’
Mr Morrison was spotted making several trips to Bunnings over recent weeks to pick up supplies.
His office released a compilation video that showcased the build from start to finish.
‘I am here with Lily and we are here to build a cubby house today,’ Mr Morrison says.
‘We’ve been to Bunnings. We’ve got all the wood. We’ve measured it all out and we’re all ready to go. This is quite a family project.’
Though, Mr Morrison didn’t just bang nails into the wood with a hammer.
He also accidentally hammered his left index finger, leaving him with a badly bruised and swollen nail.
Mr Morrison will spend Father’s Day with his wife Jenny and two girls, which includes his eldest daughter Abbey.

‘He was a loving husband to my mum Marion for 57 years.
‘He was a wonderful father to me and my brother Alan. He loved Jen as a daughter and was a devoted grandfather to our girls.
‘Love you Dad and well done good and faithful servant.’
