Hi, my name is Darren, I specialise in outdoor entertainment areas, including pizza ovens (wood fired ovens) and barbecues, but extensions and new builds are no problem for me.


In the last ten years I have also gained a lot of experience and knowledge about bricklaying and general building, but also plastering, groundworks, bathroom tiling, painting, flooring and roofing.If I can't do it myself, I'll know someone who can help me do the job. Located in Ashford, I do jobs all over Kent.

I started bricklaying 17 years ago, when I studied bricklaying at South Kent College while doing a 5-year apprenticeship with R.J. Gibbs and sons. Here I learnt my trade via a one on one tuition. Wanting to be my own boss I decided to start my own company and be self-employed.
I love putting creativity into my brickwork and can bring to life any design in mind. The gallery provides examples of jobs I have completed and how they were created.
